Testimonials

“Megan is an excellent horsewoman and trainer, she has always shown immense patience and insight working with my own horses and my foster horses through ERR. If you have a young horse to start or a horse with ridden issues then please consider Megan, she will only ever be a positive experience for them and give them a solid foundation to move forwards from. Keep up the great work Megan!”

“In only 3 short hours Megan has totally transformed my daughters struggling relationship with her pony.
They are both very mareish and immature perhaps but both lily and star are now really enjoying schooling and their bond is well and truly building ❤️
To see the joy in my daughters face again is priceless”

“I’m in my fifties, I decided after all these years to do something I always wanted to do, to learn to ride a horse. I was introduced to Megan as my instructor. From the first day she brimmed with confidence, her riding experience and knowledge of horses shining through in her teaching methods. Thank you for your patience, your perseverance and for your lovely teaching manner and respect you gave me as someone who’d never ridden before. It was a pleasure I’ll never forget and a great memory in having you as my instructor and in helping me understand and appreciating these beautiful animals. Your the best! Paul X. 5/5”

“I’ve known Megan for two years and have had the pleasure of working alongside her riding and retraining a variety of horses, including youngsters and those with different issues. Both on the ground and in the saddle, Megan has a quiet, patient manner that horses really respond to and she is a very competent and effective rider whether schooling, hacking or jumping competitively. Megan has also given my children (ages six and eight) their first riding lessons and they loved her approach which is friendly and fun. They made great progress in a short space of time and were very enthusiastic about their coach! Megan is exceptionally reliable and trustworthy and I have no hesitation in highly recommending her, whether as a coach or a rider.”

Such a positive experience with Megan. She gave my daughter confidence and lots of very valuable advice. Megan has a great approach and her Sunny personality made it a joy to watch as she instructed rider and horse. She’s not a clock watcher and it was fabulous value for money. I’d definitively recommend and we will absolutely be booking Megan again soon. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Megan has been schooling Zak and recently continued to do so whilst I was on holiday. Zak was a lot calmer and happier this year compared to last. I know this was down to Megan, she has so much patience and a gentle way with horses. I would highly recommend her and am looking forward to my next holiday without the stress of worrying about my boy. Thanks again Megan.”

“With my horse Jett being out of ridden work for over a year and me feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to start, Megan came to my rescue! Her calm and confident approach rubbed off on Jett as after a short ground work session she was able to sit on and ride him in our very 1st session, in order to assess his pain levels and if he was ready to be started again and also to assess his reactions to a bitless bridle . She is so patient and encouraging and even helped me overcome confidence issues to have a sit on in our 2nd session. Although its still early days I now have hope for the future and can’t thank Megan enough!”

“I have an anxious highland pony and we were both lacking confidence. I was losing hope I’d ever enjoy her when Megan came along and saved the day. She has given us a real boost and allowed us to enjoy our partnership exploring where we were unable to venture alone before. Megan has a lovely calm manner, and is very patient. I’m also glad she sees the funny side of my very stubborn pony!”

Rachel Anderson 

 

“Highly recommend Megan for schooling and lessons. She has been schooling Bruce and getting great results.”

Silvana Persichini

 

“Just want to say thank you to Megan for coming out and helping me understand the importance of ground work and bonding with my horse. I never thought he could be bored of his routine or that I wasn’t spending enough time with him. Horses need variety too! Remember to spend time just brushing and taking time to work on the ground as well as schooling them

“Megan has been working with my boy Herbie for a few months now, he has gained so much experience and is able to deal with his fears and anxiety head on!
Megan has given him the tools and confidence to handle himself and helped me get back in the saddle because of this, I seen a massive difference in Herbie and can’t thank her enough for her time ❤️
Highly recommend Megan Simpson Equestrian, she takes time to get to know your special furry baby. She treats them with the utmost respect and tunes into their feelings/emotions which makes her a top notch teacher”
