Sophie is amazing! She runs a riding school like no other I have been to. I have found in the past that other places have not much interest in showing you anything other than getting on their horse to ride and even the interest they show in your riding Is not much better. Her bubbly and witty personality makes the experience with her great too 😁 you not only learn but you have fun! She not only will teach you how to ride, she will teach you basically anything you ask about. I have learnt so much already off her! Keep up the great work sophie and keep being the awesome you!
