Reviews Helen Warren - BD Competitor " Pony is still broken but will definitely compete BD again at Newbold when we’re back! It’s an excellent venue with really friendly staff and I love the fact you can swap a rosette for a cup of tea 👍🏻😉" Kerry Hill - Regular Competitor " This is an absolutely fantastic venue. I've been coming to Newbold Verdon since shows were just held in the grass paddocks and I'm so impressed at its progression and fantastic facilities. The arenas are great, there's a great variety of events and clinics, fabulous food, great warmup arenas, good parking and overall organised and smoothly ran every single time. Will respond to queries quickly and are helpful. It's easily one of my most frequented venues. Really impressive and I will continue to support." Maia Bryce - Unaff Cash Builder Series - WINNER " We thoroughly enjoyed the Cash Builder and it has really helped build Moli's confidence for jumping. Fingers crossed there will be more show jumping in the future." Sophie Ison - Unaff Cash Builder Series - WINNER " Thank you for putting on this series, it was great fun and a super competition." Kristine Hutchinson - Unaff Cash Builder Series - WINNER " What a wonderful event it was and I will be looking forward to future events!" Katie Smith - Unaff Cash Builder Series - WINNER " Thank you for such a fabulous show, was absolutely brilliant and I hope there are many more!" Dawn Ogilvie-Wilson and Archie Wilson - Quest & Unaffiliated Dressage " I just wanted to pop an email through to you to say a big thank you to all involved in the Dressage Competition yesterday. My son Archie had unfortunately learnt the wrong test for the first class.......this could have turned out to be a horrible experience for him but instead we felt both supported and encouraged by your wonderful staff. Huge thanks must go to your steward & caller Sophie who was so very kind and thoughtful to Archie and myself, and she completely turned the situation around for us. Also Heather in the office was great with her help and support too. Please could you pass on my thanks to Carol Brady and also the dressage writer (I didn't get her name unfortunately) - they were so understanding and supportive when we all realised Archie was riding an incorrect test, and it was extremely kind of them to let him have sometime to learn the correct test and to accept him back into the arena to have another go, something which they didn't have to do but for which I'm extremely grateful! It was so lovely too that the Judge and Writer both took sometime to speak with me after his test. It was Archie's first ever dressage competition and also the first ever show for the horse too. What could have been a bad experience actually turned out to be a very nice experience indeed thanks to your kind and supportive venue. We shall definitely be back!" Teresa Perez - Regular Competitor " Our first visit to Newbold Verdon today for Arena Eventing and we had a great day. Really well organised, plenty of parking space, great facilities, friendly and helpful collecting ring staff, beautifully designed course and well maintained surfaces. Also very reasonable and good value entry fees. Really looking forward to our next visit." Amanda McGinnigle - Emile Faurie Clinic " Thank you for hosting the clinic with Emile today, was so great to have a session in a dressage environment with the arena set out with such an elite dressage trainer. So much gained with interactive input and invaluable coaching with attention to detail and compassion of how to get the best out of horse and rider, fantastic day!" Kate De Fraja - Emile Faurie Clinic " Dante and I had an amazing lesson with Emile, I wasn't sure what to expect and I was a little apprehensive (dressage not being our strongest discipline) but Emile was great. He put me completely at ease and we worked on some very simple but incredibly useful exercises to improve my riding, help us both relax and enabling Dante to become more supple and forward. I would thoroughly recommend him, it was hard work but a very satisfying 45 minutes!" Galloping Granny Beresford - BS Cat 1 " Fabulous first time at this beautiful, well ran, friendly venue! Great, well built course, nice surfaces and well managed by all the show staff. Lovely cafe too! Will definitely be back!" Dani Cox - Dressage Competitor " If you haven't been to Newbold yet, you should - lovely friendly venue!" Stacey Rowlett - Clear Round Show Jumping " We could not fault the place. It was my daughters first time in the environment and the girls in the ring were so supportive." Leanne Little - Tiny Tots Easter Show " We attended the tiny tots event this weekend. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The day was ran so well and organised brilliantly. What a fantastic opportunity for the smalls to be able to enjoy such a wonderful venue. Please arrange more of these." Talisha Davies - Tiny Tots Easter Show " Amazing day and enjoyed by all!!" Gillian Grummit - Arena Eventing Series " Newbold really are a friendly bunch, they support everyone and I've gained so much confidence in doing the arena eventing there and the good luck wishes when you go in the arena it means a lot." Gregg Harrison - Event Photographer " A lovely, bright indoor arena, very friendly staff. " Adelle Lynn - NVEC Livery " Such a wonderful place. The best livery yard I have ever been on. Everyone is lovely and welcoming. Sally and Martin are the nicest yard owners I have ever met. Hannah and the girls are wonderful, hardworking and super understanding of my youngsters difficult moments. Plenty of organised events and amazing clinics, beautiful arenas. 5 stars!"
Sonja Ekkers - Clinic participant " My young horse has never been out before I took him now for his third outing to Newbold Verdon Equestrian Centre first and second time was to Sally's Saturday club. Didn't feel pressured into anything. Sally is friendly and welcoming. The third outing was to a clinic with Emile Faurie. And what a fantastic opportunity to ride with him at a super place. I can't wait to book for my next clinic. All arena's are fantastic maintained. The place looks great. The atmosphere is fantastic. Highly recommend. Well worth traveling 50 minutes for even with these petrol prices" Deborah Green - Regular clinic participant - Emile Faurie Clinic "I don’t suppose that it’s everyday Emile Faurie has the pleasure of teaching a typically quirky Welsh Section D. I also imagine that we may be a slightly different combination of horse and rider than those he has at home – me being in my 60’s and my gorgeous Ashow Taran Bach (Taran) being just 15h! Emile made no judgement regarding either me or my boy, and was kind, respectful and attentive throughout. My regular instructor Fi, and I, have now both had an Emile lesson on my fabulous Taran, and both of us had fun and benefitted hugely from Emile’s knowledge and experience. He spots the smallest things that can make the biggest differences and is committed to understanding my personal goals and ambitions (including teaching Taran to passage). I will be booking a place on his next clinic, as this is an amazing opportunity to benefit from the expertise of such a talented and dedicated dressage master." Gillian Grummit - Regular Show Jumping participant "Another great show well organised and so friendly as always had a great time might not have gone to plan in our second class but didn’t care had a great time they did everything possible for the welfare of horse and rider well done team Newbold" Sarah & Amber Hollingoworth - Regular Show Jumping participant " The best venue and so horse friendly. Lovely big trough, hose pipe to shower and the amazing new shaded warm up. Thank you for a great time and as always the lovely staff." Samantha & Lucy Bainbridge - Regular Show Jumping participant "Thanks for all you hard work this morning you did well and beat the worst of the heat 🙂 Absolutely love coming to you never met such a friendly bunch of people." Michelle & Maisie Presnall - Regular Show Jumping participant "We really enjoyed today thank you very much the staff were fab and it ran so quick and smooth which was good in the heat x" Joanne Wainwright - Regular Dressage Competitor "I had a really great show yesterday, lady on the warm up gate - lovely. So organised, fantastic surfaces, everything made it a great day." Steph Barnard - BD Competitor "Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for making us feel so welcome today, even my non horsey husband felt welcome. We've not been to BD with you before but we'll definitely be back!"
