Thank you so so so so much! Jewel is the absolute best horse a horse obsessed man could ask for. She literally just fit right in and assumed best friend position haha. Plus she tolerates my attention seeking photo shoots haha and when I say tolerate I mean she has to have full involvement. My trainer took her to the beach with me as you can see her riding her. She was so impressed she went as far to say she is one of the best horses we have and how beautifully trained up she is.
Once again, you are amazing and freedom equine has more then delivered, you have excelled. Have a good Sunday X

Rani has been a dream horse and everything that you said she was right down to her lifting her leg up when she’s happy. She is so loved and hasn’t put a foot wrong. I ride her and children ride her and she is wonderful. Thank you for doing what you do.

Just HAD to share ~ yesterday I was sitting on the ground crying (over something very trivial but even so I was upset) when I heard the distinct noise of two horses cantering from the other side of the house. I didn’t even look up but next felt a gentle nudge. I look up to the warm soft nose of Sebastian who then reached out to me another two times. Mood gone, he went off to graze and I continued with my frustrating task. Love💞 🐴.

Thanks so much for your care and support Phoebe....She has been a nice quiet riding horse and is very easy to handle, she is being sold due to no fault of her own...


I would just like to say that you do a wonderful job with the horses, they are a pleasure to have and they are very fortunate to have you select them as part of your retraining program.


Keep up your great work

Some pics of Sebastian my adoring beautifully natured big boy from over the years... 


Jayne is 2 1/2 here and just loves visiting Auntie Cazz and her horses. Sebastian being her personal choice to ride.

The lead is for Tammys sense of security. They went walking around a busy neighbourhood with lots of noises and traffic.

Tammy has Down syndrome and is easily spooked.

I would recommend your horses any day.

26 / 01 / 2020



Hi Phoebe, I just wanted to give you an update on Milky. He is such a sweet and quite boy and we absolutely love him. He has settled in well and the only time he exerts too much energy is when it comes to his belly 😂. I love riding him with his no fuss attitude to most things. He has also been a huge help in getting my daughter to build her confidence back one ride at a time. He is so patient with her and just plods along working to help her recover from some bad experiences she had.
Thanks so much for our boy he has definitely stollen our hearts.

Princess update Matt Ryan Cross Country Clinic. She was amazing

She is amazing, everyone loves her and says she has amazing potential.

She is a very special girl, third in her first ever dressage test and first in her first ever show jumping event. So willing.


16 / 01 / 2020



Hi Phoebe...She arrived today finally and she was very chilled and easy going.

She was bathed of which she did not seem to mind, then she had a nice clean mesh rug on and put in the paddock next door to the shetland and my Arab.  You were right she loves cuddles and amazing temperament...she was following me around the paddock. PS she has also had a fly veil put on of which she didn't mind either.  The transport guy said she was the quietest horse all week.

It is such a long trip poor girl, but I told her that she is safe now and will have a great home.

...plenty of cuddles.

I will keep you updated and thanks again for all your help.

07 / 12 / 2019



Yes, this is the sort of relationship with a horse I want. It reminds me of a video I saw recently that spoke of the hours that girls will spend with their ponies or horses just hanging out. Chatting away, grooming them. The girls, without a lot of hangups, loving and trusting their horses and the horse giving that in return so that together they could do amazing feats :)

Hi Phoebe,

 I just wanted to let you know we love Danny Boy, he is gorgeous! The girls are beside themselves and we are dutifully going through the settling in steps with him. We have also been using them for another horse who arrived a week before Danny Boy with great success. Dale from NQ Transport was great as well.


I am particularly enjoying all the information you are sending, it’s a great refresher for me as its been many years since I left home and the horses we grew up with and very different circumstances. Your approach makes so much sense, I love it!... 

 Many thanks and have a lovely day.

 Kind regards, Susie

I wanna give a huge thankyou to @freedomequitation for doing what they do and training this boy up so well, he was getting annoyed with the flies so i put a fly rug on him, without anyone holding his head and he simply stood there and let me. Hes been calm all afternoon and even came up to me when i called him. He is truly incredible for a 6yo and im extremely happy to have him!

Kiki & Ebony 


Hi Phoebe...

We were told to evacuate on Friday afternoon, luckily we had a truck to us within 30 mins & could move all of mine together,

It was hot smoke filled gusty winds & Guess who lead them all onto the truck, our little Venus !!

The others are all quiet too, so they happily followed her on, especially Jet , as he is in love with her now.

I knew she was used to being in a truck, so she went in first easily, & the rest followed.

They were all taken in by a lovely family over in Guanaba, & were able to be together, little Venus also got to meet up and run with some

Belted Galloway cattle, which she has totally enjoyed bossing around & playing with.

She has been through quite a bit in her few short weeks with us, Just getting settled in , then having to be quickly asked to get on a truck,

in smokey stressful conditions, & go to a new place again, meet up with cattle, & new environment. But seems to have taken it all in her stride.

She is with her new forever family , so I am sure that helped her.

They are all coming home today, I can’t wait to have them all home safe n sound & to be all settled into their normal routine again. I am sure

they will be too.

Much Luv,

Kiki & Ebony, Lilly, and our horsey family. xx

Kiki & Ebony 


HI Phoebe,

Thanks so much for your thoughtful message. Yes the fires have been all over us here. Wednesday night nearly lost the house but the

firebrigade were amazing and we are all still here. Safe n Sound.

Our little Venus has handled everything so well for such a young little 4yo., we have had everything from heaps of firetrucks racing through,

with red/ blue flashing lights, sirens going, Helicopters above and dropping water, to the open raging fire within meters of them.

And Phoebe she is such a little clown, today I had the sprinkler on down in their paddock, her other 4 horse family didn't go near it, but Venus

was happily playing by herself . right under the full spray, turning her butt to it, spraying her face, her body, she loved it, she was in absolute

heaven playing for ages in it, & then decided to have a yummy roll to complete her playtime.

She is so inquisitive, seems so comfy in and around us, loves my dogs & puts her head right in the car to say hi to everyone. Such an innocent playful little girl, & she sooooo loves her feed, she has the biggest feed and finishes the fastest.

Loving getting to know her, & she us, she always walks up to me when I walk into any paddock she is in, possibly looking for her treats.

Thanks again for your message, hope you are all okay.

Much Luv Kiki , Ebony, Lilly , Venus & all the rest of furry family.

Kiki & Ebony 



 Hi Phoebe, Our little Goddess of Love Venus has settled in really beautifully.

We kept her in her own safe post and rail paddock for the first 3 days, where she and my other 4 horses could talk, sniff & get to know each


She is such a little baby girl, Ebony and Venus made an instant connection , Ebs just stayed in the paddock with Venus when she first arrived and sat close but also gave Venus her space, Venus ended up coming into EBs, head bowed and taking the treats Ebony had for her,

Venus went through the pecking order and is now totally calm, has chosen the stable she likes to be in for her dinner time, which is between my two geldings, She goes in there and has her dinner and her night rugs on just as if she had been doing this for years, she feels very safe when she is with her mates.

She is eating really well, & I love how she licks her feed bucket clean , she is so funny, has to make sure it is completely gone.

Venus is also very brave, as she has met our dogs, who are all very horse friendly, they are Shepards & very soft natured;, at first she looked and then walked up to my boy Sakima and sniffed him, we told her what a brave girl she was.

then she had our resident Peacock come up near her and opened his big beautiful tail up, she looked at him but didn't even take a step away.

She has been leading my geldings around the paddock, trotting and lovely soft canters, she leads & they follow her, I think the boys are infatuated with her, it nearly looks like she is teaching them how to do circles, they are all so calm and at peace with each other.

Phoebe, Venus is so lovely to be around, feeding, rugging, picking feet up etc. She has such a soft dreamy eye, & she is so elegant, she floats when she moves.

Ebony hasn't ridden her yet, she is spending time with her and taking her for little Adventure walks...

Thank you so much

Ebony & Kiki & Venus sends her love back to you. ❤️🦄💕🦄

Hi Phoebe,

Since I have stopped lunging my mares which were both taken through a natural horsemanship program I have noticed they are more settled in everything I do on lead. I was encouraged to push them around when they were disengaged and moving....which led to some dizzy moments. Looking forward to more training forward aides. Cheers Kim

(Kim & 'Cigar')

  Thanks guys for lots of useful information regarding how to build a strong safe relationship with your horse. Ciggie and I have worked through each daily lesson.....we?ve had some really good days and some not so good days days.....I?ve had time to reflect and each new lesson builds on the last.

There are so many opinions out there about how you should educate your horse. Very few talk about true freedom for the horse to choose. I have worked hard to follow your training method with both Ciggie and my 2 mares.

When my farrier commented on how chilled Ciggie was this time I was super happy. My goal for this session was to allow Ciggie to control his own behaviour. His lead was loose and I simply rested my hand on his neck. I didn?t once have to ask him to behave. The farrier asked him gently and Ciggie gave his permission straight away. Its was great to see what a well behaved horse he is when he?s happy. So excited about what we are going to be able to do together in the future. Kind regards Kim.

Just wanted to share with you a picture of the Beautiful Magical Bonza Loving his Equisage, before we have a Fabulous Ride Toghether. 😀🐎😍

I will have to try and get someone to take pictures of us riding Toghether.

I have tried to take happy snaps whilst on him. All I seem to get is a picture of his Beautiful Ears.

...Hugs to you from Bonza. 😀😀

Hi Phoebe, Yoshi has arrived and is very settled already.. Just happily eating grass and looking around. Other horses are very excited about her arrival but she is not phased in the slightest. 😁 😍
Very friendly too. 😍
New pyjamas. 😁




19 / 06 / 2019



Yaee....look whose a North Queenslander! Shes here x"


She's had hugs n kisses. Jase loves her... Shes settled in with my sisters 2.

She has 2 x gelding admirers. Omg they love her! New rug n bug buster. She's been so incredibly placid.

...shes ruling these boys. Too much spunk. They are overcome with her. I have never seen anything quite like it

Riley my sisters horse wouldn't eat his tea. He normally eats the lot won't leave his food. He then follows her everywhere stops and looks around like a shepherd protecting its precious stock.

Yes shes ruling peace in the paddock. Cruising around. Not really wanting dinner. But picking on grass and i think happy to be free off the truck🙌🙌 Thankyou!

Hello Phoebe

I just wanted to let you know that we both had our first little ride Toghether today.

We had a little walk and trot around on the arena, then sauntered around the Boy's paddock and back to the wash-tie up area. For some more yummies and another brush.

He has dropped alot of weight, from his travels to Majorca.. 

I will definitely, carefully and gradually put it back on.

WOW What An amazing Boy..

So quite and so so patient with me.. No lunging just walked out to the arena as if he had been there all his life.

A true beautiful magical soul.

Thank-you for such a Wonderful Loving Horse Xoxo

Thought I’d update you that Sandi had his first outing today. We went to a clinic that my trainer held and we loaded him up early and he stood in the float patiently munching on his hay for an 1hr and a half... trainer couldn’t help but tell everyone that was watching... how if we do things right by him together we could have the potential to represent QLD one day 😊💓my heart sung hearing that...

...Also he’s such a cutie. My best friends horse and him met for the first time today and while we had lunch waiting for our next lesson we put them in the stall side by side and sandi was sharing his lucerne with him 😂

I still can’t thank u enough for such a beautiful boy 💓🥰

(Sarimanok / Sandi)

Ahaha thought U might appreciate this funny video of sandi being a goofball today while I was chilling with the horses 😂
Hahah is such a goof and I was so worried he would choke on it so I kept rousing at him and he would drop it and turn ad look at me as if to say “ oops I saw that” and I took it off him cause he was gonna make a mess then he followed after me as if to say “ but Mum I was playing”




07 / 04 / 2019



...Learning more and more in every training session. He’s learning to leg yield and canter balanced I really think he enjoys training because of the way he flicks his tail when I ask him to do something.

Was one of the easiest and best horse purchases we have done.
We would highly recommend buying from these guys.

Splash turned up looking great...

I’m really happy with Splash - he is just fantastic and a real gentleman. He will be doing dressage and some jumping. He has been over some jumps now and loved it. Just doing different things to mix it up for him. I ride him and I’m green - and then my sister in law rides him (so he has faith in good riding again 🤣🤣) and he just goes to her level. ...


Splash is very chilled.

#sirsplash had his first ridden outing this morning at Fred’s Pass. He handled it all like a pro 😊🦄. Such a sweet boy 👏👏


He loved it. Was so happy with him. He is a good boy

Splash is getting out and about and is loving it.

Prince is settling in nicely and found a friend in the paddock. He is such a placid boy and loves the kids, he is such a sticky beak and loves walking around us when we are doing paddock work. I will be jumping on him for a ride this week, just wanted to settle him in and build a bond.

During feeds my 4 yr old daughter sits on him and he is not bothered at all.




06 / 03 / 2019



Some very interesting points, a number I hadn’t heard before but they make sense. Also that photo is lovely ❤️

'Rosie has been renamed Melody, because she matches Harmony 🤷🏽‍♀️

She’s coming along beautifully and is the sweetest girl. She’s so quiet I’ve been using her to lead my son around on his Shetland, she’s very much a part of our family taking all the kids for rides and teaching my non horsey husband some horsemanship. 

I’ve taken her to a few clinics and she’s taken the new environments and indoor arena all in her stride. She’s a real beauty and so eye catching under saddle'.

Hi Phoebe,

Just wanted to let you know Prince arrived this morning. He is settling in fine, the mares annoy him a little😁 but he is sweet natured. He walked up to my wife and daughter this afternoon for pats and a brush.






19 / 02 / 2019



He is going really well, loves being brushed. I normally brush him when he's eating and yesterday my phone rang so I stepped away and after a few minutes he came up and was muzzling my hand that had the brush and just stood there for 10mins having his face brushed until I was off the phone 😂




13 / 02 / 2019



Just letting you know Chief arrived safe and sound and is all settled in 😊 He had a big drink and got stuck into his lucern. In love with him already 😍 ...



All tucked up in his pjs having dinner ❤️

(Lady Marmalade)

Lady Marmalade says hi.

Lady is an amazing horse and works to any riders level. When Noah (pictured) rides her she drops her energy right down and is very careful. When I get on her she picks it right up and when the expert gets on her (the wife) Lady goes into beast mode. I've learnt so much about horses in the last 12 months and I think OTTB's are a perfect beginners horse.

 We just love her so much. She always comes trotting up to us when we see her. We had her at Beechmont spelling whilst we were overseas in December she just loved seeing us when we came home.

(San Domingo)

He’s doing and looking great. So here’s a pic of him from atm after trying on his new boots I bought him for Christmas (so funny to watch him adjust to it)😂...And Another from riding him last year...and a video of him I put together showing him racing, to now which is from November-1st December as that’s the last time I filmed riding him💓


Can’t thank you enough for such awesome horse. There’s not a day that I don’t love working with him and get off from riding him with a smile 💓💓💓



16 / 01 / 2019



I went for my first proper ride in about 4 months with my lovely girl. Omg, she was such a sweetheart, and didn't put a foot wrong. There was a mower driving around and a dog running around everywhere and a man whipper snipping. She was not at all fazed, just cruised about, and had a look around. Such a sweetheart. She kept looking around to me and gave me a look like; have I been doing well? Just so cute!
I was so amazed at how she just took as if she had been in work everyday for a year. She is just so gorgeous. 😍 



16 / 01 / 2019



Thank you, I am so happy with the progress she has made. X...well we have made. She has given me so much confidence... Our big baby boo! X...Love her heaps. X

(Harmony, Rosie, Bubbles & Anzus)

They are so happy. Grazing down the back in their 20 acre spelling paddock. They come galloping down when I call them for feed time, straight into their yards. Stand quietly and eat while I ride, groom and waste my time fussing over them, then back out all together again 😊




12 / 01 / 2019



Phoebe - update. Bundy and Jess took their first ride together today.. Jess was the passenger whilst Bundy munched down on some tasty chaff.He didn't put a foot wrong when saddling up.She is looking forward to working out together.




12 / 01 / 2019



Update on Banjo:
Yesterday was my third lesson on banjo and
again he didn't put a foot wrong.
I had a chiro out to him the other day and found his back was out in two places, which I'm guessing is why he was a little on the slow side.
My first two lessons he was just cruzing on slow mode and after his back was done i had my third lesson, he was forward and more willing.
i actually rode with my daughter for 2 hours and he was still going strong.
He was still well behaved and has no dirt at all.
He has really taken to me and is happy to follow me around and loves cuddles.
My 7 year old also had a ride yesterday and can catch him in the paddock on her own.
She even put him onto the float by herself.
He is the confident booster i have been looking for.
I have never taken to a horse so quickly, he is just beautiful.
Thank you for finding me my forever man! 




06 / 01 / 2019



Hi Phoebe,

Just wanted to give you an update on Chanelle, who my daughter ended up calling Rebel 😊

She is working out fantastic which I am so grateful.

Here is a small video of her riding her for the first time and a couple of photos I have of me jumping her.

Thanks again we love her!

☺️...She isn’t fazed by anything, she took to jumping with ease which is fantastic because I do Eventing as my discipline and my daughter wants to do the same, so I’m super happy she enjoys it and is so trainable!




06 / 01 / 2019



Dear Phoebe
Strawberries has been so sweet. She has been so cuddly and has really taken to eating apples. Her coat is looking so gorgeous and shiny. I am so happy with her and how she is coming along. She is such a sweetheart, and is loving a scratch on her wither. Her lip will bobble up and down. 😂😂
She has got very affectionate and every day trusting us a bit more...




04 / 01 / 2019



Bundy is certainly kind for our 12yr old to handle. Here is the halter fitting. Jess loves chatting to him as he settles in.

Hi Phoebe just wanted to give you an update on Smokey. We are taking it slowly with him and doing the steps that you have sent. The videos are the second ride our daughter Kaylah has had on him. 

What can I say, words cannot describe how gorgeous and quiet this boy is. They have connected so well together and Kaylah and Smokey are building a beautiful bond as well.

There is some exciting times to come with these two, we are so great full that you trusted us with him, he is a credit to you guys . Thank you so much 😊 🤗😊 ...Thank you so, so much, we are so very happy 😘😘😘"




15 / 12 / 2018



Enjoying going through your course Phoebe and surprised at how many things in it I had discovered on my own years ago when, after a big accident, had to look at a safer way and recovering my confidence took me to researching and trying things to get amazing results. Like you say they just want to please if they know how. I've been able to hop on any of my horses that haven't been ridden for 6/12 months bareback without any lungeing etc. I'm still learning and discovering things every day, 54 now.  Sounds like we have gone down a similar path of discovery...  

Thank you. Sonya

(Bubbles & Rosie) 

Hi Phoebe, just wanted to let you know the girls arrived safely yesterday and they are so beautiful and sweet natured.

14 years I’ve worked in the industry and handled so many different horses in that time. NEVER have I had a horse, let alone 2, step off a truck in new surroundings and not bat an eyelid at anything. It’s a real credit to their temperament and the work you’ve done.

They have both been wormed, groomed and rugged without a fuss. Farrier is coming for them tomorrow. They will spend the next few days eating and settling into their new home. So far Im over the moon and already in love with them both. I can’t thank you enough, the service you have provided has been amazingly professional and made this process so easy.




12 / 12 / 2018



LOVE all your modules! And I love all the encouragement, at the last place I was riding I got told to not stop and pat the horse for doing a great turn when turning on the forehand because it breaks the momentum! I still did though haha. Looking forward to more of the courses :)




12 / 12 / 2018



Thanks Phoebe, love the course! It's taken some time to remember and grasp the concept although it is simple and natural and right, it's getting rid of the old habits that take the time. But everything that you've said to do has worked on my horse and we are both building lots more confidence.  He's also showing a lot more personality too which is nice ...

Thanks for a great course.




11 / 12 / 2018



Loving your material, thank you.




11 / 12 / 2018



...I already trust Dolly SO much. My family has fallen in LOVE with her, so it is almost not my horse anymore but OURS haha.
Dolly has a forever home with us :) I'll attach a picture of my brother with her, love at first sight if I've ever seen it!
Thanks again and for the tell on the leaves, good to know!!
Anneliese xxxxx







She’s still beautiful and shiny but she just had a big roll in the dirt haha. Thought you might like an updated pic I forgot to send one through with the review xx ...I got her lifting her leg up it’s sooooooo cute 💜💜




09 / 12 / 2018



Hello Phoebe!
Strawbs has been so sweet and really cute lately. So cuddly and she loves to rest her head on your shoulder or try and nibble my hair! She is so smart she has learnt all her exercises off by heart so when she sees a carrot she will straight away bend her head around to her shoulder it's so cute. Also with a point to her shoulder she will do it automatically! I love her to bits 🥰😍
She has got so much more calm and it feels like our connection is getting better. She also knows our car so anytime we drive up the driveway she will come trotting over with her ears forward and a little whinny!! So cuteeee!
She's getting so much love, and I couldn't be more happy
Thank you again 💋💖
These are some photos of her yesterday.







Hi Phoebe
Thought I would give you an update on Cajun. What an absolute sweetheart. Like other posts I have read she was even more beautiful in real life than the photos. She made my other boy look like a brumby because she is so regal looking!! She has settled in so well, is such a gentle giant and so sweet and well behaved. I do all of her brushing etc with no halters or leads and she just stands there. If she goes to move I just say “whoa” and she stops. She does lift her leg up when she loves what she is eating like you said and it is very endearing. My first couple of rides had to be bareback because I only had 1 girth and she is huge and it didn’t fit and I had to order one to fit her haha. Even bareback she was a complete angel. She had bonded so well with Spirit her paddock companion that I was concerned about riding her as I thought they would be an issue but she just concentrates on the ride and me. Everyone that has met her loves her and comments on how sweet and gentle she is. Thank you xx 




07 / 12 / 2018



Hi Phoebe,

Thought I would give you a small update on the early stage of Dolly :)

Wow, when I saw her get off the truck I couldn't believe she was more beautiful that she was in her pictures! She was very keen to get a look around as I walked her to her paddock. I left her to settle for a bit and when I return later in the day she had her ears forward and looking like she recognized the car :) I didn't think on the first day she would be so affectionate, but I went into her paddock to see her and walked up with a treat (that she didn't want haha) and we had some LOVELY pats. I even played the grass game with her briefly without meaning to! I said "let me get you some grass" and turned around after picking some to find my new friend right by me waiting!

Thank you for such a stunning horse and for such an informative and enjoyable set of courses so far, not to mention taking ALL of my many questions.

Speaking of I did want to check she is fine barefoot, or if she goes better with shoes on :)

Thanks again!




05 / 12 / 2018



Good afternoon Phoebe, we have just picked up Smokey and he is in his paddock settling in having a feed. He is just gorgeous and Kaylah loves him already, can’t wipe the smile from her face. Thank you so much for him, we will stay in touch xx


...Phoebe Norling thank you for letting him join our family xx 

...he’s very easy to love

I love hearing about the talking to and with horses, because I have always had conversations with riding school horses and even thanking them after a ride even when nobody else is talking to them haha Makes me feel a lot more confident in chatting with my equine friends!

So well trained, a beautiful pleasure riding horse, in the states🇺🇸 this horse is definitely a $10,000 purchase, great job, 🍀 Phoebe , what a steal with this I would call “ Bullet Proof”




22 / 07 / 2018


Hi Phoebe, I’m so slack on updateing you I feel so bad. I’ve been busy with school work and when I’m not busy with school work I’m playing or riding SanDi and my other horse. SanDi is doing very good he is so Cuddly sometimes he will come over and nudge me for a cuddle and then he will place his head in my arms and I can just stand there for ever with my head on his he’s so cute... I have led him over jumps and he gets so proud of himself when he clears it then he will turn and look at me seeking for approval and I will tell him “good boy” “aren’t you a clever boy”and give him a massive hug. Yesterday I rode him bareback and he listened to me non stop I had his undivided attention. I decided I would try and stop him by using my body language (no rein) by sitting deep and putting my legs further forward and keeping my heels down and he stopped immediately. I put together a video of our time together so far I hope u like it 😊



21 / 07 / 2018


I can’t explain the love I have for this boy 💙 I never thought I’d be able to do this with a horse ever.. the amount of trust I have for this boy is the best feeling! ❤️ I love you Valentino.




21 / 07 / 2018


I want people to see that what you say about all your gorgeous horses is true and I have actually been able to achieve everything that I was promised xxx ❤️❤️❤️









18 / 07 / 2018


Oh my god phoebes Val is doing so well! I'm sorry I haven't updated you in a while! We are going so well with the settling program! It's gotten to the point where he looks at me like "come on let's go for a ride!" It's so cute! He's got that much patience for me you wouldn't think he was only 5! I got on him bareback this arvo and we just went for a little walk around the yard 🙂 he was so good he just walked around so calm letting me lay on him and cuddle him! We do so much together and I feel like our bond gets stronger and stronger every time I'm with him 💙💙💙Tameka's little girls sat on him this afternoon and I didn't even have to hold him he just stood there eating grass and being such a good boy! After our lovely afternoon I gave him a carrot lollypop! (A carrot dipped in molasses) The whole time he was eating it I kept saying to him "Your other mummy phoebe would be so cranky at me if she knew I was giving you so much sugar" 😂 I can't believe I've got such a good boy I love him so much! Thank you so much phoebes!



18 / 07 / 2018

04 / 07 / 2018


Now Phoebe I have a bone to pick with you...

You simply must stop finding us these wonderful horses before we end up with a full herd of them!

Princess, as you know, settled in immediately. She is kind hearted, gentle and loves a good cuddle and a schmacking kiss right on her face. Never in all my years of knowing horses of a wide variety, have I met one so calm, so confident, so exactly as described by you.

We did buy her for our daughter, who made an instant ♥️ connection. However my husband (the horse newbie) has taken a real shine to our easy going, unflappably quiet girl. And it’s mutual 😍

Princess doesn’t just have a beautiful temperament. She is smart as the day is long my friend.

My crew live in a paddock just outside our windows. We can see them from most parts of the house. Husband is in sales and talks on the phone, in rapid, unintelligible work speak, near constantly 🙄

I’m currently in a knee brace so he gladly volunteered to fill the hay nets for our little herd. Good man, that one is.

Just in case there was any trouble. Like for example the ponies ganging up on an obvious rookie, I watched keenly through the glass. Picture James Stewart in Rear Window 👀🧐🔭

Hubby is yakking his head off on the phone but Princess thinks he’s talking to her. I watch her ears swiveling around and her face change expression by the millisecond as she tries earnestly to decipher his version of an utterly butchered English language. I was near pissing myself imagining the horse conversations happening parallel to his work call.

Spud doesn’t care about anyone but Spud. Cosmo is deathly afraid of strong wind. Seeing it through his eyes there are apparently demonic bogeymen in each gust. 😈 He was of no assistance either.

In his defense, several large tree branches have come down in storms so he probably has valid reason to be scared of the wind 💨 😱😂

So then it was up to Our Princess to attempt a human to horse translation from this clearly raving madman.

As she looked keenly from this frantically speaking, loud mouthed human to her equine buddies, I was doubled over in hysterics. As much as one can be wearing a knee brace anyway...

By the time he was done with the hay, Princess had seemingly achieved the impossible. Correctly understood my husbands “work speak.” Something I am still incapable of after many long years together. Smart girl she is 😊

Though there was one point where I swear she turned to Adam and said “wait, was that sales pitch or sales meeting?!” Like Mister Ed to Wilbur.

Neither Spud nor Cosmo gave a tiny rats ass what he was saying. But Princess is so into her people, she thinks we are always talking to her regardless so she ALWAYS listens. Just in case.

We love her to bits. She is simply perfect.

Thank you Phoebe. ♥️




03 / 07 / 2018


Oh my frigging god I think my heart is going to explode! Phoebes you could not have given me a more perfect boy ❤️❤️❤️❤️check this out! He's so beautiful and he just could not get anymore chilled! I'm that annoying to him I just cuddle him non stop and my friends little girls just love him and always say "he's my beautiful tino" and my ovaries just burst! He's so good with everything and he's sooo gentle 💗I just love him to bits ❤️I owe you the world for bringing him into my life 💙💙💙

Phoebe Trindall-Norling you are a master at matching the right horse to the right person. Cannot thank you enough for finding me not just one, but two wonderful horses. Princess can’t get enough love. And thank goodness as there are so many of us to love her!!




22 / 06 / 2018 


Hey Phoebes and Des! Just another update on my big boofhead Valentino! 💙 he’s healthy and putting on a lot of weight! I had the vet come out and meet him and just check him out and she fell Inlove with him! Who couldn’t fall Inlove with him! He’s perfect! I have been taking him for walks almost every day this week and he’s just so curious and cute he just wants to keep walking! People give us strange looks like “you know you’re walking a horse not a dog right?” 😂 he’s so good and so well behaved, I have never seen a horse be so calm when cars and trucks drive past! It’s only a 50 area but still he just doesn’t have a care in the world when we go for walks! He is honestly my best buddy and nothing makes me happier than getting to his paddock and seeing him canter up to me with his big rocking horse canter! He stops just in front of me and then puts his head and neck down for a scratch! He’s so beautiful and I just love coming home to him ❤️





 21 / 06 / 2018

Oh Phoebe, I knew you wouldn’t disappoint! 

Princess arrived today, and Cosmo is in heaven. They bonded immediately and Cosmo even stepped aside to give Princess the best hay access. THAT NEVER HAPPENS!! 😂

It took only a few hours for her to assess me and decide I’m worth her time. We have had cuddles already that she initiated. So affectionate. She’s an absolute delight. Happy for me to rug her up for the cold Melbourne nights and is now enjoying her dinner with her best new friend. Princess has met the extended family. That being our chicken flock and three big goofy dogs. All have got along famously and Princess has been welcomed into our menagerie with loving arms.

Thank you once again. You are a huge asset to the horse community and for the second time have given us our perfect horse. So much love for what you do and what you stand for.





18 / 06 / 2018


I just love him so much! When you had him did his socks just make you weak at the knees because that's what he does to me he's that cute! ...he always wants to go further and further when I take him out of the paddock...




18 / 06 / 2018


Hey phoebes! Just thought I'd update you again! My beautiful boy is doing so well 🙂 he's such a character! We are onto our second walk out of the paddock now and he loves it! He's like a dog lol he loves to explore and look at things and he definitely is NOT shy about anything! If it's something he's not sure about he will almost always go straight up to it and check it out! He's so funny when it's feed time. He will stand there and eat and I'll sit next to him when he has a mouthful he will put him head into my lap for a pat then go back to stuffing his face 😂 he's such a character! So to sum up! He's beautiful and I love him to bits! Everyone that meets him falls Inlove with him! ❤️❤️❤️ hes the best boy ever!




14 / 06 / 2018


Diva is such a beautiful horse - we just love her :) She loves attention, follows us around and rubs her nose up and down our backs. Falls asleep when we rub both her cheeks. 

She is adorable.




12 / 06 / 2018



I can’t explain how you make me feel 💙You have changed my life big boy 💙#Valentino




11 / 06 / 2018


Hi Pheobe, I thought I would update u on SanDomingo aka Sandi since it’s felt like forever since I last updated you. He’s doing great I taught him hugs which is super cute cause he puts his neck around my waist and then rubs my back with his head. I was gonna teach him kisses but somehow he already kinda knows how. He’s full of character he stand behind me whilst I make up his food and sometimes pulls the bucket out from underneath me. But he’s such a goofball sometimes he sneezes and he gives himself a fright and then does this hop skip and a jump 😂He is everything we asked for and you told us he would be. He is magnificent. I love him to the moon and back. Thank you both so very much xx😊💙




08 / 06 / 2018


Hey Guys! Major news/update on Valentino and I! Spent all lunch time with him and I did the usual greeting as in stuck my nose out to his nose and he sniffed me as per usual but then I reached around and scratched his neck and he then pulled me into his chest and started cuddling and rubbing his head on me!!!!!!!!! I just love him more and more everyday!!!!!!!! Omg I'm so happy!!!




08 / 06 / 2018



My Valentino 💙 aren’t I just the luckiest girl in the world!!!! Safe to say I am head over heels for this beautiful boy!

"Morning Phoebe & Des! I’m such a good boy and spent all morning cuddling my new mummy, I think she is obsessed with me she is always cuddling and kissing me! I liked my nice warm rug last night and had a yummy breakfast of carrots and lucerine! I think I’m starting to like my new home, I’m already the boss of the other horses! Thank you for finding me this home! I think I’m going to love it Xxxxxxx
Lots of cuddles and love
Valentino & Bronte"





05 / 06 / 2018




thank you so much I’m crying





30 / 05 / 2018



Where do I even start. Phoebe and Des are amazing people and have gone above and beyond to make sure I get the most perfect horse to suit me!

Phoebe sent me a list of horses available at the time and suggested that one of them would suit me especially well!

From then on Phoebe and Des were so supportive in helping me get ready for my boy Valentino to arrive!

I have been non stop asking questions about feed, gear, riding and more!

Phoebe has been so so helpful and answered ALL of my questions and even saved me money by telling me that some things I was going to get were a waste of money and not necessary.

Des has been awesome! He has been sending me statements and invoices letting me know where I am up to and have sorted out a payment plan for my beautiful boy!

I am so so so excited to meet my boy in 5 days and I have no doubt that Phoebe will help me through the settling in process and with any future help I may need!

I cannot recommend RBEI enough! I will not be buying horses from anywhere else!

I am grateful beyond words for everything they have done for me!

Thank you Phoebe and Des!!!!!!!

Cosmo is a beautiful soul. Our favorite thing to do is chill in the paddock together. I pull out the best bits of hay from the net to hand feed him. I sing silly songs I make up as I scratch all the bits (like inside his ears?! He’s a weirdo!) that he offers up to my nails. When he’s in a really good mood, I get snuffly kisses on my head and cuddles when he rests his head on me, and I rest mine on his. Sometimes we just stand forehead to forehead breathing together. Horse breath is my all time favorite smell... 




28 / 05 / 2018


Richie .... relaxed happy & loving ..... look at his blue circle - the big smoocher ❤️🐎😂

I give up expecting any work out of these two, they just want to snuggle and stare into each other’s eyes! 🤣🙈✨

We bought Quincy and he has turned out to be a very lovely boy with great potential. My wife loves him very much and he bonded with my boy scout very easy, they are now best buds. so thank you for helping with that.

I went to feed SanDomingo and my mare Painty and they were full of mischief. my mum and I drove into the paddock on the 4x4 and they stood their like statues in front of us so we couldn’t drive anywhere! 😂 I finally asked them kindly to move out of the way he then raced us to the feed shed ( he didn’t beat my 21yr old mare with arthritis ;) he then waited for his feed at the shed whilst I was putting a rug on my mare (thank god he was distracted cause otherwise he sits there rubbing his head on me pushing me into my mare while I’m trying to put the rug on; he’s such a smoocher ) I then put the feed in front of them and then did his rug. We took a few pics of how snug they looked and then headed to the gate just as I closed the gate my mare had finished her feed and was walking towards his feed. Me waiting to see what his reaction would be stopped and stood there watching he then lifted his head and let my mare take a bite of his food,vice versa. He’s such a gentlemen😊 hehe

Here’s a video of Noah, 8 years old riding Lady. I’ve had to eat my words today, I’ve been saying for a long time that children should never be put on ex race horses but as it’s clearly shown on the video this horse is bombproof. She’s honestly never put a foot wrong.

Hi Phoebe, I have subscribed to your course...Looking forward to starting the training. Felix is going well... He had 11 weeks off over summer as we had a terrible storm with a lighting bolt striking our power transformer right in Felix's view. It shook the ground and the noise was deafening. Poor Felix was in the round yard at the time and galloped around and hit his leg on a rail so it swelled up. He wasn't lame but as it was hot weather I gave him a break. Best thing I could have done as he really filled out beautifully. After all that time off, I rode him twice and then took him to my riding club on a very windy day when all the horses were on edge. He was perfect and he had only been to riding club twice before, months ago, and it is held by the race track! He knew the track was there but was quite happy to take it easy in his new career. Every now and again he plays racehorses in his paddock by going to the most distant corner and then coming back at finishing line speed. It is both frightening and exhilarating to watch. I think he does it to just blow a few cobwebs out as most of the time he moves around at very docile walk. Even after a good gallop he is most composed. I can almost hear him saying 'ahh that feels better!

He is a gem and very much loved

Hi Phoebe, update on my beautiful girl Daisy. I think I have lost her to my Sons friend. He loves her and Daisy had just bonded to him. Here are a couple of videos from the weekend. Dalton is 10 years old riding Daisy. She is very much loved.


...He is always patting and praising her. I read all the emails that were sent to me after i got her and did it all in order as said. With life so busy, i had forgotten to just pat, talk and just be with my horses. I did this with Daisy and remembered how i used to be as a child with my horse. I have constantly told Dalton to pat her and praise her. He is a kind animal loving boy so it was natural for him to do that anyway. He just loves her and she has just bonded with him. Daisy gave me my confidence back. As i have constantly rubbed her head when i greeted her, she has now started to rub my hand. The first thing i do when i greet her is put my hand on her head between her eyes and she rubs her head up and down my hand now. She makes me laugh as its as though she is patting me lol. Thankyou for this beautiful girl xx


We get so caught up on life, we forget. I am so enjoying my horses. They love the forestry. We stop and let them have a pick. I also let them out of their paddocks into the house yard to eat. Daisy loves that and waits at the gate to be let out but she is smart. As soon as it is starting to get dark and I make up their feeds, I open gates and she puts herself back away and waits for dinner. Dalton rode her up to his place last weekend and did the jumping. He was very excited. You don't have to worry about Daisy now. She is loved by everyone who meets her. Better go. So happy I have made your day. Have a great night x

(Regarding Thoroughbreds)

It is humans who ruin these beauties. I am dealing with cruel intentions of an uneducated human. This poor boy deserves so much more than he has recieved in the past 12mths. In saying that, despite what we as humans have done to him, he is still such a sooky boy. I love my OTTs but height is my issue (haha im short n hes close to 17hh). I cant wait to get on this boy and get out and about. Your baby boy will get back to where you had him Phoebe...

Michelle Binstead‎ to Phoebe Trindall-Norling

Good morning Phoebe . I just wanted to let you know how proud I am of the boys this morning. Monty was the one lying down with Beau standing watch over him for a change. The fact that Monty actually trusts boss man Beau to stand so close when in a very vulnerable state is awesome ... but ... Monty finally let me go right up to him, in the dark with a torch, stand there scratching his head while he was still down was the best start to the day. He doesn't mind during the day but when it's dark he gets up as soon as he sees me coming so this is a BIG thing for him. So much love for these 2 horses 💖💖

Hi Phoebe, Thanks for your reply... He was so good yesterday.

Due to heavy rain and me helping at my riding clubs comp for three days poor Felix hadn't had any work or much attention other than being stabled at night, having rugs changed, fed and a quick brush.

As soon as I brought him in for work he was so interested in everything I did.

Nosing my head and hair while I put his boots on, chewing the lunging whip while I tried to mend it, I only lunged him and.. .WOW he just stretched down and kept the most beautiful rhythm and tempo at the trot. It was lovely to watch.

...his work was just beautiful and he listened to everything I said.

When we went back to the stables and I brushed him down he was the same, nibbling the brush, giving me a scratch back when I got his itchy spots.

I felt like he was really being engaged with me and we were doing everything together, almost as if he had missed the time we normally spend doing things.

While he was tied under the stable verandah a rooster chased a hen from around the back of the stables, wings flapping, squawking and flat out straight under Felix's legs. He never moved! He is such a gem.

I'll have a chance to ride him out with friends in a couple of weeks time when they bring their horses over. I'll try to remember to get them to take some photos of Felix and I to send to you.

They have their own racehorses that have finished racing and train really kindly and gently too so we are all going to help each other.

They have found as I so often have so many instructors just have too little regard for the horses wellbeing.

I keep referring back to your notes on training, feeding etc. and the e-mails you have sent so thank you again.

Sometimes when I look back for a particular answer I read something else and get the "Oh Yeah, I'd forgotten that " experience.


3 / 07 / 2017 


Hi Phoebe,

I have finally got a chance to e-mail you after a terrible month with .... a string of things going wrong. One thing that is going right though is Felix...

One day I was cleaning the round yard when a totally non horsey friend called. I stopped and leant on the yard rails to talk to her with my back to Felix who was dozing on the other side of the yard.

Engaged in conversation I wasn't paying any attention to Felix until a nose was very gently rested on my shoulder and hot air breathed into my neck.

This brought a big aahhhh from my friend. I think is really starting to think of me as 'his' person and now after I have ridden him I am finding he is even more affectionate. I wonder if he has never had a special permanent person in his life before. I wish he could talk! I just want him to be as happy and contented as possible.

None of the saddles I had fitted him properly and after having a little ride in the round yard in a couple of them I had to start looking for a saddle for him.

Anyway finally got one and I have now ridden him half a dozen times. It took me a couple of rides to even be able to rise to the trot on him as his stride was so long after the ponies. It was like learning to ride all over again.

I was scared if he shot forward or something I would be out of the saddle. He was really good though and now we ride out on the arena and today I rode him down the lane to let the chooks out.

Only walking and trotting at this stage and working on getting him straight and reaching into the bit and me sitting stiller and more securely in the saddle...

I really love him and I don't think I have thanked you yet for finding me such a lovely friend. So if I haven't, thank you now from the bottom of my heart.

I am just frightened the dream might disappear! He seems too good to be true. The friend who encouraged me to buy him knows the disappointments I have had with other horses and laughed when I told her I didn't dare keep saying how good he was in case I put a moz on him and my dreams.

You wouldn't believe in the first week of owning him how negatively some people reacted to me having bought a horse sight unseen and for only $3000!

I couldn't possibly have bought anything any good for that much money, certainly not quiet, very dodgy, make sure I really tire him out before I get on him, what was I getting another horse for etc. etc. etc.

It was really very upsetting and un-nerving for me who has an anxiety disorder anyway.

So I just stopped telling people about him and now I am just keeping him under wraps and working away quietly until he is ready to take out....a gleaming black gem.

Then we'll show them. I certainly wasn't going to tire him out before I got on him. What a great way to teach a horse how unpleasant training and riding could be for him.

I noticed you have changed locations. What an absolutely fabulous property. I hope things work out really well for you there and you are really happy and can keep helping even more horses and people.

I just wish I lived closer and could come for lessons with you in that fantastic indoor arena.

Looking forward to hearing from you....but don't feel under pressure to respond as I am sure you are still busy settling in and I know only too well what that is like.





Cassandra Norman Phoebe Trindall-Norling I can honestly say that you do stand by your guarantee. I purchased a horse from you and I was not ready to have him and jumped in to quickly and you have helped me find him the home he deserves.




Janet Wells I've been following this for a few months now & I think it is an absolutely fantastic service. I own & operate my own horse rescue & rehab, Ride a Rescue. I have been working with these "troubled" horses for many years & I often think to myself that I wish the owners of these "troubled" horses could realise how simple horsemanship should be & that they are the ones making it so hard. I LOVE the information offered on EQUEST for this reason. If every horse owner tapped into this service, their wouldn't be so many horses in need of being rescued, that's for sure! It's straight forward, common sense guidance. One day I might have to spoil myself & buy 1 from you, heck... what's another 1 or 2 to add to the other 15, no one would notice! ;) Thanks for making the equine community a safer place Phoebe!




Michelle Binstead:

Phoebe Trindall-Norling is incredible. I bought Beau (Calimero) from her last year going only by photos and her recommendation on who suited me in my circumstances at the time. I knew he would be perfect for me and he is. I was so happy and confident with her judgement that I asked her to find me another that would suit my family and grandchildren when they visit...and along came Monty (Montana). He is bringing out confidence in my 12 yr old grandson which he so desperately needs in so many ways. These 2 big TB's are my best friends thanks to Phoebe. 




Kailee Sentance I honestly love these 💜 have given me so many tips and a way to evaluate what im doing as well as what duke is doing and why xxx



Di Holden: 11th April, 2017

"I've had nothing but honesty & fairness during all the horse purchases I have made from phoebe. She is true to her word regarding full refund if & when necessary & has always gone out of her way to assist in organising transport of these horses to Sydney for me . 

Can't ask for better service than that !"



Sienna Jade: 10th April, 2017

"Phoebe Trindall-Norling is amazing. She helped us so much. Straight talker. Love her to bits."



Robyn Pritchard: 10th April, 2017

"I have had dealings with Phoebe both as a buyer and a seller. I found her to be an honest, understanding and a genuine person. I can not recommend her highly enough if some one is looking to buy or sell a horse. I have been in the horse industry for 20 years and have come across quiet a few shady characters. But I found Phoebe to be a very knowledgeable person and has a true love for horses. Thanks for placing my boys with their new families. Robyn Pritchard."



Kellie:  29th March 2017

"Hi Phoebe and Des my son has just had his 4th ride on Janeiro aka Jay on sunday at a gymkhana would you believe and won 4 ribbons he is very kind and sensible. He had 2hrs at ponyclub the week before and that's it to date so we were thrilled thanks so much Kel and boys".





Thanks for sending the paperwork for Felix. Sorry I am only just getting back to you about him.

Our bond is already cementing. He is settling in well now and really endeared himself to me yesterday when he saw me coming and came to meet me at the gate of the paddock where he and one of my old ponies were happily grazing for the afternoon.

He seemed really sad and empty when he first arrived, maybe he was just tired or the heat was troubling him ...or maybe he was just thinking "now where have I been sent" but has just settled more and more each day and is just so obliging with anything I ask of him.

The flies were really bad too and biting and seemed especially attracted to him. He was almost beside himself. I washed him with a medicated shampoo and then sprayed him with a tropical strength personal spray which didn't work and he didn't like being sprayed much either.

I then gave the Natures Botanicals fly cream a try and it worked like a charm. I used a food handling latex glove and just put a small amount on the glove and wiped it all over the glove first then all over him. Took a few dips into the pot to cover his whole body but it was quite economical and didn't evaporate of the coat. Now I put it on him first thing in the morning and it lasts all day. It seems different products deter different flies!

I had been leaving him in the round yard overnight just as a precaution and also because it had been so hot but last night we had torrential rain and cool wind so about 1:00 am I went out and put him in one of my big roomy stables with deep straw bedding.

He loved it and was so clean in the stable. Just settled down to munching on his hay straight away. He had two of my old ponies in the yard outside the stables for company and they also had access to stable next to his. When I went out in the morning he seemed quite happy and content.

Tonight I took his shoes off and he was so patient. Left his hoof on the hoof rest while I stood up to give my back a rest.

Even lifted a hoof when he thought I was wanting it picked up.

I took ages to get the shoes off ( I haven't removed shoes for years) and he just stood there dozing. So good. He must have wondered why he got so much praise while I did the job and a big hug at the end when I finally had the shoes off and the feet rasped.

He has lovely feet for a thoroughbred. Really tight little black feet.

So far he hasn't reacted to anything on the farm either and as you predicted he was absolutely fine with the duck shooting.

I am just going to take it slowly with him and hopefully get the weight back on him with just hay before I ride him.

He is getting ad lib meadow hay in nibble nets as I am trying encourage that consistent grazing and chewing which is so good for their digestive system and mental health and shouldn't hot him up.

In the afternoon he goes out to graze with one of my ponies. I don't want to give him too much access to the grass at the moment as it is mainly couch grass which can be high in Oxalic Acid isn't good for them.

I will start doing a bit of groundwork with him and just play with him until I feel his weight is OK and by then we should know each other much better too.

What a history he has! I had done a bit of detective work on the internet and had discovered his real identity (even without full access to the ASB) before your papers arrived to confirm it.

Anyway so far we are getting on beautifully together and he is so striking and imposing. I could look at his lovely head over the stable door for hours.

I'll try to give a regular update on him though Equest. It will be slow and steady progress but I'm hoping it will be a journey that both of us really enjoy.

Forgot to mention that the marks he got from the white tape have almost covered with new hair now and what a beautiful skinned horse he is.

Such a fine coat. Like satin when he is warm and then when he is a bit cool it fluffs up like the finest velvet.

To say he has only been with me for a week I think we are doing pretty well. I must admit my confidence was a bit shaken when I first saw how big he was and when I lead him he had such a huge walk but just as he is getting used to me I am getting used to him.

It is a big step up for me from ponies and at my age.



Emma: 1 March, 2017

"Hey Phoebe, 

Recently purchased a horse and although I couldn't snap one of yours up (yet!) I have been reading through your website. Just wanted to say it has been a good reminder for me and teaching my daughter "back to basics". So simple yet uber effective information. 

Thank you so much just wanted to basically say thanks and you, unknowingly have helped me help my daughter."

"Michelle Binstead I have bought 2 horses from Phoebe Trindall-Norling sight unseen and haven't had any problems with them. One is 16hh the other close to that and my grandkids that had never even sat on a horse before have been on them - aged from 12yrs down to 1yr old. The horses are so gentle, loving and patient with the kids. I highly recommend her to find you a suitable horse. Oh by the way, I have never met Phoebe so this is a genuine testimonial for her. 😊"

Hi Phoebe Trindall-Norling we are very interested in securing one of your horses in the next year and we have relied on the feedback from your happy clients as part of our decision. I hadn't thought to ask you more details of how you choose the horses until we are closer to purchase but I just loved your comment about that and I just wanted to let you know that the publicity, whilst not how you would like to receive it, is working because I am more convinced than ever that you are the right person and your horses are the right horses for us! My daughter who is desperate for a horse hopes that you won't give it up before we come to you when the time is right! We look forward to welcoming one of your babies into our hearts and home!

keep going lol. Never had a horse that wasn't wanting to go home 😄.


..."Hehe I was standing in the paddock talking to Brian with Beau beside me. I wasn't taking any notice of him so he nudged my arm, I ignored him so he nudged me again then pushed my back a bit. I still ignored so so he rested his head on my shoulder then put it on my head. "Can't ignore me this time mum"

Chai McConnell...22 October 2016

"Hi Phoebe I 100% endorse your views. My ex-partner Kym and I rescued a 16-3 hand thoroughbred called Whitfied a few years ago. He had been abused. He would kick and bite and we couldn't even rug him. Feed time was a nightmare. He was insecure and acted out. But with lots of care, love and re-education, he regained his confidence and he has turned into an amazing horse and one of my best friends. Part of regaining his security and confidence involved taking him for walks like a 600kg dog. He grazes beside me and whereas previously he would bite, he now gives me gentle nudges to check in with me. I talk to him and give him scratches. I lean on him and play with his ears and I have no issues in catching him as he always trots or canters to me. Just spending time like this with your horse will do wonders for it and you."

Tonight I was running about 5mins later than usual so he just came and put himself to bed lol. He just wanders in and stands there as if to say "ok mum where's dinner". Love this big fella."



Sienna...21 October 2016

I told him I was saving for another quiet one so that way we could go riding together. His reply "I bar Beau 'cause I will have known him longer". Beau was so patient with everyone today. The smaller the rider the slower he walked lol. Even the one that turned 4 decided he had to take him for a walk. Beau gets that low he's almost crawling behind him. Super super super happy, proud and in love with this horse. Thank you x x"

Brydee: She's a very special girl ☺ follows me around everywhere! The other day mum's horse didn't want to come to me when I called (he's best friends with the neighbors Shetland and didn't want to leave him haha) and Sapph ran down, rounded him up and brought him straight to me! I couldn't believe it hahah



Beth...10 October 2016

Beth: "I have a very interesting story to tell you because I know you like little updates because I know how amazing aztec is I popped my very unexperienced friend on her and my friend misjudged how much pressure she needed to try a trot, which i didnt suggest and she ended up in a canter and because i misjudged aztecs mind i thought she would run straight into the fence and hurt herself terrible i was never worried about the girl on the horse because i know aztec would never intentionally hurt even a fly, so in her full canter i jumped in front of her and she stopped dead in her tracks, of course she looked at me as in have i done something wrong ? so of course i gave her cuddles to make sure she knew how good she was, ive never trusted a horse so much and all she is is a big gentle giant...I love her so much she will be in this family forever 🙂"

Beth, re Aztec: " Where my happiness lies...

I love her so much!!!! Friends even love her...

...never trusted a horse more than I trust my giant baby.



Michelle...9 October 2016

Michelle: ...A friend got him for me.  He's that quiet all my grandkids have been on him.  He plods along so slow and if he's saddled up with no-one on him he'll stand where ever he is left and doesn't move not even to graze.  Big gentle giant."



Michelle...1 October 2016

Michelle: "Beau is just so gentle and slow around the kids. My 12yr old grandson likes horses but is very wary of them. He was leading Beau around and looking a bit nervous. Beau lowered his head even more than usual and rested it against Degan's arm as if to say it was ok and you could see with each step Degan relaxed with him. He has never wanted to get on a horse but said next time he might try just sitting on Beau. You never know, maybe Beau will give him confidence to ride. :) x"



Lisa, (re:Jarvis)...28 Sept 2016

I did it ... I must have been a sight trying to climb up lol. Even with my stirrup leather right down I still had to climb. I'm such a short arse hehe. Awesome awesome awesome. To be able to ride on a horse and actually have to push him to walk rather than on a pony that only believes in full steam ahead or instant halt. I rode around his 1/4 acre yard for about 1/2 hour then decided to go out in the open 10acres. He picked up pace a bit there with so much new stuff to see but was still good. He is now enjoying the afternoon grazing out there. My beautiful boy. Thanks Phoebe x

...Phoebe Trindall-Norling. You're an honest woman. I had nothing but honesty the time I met you. You pointed me in the right direction. For what was suitable for us. I know I'll come see you when I'm ready for one for me.

Thanks to Phoebe Trindall-Norling for selling another lovely horse to one of my clients today. You have made this young lady very happy indeed 😊

Shes the perfect horse for being scared of buying her sight unseen I'm glad I did so I didn't lose my chance with the beautiful horse 😊 so worth it, everything you said she was and more 😊

'Ari is doing well! Fast learner, adapts to his rider, if he's confused by the beginner rider he slows and stops. Responsive enough for me and tries so hard to please that I love teaching him. Will make a great little pony club mount later I think. 


He's very much loved still and doing well!

Love this horse, his name is Sandiago.  He is an almost 17hh Thoroughbred gelding I purchased from Queensland a couple of months ago. 

So far he has lived up to his reputation of being an absolute gentle giant...he's a total spunk & very popular with our students & visitors.

Might be time to think about getting back in the saddle soon and test "driving" this beauty.



Danielle...25 July 2016

"Look at this beautiful big boy! 😍 He's super sweaty after our ride this arvo...Meet Jupiter.

This is my boy Romeo renamed Jupiter. He is an absolute delight. I have a friend riding him mid week as she I between horses atm.

Everyone who meets him loves him!"

"New addition to our family has arrived safely from Queensland just now .. Cruised off the truck , had a lovely roll in the dirt just to alter his gleaming black coat, had a Drink @ the bar , now chowing down on lunch ... Happy days !! 

Thanks to Phoebe Trindall-Norling for once again, delivering a horse in good condition & exactly as described" 



Di Holden...20th April 2016

Just want to say a big thank you to Phoebe Trindall-Norling for her honest description of a young mare that I purchased in September 2015.

Being based in Sydney & being busy with running my own business I didn't have 

time to view the mare.

It's always a risk purchasing a horse sight unseen but this young mare arrived in excellent condition, as described in the advertisement and was everything I had hoped for.

She has settled into the riding school beautifully & we are looking forward to getting her out to dressage competitions this year .

I would recommend phoebe to anyone looking to purchase a horse!



Candace Harrison


A great help right when we needed it she corrects problems with kindness and lets the horse be themselves!


Camelia Althaus


Very understanding, and a pleasure to do business with. Excellent help definitely will be using Phoebes service in future


Leisa Schonknecht


Have had Phoebe come and work with my very green Arab mare and I and have found her to be a great horsewoman and lovely person. 


Annie Turner 


Phoebe is very understanding, helpful, calm and kind natured. She helped boost my confidence after returning to riding after 10+yr break. Annie Turner 


Sandy Weldon-Hendriks 


Phoebe is a beautiful person with a great heart and is so intune with the horses. I would recommend her to anyone who has a horse that needs breaking in, training or just some loving.
