''I got into contact with Beth when seeking professional guidance to help teach my young Welsh cob ground work which he was lacking due to being untouched. I visited quite a lot of online professional trainers/behaviourists however none provided the training techniques I wanted for my horse. I came across Beth's website and more or less straight away I knew she could really help me and my youngester as she provided the training I was seeking and that is positive reinforcement without involving fear or pain.
Beth was very approachable, friendly but yet professional. She made me feel calm and confident when handling my youngester. We had a one hour session and both me and my cob enjoyed it! He responded well to the training methods and I can already see quite a lot of changes in his behaviour and fears.
Beth also gave me a useful booklet full of guidance and advice I can easily access when stuck or for when Beth is not around, I am now excited for the future with my new hairy friend and I can not wait for our next session!
Thank you Beth for giving me a massive confidence boost and making this process enjoyable! ''

''Plainly and simply I don’t believe my horse would still be here if it wasn’t for Beth. Orphaned as an 8 week old foal and lacking that vital education only his dam could have provided Rafferty had some unpredictable and unacceptable behaviours that were becoming more frequent and more worrying as he got bigger and stronger. We had tried a couple of other well known methods for addressing undesirable behaviour and weren’t really making any long lasting progress: the negative behaviours Rafferty exhibited would keep reoccurring. I contacted Beth in absolute desperation wondering whether I was going to have to put my beautiful boy to sleep. Beth went above and beyond to help Rafferty and I. She assessed him and then put together an individualised plan for him which we then followed according to his progress and needs on a very flexible Rafferty-led basis. This has been very successful and progress was seen more quickly than anticipated. He is now happily settled in a loan home and he is a relaxed and happy horse. Progress continues with Beth’s methods being followed by his new owner.
Throughout the process Beth has been incredibly professional yet kind and understanding and genuinely concerned for Rafferty’s welfare and future. She has always been reliable and communicated frequently and clearly how he’s doing and where we were up to.
I can’t thank her enough and recommend her without reservation.''

''I would highly recommend Beth’s services. Her expertise were invaluable in dealing with my rescue pony who exhibited fear aggression including biting after being abused and abandoned. At first he couldn’t be touched at all but with Beth’s help and advice I can now touch him all over, lift his feet, put a head collar on him, lead him off his field and on streets and walk him onto a trailer. The welfare of the pony was Beth’s utmost priority and through the improvements to his environment she suggested, he became much happier, calmer and more responsive to training. Beth’s training was based on positive reinforcement the pony was kept as happy as possible so it was the kindest and fairest method. Throughout all our contact and sessions Beth has been extremely friendly and professional. She has provided an excellent and effective service and I couldn’t be more pleased.''

"Beth was recommended to me when I was struggling to teach ground work to my Welsh Section D youngster. Although he's a lovely natured horse he was also extremely willful and was behaving like a tank, barging, and nipping in the stable, being led, having rugs on etc making simple things very stressful.
I have to admit before her initial visit I was rather skeptical as to whether Beth's training methods would work. She emailed an overview of the session afterwards and homework for me to do with my horse in between visits. I noticed a huge improvement in my horse's ground work after only a few sessions with Beth and I now have much happier horse whose so much easier to handle and the nipping completely stopped. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beth to anyone who has a horse with any behavioural issues or who simply wants to make a good horse better! I'm now convinced her training works in a way that benefits horse and owner alike."
