“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
Albert is doing really really well, I can’t believe he is the same horse. I am so pleased with him.
We have been practicing polocrosse most days, both in the sand arena and on grass, with some hacking out and fitness work in between.
He seems to be getting better and better every time, been doing some practice with other horses as well at home, just waiting for the polocrosse practices to start!!
He is responding well to my commands, spinning and stopping, and i can wind him up and do 5 minutes of hard work and then stand him still and relax, without any rearing!!
We are both now looking forward to the season starting!!
Thank you very much for all your time and effort you put in to him while he was at your yard, it was definitely worth the long journey!Zara Hunt
Thank you so much for the amazing transformation in Lindt. We were really losing hope before coming. Lindt has progressed in leaps and bounds and Jason has done an amazing job all around with his training. We are very excited about his future – watch this space, Lindt will be taking the dressage world by storm very soon! I’m taking him to my trainer, Erik Theilgaard, on 13th March and then he’ll go out and do a couple of novice tests in the training section.
Thank you to Sarah and all the staff for their hospitality and warm, friendly atmosphere. I will be recommending you to everyone.Katie Jaye-Lipton and Lindt
Just a quick update on Zorro…. Well really the attached picture says it all
Thank you so VERY MUCH again :-).Bryony
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your hard work sorting Willow out. He has returned a well mannered, all round nice person both on the ground and under saddle. The stock saddle is a great confidence giver and one of my best purchases (not including Willow!) and I would recommend them to anyone as you just feel so safe in them. Willow and I are looking forward to many happy years together thanks to Jason’s training, so we wish you all the best for the future.”Kim Weatherly
“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
Hi Jason, Just let you know that Bertie travelled home really well. After he had settled in I did as you advised took him up into the school and just got on with it – he was brilliant! I rode him again this morning and took him round our fields and had a canter and once again he did not put a foot wrong. Thank you so much for starting Bertie for me I know that you have given him the best start and hopefully I can continue where you left off. I will keep in touch and will probably bring him back to you early next year after he has had a break just for you to set him up for his professional career! Once again thank you.
“To Everyone at Risebridge, especially Dan (assistant horse trainer) – Thank you so much, you have done a fantastic job with Treade”Annabel and Jodie
I had been having a few small attitude problems on the ground with Dancer and decided at 3 1/2 years old and already about 16.2hh he may ask a few too many questions of me if I tried to back him myself.
Jason was recommended and Dancer was booked in. A few weeks later and Dancer is home, his whole attitude is wonderful and results with his ridden work is amazing. I am looking forward to competing him next year in dressage and hope to make the transition to affiliated dressage soon.
Jason comes highly recommended!Debbie
Many Thanks Jason, Sarah & all those who worked so hard to give us such a brilliant day yesterday on the Balanced Partnership Level 1 Groundwork Course. It was so helpful & informative, with so many tips & remedies both Bob and I sure slept well! Bob even popped his nose straight into his headcollar this morning when offered. We sure both have a lot to work on! We had such a super group to work in hope to see you all again. Looking forward to some Liberty work if you’ll take us and the Horse massage as Crystal needs a bit of TLC at the moment. The Lasagne was excellent Penny!Jane Tyson
Spartan was started by Jason 18 months ago when he was about to turn four years old. I had bought him as a yearling from a friend and we had both been taken by surprise when he just kept growing and growing. In spite of being by a 15.1hh stallion and out of a 16hh mare, he was 16.3hh by the time he was three. I did a lot of ground work with him and started lunging him, all set to back him myself but soon decided that he was simply too much horse for a 5’3” forty something to deal with. After a bit of research, I took myself off to one of Jason’s coffee mornings and was bowled over by his sensible and sensitive approach. Spartan was packed off to Risebridge and I became a regular visitor for a number of weeks. Sarah and her team always made me feel welcome and I was amazed by my horse’s progress. Jason was always honest and didn’t hide the fact that Spartan was not the easiest horse to start. I was encouraged to ride a number of times and in a variety of situations before he was happy to let me take him home. I then spent a few happy months riding Spartan with the loose contact that Jason had advocated before I felt that he was now ready to step up his training a gear and put him out to loan to a lovely home where he leads a more exciting life and is taken out and about. He has now hit 17.2hh and I am hoping that my daughter will grow tall enough to justify having this sweet giant back one day! Thank you Jason and team for giving my horse such a great start in life.
