About Us

Merson Hill Sport Horses is owned and operated by EC certified coach Ruth Bowman.

Ruth has a deep background in eventing with successful competition experience in the UK up to Intermediate.  An avid foxhunter since childhood, she brings a fearless and practical approach to jumping.  Her program builds a solid foundation in riders and horses resulting in great confidence on both sides of a riding partnership.  Never one to put a ‘square peg in a round hole’, Ruth works with horse and rider based on their strengths and weaknesses.

Having trained and developed many of her own horses, she can work with green horses to help you bring them along from the ground up.  Ruth’s current competition horse in development is the young Irish Sport Horse Double Down. This athletic young horse has just started competing and is going to be exciting to watch develop.
