"Beduino, my four year old stallion, has returned home feeling really relaxed and calm, yet very responsive and forward thinking with his training. This young man has really grown up and also looks in superb condition. I would highly recommend you both. Thank you so much".

"I am so glad that I sent My Andalusian filly (Bonny) to Emma and James to be backed and bought on. Being a clever horse with strong character she could have so easily "gone wrong" , but I am over the moon with the results they have achieved. Bonny has made steady progress, and now id well adjusted, perfectly mannered horse who is showing allot of promise and is a pleasure to ride. I can honestly say that they have bought out the best in her. I trust them wholeheartedly and am confident about every aspect of her training and care".
" I have worked with many international trainers but will continue to send my young horses to be started for their ridden careers to Emma Thomas and James Smith. Their experience in the horse world, coupled with their complete understanding of this very sensitive breed, is, in my opinion, an extremely rare combination. Emma and James ensure that any young horse receives a calm, sensible and consistent start and proves that patience and a relaxed attitude always reap rewards. They have also trained, ridden and competed several of my older horses at National and County level, with excellent results. I would highly recommend Emma and James without hesitation."
