Fully insured for all services we offer.

Richards unique skill set means he is able to deal with the most difficult of problems with horses, a combination of therapy, ground d work and ridden work combined with using the best practitioners in the country results in a holistic approach to training that isn’t found anywhere else.

When a horse arrives for training they will undergo a thorough assessment, this includes looking at teeth, back, assessing saddle fit and construction as well as a ground work as ridden assessment. This will take place during the first week and means that Richard can plan out the horses work and allows the owner track the horses progress and helps them understand where they are progressing to.

Owner visits and participation in the work is encouraged, Richard finds it advantageous if the horse is ridden, where appropriate, by the owner before they return home to ensure that the work is understood and they are happy and confidant moving forward with the horses education on their return. He also offers a follow up service (milage dependant), this can be coaching sessions at home to ensure training is orogressing in the right track or meeting you at a show or other locations to coach you on-site. Once you take your horses home you aren’t just abandoned!
