Some recent feedback

Thanks for all the kind words x

"Just a quick email to say thank you to everyone this weekend. We had a superb time with Elle coming 4th in 2'6" on Saturday despite this being her first ODE ever and having never even done a dressage test before and me winning the 2'0" on Sunday without falling off or dying of fright!

We will certainly be back for more and have already wound up some other wimps like me to have a go next time."
Louisa Brook, Competitor
"Thanks for organizing such a fun event!"
Charlie Brooks, Clinic Attendee at our hedge Hopping Session
"It really felt like a mini BE event rather than a glorified hunter trial. I think more venues need you to get them organised like that!!

I was very impressed with your organisation for the event at the weekend. Start times posted in an obvious place on the website and well highlighted, nice to get a running order and reminder of times for my section in the event programme, good sign posts to the event and around the site, good courses and excellent going, and helpful to be able to leave £1 instead of waiting for dressage sheets. All in all a very well organised and smooth running event (or at least it seemed to be!). Please run some more like that, we had a great time!"
Lucy Graham, Competitor and Equestrian PR Specialist
"I can't fault the course or conditions and only heard positive comments throughout the day from other competitors."
Joanna Poultney, Competitor
"For the last two years I have volunteered at many professional equine training events. As a former competitor and groom for a BE professional and now a “pony club mother” I have experienced events from all perspectives and therefore know when an event is organised well.

Fran Agius is a true professional and organises these events to the same standards as any affiliated event. I honestly find volunteering at these events extremely rewarding and great fun.

Stewarding at Horse Events is always enjoyable and Fran and her team make every effort to ensure everything is run smoothly from team briefs, to the most amazing chocolate brownies you have ever tasted. As always there is a great buzz in the steward’s tent before and after every event and there is a sense of achievement when all competitors have competed, rosettes have been awarded and all the stewards have a well-earned glass of wine (or two) and BBQ.

I would 100% recommend volunteering to anyone who is considering being a volunteer to contact Fran to enjoy the next season with her and her team."
Claire Ogden, Volunteer and Competitors Mother
"Thank you for the hunting clinic and hedgehopping sessions, I’ve really enjoyed them and you have been a great organizer. Hope you’ll do some more clinics and camps with us. Thanks again Fran, you were great and I enjoyed working with you."
Sam Sandberg, Owner at Lyneham Heath Farm
"I am pleased to say that I had a great time at your ODE today, was so well organised and everyone was really friendly and made it a great place to do my first ever event. Like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for making it a great experience, hope to come back to do Combined Training/Hunter Trial."
Jacqueline Nelmes, Competitor
"I just wanted to say thank you very much for a very enjoyable day on Saturday. I particularly liked the cross country course as it had lots of different types of fences. It rode beautifully and the going was perfect as well. So, thank you very much for all your hard work and I look forward to coming over to Elmwood again."
Mary Allbrook, Competitor
"Just a quick note to say thank you for accepting my exceptionally late entry with a difference (no stamp!!) . I really enjoyed your event and thought it was very well run. Well done!"
Christina Wiederkehr, Competitor
"Thank you very much for a very well-run and enjoyable event - I do wonder why people bother going BE under novice level when there are events like yours!"
Sarah Smith, Competitor
"Just wanted to say congratulations for such a fabulous day at the one day event it was very well run and everyone was very helpful, we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Thanks"
Amy, Rose and Mandi, Competitors
"Dear Fran & the rest of the Horse Events team
I just wanted to quickly thank you for all your hard work in continuing to run safe but fun events for us all – it has been a real highlight that despite the crazy world we currently live in, we are lucky enough to still be able to enjoy the sport that we love so much.

Thank you

"Thank you so much for a series of really fabulous events this summer.
My son took part in three of the SEG events, having never evented before this year, and he absolutely loved every minute (well, maybe he didn’t LOVE the dressage, but you know what I mean!).
Nothing ever ran late, the online scoring was brilliant, the volunteers were friendly and smiley, the courses were well built and the venues were lovely. As someone who spent much of their youth riding at BE events,. They really are comparable to the best of the BE events. And all having to be done under covid regulations too - you really did save the summer. Thank you.
Best wishes
Belinda and William Naylor"

"I just want to thank you so very much for making my daughter’s first “proper” 70cm Ode such a lovely experience. She was more than nervous but your stewards were fantastic at putting her at her ease and offered encouragement and made her smile. She had the biggest thrill of her life XC and had a fantastic day. Thank you.

"Thank you so much for a really fab day. So good to be back out eventing...and having never been to Elmwood I will definitely be back! SJ and XC courses were great, educational but fair...volunteers so friendly and helpful...and everything ran like clockwork...if this is eventing covid style then I think I prefer it to the old ‘normal’ days!!

"Hi Fran
I just wanted to say what a fantastic job you and your team did today to keep everyone as safe as possible. It worked really well. 
I rather liked not being able to warm the children up, so much better than jostling with all the others at the practice fence and I think they did a better job without me!

My husband is heavily into risk for work (don't ask, yawn!) and was impressed which doesn't come easily. 

So a big thank you to all of your team they did a fantastic job and were lovely with the girls too.

See you again later in the summer.

Kind regards 

Tessa "

for enabling eventing to recommence yesterday at Elmwood. It was the most
amazing day, so well organised , the atmosphere was calm and chilled ,

best experience ever!  I love this new way of  eventing.

"Absolutely superb two days of fence judging. Well provided for with food and dry beverages (just add hot water). The covid protocols were superb and the provisions of masks, gloves and sanitiser were exemplary. Triple A+ all round!!

British Eventing take note, the bar has been set very high! "
Elmwood ODE 4-5th July, Volunteer Fence Judge
"Thank you for amazing event today. For us first event of the season
As always super well organised, run on time, always helpful stewards and great locations. I’m a big fan of Horse-Events.
I have feelings that social distancing made the event easier for competitors and helpers as there was no waiting for results. I was home 1.5 hours faster than usual 👍🏻
Thank you again"

"Hi!!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
I just wanted to email to say a massive thank you for the event at Dauntsey this weekend!
It was so wonderful to be back out competing! All precautions taken for Covid was perfectly executed with little impact to our day! 
The drive through check in is brilliant and hope this is something that will continue post covid (whenever that day might be!). 
Please do pass on our thanks to all those at Dauntsey, officials, volunteers, fence judges and the Sturgis family for hosting!
Hope to be back out competing with Horse Events soon!

"To all of you who worked at Swalcliffe,

Thank you very much for making this event so pleasurable and most of all, for generously sending us our rosette AND the price in the post.
I really appreciate all the effort and time that goes into an event, so it was a pleasant surprise to receive our goodies in the mail today.

With kind regards,
"
Horse-Events Swalcliffe ODE Aug 2020, Competitor
"Also can I say we went of Oxstalls yesterday for your ODE and it was so brilliantly organised and run. Please can you pass on our thanks to your team and yourself. We loved the efficiency, professionalism and kindness of everyone there. It ran so smoothly and was very peaceful, and being on young and quite stupid horses it was just brilliant. So a BIG thank you all round.

Kind regards

Charlotte"
