“Having filmed Jason’s work for www.horsehero.com, I was astounded by his original methods of dealing with all manner of behavioural problems, some severe. Jason has great empathy and patience with all the horses (and owners) he works with and is remarkably effective. A truly great horseman, who has developed quite a fan-club on Horse Hero!”Fiona Price, Founder
I have to say a huge Thankyou to Sarah, Jason, Tom and the rest of the team for looking after Luna! She is like a different horse and they tried their best to change her in the short space of time they had. From a nervous horse from a lovely mare! Sherry Hakki
I can tell you that Jason and his team have made a huge differnece to my little Sooty’s outlook on life, he is now chilling in his stable and not keeping an eye on everything around him! Thank you!Sarah Baldwin
Just to let you know that the colts are going really well. I was so impressed with Jason’s ability to start these horses – they came back ready to work and we have high hopes for their futures. I hope that these are the first of many young horses that I get back from Jason’s yard!David Rumsey, Dressage Rider and Trainer
“Jason and his team run an effective and well run yard. Jason is excellent at handling all types of horses and has a range of experience and skills that transfer across all disciplines, which is great for clients and their horses”Tony Warr BVMS BSc MRCVS and 4* Eventer
Jason, family and staff, Just to thank you for such an excellent day today. You have for sure inspired us, with our two youngsters A two year old and three year old and we also learnt so much else for the future. You made it look so easy although I know only too well it is not, it does take years of hard work dedication and practice. Shame about the lack of drama’s, you must just do your job too well ;) well done to you.
In one way hopefully we won’t need to use your facilitates but in another way it would be just fantastic, so watch this space, we know where to find you.
Thanks so much again and wishing you all the success for the future.
Kindest regardsClive and Jacqui Tilley
Hello Sarah and Jason
Just to give you an update on Jos, who came to your yard for help with ground handling and bucking etc etc. He is doing really well and as Jason predicted he has had further issues which Mr Bluey has sorted.
Jos seems at the moment to trust in one person, he walks in behind me and has shown signs of respect and trust. I am hoping this year to build his confidence and to put him in gradual situations he doesn’t like, but overall he has not forgotten what he learnt from his stay with you.
I think it was Jason that said it takes 18mths to undo any past history and I can say having had Jos some 18mths now ,with patience and what Jason has taught me ,this is definitely the case.
Jos today, I feel will turn out to be a great family horse for life, with perseverance and building blocks he will be like our old boy, a great and trusty part of our family. It just shows owners, with the right help and patience you can always have a good horse. For me yet again it was money well spent. Thank you and Jason and all those who took on a no hoper and turned him into the boy his today, I can’t wait to build on the foundations Jason put in place, many years of happy riding i see ahead.
With many thanks to you all
Angie Thirkell, The girls
and horses Twister and Jos!
“I attended the “Meeting of Minds” demonstration held at Hadlow College and thought it was one of the best demonstrations that I have ever seen, thank you very much.”Sue Freeman - Stilebridge Kennels and Livery Yard
It is now a year since Jason worked his magic on Sooty and I can honestly say that Sooty in now 99% not nervous anymore. He is now a ‘normal’ horse, yippee! Friends can handle him and he doesn’t back away when I walk towards him with a brush anymore, I have given him a trace clip with my big clippers and even clipped half his face, I never thought I would ever get near him with clippers. This is all down to Jason teaching Sooty how to react to situations and the best way to cope with his own decisions. As a nervous rider this combination could have been a recipe for disaster but I have stuck to Jasons instructions to the letter and it has really paid off. We now confidently hack in Bedgebury forest with friends and Sooty has just started jumping with a friend of mine. I hope to have him out to his first dressage shows with me ridig him in the new year. 2013 will be an exciting year for Sooty. Thanks Jason, and all your staff as I know they all helped make Sooty a more confident pony, I can’t thank you enough. Sarah Baldwin
Just to let you know Tabe has been fantastic, I’m hacking him out in company and you’d think he was 10 not 3, he’s such a cool horse. I’ve taken him in the lorry to an indoor school for a trial run, again he was fab, no problems at all. I can’t think why I was ever worried about him being a stallion. I don’t know if you do free schooling (liberty) work, I do with mine and Tabe is really good at it now very tuned in and obedient to changes of gate and direction and back up and approach.Michelle Richardson
Robbie was a rescue horse who took ages to enjoy life again. After an accident last year, I couldn’t ride for a long time plus I lost my confidence. I did alot of ground work and he came out of his shell but I couldn’t bring myself to get back in the saddle. His three weeks training got him back into ridden work and at the end of it I took the plunge (in at the deep end!) and did the show day training and enjoyed ever bit of it, although it done me in after not riding for over a year. Me and Robbie are now enjoying our riding and even some jumping. Not much of a problem horse story but in the end it was me that needed more help than Robbie! Heather Mollins
