Comments: I have trained with J-A since I was 8 years old and I have not only learnt skills as a rider but also horsemanship and hard work.

Throughout the years Julie-anne has supported my riding career by not only helping me choose the correct horse to learn on but to also educate the horses in areas that were beyond my experience. I have progressed from a beginner (at 8 years old) to competing my third horse Astro at a pre novice level and knocking on the door of 1 star. Julie-anne has also taught me the in's and out's of horse management including Diet, Floating/Transport and Daily care.

Recently I have been competing a horse with a severe case of Anxiety and Julie-anne has supported me and helped train myself and the horse to be managed when competing in Eventing. Looking forward to another 18 years training with J-A!
