Emma Butler - Pretoria, South Africa

When I moved to Cape Town in January 2011 I suddenly realized that I did not know quite as much as I thought I did. Philippa began training me through my college and I learned more from a single lesson with her, than I had from 7 years of previous training! Philippa has helped me so much with my seat, position, confidence, understanding of technique and methods, and my over-all understanding of the equestrian industry. I was fortunate to job shadow her for 4 days and could not have asked for a better teacher. She truly is an extraordinary instructor and person, willing to go out of her way to help where help is needed. Thanks so much for all that you have done for me and taught me - Best instructor in the world!

I contacted Philippa to help me with my young mare's schooling. Vari was hot and full of tension and I had lost my confidence. After only a few sessions the results have been more than incredible. Today I was simlply blown away by the difference in my mare. She  is soft and round and paying attention and I am happy to ask more of her without worrying about her reaction. Philippa has a very gentle and consistent approach giving the horse lots of praise and encouragement. She put together a fantastic training and nutrition program to suit my time commitments and our level.  She also takes the time to make sure Vari is properly cooled off, washed down and stretched. I highly recommend Philippa no matter what your equestrian goals may be! Lara Pieret and Suvari Royale.

Donata, KZN

Posted: 9. June 2010

"My name is Donata Cronjé and I ride a 5 year old Warmblood mare. 

We started this year competing in Novice level.

I was first introduced to Phillipa beginning of last year when she had a 3 day Clinic in KZN. 

I had only 1 lesson with her as it was impossible for me to have anymore at that stage.

I enjoyed her lesson and when I heard she was coming to KZN again I jumped in line to have 4 lessons in a row.

She has a wonderful teaching methodology, she explains clearly and in a way that anyone can understand.  She stayed for the show that weekend and I must say she was a tonic to me, as I get extremely tense at shows.  She was calm and relaxed which had a ripple affect. She was extremely helpful before my tests in the warmup arena as well as in between my classes.

Phillipa manages to motivate and encourage her learners to ride to their best ability and the product is a rider that has a clear idea of how to get the best out of their horse without any miscommunication and frustration between horse and rider. 

I thoroughly enjoyed every one of my lessons and am looking forward to the next Clinic here in KZN "
