Sarah George was recommended to me by a friend, as I had a feisty  youngster  for sale that needed a lot of work and time, which I could not give. Sarah has the facilities, expertise and experience and she took great care in finding the “right home” for this particular pony. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.

Thank you for looking after Quicklea and Livingstone so well and for giving your time to support their individual training programmes. I really appreciate all you do.
Sarah May

Following the tragic situation with our horse Rags, I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and advice.  The rehabilitation service you provided was both highly professional, but still caring and was a huge comfort at what was a painful and stressful time for us.
Your reassuring words for Maggie and Georgia were an enormous help and really did help them come to terms with the situation and ease the feelings of guilt that it was somehow their fault. It was also apparent that you have a good relationship with Bushy Vets, which is obviously mutually respectful. The fact that you could organize the visits and checkups on our behalf and keep the insurance company up to date with the situation and invoicing was also a real benefit.
As offered, if you ever need a reference for the services you provide at Team Green, please me know as I would be happy to give one.
Kind regards and thanks
Jim Collier


Team Green Horses provides quality training for those wishing to gain a qualification in Horse Care and Riding. We train students on a private basis and also work with a leading equine college to deliver courses. Courses are suitable for those who are intending to find work in the equine industry and also for those who are looking to improve their knowledge and skills but who ride for pleasure rather than intending to make it a career.

We are able to offer National Work Based Diplomas ( formally, NVQ’s) at levels 1,2 and 3. Courses are free for 16-18 year olds. There is also  some funding available for adults (19 plus) which often means they can also do courses free of charge. An FE bursary may also  be available to assist with the purchase of essential equipment depending on circumstances.  We offer full and part time options with flexible hours to suit students; this can include weekend and evenings.  These courses are well suited to people who prefer a more practical approach to learning. All training and assessment takes place at Upper Wick Stables and is done with a fully qualified assessor / IV at a pace to suit the learner.

We also offer training for BHS examinations, pony club tests and riding and road safety.

For more information and details of adult funding contact Sarah
