Sharon is amazing!! She really knows how to explain herself easily so I understand her. Horse riding instructors terminology has put me off lessons in the past but me and my horse absolutely love our regular lessons with Sharon. Me and my friend who also has a lesson before us ALWAYS come away smiling our heads off and we are always full of pride with how our lesson went. Sharon is so positive and makes us both feel like we are actually quite good riders 👍💕🤗🐴😂

I would absolutely recommend Sharon! I have been having lessons for a few months with her.. And I cannot believe the changes seen in my horse and myself. The way Sharon explains things, why we ride the way we do is just amazing. I have learnt so so much in such a short time. The way Sharon understands my horse and can tell what he is going to do before he does it is outstanding. I absolutely love my lessons and come away feeling so happy I have achieved so much in so little time. She is so knowledgable and experienced I can ask her advice on anything equine and always get help and such useful advice! Cannot rate her enough! She is fantastic!

I first had lessons with Sharon on my jumping pony Lucky. I never thought he would be a "dressage pony" and just focused on putting in a reasonably calm test! But by the time I sold Lucky, we had scored in the 70s and come 8th individually at PC area dressage! And now with my new horse, Podge, who had not been schooled much at all, the progress we have made after only a few months is unbelievable! I can't thank Sharon enough for the change in my view of dressage and the change in my horses!

After the pony being a bit naughty in the early days we contacted Sharon and ask her to help our daughters confidence which had been seriously dented! she has slowly helped her regain her confidence and taught in a kind and friendly way that my daughter understands and responds well too. She is now back out there cantering and jumping!

Sharon has schooled and looked after our horses quite a number of times. I find her prompt, professional and extremely hard working and honest. She has shown great attention to detail with the horses and taken more time to ensure their safety. She keeps to their routine which is important for them. Our yard is spotless on return with very relaxed horses. Sharon updates me regularly on the horses.

Sharon is a fantastic instructor and her speciality is nervous riders, she picked me up from rock bottom 3 years ago and has worked wonders. My confidence was in tatters after 3 very bad falls but with Sharons help my riding has come on in leaps and bounds and she has given me so much confidence. Without Sharon's help I would not be doing what I am today. Highly recommended.

Sharon is a fantastic instructor, she has helped me with my riding for the past 4 years and has worked wonders, my riding has come on in leaps and bounds and she has given me so much confidence that I took the plunge to take on my own horse who we are now just starting out competing with. Without Sharon's patience,guidance,training and motivation I would not be where I am today. Every lesson is well planned and we achieve so much within that time that I always finish on a high. Highly recommended, you don't know what you are missing until you have had a lesson.

A lifelong riding club level competitor and pleasure rider in middle age, I was about to give up early last year, having lost my confidence, along with my horse of the past 15 years. I had a lovely new horse, but unfortunately had a bad fall off him, and was about to sell him. I then heard of Sharon, and thought that I would have a lesson as a last ditch attempt to move forward. I have to say that I haven\\\'t looked back since. Sharon was very sensitive and patient with me at the start, and week by week my confidence gradually increased. Within a few months, I gained the confidence to enter an unaffiliated dressage competition, which led to lots more and he has now won loads of ribbons! Sharon is extremely perceptive and has a brilliant way of explaining things, always coming up with an analogy that makes things clear. My extremely green cob is transforming beyond recognition, as predicted by Sharon when she met him. I really cannot recommend Sharon enough for riders of any level.

I have been having lessons with Sharon for just under a year and I can highly recommend her. We both had individual issues...Casper being very reluctant to go forward while schooling and was known to have a total paddy in the school. Sharon thought outside the box and used unique ideas and a calm and encouraging manner, not only is he more forward going but he is a much happier horse. Sharon is very motivated and it is contagious and I always finish my lessons feeling I have achieved something, sometimes just a simple oh I see and sometimes it's an eureka moment. Casper and I have still have quite a journey to go, but we are enjoying the experience thanks to Sharon.

I can't praise Sharon enough. She is a fantastic instructor. Very patient and particularly good with nervous riders and confidence issues. I was a completely different rider after lessons with Sharon. I trained for my BHS stage 1 whilst she was based in Yorkshire with her and couldn't have wished for a better instructor. I went to Sharon a nervous wreck with bad habits galore and she helped me to change into a confident, calm and quiet rider. Would recommend her for all disciplines

I started with Sharon a couple of months ago. I had been struggling with my rather sharp mare for well over a year, having bought her after a break from riding of about 25 years! Sharon has been correcting my riding position to give me a safer seat, teaching me to deal with spookiness and napping in a calm and unflustered way, and generally getting me and my horse into a happier place. I was very close to giving up on my mare because there were times when she really scared me, and I am 45 years old and wanting to accompany my daughter on her little pony. Sharons work with us is going such a long way to make all that possible. Being coached by Sharon is always a laugh, always hard work, and always rewarding. I feel incredibly grateful to her and would recommend her without any shadow of doubt.

Sharon is without doubt the best dressage trainer I have ever had. The difference in my horse's way of going since having lessons with her is incredible. Plus she makes it so simple! She is amazing in every way - a great teacher, never stressed out, always friendly, great fun! Her lessons are truly inspiring. I would encourage everyone and anyone to make the journey to train with Sharon - it will provide a turning point in any horse and rider's learning journey.
