Well I can't believe I have had Marni 6 mths already. He is very happy here and we love him to bits ! He has settled in really well and has made good friends with my other chestnuts.

I have had a great summer with him, doing a bit of everything - beach rides, camp, XC, dressage etc. I have regular flatwork lessons to keep up his training and Elise jumped a lovely clear at Hickstead in the school teams last week. We are planning our Christmas dressage pairs to music - as you can see Marni and Freddie are so alike !

He has been the ultimate schoolmaster - just as you described him. He has not put a foot wrong and is an absolute pleasure to do in every way. He definitely has a home for life here!

Thank you, Max



'If I find myself looking for another horse I will be going straight to Isobel! It was an absolute pleasure to buy a horse from someone so professional, who clearly cares about the horses and the homes they go to. Pimms is a horse of a lifetime, sensitive, brave and fantastically intelligent, I simply could not have asked for more. '

 'Just thought I would let you know. Charlie has been going really well since he came back. We took him jumping this weekend, first time since disaster at Christmas! He and Florrie came third with less than a second between the first three. He really enjoyed it and jumped like his old self. Just did the one class. It was lovely to see them both with their confidence back and trusting each other. Thanks again'

'Hi Isobel, Happy Xmas. Dips won her first hunter trial at Bicton in October in a class of 50 entries. Megan absolutely loves her. Its all down to you and the work you did that she has such a lovely home now and is competing and pony clubbing. She can still have the odd little buck now and then! Thank you so much. '

'We have known Isobel as owners for two years, during which time she has proved to have a very hard working, reliable and straightforward approach to caring for and training different types and temperaments of horses and ponies. We have thoroughly enjoyed being one of Isobel’s owners and she has achieved excellent British Eventing results with one of our ponies. She is a very dedicated and talented rider and her sympathetic and professional approach has certainly paid off. Starting from scratch last year, this year he qualified for two British Eventing Regional Finals and achieved 2nd place event pony in the British Connemara Pony Society performance award scheme 2009. He currently competes at BE100 level and the results speak for themselves.

Kilgobben Rebel

Mirah Kilgobben Rebel – a stunning looking supremely talented fully papered (and attituded) connemara who grew too big to be a pony! My daughter was too poorly to ride him and my son not quite ready for him so I had to find something for him to do for 2006 – in the hopes that my son would be ready for him in 2007. I found Isobel by chance through an appealing advertisement – checked her record and references and without even meeting her had Rebel delivered to her yard in January 2006.

I could not have made a better decision. Isobel has worked extremely hard with Rebel on the flat work which was (and is) his weakest phase, but from January until the end of the season she has persevered and her efforts were rewarded with a magnificent test at 2 star level at Weston Park in October. Isobel has kept in constant touch about Rebel, his health and his progress and I have followed her recommendations on what level he should be doing – and she has always been right; and she has taken it slowly – not wishing to push herself or the horse until she felt it was the right time to notch up a level.

I would not hesitate to send another horse to her for bringing on, re-educating or just competing and I shall hope to seek her guidance and assistance in finding a horse for my son as we have now sold Rebel. I would have no hesitation in recommending Isobel to an owner or prospective purchaser, she has always been completely straightforward with me and it has been a delight (and a rather refreshing change in the equestrian world) to deal with someone like this. I would be more than happy to speak to anyone to confirm everything I have said".
