“Sophie has a fantastic natural rapport with young people, enabling them to feel relaxed and supported. Her approach to working with them, has the perfect balance of encouragement and support to enable independent working, to enable the young person to gain confidence to work autonomously and build belief in their own abilities.
"Sophie's natural ability as a horsewoman is self evident in the behaviour of her horses. Her in depth understanding of horse behaviour and the training off her horses means she’s able to facilitate young people working with horses in a safe, protected manner with only minimal staff interference. I can’t recommend her highly enough."

Izi has Spastic Cerebral Palsy.
“Thank you so much for all the effort and kindness you have put into Izi, we talk about Biscuit everyday, and even have a song about him!
“It was wonderful to see Izi progress from being held on Biscuit by Sophie sitting astride him, to Izi sitting independently with minimal physical support in his special saddle, with his hands spontaneously clasping the handle and his legs relaxing around Biscuit.
“He is definitely willing to roll much more and engage in spontaneous hand movements after his sessions."

Chris Evangelou is a Professional Boxer and Actor.
“Sophie delivered an excellent programme which was individually tailored to my needs and was delivered in a professional, competent manner.
“Riding was great exercise for my core strength, stability and balance, whilst being a good mental workout too.
“I am really pleased we asked Sophie to organise AJ’s 3-hour Space and Unicorn party for 25 children.
It was lovely to see the children fully involved in the art, science and unicorn activities they devised - the HR team were great with the children and made learning interactive and fun!”
