"As an Equine Massage Therapist, it is always a pleasure to treat the horses at Sarah Aldermans Dressage, Shaffold House Stables in Chidwickbury. The yard is amazingly beautiful with excellent facilities, it has a wonderful team providing a calming and welcoming atmosphere. Each horse’s individual athletic needs are taken into consideration, with their regular maintenance therapy treatments. Exquisite care and attention to detail are of the utmost priority when it comes to their horses, offering a professional and knowledgeable 5-star dressage rider and livery service."
“Sarah is the loveliest and warmest professional I’ve ever worked with, I felt instantly comfortable in training was so insightful. Of paramount importance, has been the empathy and bond that Sarah has with each horse. This enables the horse to be trained and educated as an individual, gaining the most from their ability, producing optimal performance, whilst always putting the horse first.”
"I have known Sarah since 2006 during which time I have owned and bred horses for competition. Having struggled to find a sympathetic, knowledgeable trainer able to take a horse up through the levels, I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been introduced to Sarah."
"Sarah's knowledge, passion, understanding and high level of experience has been a valuable and essential part in the development and training of all our horses. From breaking, progressing through all levels up to Grand Prix and competing them from novice to Inter 1."
"I have first- hand experience of Sarah’s coaching and mentoring talent/skills. Sarah has being coaching Amelia, my daughter for the past few years. Her ability to interpret and incorporate riding technique delivered with support and enthusiasm have given my daughter inspiration, confidence and a great skill set to enable her to accomplish, progress and compete."
"Sarah always wants to achieve and go that “extra mile” to make both horse and owner happy. Put simply Sarah is caring, compassionate and a highly skilled equestrian. I would not hesitate in recommending her to the owner of a horse at any level."
"Of immense value is Sarah’s ability to access the riders skill and potential, enabling her to match this to a prospective horse purchase. Equally important is her ability to assess and establish the way of going and level of training that is a necessary intrinsic part of any successful rider/horse partnership."
