“I travel a lot and it gives me great peace of mind knowing that the team at Greenhill always take excellent care of my horse while I’m away. They are very good at dealing with a horse’s individual requirements which was particularly important with my previous horse who had navicular syndrome.”

“Greenhill Equitation is a lovely small friendly yard with fantastic indoor and outdoor facilities with direct access to amazing parkland rides. My daughter Meg has been riding here for the past 11 years the last 3 with her own horse. She has been given excellent riding tuition from very well trained staff, which has helped her confidence grow over the the years. We’ve been given lots of advice over the years from lovely friendly staff who are always on hand to help when ever needed. I would definitely recommend this lovely yard to fellow horse owners.”

“I have had a number of horses at Greenhill Equitation for over 15 years. I have had nothing but an amazingly professional service from Nathalie and her team, and my horses have had nothing but incredible care over the past decade and a half. My horses have all been happy, so well looked after and when I had to make the incredibly hard decision to have my devoted old horse put to sleep, they were all so compassionate, caring and incredibly supportive to me. I never need worry about my horses whenever I am away as they treat them as if they were their own and that is so reassuring for any horse owner. I would keep my horses at Greenhill Equitation any day of the week. A first class 5* livery yard in beautiful surroundings.”

“My horses have been with Nathalie for over 10 years and throughout this time I have valued the friendly, experienced and personal level of care they have received, particularly in times of need where I have been continually impressed with the efforts made to ensure my horses are well and happy. Greenhill is a warm and sociable yard with access to fabulous countryside and Nathalie is an excellent teacher who has provided much good advice over the years. I would highly recommend it.”

“My homebred youngster, Freddie, used to go by the nickname Steady Freddie but no more! Rising 5, he’s morphed into a sharp cissy (not entirely his fault). Sadly, I couldn’t spend the proper amount of time with him over the last 18 months due to a family bereavement & the subsequent meltdown of my parents.

I made the decision to look for a professional to save us (no mean feat in Cornwall) & found Nathalie on the net, best thing I ever did! She’s a consummate professional, extremely hard working but also empathetic, an unusual combination these days. Suffice to say I have a huge regard for her as I think she’s just saved my life & she’s got great piglets too!!

Freddie is coming home at the end of the week, I shall now crack on with him myself & try not to undo all Nathalie’s good work. I know that I’ll always have ongoing support from her which is priceless.”

“I arrived at Greenhill eight years ago and cried with relief! Having had a bad experience at my previous yard I got to Greenhill and was met by one of the girls who immediately took charge and showed me to my stable, the sight of a huge clean fluffy bed and big haynet was too much! I was a new owner having come back to riding after 25 years and needed and lot of backup and help to get over my nerves, all of which was offered with patience and kindness. We have gone from strength to strength and with the help of Nathalie’s lessons we now compete on a regular basis in all three disciplines. There is always a clean, shiny horse ready for me on competition mornings with our head girl on hand to make sure I leave on time. I have all year round turnout and in the summer he goes out for the night and comes in for the day which suits us perfectly. The facilities are second to none and I always have somewhere to ride be it indoors, the outdoor arena, jumping field or hacking in Cirencester Park with the other owners. The support and knowledge of the team is given without question and any medical problems dealt with efficiently and quickly. I recently came back from a ODE with a slightly lame boy but we couldn’t see any obvious causes. The farrier was called and it turned out to be pus in the foot so within a day the problem was dealt with. I leave Greenhill every day safe in the knowledge that my very precious boy is safe, happy, and well looked after - you can’t buy that peace of mind.”

“I’ve kept a horse at Greenhill Equitation for nearly six years now and never want to go anywhere else. The hacking is fantastic, you can ride out for two or three hours and never see a road or traffic. You are much more likely to spot a few deer! Equally, we have use of both an indoor and outdoor school with a full set of jumps and lessons available to suit all abilities.

I keep my horse Oscar on full livery because I can only ride at weekends due to my work. All the staff are very committed and give me any help and advice I may need, and they update me on what Oscar has been doing since I was last there. The girls keep him busy, fit and interested with a combination of schooling, jumping and hacking. He really appreciates the daily routine on the yard combined with the variety of his exercise - and as a result is a calm and happy chap.

I don’t worry about Oscar at all between my visits as I know the welfare of the horses is always the prime concern and he is beautifully cared for.”

“Being a student at the RAU, Greenhill is an ideal yard to keep my horse at. I’m on DIY which fits in perfectly with me, but if I can’t make my horse one morning or evening then the yard staff are very happy to do him for me. Archie is very content and settled at Greenhill and I put this down to the routine the yard has. The facilities are fantastic, and throughout the winter the indoor school was ideal! Hacking in Cirencester Park is lovely; you can hack out for hours and never have to do any road work! I have regular lessons with Nathalie and Archie and I have benefitted greatly from these. If ever my horse does have a problem I know the yard staff are knowledgeable and very happy to help. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Greenhill to anyone!”
