Testimonials

Dave and Bridget Sutton recommended Donna Smith to us when we bought Henton First Edition (Fraser) as a 3 year old. Under Donna's  supervision and expertise, he is developing the confidence and skills to move up the grades. He has talent but it has been  Donna's skill and professionalism and her calm manner which is giving Fraser confidence. Donna loves what she does and has a great connection with horses. As owners, we are really enjoying the experience of seeing Fraser develop under Donna's very thorough approach to bringing out the best in our young horse.

I have been lucky enough to train with Donna over the last few years with both my 2 star horse Kingston Time and my young horse Astek Guardsman. My results this year especially in the cross country are a credit to Donna's wonderful coaching and advice. THANKS Donna!
