Charlotte Wylde, Owner of Bally
I have only had one lesson with Jasmine so far. She gave me advice and helped me understand my horse more and my confidence has improved so much. Jasmine stayed with us for longer than an hour as she saw a problem in Bally that she wanted to put right. Bally is a totally transformed horse and can now work in an outline. Both me and Bally have deffinately come on and learnt alot since having a lesson with Jasmine and I would deffinately recommend her to anyone.

Jazz has been such a supportive teacher to me and has really helped me to become much more confident and able in my riding. She understands young horses and has passed her experience on to me to help deal with difficult behaviour better. It can become scary having a young horse that bolts, but since I’ve started working with Jazz she has showed me better ways to work my horse so that he stays interested in his work and his bolting in the school has dramatically reduced! Jazz always goes out of her way to help and I couldn’t rate her any higher.
Lottie Crocker, Owner of Priory farm livery stables.
Jazz has clipped two horses for me both of which I was unsure of how they would react. Jazz took her time reassuring the horses as she went along and by the end both horses had a very professional looking clip and both had a calm and confident experience with the clippers making it a positive experience for them. Thank you Jazz, Good job!
Kerry Pratt, Owner of Malibu.
Jazz started riding Malibu back in 2009. Malibu had sharer after sharer after sharer and was not being brought to the best of her potential. I, myself, even lost my confidence on her as she is not the easiest horse.
I approached Jazz who said she would ride her for me, transforming Malibu within a matter of weeks. Jazz taught her how to go correctly on the flat and jump. Jazz, with my permission, took Malibu to a show jumping competition where she went Double Clear. She was then registered BSJA and competed in the 80cm classes under Jazz's experienced hand.
Jazz continued Malibu's training, schooling her up to 1.40m.
Thanks to Jazz I have my confidence back and Malibu has also learnt how to go correctly, I feel I am able to maintain and carry on with her training.
I wish Jazz the best of luck with her 3 horses and her career in Show Jumping.
Charlotte Smithwhite, Owner of Otto
After a lot of debate about whether to let my young, talented Dressage horse Otto start jumping, I was faced with the task of finding a very patient but firm rider who doesn't easily lose their temper.
I had watched Jasmines progress with her own horse Casper Van Overis Z, who is of a very similar character to Otto and decided that she would be the best choice.
Jasmine has now been jumping Otto quite regularly since July 2010. He is definitely enjoying himself, but can be very green at times, which is when Jasmines horsemanship steps in. Jasmine and I have both been very pleased with his progress.
Jasmine also has a gift for teaching, she has given my brother Will and his pony Toots exercises and advice to further their Show Jumping and improve their results.
To conclude, I would openly reconmend Jasmine to anyone be it teaching, schooling or competing.
Sarah Wells, Owner of Sea Swallow.
When Jasmine started teaching Beau to jump, she was infinitely patient with her and helped me to see with persistence and a confident rider Beau was capable of many more things than I had hoped.
This helped both of us to progress through what had been a difficult period, for myself, Beau, and very much more so Jasmine, who had, during the time she was helping me with my own horse, had the irreplaceable Cicero taken before his time.
Anyone entrusting their horse to this "One in a Million" girl can be confident she will do all she can to make the learning experience a happy one for the horse, and will pass on valuable knowledge and experience to all she teaches.
Samantha Johnson, Owner of Dimitri
Jasmine is an amazing rider, after just one schooling session on my horse Dimitri, he was jumping confidently and happily working in an outline for me when I got back on him.
I also received a very knowledgeable lesson with Jasmine and learnt loads.
Racheal Welch, Owner of Freddie
I would recommend Jazz to anyone who needs help with bringing on there horse/s. She jumped my extremely tricky 17hh Warmblood Freddie who needs a very sympathetic rider who understands the whole concept of riding a horse with 'issues'! Freddie is not like many horses I know but Jazz rode him beautifully! Jumping him 1.40m on her first ride and she adapted very well to the way he 'needs' to be ridden! I was very impressed as not many people can ride him like Jazz did and I would highly recommend her for anybody looking for lessons or help with bringing on there horses.

Jasmine Kearey is my secret weapon for showing success, and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
Jazz is a quiet and effective rider, able to produce excellent results from my horse who isn’t the easiest of rides at times. Using Jazz to assist me with exercising and training my horse is invaluable, it allows me to view my horse from the position of the judge, and we have useful brainstorming sessions on his training.
Jazz is responsible for the trimming, clipping and presentation of my horse, using her experienced eye to create the correct polished look required.
Jazz is also kind enough to assist me at competitions, where her calm practical approach is much required. She is a huge help to ensure my horse has the wow factor, and keeps me calm and focused on the job.
Jazz will make your horse look and feel like a million dollars.
Georgie Whitaker, Owner of Wot a Charmer
Sadly back in December 2009 I had a nasty fall from my horse which resulted in a broken leg. I had to have an operation on my leg and was told I would not be able to do anything for 3 months. Having worked so hard to get my horse Mak’s fitness and training to a high level, I was concerned about him having 3 months off.
Jazz was the only person that I would consider to have school Mak over a period time. Jazz was extremely reliable and did not let me down once with Mak. She often videoed her sessions with him so that I could see how she was getting on with him, as I was not able to get to the yard. Jazz always ran anything by me that she wanted to do with Mak and did not do anything that I was not comfortable with. Jazz also did some jumping with Mak and took him to a BSJA competition where they achieved 2 double clears. Mak is not by any means an easy horse to ride, Jazz experienced a couple of falls with Mak herself but never gave up with him, and in the 3 months that Jazz was schooling him, he learnt lots of new techniques and was like a different horse to ride when I finally got back on.
When I started riding Mak again, I had lessons with Jazz so that I could understand her methods of training, and she could teach me what worked for her and Mak. I had completely lost my confidence because of my accident and Jazz was brilliant with me, very patient and understanding. Jazz has improved my technique, especially with jumping 1000 times over and I am so grateful to her for all her help and support through what was a very difficult time.
Emilie Hamilton-Smith, Owner of Stella
I have received lessons with Jazz before and could not recommend her any more highly. I found that she really helped me, not only in getting Stella more rideable under saddle but to help me understand her better.
I would never have jumped her if Jazz hadn't done it first, she was a very kind and is a very understanding horsewoman and I would entrust my horses education in her hands.
Amy Marie Shepard, Owner of Paris
I have had 1 lesson with Jasmine and could not recommend her any more highly. Just after 1 lesson my horse and I were communicating so much better, and working so much better from behind. I learnt so much in my lesson with Jasmine and my confidence rocketed to a high on my new ride Paris. I look forward to having some more lessons with Jasmine in the future
