Cheryl is able to work with riders at all levels and has a great ability in being able to identify different methods to help you get the best out of your horse. Extremely knowledgeable in many aspects of equine care and training.M Mamas: Owner and rider
Great instructor who’s focus is really on both you and your horse and how best to work together to get the best out of your horse. Has the absolute patience of a saint (my horse Bobby and I have both pushed her to the limit, I’m sure). Great knowledge of both riding, anatomy (of horse and rider) and psychology all of which has an impact on what horse and rider can achieve and the limitations this can set. Would absolutely recommend her.T Sweet: Owner and rider
Cheryl has been teaching me for about 6 years and I couldn’t recommend her enough! Cheryl has been with me every step of the way with my horse Sunny and has been a huge support! The improvement since I bought Sunny is massive and this is all down to our regular lessons and Cheryl’s advice along the way. She also really focuses on the rider and is always giving me tips to improve my riding. Cheryl has so much knowledge and experience and I really would recommend her to any rider!L Brightwell: Owner and rider
Cheryl has worked with both my mares. Both had a routine check and were slightly sore in some areas. Cheryl spent a lot of time with them and giving them a good massage. They were like different horses after! One was uncomfortable and wouldn’t stand to mount, now she doesn’t move. So happy with her service absolutely 5 star recommendation 😊C Mepham: Owner
Had my first gym session for a while yesterday. Cheryl wrote a really great programme for me. It was hard work, well structured and she was very quickly able to alter what I was doing when my lack of fitness required it! Was left with the programme which will be workable whether I have just 15 minutes or an hour to spare. And the real bonus is I can still move today... just about! Would definitely recommend Cheryl to anyone, regardless of fitness level. She has a mountain of knowledge and can write a programme to suit your individual needs.M Mamas: Personal training client
Cheryl has been teaching me for years and now sees my horse Sunny for monthly massages. Sunny is quite difficult and suspicious following an operation but Cheryl has taken her time to gain his trust and now is able to work on him and make him more comfortable. She uses great techniques and really makes a difference to the horse 🤩!L Brightwell: Owner and rider

I reserve the right to refuse to ride or train any horse which is sick or lame, and to make recommendations for the welfare of the horse, such as referral to a Vet, saddler or Equine dentist.
Before riding any horse, I will either see the horse ridden first, or assess the horse from the ground using all and any methods necessary eg lunging. Detailed history of horse will be taken before first ride.
Owners are expected to provide their own third party liability insurance for themselves and their horse. Riding is a risk sport, which owners and riders take part in at their own risk. Riders are responsible for the suitability of the horse they ride. Owners and riders should consider taking out personal accident insurance.
