In August 2010, thanks to you Madeleine, I bought my first horse Badger! You spotted him, felt we would suit each other and encouraged me to try him out. Inexperienced as I was, I took the, not so easy, for a fifty + year old plunge! I was totally smitten, and after a second try decided to, for better or worse, till death do us part etc, go for it! Best decision ever! You coached me on him , and though he was a strong divil , we prevailed! Four years on he is still my joy!!
Thanks M ! You opened up new horizons for me! Also you found a terrific new owner, Ella, for my Daughter Kirsti's first, and much loved Rockey!
Ever grateful, Bernie xx
I recently enlisted Madeline’s help following my decision to buy my own horse late last year. We discussed the criteria that was important to me and all in all found the entire experience easy and hassle free. Madeline is professional, friendly, and driven, and most of all knows horses. Even after my purchase, Madeline has been available to answer my questions and help the transition go smoothly. One of the most important things is she is committed to her clients and keen to provide support. I was sold on her talent, quality of care, and the quality of training my horse has been given. I would and will recommend Madeline to anyone who is serious about progressing their riding skills both in the arena and out on the trail.
In July 2012 I got back in the saddle after a break from horses of ten plus years. My first lesson was with Madeleine and I really enjoyed it and couldn’t wait to go back. Madeleine is an excellent coach, who knows how to challenge me just the right amount and make training sessions interesting and varied. I would not always have been the most confident of riders but thanks to Madeleine I am much more confident and determined now. Training does not last just for an hour, Madeleine makes sure I have a plan and exercises to work on between lessons and if I am struggling with something she always has a solution.
One of the biggest things I have to thank Madeleine for is finding me my perfect first horse. She really has a gift for matching horses and riders. Since I bought my lovely Cyrus, she has helped me so much from horse care skills to schooling and preparing us to start competing.
I feel really lucky to have Madeleine as my coach, and I am definitely a better rider because of her.
