Thank you so much for helping me with trailer loading my cob Bobby. Without your help we would have never made it to the vets. By breaking the process down for him you made the whole experience less frightening. It was lovely to see the difference in him in the trailer, from wild eyed at the beginning to calm and eating hay at the end. You really do have a very kind but firm way of giving the horse (and owner) confidence.

I can’t thank you enough,

kind regards
