Having recently sent a 15 year old, on her first time away anywhere on her own, to Talland for a week's intensive Training course. I must confess I was just the tiniest bit concerned beforehand. However, I really need not have worried. Everything went 100% smoothly from the organization side of things, a very efficient lady called Amber advised me competently before I booked, made great suggestions, and answered all my questions. The training holiday itself by far exceeded all expectations, on every level. If I was concerned that she might feel a bit out of her depth, this too was baseless. The career students took her under their wing and treated her like part of the group from day one, so she had an instant set of friends. I am sure her willingness to muck in and muck out and do chores helped with that. The room was typical student accommodation, basic, practical and clean. She absolutely raved about the food! Of course the most important part was the Riding, and also in this aspect Talland excelled. She had 2 or 3 lessons a day, a mix of group and private lessons plus a sidesaddle lesson and 2 lessons with the incredible Pammy Hutton herself. She felt she learned a lot from every horse and every instructor, all of whom made a point of striking the delicate balance of teaching her how to work on her weaknesses and at the same time letting her experience new things on the impeccably well trained and experienced schoolmaster horses. Of course she was put on a safe and possibly not the most exciting horse for her first lesson, but that is obviously only sensible. People arrive and the establishment doesn't know them from Adam. It would be silly and possibly detrimental to horse and rider to put them straight onto a more sensitive animal. She has not stopped talking about her experience since and when she competed the week after returning home, she rode her best ever tests by far for a first and second place, and her regular trainer was also much impressed with how much of a difference a week has made. I was so impressed I just booked her in for another week in May. I believe this is a place that suits those who truly want to learn and take that seriously.

I took several students to Talland for two weeks. What an experience! They were well received, well matched with horses and trainers and the school went above and beyond to give us the best training possible. Can’t wait to organize another adventure with Talland!

Oscar my white Maltese has found a groomer who always manages to fit him in when he needs cutting. I go for coffee at the farm shop and Oscar is ready and waiting an hour later. Quite happy. Now Oscar is 9 years old and has skin warts. he is a little plump despite senior food and exercise. he traveled from South Africa when we emigrated .all in all a spoiled dog. Thank you and highest recommendation to Mark Regards Elaine

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
