Friendly Team, Honest hard working yard; does what it says on the tin and a whole lot more! Looked after and helped sell our mare. Great yard, comes highly recommended. Mrs C. Beer & Attory Milly
My lovely but quirky 6 yr old mare went to LKF for schooling as her "last" chance before being retired due to behavioural issues. Ali & her team slowly brought her round and after 8 weeks I was able to start riding her. We are going from strength to strength and I decided to keep her full time at LKF where she is being schooled regularly by Ali. She recently won her first dressage competition and I hope to start jumping her in the New Year with Ali's help. The LKF team have also been very supportive and helped with my confidence issues. The combination of great facilities and on site shows, make it a great place to send your horse. Mrs Sophie Keeney & Breda
Our big 17.3hh has been with Ali and her team for just over a year, when he arrived he had some issues the main one being he did not like to be mounted and could bronc. In the time he has been with Ali she has got him so he can be mounted from a leg up and not a bronc since he has been there. He also goes out show jumping and doing a little bit of Dressage something we thought he would never do. The team at Lime Kiln are always friendly and helpful and Ali has always got time for us even when we just turn up. The horses are treated like one of the family. I would highly recommend Ali and her team to anyone. Mr & Mrs P Lawrence & Jancol Mendi
We bought our first horse from Lime Kiln Farm and found that the whole team at the yard were amazing. Our horse was exactly as we had been told and is now a very precious member of our family. Nothing is too much trouble for them and straight away you feel at ease and can see that every horse is cared for as if it were their own. I cannot recommend Ali and her team highly enough. Mrs J Stock & Solar Law.
I sent my pony to Lime Kiln Farm to be backed, Ali and her team did a fab job and my pony is now out on loan having a fun life.
I would highly recommend LKF; Ali is a very good, kind rider and she kept me updated with Polly's progress.
I will be sending my youngster to Ali next year, as she did such a great job. I just wish I lived closer as I would attend the clinics/shows and would have lessons. Great facilities. Kate Plumridge & Polly.
I sent two horses to Ali to be broken, both came back with better manners and going nicely. She gave them both a very good start and as i was close enough, I was able to watch their improvement each week. Being a competition yard, I was also able watch them enter competitions; my daughter's mare did her first basic dressage test after being there four weeks. I would highly recommend her and would also use her services again. Mrs J Long, Herbie & Ella
I sent my mare to LKFEC in Jan 2013 for schooling/selling livery, she hadn't been ridden for over 8 years and Ali did a super job with her, she brought her on slowly which is just what she needed as she is a very sensitive mare and too much too quick would have ruined her. She sold in April and I have to say Ali was fantastic with people viewing her, she spent time with them and it was never too much trouble. She was a bad loader and they had her running up the ramp by the time she went to her new home.. All in all excellent service, fantastic facilities and I would highly recommend. Thanks to Ali, Claire and all LKFEC staff.
