“I had an Absolutely wonderful lesson very rare to find such amazingly well schooled and sensible Dressage horses available to ride advanced movements in the UK! (Which costs huge money trust me!) cannot recommend it enough Lottie is a fab instructor, to the point, which gets immediate results! I learnt a lot about myself as a rider in a short amount of time. Highly recommend!” – Kath Jones – UK
