Participant Feedback

"I'm so excited to be part of the 12 month mentoring program at Student of the Horse. It is a such a fantastic opportunity to be advised, supported and guided on my journey, as a coach within the equine industry, in addition to developing as a trainer.

For me it is so important to have the 'right' support, as we all know the horse industry is vast and abundant with many sorts of training methods on offer and different hoops to jump through! 

Why I love being part of Student of the Horse is not only for endless amounts of knowledge and wisdom I am able to learn and be part of, but also the freedom to express and create my own individual flare.  Student of the the Horse is a collaboration of horses, people and ideas based on a shared awareness and understanding of the horse. 

I believe that riding is an Art, which appears to be somewhat lost in today's time. However, Student of the Horse recognises and encourages the importance of creativity in their approach to horses. 

Turning my passion in to something bigger is a great feeling and where 'no man's an island' I couldn't imagine doing it alone; to have Arran and Mark's coaching and support is fantastic. 

My personal journey with horses has taken me all over the world and I've dipped my toes in many ponds, I knew instantly when I had lessons with Arran I had found something special, he is a true guide and an incredible inspiration. His coaching style supports my continuing development and self confidence as a horse trainer."
