I have found the Starting Under Saddle Online Clinic to be great. Neil is straight forward and easy to understand and it has provided great framework for my training. I’m being guided at my own pace and my horse is responding so positively. I have also needed to ask the odd question to clarify my understanding and Neil has always answered within a day. I have watched the videos over and over and learn something every time.

I previously studied “natural horsemanship” methods for years and found some things just didn’t work. I ended up feeling quite demoralised and with a very confused horse! Neil is good at debunking approaches that don’t work and telling you WHY they don’t. This has really helped my relationship with my horse immensely – it’s clearer, more direct and more satisfying for both of us, under Neil’s training methods. I highly recommend his training courses.
