What others say about us

Kate Bridgewater

I had some hang ups about my riding. I had been working for over two years trying to get over my issues without much success. Amanda and I had a session over the phone and she gave me homework to do. Well! Within ten minutes of my first ever lesson with Amanda, I had happily cantered round the school on both reins!!!! This was a massive step for me (silly to others, but it was my hang up). Amanda said that it would be my favourite gait, and she is correct.
Amanda is a very clever lady, who helps you to feel good about yourself, who is positive and helps you to think differently. I would 100% recommend her help if you lack confidence and want to get back to riding “the way we used too”. Thank you Amanda x x x

Confidence Workshop:  I’ve found the workshop to be extremely beneficial. Being given the tools I need to remain in a positive mindset has set me up for future challenges that I can now embrace. The hypnotherapy was very relaxing and a great way to start off the correct mindset. Thank you very much!

Confidence Workshop:  I thoroughly enjoyed today’s workshop.  It was a lot of information to take in, but I am going to take the methods away today and keep testing them out.  I have come away from the workshop feeling calmer and content and I am hoping the exercises prove effective in my future.  Thank you very much.

Confidence Booster Workshop: Really enjoyed the hypnosis having never done it before and I can see how it will come in useful in keeping me positive.  Loved the technique with using cartoons and that will definitely help me put my demons to rest!
