It is a pleasure to see her when she arrives for my lesson. She gets bombarded with questions and is always happy to give advice and help. I’m in my sixties and was lacking confidence following my hip replacement. In the last year I have gone from someone who couldn’t ride without holding on to a neck strap to a much more happy confident rider with ambitions for next year! I like her sympathetic approach to me and our horses.
Straighter and stronger!
"Fiona did an amazing job with my ex racehorse who needed rehabilitating after an injury and who was very weak and unbalanced. He is now so much straighter and stronger thanks to Fiona’s work. She understood how to approach a complicated problem and make some really significant improvements. He’s now going much better and I have my horse back. Thank you!"
Super confident and happy again!
"Neave had her first time jumping since breaking her arm, 2 years ago next week. she stopped riding after her fall. Now after 5 lessons she's super confident and happy back riding. Thanks so much Fiona Dent for your confidence giving lessons. Very proud mummy today. "
"I couldn't recommend Fiona highly enough.
She has been teaching my 5 year old daughter for 7 months and the progress she has made is astonishing. She is very flexible, positive and always makes the lessons fun. She is very approachable and riding lessons are always a highlight of the week. So much so that my 3 year old son has also insisted in having lessons as well!"
"I can't recommend Fiona highly enough. Very empathetic towards both me and my horse. And listened to me helping me to move forward in a way I was physically able to do (as I'm disabled) such a lovely lady can't wait till my next lesson."
A great understanding...
"I had Fiona for 3 year when I had difficulty with my first horse.
I was really scared of him and she made confident again and we made some real progress together.
Not only that she gave up her time to help me pass my BHS PTT exam as she has a great understanding of teaching dyslexic students and gave me a greater understand for what was needed for my pony club exam as I was completely In the dark.
I would highly recommend Fiona to anyone at any level of riding ability!"
Much happier relaxed horse
"I recently got a new horse, after 6 years off riding, and I was finding him difficult. In only 2 short sessions Fiona was able to identify the issues, resulting in a much happier relaxed horse (and rider!!)
She is happy to answer my many questions and has been a massive help to me and my brood of greedy ponies.
I couldn't recommend Fiona highly enough."
