WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I own a riding school that is committed to the welfare of our horses and we strive to provide ethical riding lessons that the horses will enjoy as much as the riders. Alize visited us to help me with non coercive training methods for ridden work. It is important to me that we work in partnership with our horses as much as possible, as after all, we have chosen this job but they haven't! Alize is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge as much as possible, she is thorough and keen to help. She has a friendly and non judgemental manner and I learned a lot from training with her. We worked with horses both at liberty and ridden and Alize showed me many useful techniques that will help us maximise the welfare of our working horses. ”
