What our customers have said

"I can highly recommend Lynn Perry, based in Wetherden, who has helped my 16 year old daughter with schooling and generally managing her 16.1 hh dutch warmblood named River. After encountering some problems with him at home and sending him to a natural horsemanship yard for 10 months, we put him on schooling livery with Lynn when he came back. Lynn allowed us to continue using some of the basic principles we had been taught and helped us to continue his education as he did not like being left alone or leaving other horses initially.. Lynn accommodated his needs perfectly, understanding and pre empting any anxieties he may have had with a very calm and thoughtful approach. Lynn taught Jessica to keep calm, and was very patient with Jess when she was having a teenage "bad day", or losing confidence in herself. Lynn encouraged Jess not to give up when something did not quite go the way she wanted, and Jess enjoyed Lynns teaching style. Jess had previously attended some of the pilates courses Lynn holds, which she found very beneficial and useful to put in practice when riding. She also found the wearing of an ear piece (Lynn uses this instead of having to shout at you) and receiving instruction through the ear piece whilst riding very helpful, as it meant you can always hear what Lynn is teaching you wherever you are in the arena. Lynn accommodated us by taking over his entire care and schooling him when we were away on holidays, or unable to get to the yard. We always returned to find a very happy relaxed horse. The yard itself is very peaceful and friendly, all the staff were helpful and i can highly recommend both Lynn and her facilities"

I sent my kind but inexperienced Irish mare to Lynn for some schooling to help us progress with our dressage. Because I have a disability it is important that she should respond to light aids rather than strength, so Lynn’s approach was appealing. I was very pleased with the training my mare received at Lynn’s yard. Not only was there a noticeable improvement in her way of going in a short time, but I found the yard professional, knowledgeable and welcoming and she was clearly happy and settled there. I also benefited from having lessons with Lynn during the schooling period which gave me useful pointers on how to work more in harmony with my mare. Grateful thanks to Lynn and her team, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!

I chose First Choice Dressage to back and bring on my four year old mare, and I am grateful everyday that I made that choice. My little horse was looked after as though she was their own, I was made so welcome that Lynn, her parents, staff and other clients are now also my friends! My horse came on quickly, under no stress or pressure and I now have a horse who is a pleasure to handle and ride. Everything was done to suit Grace and at her speed, with no fuss and no pressure. She has developed into a well mannered and happy horse, with no bad experiences to tarnish her trust in people. I had originally intended on remaining at First Choice Dressage as a livery after her backing, so that I could take advantage of the lessons Lynn gives, however personal circumstances forced a move to another county. Grace stayed with Lynn for over a month until she was ready to move here and I had no worries or anxieties about doing so. My only downside is that I couldn't pick up the yard and everyone in it and move them all with us. Thank you to you all for everything you have done for Grace and I
