"Andrew has given me the confidence to achieve with my horse, even when things are not going well. He has given me the inspiration to carry on and not give up. When I first met Andrew, 4 years ago, he asked what I wanted to achieve. My reply was to compete in a Pre-novice in my 40th year. Well, with Andrew's help we did it in my 39th year! Without Andrew's care, consideration and wealth of experience, I do not think I would have gotten this far. I have seen Andrew ride many different horses and he always get the best from them. Andrew is an inspiration to us all."

"I was lucky enough to meet Andrew 10 years ago. Having watched him compete, I was very impressed with his horsemanship, his obvious love of horses & his great patience and knowledge with young horses. He has taken & ridden my horses ever since. He now rides my promising, home bred 6yr. old Star of May with great skill."

" My horse 'Mullentine My Rose' (Bambi), has considerable potential. However, after a very scary fall I decided that she needed someone with more experience to help her achieve that potential. I asked Andrew if he would take over the ride and after only one full season they are already bringing home the ribbons. No-one, except close friends, would ever realise how much Andrew has managed to achieve with Bambi. Andrew is extremely underestimated. he can get a tune out of any horse. He is a patient and considerate rider. Most others would have given up with some of his charges, including mine. I hope he is recognised for his achievements."

"Andrew has been bringing on my event horses for several years now, since taking on the ride on "Times Square II" (Gordon) at Intermediate level. Bringing his calm, professional approach to this ride, he partnered Gordon successfully through to Advanced level, culminating in qualifying for Blenheim by being one of a few combinations to complete an extremely demanding 3-day at Bramham at temperatures of 32°! Gordon was sold shortly before Blenheim and Andrew now partners my new young horse, "Marston Hill Charmer" (Charm). They are now starting to get in the points, having ironed-out the early 'novice' inclination to let the attention wander, and get Charm to focus on the fences!"
