A warm welcome for you and your horse.

“I was really nervous when I booked my first course but the atmosphere was so relaxed that me and my horse felt at home straight away, we learned loads and have made some life-long friends”  J.P

“I love coming to Ashen and being part of the “family”. V.T

I had the most fantastic time with my Boys last week at Ashen. It really is a very special place to be and where learning with the horses is so comfortable, so a BIG thank you.” M.S

“My trip to Ashen was the most positive and best thing I have ever done with and for my horse.”  S.H

Total immersion experience and value for your time and money.

“I work and have a family, lessons at home had to be shoe-horned in around real-life and I fell into the pattern of booking lessons, “same time next week”.  I was paying to be told the same thing week in, week out without making real progress.  By taking time out from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focusing on my relationship with my horse and booking two or three courses a year with Becky means my horse and me have made more progress, and actually saved money compared to my weekly lessons.” J.B

“I was not sure I would be able to continue improving at home but the clarity in your coaching means that I can – excellent and empowering.” R.T

“Me and ***** have been practising what we learned on our course. We are loving it! Schooling seems so much easier. I feel like I’m riding a different horse. I guess this stuff feels comfortable and makes sense to him, so he doesn’t argue anymore. I wish I’d found you years ago.” J.C
