Gilles’ knowledge, expertise and brilliant coaching, coupled with Pip’s boundless energy, efficiency and good humour makes GP Equestrian a happy home for my horses and where I can be confident of their well-being. Just wish I could move in myself!

Gilles, he does not judge you, he encourages you to ride better by developing your skills. He does not focus on your mistakes, just your abilities and the qualities of the horse, so that you evolve together.

Every lesson I have with Gilles a unique experience. He really is an outstanding teacher, who has the ability to transmit his precious knowledge me to feel these “magic” sensations when riding!!

Lucy Peters

My horse is far from straightforward and finding Gilles has given us such great positive progress. Gilles rides and teaches with a unique classical combination of expertise, experience and empathy: makes it look so so easy, even my horse smiles!

Giles not only rode one of my best ever horses – and did the most amazing job – but he also took one of the quirkiest horses we ever had and made him look easy. He taught him to behave as a gentleman and to perform with ease and confidence. This horse looked as though it was made for the job as a result of Giles’ patient and sympathetic handling. Giles is loving towards his animals and they all respond accordingly. He rides beautifully and is always a lovely person to be around as an owner. He and his wife, Pip, are a formidable couple. They work as a team and are always the true professionals. On another note, I needed a horse to be sold and left the entire job to them both. They executed this task quickly and efficiently. Should anyone be looking for equestrian assistance, I would recommend them highly.
