‘What a team to be a part of!!
I’m proud to have been with Danni (as wingwoman and groom!) at every single one of her 5*’s with multiple horses, as well as other major events over the last 7 years. Safe to say I’m a bit of a part timer, as so much effort and attention has gone into everything before I join in at the events, but I wouldn’t miss being a part of this amazing team where I can be’

‘Danni has been professional, calm and patient helping with  my ex racehorse Tom. Her planning for his sessions or stays with her is perfect for him. He has gained so much confidence and you can see he trusts her when he’s asked to do something new and strange.
Our aim is to give him a good life after racing which I’m sure we are on our way to achieving I’d recommend Danni for coaching all levels of rider, schooling horses and ponies when life is too busy or they need a bit of extra help.’
Cathy Skelton, Owner
‘Joining Danni and Team DD in 2019 has proved to be a great decision for us, a thrilling experience all the way up to 5*!
Throughout Danni has been kind, thoughtful ,cheerful and a great communicator, whilst also being focussed and competitive.
She and all at Team DD are committed to the horses in their care, showing patience, energy and great attention to detail. Keeping the horses at home means they are very much part of the family.
Danni has created a friendly, welcoming and fun team whilst also being professional and ambitious.
We thoroughly recommend the Team DD experience.’
