“Clio has been at Matt and Lu Selby’s happy yard for 5 years now. Having been described as a troubled horse destined for Auction, Clio arrived from a recommendation for corrective training – her physical and mental condition has been dramatically transformed showing her to be in peak fitness and excellent temperament through the experience and care of Matt and Lu.Clio has been guided and trained as a competent all-rounder and really enjoying life to the full. Both horse and owner are now as content as they have ever been. Thank you so much Matt and Lu. ” Trudy Wilding,  Sutton Valence.

“Matt has helped me with a couple of my horses over the years. I wouldnt hesitate to, and often do recommend Matts services, he is a real ‘horseman’, not only being very talented and sympathetic as a rider and trainer, but has a real understanding of horses and how to bring out the best in them. Matt and Lu are also very knowledgeable and thorough when it comes to looking after your horse whilst in their care. Thanks for all your help so far, I’m sure I’ll be needing your services again soon.” Helen Morley, Smarden.

“I would like to thank you and your staff for looking after and schooling my warmblood Lady, she is a totally different horse from the one i dropped off at your yard 2 months ago –  being relaxed, happy and seems to be completely on my side now!  She is looking fabulous, with a super shine to her coat, and i cannot wait to get out competing with her. Thankyou all so much. ” Sarah, Uckfield.

“Thanks for doing such a great job with Benson, I’ve ridden him most days since he came back and he’s going very well.
We’re keeping up with the hard work in the school, and enjoying well mannered polite hacks, with me definitely in charge, and him waiting for me to tell him when to go faster.
 Can’t thank you enough.  Definitely the best thing I could have done for him this year.
 Planning our competition campaign, starting with dressage and aiming for ODEs towards summertime.
 Both my Instructor and saddler say they’ve not seen him looking so good.
 THANK YOU”     Debbie.
Thankyou all for looking after Henry and for giving him an excellent start to his ridden life. We really appreciate the time and effort you have put in

After some serious soul searching I came to accept that my talented ex racehorse was for me, a challenge too far. To realise his potential and re- start his eventing career he needed to return to basics and most probably a younger rider. I sent him to Matt in January and by April he was placed in BE90 and BE100 with Dulcie who developed a real relationship with Woody. The care, education and attention he recieved was second to none. The support and friendship I received made my difficult decision so much easier. At Sunnyside, the horses are treated as individuals with no quick fixes. The advertising and selling process was thorough and professional. I cannot thank enough Matt and his team for all they have done in preparing Woody for his new home with a young rider. I would not hesitate in recommending Matt and his team to those needing informed help and advice.

I cannot thank Matt and Lu enough for selling me the gorgeous Mr Ross. It’s now three years since I bought him and he has gone from strength to strength. He is everything he was advertised as and more. He really is the perfect allrounder and has turned his hoof to showjumping, dressage, eventing, hacking, beach rides, horsey holidays and sponsored rides. He has taken me from unaffiliated local shows to bringing home rosettes at Trailblazers, Cricklands and Sunshine Tour. We have now starting our affiliated career in British Eventing and British Showjumping, something I never dreamed I would be doing! Matt and Lu’s experience was invaluable in helping me make the right choice in  buying Ross, my first horse, and I know I can really trust their judgement.  They have continued to be a point of contact for advice and support three years down the line and have made buying my first horse a wonderfully successful and pleasurable experience. Thank you for finding me the perfect equine match, he has certainly found a home for life!”
