About Me

My name is Lachlan Phillips. I am an Australian Horseman, many people call me by my nickname; Lockie, if that’s easier for you.

I have a background as a professional ballet dancer which taught me how to express complex feelings, ideas and concepts through a physical feeling.  Horsemanship is much like Dance, the mind and body working as one integrated unit to communicate without spoken language.

Today, I run a Horsemanship training and Equine rehab business.  My goal is to help people with their horses to be happier, healthier and more successful horse people no matter their discipline or interest with horses.

After many years in Northern and Eastern Europe I am now located in Southern Spain, in the Granada Province.

I am licensed, insured and experienced to perform my job to a high standard of commitment and results.   I am incredibly passionate and enthusiastic about my work, have a strong work ethic, good communication skills, unusual patience, accurate intuition for horses and people and a dry Australian sense of humour.  When working with horses sometimes being able to laugh is very important!

I am ready to meet you and your horses for…

– Horsemanship lessons and clinics.

Sanson is a 10 year old Hispano Breton gelding, my personal horse.  He is the guiding force behind my life and my business.  Most importantly, he is my friend and best teacher.    A horse like him comes only once in a lifetime.  He and I have something very unique and special which can be taught to others.   Much more is written about our life together in my blogs.  More horses are soon to join my personal herd. Stay tuned! 😉


I have named my business EXPAT EQUESTRIAN because it describes who I am and what I stand for.  Good horsemanship is more than a single horse, a single method or a single idea.  Good horsemanship is transcendent of all cultures, methods, sports and horse breeds.  It is my goal that each of my clients can gain something from me which can help them be better with ANY horse ANYWHERE.
