Vicki and Amanda have always enjoyed the challenge of training horses to produce light, soft, well balanced and responsive mounts. Their unique techniques produce well schooled horses that are a pleasure to ride and compete. Many of the horses and ponies that Vicki and Amanda have produced have gone on to be very successful at top levels of competition, including a selection of Grand Prix show jumping horses and ponies, Show Hunter title winners and others that excel in dressage, eventing and showing.
SCHOOLING, Assessments, COMPETING AND SALE PREPARATION
The correct schooling and conditioning of sport horses and ponies is fundamental. Establishing a correct topline, working softly into the contact, basic lateral movements and teaching horses to jump are important parts of the horse's development... We have been schooling and competing horses for many years, across all disciplines and the results speak for themselves.

OUR NATURAL FEEL, PATIENCE AND EXPERIENCE PRODUCE SOFT, RESPONSIVE HORSES.
STARTING YOUNG SPORT HORSES AND PONIES
We believe that champion sport horses need the correct education from the very beginning. Over many years Vicki has established skills and unique techniques that continue to produce soft, confident and responsive horses that are a pleasure to handle and ride. She has a natural feel for her horses and responds to every horse as an individual, allowing the horses to progress through the different stages of training as they are ready. Her techniques produce results quicker than most, with horses and ponies often exceeding the expectations of their owners.
THE BASICS ARE NON NEGOTIABLE... YOUNG HORSES SHOULD BE SOFT, RESPONSIVE AND ENJOY THEIR WORK.
