What our clients say

Sean came and made perfect sense

I highly recommend Sean. I was so frustrated at my pony not loading after so many people tried. Sean came and made perfect sense in explaining the whole process and taught me! Today is a god day! My children are also delighted! Sean is a really nice guy as well!

Sean has a way with horses, an understanding and everything he says to explain why he does things makes sense

What can I say other than a huge thank you to Sean. I had a huge decision to make with Dusty and Sean gave me the answers to realise the best outcome for both myself and Dusty. Sean has a way with horses, an understanding and everything he says to explain why he does things makes sense. If you are struggling like I was with a horse that wasn’t straightforward Sean can help. Thank you again Sean ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I can highly recommend Sean to train any horse. He has the skills and ability

Sean has recently worked with my young horse Thunder. Thunder is a carriage horse who I've decided to ride to help his flexibity and enhance his skills, for the "horse driving trials" competitions. Sean has helped me out no ends, he's backed him and hacked him out, exposing him to a tarpaulin which has been placed on his back while ridden and he's walked over it.. I can highly recommend Sean to train any horse. He has the skills and ability. He is calm, caring and I never saw any harsh treatment. No coercive aids or bad handling. As Arnie says - "I'll be back".. Lindsay

I now have a confident and happy horse who is an absolute pleasure to ride and only 3 years oldv

With my work getting busy for me I decided to send my horse to Sean for training rather than give him time off. Best decision ever!! I now have a confident and happy horse who is an absolute pleasure to ride and only 3 years old. Sean also spent some time with me and gave me some useful pointers and exercises which I have taken onboard and implement daily when riding and handling my horse. It works!! Highly recommend and not just to people with problem horses as mine was not one of them. I wanted him bringing on so I could get on with my dressage training when he came back to me and I’m so happy and positive about the future now. Thank you Sean

Fiona Trew

since he has come back I’ve had no issues at all

Took my miserable pushy TB gelding to Sean as myself and my parents were losing confidence because he was taking advantage of us. He came back two weeks later with a completely different attitude to life! A few days training us how to deal with him and working with him during the first week has made him so much calmer and a nice horse to be around. He also used to get very stressed in the field and quite demanding when it came to dinner time and since he has come back I’ve had no issues at all, even going straight back home onto 24hr turn out for summer! I’ve also seen and ridden a pony who Sean had trained a couple of years ago and she is amazing! Such a cheeky little sweetheart

I’ve now got an extremely relaxed and flexible horse. Sean has been fantastic.

Sean has done a great job with my horse whose so big and straight, didn't know how to bend or where to put his feet which led to all sorts of chaos. I've now got an extremely relaxed and flexible horse. Sean has been fantastic.

Sharon Berry

Words cannot express the gratitude i have for Sean

Words cannot express the gratitude i have for Sean.  He has done a 100% amazing job starting my youngster off. He is so fabulous, patient, snd kind. Explanations of his work, reasons why etc explained throughly. You leave his care feeling 100% happy . Cannot recommend this superb horse trainer enough if there's ever 1 major thing you ever do with your horse put it with sean and you will be guaranteed a positive outcome. Thankyou so much Sean for all your hard work.

Sarah Symons

had her loading herself within a matter of minutes without distressing the horse

Cannot thank Sean enough. I’d been stuck in a car park for hours because my horse refused to load after an event. Several people tried to help and we tried every strategy you could think of - food, lunge ropes, walking another pony through, you name it we tried it - and nothing worked. I was at my wit’s end and Sean came out on no notice and had her loading herself within a matter of minutes without distressing the horse or using any special equipment. I will definitely be arranging some groundwork sessions and would totally recommend him to anyone having problems with their horse.

Janine Abraham

Turned my bucking bronco into a lovely, quiet horse to ride and not to mention the loading

Couldn’t recommend Sean enough. Turned my bucking bronco into a lovely, quiet horse to ride and not to mention the loading. It used to take 3 hours + of fighting with Sanjo to get him into a lorry and now he loads himself! I am very very glad I sent him to Sean and would definitely recommend him to anyone!

Michelle Hopkins

In 10 mins he had him going lovely

My horse had a great and rather spontaneous session with Sean today. He was visiting a friends horse to work on loading. I learnt a lot just from watching the training take place and then Sean offered to work on some ground work/lunging that I have been struggling with for my horse. In 10mins he had him going lovely and gave me lots of tips on bits I have been struggling with for a long time. I’m now looking forward to some clinics starting up once restrictions allow! Thanks Sean!

Absolutely would recommend Sean for backing and breaking in horses.

Absolutely would recommend Sean for backing and breaking in horses. He took on Asti who was so scared of his own shadow and you couldn't get on him, he was scared of people being behind him from his withers onwards wouldnt stand by a mounting block as scared of the person being up high too. Sean has done an amzing job and Asti is now fully rideable and trusting in people, I now get on from a mounting block without any hesitations and can ride him out on hacks. Without Sean's help I wouldnt be able to ride my horse and I dont no what I would have done. He keeps you posted with updates of how your horse is getting on and when ready to visit and time to ride he is very supportive. I was very nurvous getting back on Asti and Sean was very accommodating and helpful to get me past this, now I have Asti home we are flying. I love that Sean wants updates and is happy to take calls if I have any questions so you still have all the support even if you arent at his yard. 5* and highly recommend him.

best decision I ever made and the best money I’ve ever spent

Sending George to Sean for remedial training was the best decision I ever made and the best money I've ever spent. After 4 years of being thrown off I had completely lost my confidence and so had my horse. We had tried everything from vets to supplements and even hypnotism! Everything that the internet promised was a magic cure but none of it was. I was on the edge of considering early retirement for him (age 9!) when we found Sean. The moment we met him he spoke total sense and I knew this would be the right thing for George and I. In a matter of weeks George is a changed horse and I am a changed rider. We finally trust each other and enjoy riding again. I sent George to Sean to iron out the flybucking, rearing, broncing, spooking, leaping among many other things but what I hadn't expected and means even more than all that is that he's given me my confidence back, and my ability to enjoy riding my horse again. Thank you Sean, I cannot thank you enough.
