Our horses are trail riding horses and it is all about kicking back, relaxing and watching the view. These are not fast paced horse rides, Coaching from Kiley on request (subject to availability).
Kiley started riding her own horse regularly very young, jumping, pony club, eventing & trail. Right from the beginning she had a natural ability to connect with horses, as also observed from her teachers.
Caring for a herd of horses at Sandy Bay Kiley discovered massive advantages within her training journey, "The horses are living as a herd, I am always working on improving communication through in-hand training, and ridden work, developing correct learned responses and connections through lightness. She has spent many years working with horses at sandy bay offering glamping, farmstays and equine experiences.
Naomi Lovell has a wealth of knowledge in horses, both as an expert rider and trainer. She has had a long career in the horse industry.
