Iain and Grace


The art of a good teacher is to communicate in a style and use language which the individual pupil can understand, absorb, remember and apply. We all take in information in different ways so a good teacher must be adaptable. Lessons should also be fun, something to look forward to. I am a novice but my horse Grace isn’t – she’s a 17.2 ex-eventer and hunter. I was clear about what I was looking for in an instructor and after one trial lesson with Lizzie I knew I had found the right person. My riding is improving quickly because she communicates all her knowledge in a way which makes perfect sense, she just has a great way of explaining things. Lizzie also really understands horses and is helping both me and Grace to become a much better team and get the best from each other. Positivity, empathy, encouragement, patience, kindness, understanding are all words to describe the way Lizzie teaches …… and we laugh a lot too!

Cinny has to look super smart for her competitions, I have to say she is the easiest chestnut Arab mare to handle and clip!! im sure your very proud Susan.

 I bought myself a beautiful 'forever' horse who I loved dearly. However, it soon became apparent that my horse had some serious behavioral issues which lead to me feeling completely over horsed and sadly losing my nerve. 

 
Lizzie was recommended to me by a close friend so I contacted Lizzie and am so grateful I did.
 
Lizzie's yard is beautifully calm and relaxed as is Lizzie herself. My horse has progressed exceptionally well under Lizzie's care and tuition and she has worked hard and sympathetically to overcome his issues. 
 
At all times Lizzie has kept me up to date with his progress and has always made me more than welcome to visit him and to watch his schooling sessions etc. This has really helped me come to terms with and accept, that my lovely horse is not right for me. I am now relying on Lizzie's help and expertise in finding my boy right home where he can go on and compete and have what I'm sure will be a very successful career.
 
I have no hesitation in recommending Lizzie's equine services to anyone, she is thoroughly 'down to earth' and professional and can't thank her enough for all her help.

"I just thought you might like to know that Lordy’s settling in just fine.  I've hacked him out round the lanes and across fields and he hasn't put a foot wrong. He gets on well with his new field mate and is relaxed in his stable – they’ll be out at night soon too, as soon as our fields are up to it. He really is well-behaved – you did a very good job on him!"

'I have a fantastic field on the New Forest but there is no electricity so I was pleased to find someone who could clip without the need for a plug! I came across Lizzie a few winters back for clipping and what a great job she does! Quick but calm approach and through our chats whilst Bronson was being clipped we arranged to start having some lessons with Lizzie. Bronson was about 16 when we started, we weren't looking to be dressage stars or jumping addicts but just to tidy up a few areas that would help me out hacking with him, and this was no trouble for Lizzie. Always on time and gave time to answer any questions I had (even if I may have made her late!) Good full lessons, never felt we were being taught more than our means but were pushed to improve, really pleased with where we got to, unfortunately arthritis now stops us having lessons, but when I am able to get another horse I will be back with Lizzie for more lessons!'

"I have known Lizzie for about two years, I was at the end of my tether with my youngster debating whether or not to sell him but Lizzie has turned him around from a yob to a competition horse/potential event horse, she has even given me the confidence to take him around a few hunter trials and take part in dressage competition and the odd show jumping class. Lizzie competes on Maveric at ODE and is hoping to take him up to BE level next year."


From Lizzie:

Firedance Maveric on the left trying out Elementary dressage for his first time coming home with a 2nd such a good boy and a pleasure to ride now, thank you Michele for giving me the opportunity to compete him.
