“We had a great time, thank you very much indeed. Katie thoroughly enjoyed her training and is now going to quote Johnny at every moment – and she’s certainly improved her seat on horses beyond recognition. It was a fantastic opportunity to make the pony to horse transition… and on such good horses. She was very very excited and pleased to feel she’d made such a lot of progress. Mike thoroughly enjoyed his lessons with Jackie – he felt the jumping was no longer such a daunting thing – once properly taught and on a good horse! We loved all of it – the gite, the pool, the area, the horses, and you were all very kind and friendly, so thank you very much indeed… we would love to come back again.”
