We first met Katie in about October 2013 when we were looking for a trainer for our Australian Pony. We had bred this pony and she was very special to us. My daughters had started her under saddle at home but we did not have the skills or knowledge to educate a green pony. Luie had never been off our property so we were not sure how she would react to the experience.
Sending Luie to Katie’s was an overwhelming adjustment for her, but Katie very quickly gained her trust. During the six weeks, Katie had transformed our Luie into an obedient, trusting and stunning looking pony who is eager to please, very willing to work and confident to go out on her own and try new things. Katie had her moving beautifully over the walk, trot and canter and responding well to aids.
Every day we received text messages, photos and video clips of her progress and Katie always had time to answer our questions or chat. We were extremely pleased with the love, care and pampering that Luie was given while she was away!
Since we brought Luie back home, Katie has followed up with her progress and provided advice, lessons and ongoing support. We are so pleased with the attitude our pony has, her manners, and that she is always trying her best for us at home or in the ring/arena.
We are looking forward to a promising 2014 for Luie and we are eternally thankful to Katie and her team for getting us off to a very good start. We will definitely be looking forward to ongoing lessons with Katie to ensure Luie reaches her full potential.
