"What a fabulous day Saturday with our Barry Thomas Clinic . Lovely to see new people and new bonds developing with owners and horses ....looking forward to the next.." • "Just wanted to say thank you so much to Barry and Rhian for coming down last weekend to help me with my horse who had become a nightmare to load on the trailer! It was making going anywhere a real pain as we would always fall out before we even got there! Well, this week he has been on the trailer twice, both times he has walked straight on perfectly without hesitation, and I honestly can't explain what a difference it has made! Everything is now so much calmer and more enjoyable! I am also keeping up all of the ground work I have been shown, and he is respecting me so much more now and seems a lot happier and more chilled out in himself. Thank you for everything!" • "So chuffed with my girl. She was amazing today to clip. Didn't budge an inch. Still have to finish her off tomorrow. So hopefully, she will be well behaved again! Such as good girl, since we went to Barry Thomas camp. Takes everything in her stride now. One happy owner 😄😄😄"

Barry had the great pleasure of supporting Monty Roberts at the recent UK tour of the Monty Roberts Join Up Event at Hartbury.

With a full house of around 1000 eager spectators, Monty delivered his usual spectacular and now world famous Join Up technique with fresh young horses and those with behavioural issues.
