Jennifer - Sarah is a knowledgeable experienced instructor. She always pays great attention to detail...

...and after assessing you and your horse will help you progress with excellent Equine advice and instruction to help you and your horse achieve a better way of going so creating a greater partnership and enabling you to achieve your goals.

She helped me achieve excellent side saddle results with my horse in 2019. Thoroughly recommend!


Claire - For the last 2 years Sarah has been teaching my children all aspects of horsemanship, from...

...riding to stable management. She adapts the lessons to their individual needs and lets them develop at their own pace. They really enjoy their classes, while I feel confident that Sarah makes their safety her priority.

Sarah has also been invaluable in helping us care for our pony. Rugs, feed and worming have been discussed at length! Her skills and experience have helped develop the bond between child and pony and we are very grateful to her.


Helen - Sarah Holman is a fantastic teacher, very professional but at the same time friendly and...

...personable. The instructions she gives are clear and concise. There is a good balance of constructive feedback and praise. I would definitely recommend Sarah, Thank you Sarah for all your time and effort!


Lucy - I met Sarah whilst I was studying for my BHS EHKC Entry Level through an online training...

...company. I needed a BHS Coach to invigilate my exam.

Sarah was more than I had expected or could have hoped for. She was incredibly supportive, exceptionally knowledgeable and always patient. I decided to do my BHS EHKC Level One through Sarah instead of online. This not only saved me a lot of money but gained me the best teacher I could have ever asked for. I studied at my own pace, around my full time job and other commitments and Sarah was only ever a text or a call away, if I needed her.

I started this journey at 35 years old with next to no knowledge of horse care. But I knew it was something that I really wanted to do. The BHS have so many ways for a complete horse novice to learn and fantastic coaches to work with. It’s never too late to do something that makes you happy. My only regret is that I didn’t start sooner and with Sarah from the very beginning. I don’t know what I will do next but I do know who will be my coach when I do.


Tim - Sarah is a very kind a component equine coach. She strikes the right balance of theoretical...

...knowledge with practical elements which keeps the learning process fun and ensures the student gets an all round knowledge base. Sarah is very engaging in the way she teaches by the use of books, her past experiences and practical demonstrations as well as the occasional quiz to ensure the knowledge is retained. She has also taken me on trips to local tack shops and stables to show me what equipment is available and different techniques such as lunging. All in all Sarah is a five star coach who is happy to teach everyone and pass on her extensive knowledge.


Rhian - I have known Sarah for ten years and started training with her in side-saddle, something...

...which was new to myself and my mare. She is a very knowledgeable and experienced instructor who brings out the best in her pupils. Always happy to help and advise. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah.


Katy - I have been having lessons with Sarah for nearly 3 years now. In that time she has helped...

...so much with my confidence and riding skills. I have 2 slightly quirky Arabs and my ambition has been to be able to compete in ridden showing and dressage. After some time off competing my confidence was not as good as it could have been! Sarah is always perceptive and sensitive to what needs working on. She has helped me to find solutions to ridden problems and to devise schooling plans to work on at home. She even came to the rescue at the last minute to help with schooling issues just before a competition.

I would truly recommend Sarah as riding instructor. She has always found the positives and helped me to work on them, to both improve my riding and to get the best out of and enjoy my horses.
