"We bought Caesar from April in December 2018 and can’t recommend her and Caesar highly enough. We had been through a number of disastrous attempts to buy a horse so we were very anxious about looking at another horse, especially a thoroughbred. April was fantastic through the whole process. She was sympathetic and understanding of our previous experience and did an amazing job at making sure my daughter felt safe and comfortable when coming to try Caesar. He was everything she said he was and more and we couldn’t be happier with him. April has produced such a lovely horse in Caesar I will be keeping an eye on her future horses when the time comes"
"I have known Alysha Harlen (from Alysha Harlen Eventing & Filipa Equine) since 2010 when I purchased a competition horse (Bao Beat) from her which she had re-schooled once his career had ended as a racehorse. Alysha is a very talented and extremely qualified re-trainer of ex-racehorses thanks to her reassuring and positive training technique. All of Monty’s great characteristics I attribute to Alysha’s re-training of him with a kindness and compassion that only comes from someone that loves what they do."
"I have had Cookie almost 3 years who was retrained by Alysha Harlen (of Alysha Harlen Eventing and Filipa Equine). Over this time I have learnt his personality, strengths and quirks. He is the kindest, most laid back horse, always loves to make friends with both horses and humans and everyone I know has a soft spot for him. His jump is incredible, always gets so excited and brave in the showjumping and cross country arenas, with rarely ever refusing or spooking to this day. His attitude to work is insane; through patience and persistence, Cookie continually works hard and loves to work hard for me to the best of his abilities, as if he knows it makes me happy."
"Having seen the results Alysha (from Alysha Harlen Eventing and Filipa Equine) had with Gizmo, I would have no hesitation in sending horses to her for schooling or re-education. When I first purchased Giz, I had only ridden school horses and moving onto my own horse was a daunting experience. Fortunately, Giz has been an excellent horse. His good ground manners mean he is always easy to handle and tack up. Under saddle he is tolerant of beginner riders and his established flat work meant I learnt a lot from him. Gizmo is a great jumping horse and very bold. I don't have a particularly strong lower leg and Gizmo has given me a great introduction to show jumping and cross country."
