"Thank you so much for attending our Summer Fayre this year. The children absolutely loved the pony rides. You helped make our fayre a brilliant day. We hope to see you at further events."

"Emily has been coming to Quob Stables since April and it is the best thing we ever did, she has suffered extreme bullying and lost her free loaned pony she cared for for a year so she was a mess. I cannot thank you all enough for all the support and kindness she has been shown, her riding is really coming along and Roland her instructor has been amazing, he always looks out for her and I am so fond about him only because he has made my daughters weekends so much nicer and she really looks forward to coming on Saturdays. Anyone who has done so wonderful by my daughter is thought of in a very special way. Beth should feel so proud of all her staff and Quob gets our vote every time!"

"I was at Quob Stables today undertaking my Stage 1 exam and just wanted to pass on my compliments to the stables…..The BHS aren’t aware but I tragically suffered a terrible accident with my darling horse in June and having spent six months nursing him, his vets and therapists supported me in making the devastating decision to have him put to sleep two weeks ago. He was my absolute world and the decision has broken me. I was desperately worried about today as haven’t been able to return to his yard without feeling distraught but 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. Whether I have been successful or not today, I will certainly look to Quob for support in future studies. Thank you so much as it means so much."
"Just want to say a huge thank you... Lilly is one of the most friendly, patient and understanding mentors I’ve ridden with. I look forward every week to my lesson with her on a Tuesday night and my private lessons have really increased my confidence....she is amazing!"
"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the (Pony Club) showjumping competition that the children were able to take part in... I'm pretty sure it is something that Grace will remember forever - her photos and rosette have pride of place in her bedroom. A special thank you to Dan who always makes her feel confident and enthusiastic when she rides."
"Thank you so much for this major tick on the bucket list of my life.....the first time I rode together with my son in our shared private lesson this evening Thank you so much Kim, Quob stables, and of course the mighty Star and Clyde for this awesome opportunity; the first of many! My five-year-old has a better seat at the canter than his mum, I need to practice......"
"I just wanted to say thank you to Gemma for my daughter's lesson this morning . She doesn't ride regularly so her fitness isn't great, and she needs pushing, and today she came home enthusiastic, tired but feeling like she's made progress and learnt new things."
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful pony party you put on for Freya. She had a fantastic time and all of the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The guys helping and running the party with the children were great and full of energy, jeering the children on. It really helped to make the party. Once again thank you."
"I've just received my results for the Stage 3 exam I took at Quob a couple of weeks ago and I'm very happy to report that I've passed the care, lunge and dressage part of the riding (I knew I'd failed the jumping on the day), and had some great comments from the examiner! Please could you pass on my special thanks to 'Princess' Michelle (I'll never forget the lunge practice I had with her wearing her birthday tiara!), Briony and Gemma for all helping me along the way!"
"Just a little message to say thank you to Dan particularly but also Michelle! I’ve increased the amount of lessons I have a week at Quob the last few months and my riding confidence has increased massively! Michelle and Dan give you the confidence to push yourself and wouldn’t have got this far without either of them!!"
"I came to you on several occasions over the last year or so to prepare for my Stage 3 riding exam. Besides being very impressed in general with the facilities and staff at Quob, I have to say what a gem of an instructor you have in Jackie. As well as her enthusiastic and sympathetic approach (to both rider and horse!), she was instrumental in ironing out some of my bad habits and “filling my toolbox” to take me on to the next level. And it wasn’t just a job to her, she was absolutely committed and really cared about me getting it right. She played a huge part in me passing my stage 3 riding exam, but has also equipped me with tips, knowledge and an awareness that go beyond the piece of paper saying “Stage 3 pass”. I would love her to know how much she is appreciated!"
