Nicola has gone above and beyond in helping me to achieve success with my horses. Her mentoring has improved my confidence and ridden technique. Nicola is very talented and rides every horse as an individual. I would recommend any owner to entrust their horse to Nicola with complete confidence that it will have great training and care.
I contacted Nicola through word of mouth in 2021 looking for a base for my event horse. Since then, she has devoted so much time and effort into us. All horses are treated as individuals and nothing is ever too much trouble. Recently, she has taken on the ride of my Nov/2* horse and has done an outstanding job. Nicola is a true professional with a wealth of knowledge and experience. I have hugely benefitted and enjoyed learning from her in all aspects of horses.
Nicola has been an outstanding horsewoman for 3 of our horses, which have gone on livery with her. She rides in a consistent style, firm but fair, getting them all using themselves and working through correctly from behind. She schooled a 4yo for a month to carry on his very early training. 3 years on and he has had some great double clears and excellent results at BE Novice this summer. Nicola brought a mare back into work as a grassroots horse, after having a foal. Our teenage daughter's Intermediate eventer needed regular riding to allow her to compete in the run up to her A Levels. It helped so much that Nicola was so flexible about us riding there, and taking the horse home for the holidays. Nicola treats all the horses in her care as her own, making suggestions and discussing any situation, but without being dogmatic. She has such a lovely friendly yard, where all our horses have been very happy, with good facilities including a treadmill. I highly recommend sending horses to Nicola whether as a livery, for schooling, for sale or any other reason.
