“The real test of a good livery stable is whether the horses are relaxed and happy. At Tunley they certainly are, with the added bonus that they are looked after by some real professionals who also have great enthusiasm and a sense of fun.” David arrived November 2008
“When I bought Oli and moved to Tunley Equestrian Centre I was instantly made to feel welcome. Everyone at the yard is so friendly it makes it a really enjoyable place to spend your spare time. Most importantly is the quality of care given to the horses. They have an excellent routine which ensures they are happy and content. Oli and I have been through some turbulent times and Jilly & Jo have always been a fantastic support. Not only has Jo transformed the way that I ride, but the way my horse goes too, allowing both the partnership and trust between horse and rider to flourish.” Alex & Oliver joined TEC in April 2008.
“Flynn and I have been at Tunley Equestrian Centre for almost three months now – and nothing seems to be too much trouble for me and my boy. Because he has sweet itch they have made grazing arrangements for him so he is happy and comfortable. Jilly and Jo have made us both very welcome and I wish I had moved here sooner. Although I am a rather ‘un-happy hacker’ I do not feel out of place in this yard (and I am being kindly encouraged to expand my comfort zone). Jo is a great instructor and very supportive. The flexible assisted livery means I have the support I need when I need it, but it still means that my horse is mine – not all of us just want to ride and not do the mucky stuff (although my husband can’t understand the need to get down and get dirty).” Pauline, Sarah & Flynn arrived March 2011.
“I could never thank Jo and Jilly enough for all the help and support they’ve given me and my daughter over the last 10 years, without them I would never have been able to be a horse owner again. They also bred our beautiful and wonderful MALCOLM !!! Thank you Jo and Jilly.” Sarah and Laura have in one form or another been with TEC since 2001
“The yard has become part of the family for us Francis’s. We have all spent many happy hours there and made lots of good friends, including Jilly and Jo. They are both extremely knowledgeable and always happy to help with anything needed. I know I can always rely on them for advice and help or just for a laugh. They have taught us all a lot about horses and riding. I have never enjoyed my riding more and both my daughters have gained so much from us having a horse there. What ever you are looking for you will be pleased at TEC, an excellent yard whether you are a happy hacker or a serious competitor.” Kate, Paul, Bethan & Rachel Francis initially started with us by sharing a horse, Tree back in 2006. They now have Sapphire on loan.
“I have known and ridden with Jo and Jilly Clarke for over 15 years and kept horses with them since I bought my first (from them!) many years ago! They run an efficient yard which at the same time is friendly with a fantastic, encouraging atmosphere – whatever your goal they will help you achieve this. Unfortunately I moved away from the area, but this was a far easier decision than the realisation that I would also have to move my horses in order to see them – I only wish every county had such an amazing yard for horses and their owners.” Charly & Dolly regretfully left in April 2011.
