"Ashley has coached on quite a few of my Active Rider camps and I have found her to be both reliable and popular. It is most important whilst running the best residential training camps in the UK to keep up the quality of trainers. We monitor our high trainer standards by attendee feedback – each trainer on the camp is marked out of a score of 10 and a free text comment is given. Ashley continually receives averages over 8/10 scores and her feedback is excellent. Personally I enjoyed Ashley coaching at our Young/Novice horse camp – the feedback we got was transformational to some of the riders – as well as other bookings - we re-booked Ashley for this event for 2014.
I now can almost guarantee that my customers will have an excellent training experience with Ashley. I would not hesitate to recommend her training for grass roots up to competition riders. Not many coaches can cover that range – Ashley can."
"Ashley is an enthusiastic and sympathetic dressage trainer. She has coached me on several horses over the years and in every case has developed me as a rider, improved the horses way of going and strengthened our combined capabilities as a team. She has a great way of communicating and I've walked away from every lesson feeling I've learnt something new. Ashley's positive and effective training enabled me to achieve something I'd never even dreamed I'd be able to do - competing at the BD Nationals! I'd recommend her to anyone whether you are a novice rider just wanting a bit more confidence or you want to conquer the dressage world"
"Ashley is a fabulous instructor with a great dept of knowledge & experience. Excellent communication skills & the patience of a saint.
No matter what level you are at Ashley will tailor the lesson to your requirements, instilling confidence & the ability to go away & practice yourself at home.
She has helped me with a particularly difficult horse, we have gone from rearing & spinning to competing & winning. I could not have achieved this without her.
I cannot recommend Ashley enough."
"Ashley took me under her very experienced wing when I had re broken my very scared Arabian mare, she had previously been badly started and was a very afraid little horse.
Ashley was prepared to work with us to get us confident and up to scratch to do a little showing! Not a job for the feint hearted, but Ashley was fully prepared!
The difference in my mare is immense, Ashley worked through a lot of issues with us, changing my girl from a very novice, nervous horse, to a very soft, confident and forward little horse, who won her first showing class on our debut!
I cannot thank Ashley enough for the support and faith she has shown us, and still does, our training sessions are amazing, and we are still learning, still progressing!
Thanks Ashley, you will always be highly recommended by Bob and I."

"For the last 6 months I have been riding for Ashley on one of her highly well trained horses. She has taught me more in these past 6 months about dressage than I have learnt in the past 4 years of riding dressage. She has taught me how to ride correctly and have a light contact, using my seat properly. I have been out to numerous competitions getting placed every time in strong classes. The last competition I gained my first ever first place rosette on a brilliant score of 72.20% something I never thought I would acheive.She has given me more confidence and experience in my riding, providing me with homework, so that I have something new to work on after every lesson!
I'm excited for the future riding for Ashley, and excelling in dressage further.
I really can't thank Ashley enough for her friendly approach to teaching I reccomend her over any teacher I have had."
