Our Customers Say
Ellie is a fabulous instructor with incredible knowledge of young horses. Her yard is a 5 star training facility where each horse is given individual and structured care to suit them. Our 6 year old is currently going through rehab and the cleanliness, care from the grooms and excellent facilities provided by The Townends allows her to recover in a totally safe and professional environment. We cannot recommend Ellie highly enough.
Ellie quickly summed up issues both horse and rider needed to work on. Used effective exercises to improve the way of going.
Ellie is helping school me and my young pony. She is very knowledgeable, a super teacher, patient and encouraging. Definitely recommend.
Ellie has always been kind, professional and very supportive. Over the past 18 months Ellie’s help has been invaluable to helping us achieve what we want. The care and attention she gives all the horses are second to none. Everything is organised and all the horses are in a proper routine. Ellie’s encouraging approach to teaching always ensures the best out of any lesson. Ellie provides all the help you need for sales livery, from the start to the end making sure all is in hand and the best possible next home found for your horse. Ellie’s wonderful approach to helping my daughter in every way has been outstanding and we can’t thank her enough.
I bought my first horse from Ellie and cannot recommend her enough. The whole process of buying was so easy and genuine - they helped us through the whole process. The trial facilities were also amazing. I was rather nervous trying horses but Ellie gave me a lesson that filled me with confidence and I knew Mac was the one. They still help support me now I have had Mac for almost three years. If you are thinking of buying a horse from Ellie then definitely do it.
Me and my daughter both started having lessons with Ellie in the Summer of 2021 and have learnt so much and really enjoyed every lesson. Ellie is extremely patient, kind and encouraging and always seems to know the just right challenge for both of us to come away feeling really positive. This has been so important for my daughter who can struggle with confidence. Ellie has also helped school my daughters young pony which has been so beneficial for his learning and development. We would both absolutely recommend Ellie to any rider and horse at any levels.
