"I just wanted say how much myself, Emily and her mum enjoyed the morning at the gallops last Saturday. We all really enjoyed seeing the horses in the flesh and seeing first hand how they are looked after. Everyone at the yard seems to really enjoy working there."

"I visited Kim up at Thorndale with some American guests, Dennis and Jody Metter from Chicago: I have been in and around both flat and jump yards in Lambourn and Newmarket for 40 years, and have never seen such an impressive training establishment in jump racing... the calmness and well being of the horses, the charm and efficiency of the staff, especially the senior staff, and syndicate maestro Peter Kerr. For those of you out there thinking of taking the fun, exciting and rewarding plunge into jump racing ownership... look no further than Kim, Peter and the team..."

(Nicky Samengo-Turner)


"I just wanted to say what a wonderful morning we had. Phil hasn’t stopped talking about it and chatting to various friends about how hospitable and welcoming you all were.Our thanks on to Kim and Peter, it is definitely something we would recommend to others."

(Phil & Bethan Rickard)
