From Helen Usoro:
Eventer and owner of Joghi, re-trained racehorse
Kept her horse with Annie for 3 years, 2018 - 2021
I became part of Annie's yard when I brought my 10yr old ex-racehorse to her for full livery. My job meant that I was regularly out of the country, therefore, I needed a yard where I was confident that my wee TB who I have had since he was 2yrs old, would be well looked after. Trust is vital when handing over the reins of your much loved equine, but is surprisingly not always apparent in many livery yards!
However, Annie's yard is like no other I have so far experienced! For one thing it is small and personable and you feel like one of the family, but also, I had complete trust in Annie, and Johgi was always well looked after. Over the 3 years I was there, I had much help, support and tuition from Annie which was always pleasurable, fun and professional. One of Annie's greates assets (which I hope never disappears) is her attitude to life! She is ALWAYS upbeat, no matter what life has thrown at her, and you are always greeted with a smile - a smile costs nothing but is priceless to the person receiving it.
I had a major change of circumstances due to COVID-19 and so had to leave the yard and now live in Scotland. It was a difficult move for me, but Annie and her family supported me in every way for which I am most grateful. Annie deserves success - she is hardworking, diligent and dedicated. I consider the Forsyths friends for life, and wish Annie much luck and success.
From Lucy Wells:
Dressage Rider and owner of 5 year old, 17 hh Hanoverian
I was recommended Annie by an eventing friend for my very green 17hh 5 year old Hanoverian who was only recently backed, has a strong character but is also very sensitive so I knew he needed someone very capable and with an understanding of talented youngsters.
I trusted my boy Murphy with Annie in October 2020 and could not be more pleased with how he has progressed in his training and his general being. A professional dressage rider myself I was aware the best start for him would be with someone more experienced with sharp youngsters and with a more forward thinking varied approach to his training.
In the last 5 months Annie has progressed him into being a relaxed happy horse who is so eager to please and much more confident in his work and with his power. I have been a distant owner and Annie has kept me very well informed and treated him like her own with a very professional understanding manner. Personal circumstances have meant I've had to move but I would not hesitate in the future to put Murphy back in Annie’s care. I look forward to following Annie’s journey with her super horses and I’m sure she will have great success in her future.
Many thanks Annie,
