Here is what a few of my clients have to say:
"Having had a few falls from my previous horse and nearly a year out of the saddle my confidence (ridden) had taken a dive. I contacted Vicki as her training and principles resonated with me. She has not only given me tools to improve my riding and rebuild my confidence in the saddle with my new horse Maverick but we're also learning various groundwork techniques. These will certainly come in handy when we enter our first Trec competition this year! Above all we're having lots of fun-isn't that what having horses is about?" Kerry Law and Maverick
“The support I have received is first class. Vicki’s understanding of horses and their owners is a rare gift. She goes beyond what a riding instructor can teach without scaring or overworking her pupils.” Pat Regan
"I started having lessons at a time when my confidence was at an all-time low. Her approach to horsemanship helped me regain that confidence through being able to feel, understand and then manage my horse's energy so we could become a safe and happy partnership." Wendy Wainwright
“Vicki is a fantastic coach. Ideal for nervous riders and those wanting to put the relationship first with their horse. Without Vicki I would not have got the confidence to ride. So a big thank you.” Deborah Evans
"I cannot thank Vicki enough for helping me regain confidence following a nasty fall. Her methods are gentle but so effective. I love that she has so much respect for both horse and rider. I am able to hack out alone with confidence which at one time I thought I would never do again." Fiona Mackay
"After owning and riding horses for 40 years and one horse related accident to many, I developed an irrational fear of mounting and riding. Vicki helped me through this phase in a calm, non-judgemental way. Thank you Vicki you are a true professional and a gifted teacher." Karen Crutchlow and Topaz.
"Vicki has improved my confidence no end and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone. Even if you can’t afford regular lessons it is worth making a start with Vicki. She looks at the whole picture, not just your riding, and the things she teaches stay with you - you even get homework!" Paula King.
"I met Vicki Jayne Maris 17 years ago when she was a young and very competent instructor at a riding school. I was nearing retirement age, and I arrived at the riding school as a hopeful first time rider, very nervous and apprehensive. Vicki Jayne took me in hand and soon opened up a new world for me. She found me the right horse and she worked with me at my pace. She helped me face up to my fears and address them and I progressed through the various stages to being able to hack out on roads and through bridle paths and fields. Whenever I encounter a problem, as we all do when we are out, appropriate words from Vicki Jayne come back into my mind and I am able to get myself and my horse back under control. Vicki Jayne is an inspirational teacher who understands horses and people. She works with skill and compassion for both, encouraging riders to work with their horses gently but firmly. She instructs clearly, succinctly, and stays along side, encouraging and explaining in easily understandable words – she doesn’t get “technical” until the rider fully comprehends the “language”. This was very helpful to me. Vicki Jayne has recently given me a course in Natural Horsemanship which is brilliant. This is a field which Vicki Jayne, as a freelance instructor, is very experienced and has achieved amazing results. I cannot speak too highly about Vicki Jayne and her teaching methods. She is an outstanding, very experienced and professional teacher – and she has a great sense of humour which is a tremendous help when life gets tricky." Betty Simpson
"As a new rider Vicki Jayne has really helped me to gain in confidence and really have fun with Harvey. She never pushes you to do things you don’t want to but gives you courage to try things. After our lessons I come away thinking wow! Harvey has been struggling to work in an outline and have good head carriage but with lots of support from Vicki Jayne he is beginning to work it out! He is learning that it is more fun to have more go than whoa. Thanks a million Vicki Jayne." Louise Hunt
“Your teaching has transformed our riding and our relationship with Blossom and Hugo.” Alex Lockey
"Just a few lines to say how much I enjoyed the workshop yesterday. Your insights were a real eye opener and I've taken on board the things that you said which has provided much focus and clarity. Emerald and I went out for a hack this morning; we had to go alone as had no one to accompany us but we had a lovely time and ended up in the lorry park on the farm for an impromptu bit of training! I hopped off and took a photo to send to you to show where positive intention can get you in 24hrs!! We've still got a way to go as these lorries were parked up so they were quiet and still but it is a first getting so close to something so big. She is stood there all by herself.... Waiting for a treat” Natalie Harvey
