tantrums and training

fantastic horse, nice place apart from the smelly show loo, Helen/Irma patient & good, Sara however had me in tears with her yelling tantrums. Spent many hours in lessons and found her to be quick to lose her temper. Red mist descends...

Great Place

Excellent place to train, 5* livery facilities. My horse has been on schooling livery on several occasions, nothing is too much trouble. My horse has been well cared for every time.
Sara brings out the best in the person she teaches and the horse. Would highly recommend.
The team are equally fabulous with my 6 year old.

Great teaching and stunning horses!

I’ve had lessons with both Helen and Rachel and each of them has easily tailored to what I would like to get out of the lesson. The horses on the yard are stunning horses that are great to learn on, develop your riding skills or in my case relearn and revisit memories of competing myself. I throughly enjoy coming here to ride and learning how to ride once again!
