Straight from the horse's mouth


I've kept my horse Ace with Sonia and Phil for as long as I can remember and wouldn't consider anywhere else. Ace used to be a skinny, nervous non-eater, however combining Phil's expertise in nutrition and Sonia's training he's now strong, calm and happy. What more could an owner want!
