    - Lindsay Pearce

  • "Many thanks to Melissa and co for sorting out my two boys teeth. I could see straight away that they were more comfortable and blues ‘cheeky’ behaviour has stopped altogether, so he will be back to his dressage diva ways next weekend."

  • "Melissa removed my mares tooth in July. She’s like a different mare! So much happier when ridden and eating so much better. Can’t recommend Melissa and her team enough."

    - Claire Baldwin

  • "I would recommend these people to anyone. I was VERY nervous about having my lad done (he can be difficult for strangers to handle) but Melissa and Amy were so nice, confident and professional about it. She even managed to calm me down. Thank you."
