Recommendation from GP rider Keith Robertson ( Elite Performance Dressage)

“Following on from countless recommendations over the years, I contacted Ryan in 2017, when I found myself very short on time due to my other training and competing commitments. I was part way through backing a very talented, but very sensitive, youngster and simply couldn’t give him the extra attention he required at the time. […]

They obviously took the trouble to treat her as an individual to keep her happy in her work and what is more she came home […]
