  • I spent three months working at Howletts Hall in the summer of 2011, and I would definitely recommend this yard as all my experiences there were wholly positive. I received useful and informative advice on all aspects of grooming, horse care and general yard maintenance, and also enjoyed some valuable training in both jumping and flatwork. I was encouraged to develop as a rider and a groom in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and was treated like a member of the family while living with the other grooms and employers. Overall, the people are lovely, the place was great and I would definitely go back!
