Kimberley is a top-class trainer brimming with passion, knowledge, skill and talent.  I am so grateful to have encountered her, initially as one of the few certified to instruct with Franklin Balls, the improvements to my own position were in a short space at time and still so much to work on with myself and my young green pony.  I’m loving our lessons with Kimberley, they are delivered with a professional but personable approach and her own CPD is evident with the training and competing she undertakes herself.   I’m looking forward to attending some of the clinics at Kimberley’s yard now that I have transport too. Thank you so much

Every lesson or clinic I have had with Kim has always been different with regards to content but each session leaves a feeling of achievement and sense of improvement. The most obvious thing about a lesson is I have fun. This doesn’t mean that it was easy or that I looked like a professional but I was thinking and riding with confidence. Kim is the first instructor I have had to actually teach me how it feels to be in the correct position. Instead of just telling you what you should be doing, she actually helps to get you there and you really notice a difference (the horse probably does too)! I always leave a lesson or clinic with a smile and a confidence in my ability to ride thanks to Kim.
