Katie has been such a pleasure to have as our housesitter. Nothing is an issue at all, with our highly energetic and needy dog, plus the 3 horses there is always a fair bit to do! The house is lovely and tidy when we come home and it's nice to have some updates and pictures of the animals when we are away. Katie has always been easy and timely to communicate with. It's super helpful that she also knows our animals when providing riding lessons as she has been able to handle the slightly needy dog whilst I'm riding 😄 Katie is our absolute go-to house sitter and is highly recommended!
Outstanding service doesn’t even begin to describe Katie’s house sitting! We trusted her for 10 plus days to look after 12 work dogs a tribe of horses and our two very special fur babies Maicey & fox on our farm. Katie goes above and beyond to ensure she does a fabulous job! Finding someone I could fully trust to look after our animals has taken years and since finding Katie we would not use anyone else! Providing a service which included regular photos of Maicey and fox going for walks and outings to tucked up in bed made me feel extremely delighted! I cannot recommend Katie enough to anyone and can promise that holiday you really needed just became so much easier knowing you can trust Katie to go above and beyond to look after your animals & pets!

I had Katie look after my horses while I was away last summer. She did a fantastic job! She is really reliable and sensible in her approach. Because she has horses herself she understands what to check up on every day and is great at communicating if she has any concerns or questions about anything at all. We had a horse that needed particular care and attention every day (that he didn’t always want!) and she managed it like the pro she is. We got regular photos and updates and could see all the horses were as happy as she said they were. The horses were all in great condition when we got home and Katie even collected the mail and fed the cat! She’s happy to go twice a day to cover and feed if that’s your preference, or if the weather turns nasty. It was a comfort to know I didn’t need to be worried about a thing. Katie provides a valuable service at a reasonable rate and she’ll be helping me out again this summer!
"Highly recommend Katie as an instructor for all those looking! I’ve been getting lessons with Katie for almost a year now and both my riding and pony have improved drastically. Katie’s warm welcome made it so easy to feel comfortable and confident in lessons right from the get go and to talk about any issues that I was struggling with. Thanks to Katies help and support I quickly overcame bad habits and started my first season of Show Jumping, even winning our first 1m and producing some lovely rounds throughout the season. One of my favourite things about Katie is that she is fun. When I don’t understand something or it’s just not going how I feel it should be, she can immediately make me look from a new perspective and have a laugh. I generally forget that I’m learning as I enjoy it so much. Not only has Katie improved our SJ abilities but has majorly developed our flatwork which has plays a massive part in our jumping. She not only understands me as a rider but my pony with an incredibly spunky personality as well! Katie has constantly provided me with opportunities and challenges which have provided me to develop skills to reach my full potential. She goes out of her way to help me at all times no matter the situation. I really appreciate everything she has done and continues to do for me. Katie is an amazing coach and friend, I’m so incredibly grateful to have her!!"
"I have found my lessons with Katie great. She has helped me a lot with my confidence and she works on how to fix the problem and not change how the horse naturally goes. Katie has helped me with my new pony and without her I wouldn't be where I am today. I had lessons weekly on a Friday with my twin sister and my lesson was always the highlight of my week! She worked very well with juggling two horses in the arena spreading her time out between the both of us and always made my riding improve every second. Im looking forward to getting back into weekly lessons."
"I have found my lessons with Katie great. She helped me make the leap from small ponies to big ponies. Katie didn't just help me with my jumping, she has helped me get to the fence and gain control. With out her lessons I don't know where I would be!!! I definitely would recommend her lessons."
