Just a quick hi from Freddie Fox. We are having lots of stubble fun. Totally love my boy to bits. Everyone comments on how amazingly sensible he is and can't believe how young he is. Here's a pic of us in the stubble.



She is exactly what I wanted.



Hi Joanne, just thought I'd let you know that all is great with Belle and I, doing lots of dressage, jumping... Was at local show yesterday and got 2nd in riding club horse and reserve champion! So pleased with my girl.

Thanks again!   I have no idea how you manage to conjure up the perfect match...twice!   But I certainly promote your wizardry at every opportunity!

Mum to sisters Rachel and Sarah for whom we recently sourced horses

The pictures are  fantastic.   Couldn’t believe how chilled she looked.   Thanks so much and she really trusts Jane.   I’m so happy with her progress and we are really pleased that we sent her to you as you have given her a great start.

Who sent her 4yo Kannan x Balou du Rouet mare to us to back and ride away

Melody has been fabulous so far...she hasn't put a foot wrong. We took her out at the weekend to Fife Hunt PC's junior ODE and they were placed 3rd.  I've pointed one of Hannah's friends in your direction, so fingers crossed she may find her very own Melody.

Her photos look good don't they, such a change from when she came and can see the progress she has made.   She is now going beautifully and I'm looking forward to having some fun with her and feel much more positive. I am grateful to you and Jane for your help and support.

Just wanted to send you a few pics of Harley at her first XC practice last weekend. She really enjoyed herself! She's coming along nicely, been to snec a few times and out for a few lessons off the yard and has been a good girl. Her flatwork is coming along too although she's much happier once she sees the jumps :)

Just wanted to send you a couple of photos and another update on our journey. Today Ruby had her first ever visit to the beach and, despite her not wanting to dip her toes in the sea (she did a beautiful half pass to avoid it!) I can only describe it as being, yet another, best day (we're having so many I cant tell you). She was just an absolute sweetheart and although I'm already in love with her, I fell a bit more today. She was initially a little wary but quickly settled and we enjoyed a good "blast" along the sands. I'm hoping to start a little jumping with her soon now I've definitely found my mojo!

Hi, A wee update on Rihanna. Ruby was at Howe yesterday with her and got a clear round over 45cm. We are so delighted with Rihanna - great temperament and so honest. They are making a great partnership!

Joanne, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the professional way you went about selling my horse Loriot. My love for my horses, coupled with my high standards of care, I expect a lot from a yard and Avonmill Equestrian ticked everyone of my boxes. Throughout the process I was kept fully informed of his progress, the enquiries received, and his ever consistent performance at shows; indeed I lost count of how many placings and double clears he and Jane attained in such a short period of time. This interspersed with tales of his adventures of hiding buckets, and his ability to undo every safety catch available to man (thank goodness for kick bolts!), I had the wonderful benefit of feeling fully involved, and part of the journey, whilst having none of the worry. Well done for finding him a super home, I am sure his new owners will love him as much as I did.

Just wanted to send you a few pictures of 4yo Prem. Thanks so much for doing an amazing job in backing and riding her away.    She came home so relaxed and happy in her work. Really appreciate it. See you in a few months with the next one!

We would just like to say thank you for helping find the new pony for my daughter. Avonmill Equestrian proved to be extremely professional, helpful and caring in every aspect of our journey in finding the right pony we always wished for. I would sincerely recommend Avonmill to anyone who is looking for their perfect match of horse or pony. Thanks Joanne.

Update - Larry jumps two double clears at his first BS show!

Joxer is very well and getting on grand.   I can’t put into words how delighted we are with him.  He is perfect.   I promise we shall keep in touch and update you on our adventures.



Would just like to say another amazing 'Thank you' to Avonmill Equestrian for helping us find my daughters amazing new pony. Today was my daughters first BSJA competition with her new pony they came 2nd out of a large class, they were leading all they way until the last competitor went in and won by a split second. Would always recommend Avonmill Equestrian in finding the perfect match.
