“I learnt to ride at TPEC many years ago, now I’m very lucky to have my own horse and I have been a livery at Trent Park Equestrian Centre for two years now, I have to be truthful I don’t know what I would have done without the help of all the staff at TPEC. They look after my horse as if he was one of there own, he’s so happy and it really does show. We had a difficult start in the beginning, I got injured and six months later my horse was injured – to this day I can’t thank the staff at TPEC for everything they did for him that awful night. The team were my saviours, they brought my beautiful horse back into work with care and patience and today I’m having the best time of my life with him.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for all the hard work the staff put in every day.

TPEC truly are an amazing team, thank you for everything.”
