I am so lucky that Michael was able to ride my horse over 7 weeks of lockdown. He did an amazing job and I came back to a super well balanced canter, responsive, forward thinking and still relaxed horse. Michael is such a kind and thinking rider, who is also able to explain what he is doing and why, so that you can get the most out of any lesson. I can’t recommend Michael highly enough, he also took super care of my boy. Thanks so much Michael - you made a tough time so much better.

Mike is very hard working and has a genuine love of the horse, he is a sympathetic and effective rider who constantly trains horses with softness and ease. He is disciplined, determined, and dedicated to bringing the best out of every horse or horse and rider combination he works with. He is a great communicator who puts all levels at ease and is able to explain things in ways that everyone can understand and achieve. He seems to have a talent for taking on quirky horses and producing them into ridable and happy athletes.

Michael's stable management is second to none, he has an eye for detail and doesn't miss a thing. He is extremely professional and very organised. As a coach he always finds a way to communicate with all individuals and manages to explain things in a way that everyone can understand. Whether he is riding or coaching he always manages to improve the way of going while being sympathetic and understanding.
