The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.


Pablo Picasso


My mare was based with Daisy on training for just under 3 years where she arrived having been just lightly backed. She really benefited from being at a smaller professionally run yard where each horse is treated as an individual to nurture their personalities and ensure they can work at their best. The yard is always welcoming and run by knowledgeable, capable staff who you can tell genuinely love the horses that they work with. I have always felt that my mare has been in very safe hands. Daisy herself is a very talented rider with positive training methods. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who wanted to give their horse the best start in life. She built a strong relationship with my mare as a youngster and really tailored her training, taking into consideration her size and physical ability. She has been instrumental in her education and has laid solid foundations for her career ahead. If you want to unlock your horse’s full potential I would highly recommend Daisy!

Scarlet and I think you are fabulous, so happy entrusting both of our lovely ponies with you and your happy caring team. They look super and we couldn't be happier anywhere than with you Daisy. Everyone I know that knows you sings your praises.

“I have never seen a happier horse than mine since being at Daisy’s yard. Daisy and the girls who work there are so lovely and make you feel so welcome. My horse is going so beautifully and is loving her training. She is getting stronger and so much more supple as the weeks go on and is improving by the day. Her coat is so shiny and she is always turned out to perfection. I have never made a better decision than to put my horse with Daisy.  So much so, that I am moving my other horse there in the coming weeks. Daisy’s  teaching is also brilliant, she really gets the best out of both horse and rider! I am a very happy client! If you are thinking of putting your horse into a yard – do not hesitate to put it with Daisy Jackson Dressage!”

“We asked Daisy if she would take our four year old Dutch Warmblood, Reuben for backing. He was proving quite tricky to introduce a saddle to as he is cold backed and did not like having a girth done up. 

Daisy took Reubin very slowly, getting him completely used to having a saddle on and working gradually up to being leant on then sat on without him becoming frightened. He got used to the bustle of the yard and enjoyed the relaxed, friendly atmosphere as did we on our regular visits. He has come back to us a calm, balanced horse, happy to accept the saddle and to be ridden off the lunge, ready to move on to the next stage of his training. 

I’m really glad we chose Daisy; she is a talented, confident and experienced trainer who would never rush a horse and goes at the pace that they can cope with, making the backing process as smooth and stress free as possible. As a young and successful dressage rider she is also an inspiration for my daughter, who learned a great deal from watching and talking to Daisy. We were also able to see Daisy working with her own youngsters and discuss her expectations for them. We will certainly be bringing our horse back for further lessons and feel that we could call on Daisy for advice whenever we need it. “


I've really enjoyed attending the clinics with Daisy. She is not only skilled in dealing with young horses, which has helped me with bringing on my youngster but she is down to earth, making things very easy to understand and gives you an honest opinion too. There is no 'one size fits all approach’; she is very good at pinpointing what works for individual clients, to fit with their learning style and what motivates them. Having had three falls in the space of a week, her sensitive approach and patience really helped build my confidence back up; it took a little bit of a knock. The joys of dealing with babies! Daisy has a solution for every problem you might come across training your young horse and she instinctively knows how much to push horse & rider, to get the best out of them, without over doing it.

Another lady on the yard that I keep my horse on arranged a clinic with Daisy which I attended about 9 months ago... I was totally amazed with what I came away with considering I’m no dressage rider! In all honesty, I never expected to get so much out of a single session, and now we are still taking (big!) steps forward each time we have our lessons and I truly look forward to them. Daisy has such an amazing way with both people and the horses – I have found it tricky to find someone who understands the way of thinking of a sometimes hot headed, big ginger horse scared of his own shadow but she just ‘gets’ him. She will explain things in different ways to help if needed and pushes you enough outside of your comfort zone to show you what you can achieve but in a way that you don’t even realise you are doing it. Prior to meeting Daisy I had a few confidence issues following a couple of falls but all the little tips that she has to get him to relax more, such simple easy things to do have made a huge difference to when I have been out in the cold, dark winter evenings by myself. I really can’t recommend Daisy enough, very wise head on young shoulders, her enthusiasm makes me want to spend hours out there and the way that I view flatwork has been totally changed 110% for the better. Big thank you Daisy, I can’t wait until next time to see what we can achieve. 

As an employee; I highly recommend this pathway for anyone with a genuine passion and determination to advance their knowledge and excel in dressage. The most supportive employers, who hold the utmost respect for their employees. My riding and overall knowledge has progressed enormously since working here and my career path is 100% valued and supported. This is such a lovely place to work, with a friendly yet professional atmosphere and a selection of beautiful, talented horses to grow alongside. I love my job!

Daisy schooled my pony for about 6 months, my pony absolutely adored her and so did we! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

I have had two horses based with Daisy since May 2015 and I would not hesitate to recommend her services for livery and training. The standard of care and training is very high. I have never once turned up for an unscheduled cuddle to find any aspect of their care out of place - despite the fact that one of my horses is the filthiest beast known to man, and I have, on a previous yard, arrived to find his stable in such a state that it was necessary to muck him out and add new bedding rather than leave him like that all night. I have also found it easy to arrange lessons, which is no small praise as I work basically all the time, and I have found this a struggle in the past. My boys are always happy, in excellent condition, and continually progressing in their training. They enjoy regular hacks, daily (individual) turnout, and are ridden five times per week. Daisy has also been excellent in starting my younger horse’s competition career, and if you have a whirling dervish that needs a confident rider to get him out there, look no further! The yard is supported by an excellent team and Daisy and Debbie are always quick to let me know if there is a problem, and either make suggestions to solve the problem, or arrange an appropriate assessment by a vet, farrier etc. We have been pretty demanding customers with regular trips to and visits from the vet, saddler, dentist, and physio. The yard are always very accommodating with handling (and loading when necessary) the boys for appointments at short notice, letting me know the outcome and carrying out management any recommendations. All in all I highly recommend for short or long term training livery!”

“I have weekly lessons with Daisy after going to her feeling that I had become stuck in a rut. Daisy is a fabulous instructor who always gives me confidence. She explains everything in a way that I can understand. Her lessons are always interesting and fun and with Daisy instructing me, my horse and I feel great. Daisy is a lovely person who has a lot to give and I really enjoy her company. I really cannot praise her enough. She is helping me to have a much better relationship with my horse, and working at making me a more effective rider”

To have a lesson and have the biggest smile on your face, and feel like Wow just Wow...That was amazing, I can’t wait to do it again. That is the type of trainer that everyone should have.

Daisy is a fantastic trainer and explains things in a way that is easy to understand and gets results. She is very patient and has been great at helping build my confidence after a fall. She is also a very effective but sympathetic rider and one of only a few I trust to ride my mare. I would definitely highly recommend Daisy to anyone.

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for looking after my boy so well. I cannot really believe the difference in his schooling in the short 3 weeks you had him. From a horse that couldn't canter on the correct leg EVER to getting it every time was something I wasn't expecting! But what was more important to me was that you gave me updates almost every day! Daisy he looks amazing and I am now so much more positive about our future! I can't wait to have a lesson again to show you our progress!”
