"Jo is an amazing horse woman. She's helped me go from someone who has ridden a long time but never had formal lessons until I started with Jo to being confident on my green horse to give everything a go including trail riding, jumping & showing. I can not thank Jo enough & highly recommend her to help you achieve your goals".

Jo got my horse after two failed attempts with two 'recommended' trainers. After only 1 week she was achieving more out of my boy than either two had in 5 weeks! Ice was so happy and calm at her premises and my first ride had me on a high for days! I cannot thank Jo enough for the continued support now that I have him back and my happy rideable boy! Now I just need to keep up the good work he became used to! Lol.

My experience with Jo was wonderful I myself suffer from anxiety and having a big powerful baby with much the same issues as myself her gentle approach in training and taking her time to read and find the right approach for my pony was truly amazing I now have a brave trusting friend for life I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jo to any who is having issues with there horse 🙂both on the ground and in the saddle thanx a million jo

My experience with Joe was great!
Joe has a can-do nature, always ready to meet what ever you ask of her....
I took my beautiful big Clyde Cross to Joe,
I asked her to work with him bit-less...
Joe doesn’t usually work this way, but she was amazing.
Joe said that more people are interested in bit-less bridals & kinder practices theses days!
Joes property is a prefect training facility & she is a great trainer!

Jo is a very talented handler and has achieved some great results with our ponies she has an amazing ability to be able to communicate with excellent results . I would have no hesitation in recommending her handling of any horse or pony that has a problem, nothing is a problem for Jo her results have been amazing.

I am so lucky to have met Jo when I was looking at buying a horse. I bought one of her amazing horses (Balthazar, my stunning forever horse ). She was honest and took time to make sure we were a perfect match. She is also a fantastic teacher who has given Balthazar and me the confidence to try anything from jumping to trail riding and to ride on our own or in a group. I also love that lesson locations can be flexible to suit the lesson. If you are looking for a horse, trainer or a teacher then 100% Jo is the best. Thank you Jo for everything.

We had a older somewhat sensitive, quirky pony to be broken in and started, and on the recommendation of a friend whom also had a horse started we were thrilled with Jo at serendipity equine and the service we got. Great communication, honest progress reports and we felt fully supported in the handover stage. Cannot recommend Jo highly enough and her skills as a horse woman.
