“I was at Quob Stables undertaking my Stage 1 exam and just wanted to pass on my compliments to the Stables. I tragically suffered a terrible accident with my darling horse in June and made the devastating decision to have him put to sleep two weeks ago. From the very first welcome at Quob reception through to the briefing and the exam itself I was made to feel that the environment was just so supportive. I will certainly look to Quob for support in future studies.”
