Testimonials

Lisa Roper is an incredibly intuitive instructor for both horse and rider, my daughter has had only 4-5 lessons with Lisa  so far and has helped move them both forward considerably !. She has such an  eye for detail, (this is why she is nicknamed hawk eye)! which in turn has given them both the confidence and knowledge to move forward together in such a short space of time. The passion that Lisa has for teaching is a true gift.

Lisa has a wealth of experience and has this amazing ability to tune in ‘immediately’ to both horse and rider’s capabilities and potential. When she first meets with her pupil – she has a chat about the expectations to be achieved and with her encouraging way of teaching, week by week, Lisa pushes you beyond your wildest dreams – and you come away feeling elated and focused, ready to achieve your goal , with brilliant results !

Lisa Roper Show jumping lessons with Chilworth Riding Club – Gill Woodthorpe Committee Member

 

Two years ago I was recommended Lisa Roper to train my young horse, he was 4years old. The task in hand was not easy as I am a mature novice rider on a very young horse. I guess you could say we were both green, but keen! Lisa has taught me how to ride and now my boy has 3 super paces and I am growing in confidence. The lessons are always fun, always relevant and correct.

Earlier this year Lisa helped me do my first show in which I came 4th out of 8 in the ridden cob. Now the flat work is established I am working on my first dressage test and starting to attend jumping clinics. Can’t recommend or thank Lisa enough for the progress we have made and the fun we have had!

Lisa mix of technical and sympathetic training has greatly benefitted our two different horses, would recommend her as a trainer for young excitable horses rite through to schoolmasters just needing fine tuning.

Couldn’t recommend Lisa highly enough:

My partner started his riding ‘adventure’ in his fifties and understandably was really apprehensive about his first lesson.
Lisa put him at ease straight away and with her patience and enthusiastic teaching his confidence just grew and within six months of starting to ride, was able to join me jumping at all our local UK Chaser courses. Lisa has also been awesome in tirelessly helping me bring on my rather enthusiastic youngster, through mud, sweat and many many tears!  She is an excellent communicator with the rare ability to explain and demonstrate things in way that is easily understood and put into practice.  I would highly recommend Lisa to any level of rider.

I have been using Lisa now for bout year & a half now for weekly lessons for my daughter with her pony. Very knowledgable on jumping & competing. Lovely calm lady very patient & a very good way of explaining things & teaching. Always will fit me in at the last minute. My daughter loves her & would never have any one else & I would always recommend her to others.

My name is Nicki and I first contacted Lisa after being at the end of my tether and a nervous wreck with my old horse. Lisa is very kind and empathic in her teaching style and skills and is able to tweak your lessons to a level individual to your needs. Following a few emotional months with Lisa I decided that it was time to face facts that we were not compatible! Within a few months I had bought my 2 dream horses and have now been out competing at dressage and show jumping again, 2 things I never thought I would do again. Lisa became a great friend and coach and taught me to see that I can do things, since her instruction I have never looked back! I highly recommend Lisa for all disciplines, especially for nervous riders as you will soon be soaring the sky like Roxy and I!

I have been using Lisa both for her book-keeping and equestrian services for many years. Her organisational skills and “can-do” approach have never faltered. Rarely would you find anyone with more experience and knowledge within the equine industry and furthermore a willingness to share her knowledge and contacts.”

While training with Lisa, I had the most successful season with my adorable but tricky trekenher mare! We qualified and successfully competed at the Winter League show jumping Finals. Her sessions are always structured so that we know what it is we’re aiming to achieve by the end, and to this day we have always achieved it! I value the time she gives me to feel and think during our sessions so that what I learn comes from the true partnership developing with my horse topped off with Lisa’s expert eye and input.
