Thank you to Alec Miles for his support and guidance with our six year old cob gelding. We met Alec four months ago whilst having a disastrous dressage test (40%), and opted for a few lessons at his Equestrian Centre in Fair Oak. With his kind, professional approach, he worked with us to improve the way our horse is going, and improve position. We quickly started getting in the ribbons and today we achieved not one, but TWO 1st's! We would recommend Miles Equestrian to anyone.

I have known Alec for over 10 yrs and during this time he has developed a good quality livery and training yard that has an exceptionally friendly caring approach. He has a good team of caring staff and has built up a good reputation for breaking and schooling and is very competent in all aspects. He regularly competes successfully in dressage, eventing and show jumping on a range of different types of horses, competently and with good results.

I had known of Alec Miles for a number of years ,mistakingly believing that he only took on problem horses to prepare them for sale. I even recommended him to a family member whose horse simply wouldn't stop growing and was too much for them. Needless to say Alec took the very large Oldenburg gelding and In a short time competed him successfully and helped find him a new and not so petite owner.
A chance phone call with Alec made me realise that his training and schooling services covered a full range of equestrian activities. Within a short time, Alec was schooling my two carriage driving Saxon warmbloods under saddle. Each horse was assessed for its strengths and weaknesses and a schooling regime undertaken ,which had its target based on my own driving goals, but at all times respected the fundamentals of traditional dressage.
Six months on, I am delighted in my horses improvements. Alec is reliable , reasonably priced and a pleasure to work with. He treats my horses as if there were his own, combining skill with sensitivity. If you are looking for a trainer to help you and your horse improve ,then you need look no further.
