The camp was great, met old friends and new all willing to care and support each other. My return for the 4th year will already tell you how much I love the venue!, food, location, homely, friendly wonderful place, thanks for encouraging me to come that first year when I was being unconfident about the distance from Lancashire!

Have just enjoyed another wonderful week a Brandy House Farm. The farm is set in fabulous countryside with great riding and no roads. The accommodation is superb and very comfortable and the food cooked by Richard and Medina is really yummy. They are of course the best of hosts making you feel welcome and at home. Nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend Brandy House Farm to anyone wanting a holiday in fabulous countryside, either walking, with their horse or just chilling out.

I had a brilliant week with Eddie -the perfect combination of R+R and learning. As always on Parelli courses I made new friends and revisited with old ones. The highlight for me was all the liberty work. My liberty at home, which was completely stuck , has now come on in leaps and bounds with Eddie and my other horse as well. I think it is a testament to Ali's teaching style that you take away what you have learnt as longterm arrows in your quiver , not just a 'quick fix' that doesn't last. Similarly I am finding the whole 'zero brace ' concept very useful.
The perfect counterpoint to all tis learning was the time to relax with like minded friends and eat wonderful food all prepared for you, then sink into a comfortable bed and sleep in total peace and quiet. Can you tell how much I'm looking forward to coming back?

Brandy House Farm is wonderful - as a place to relax and explore the Welsh hills with my horse and dog, and as a venue to run Parelli Natural Horsemanship Clinics. Medina and Richard are very welcoming, the accommodation is lovely, the scenery is amazing and the food is fantastic. This is my third year in a row and I'm looking forward to next year already!!

I have just returned home from an amazing week at Brandy House. The atmosphere was so welcoming and friendly, the home cooked food was lovely, the views were stunning and the rooms and facilities were of the highest standard. The horses had safe, sheltered paddocks and every effort was made to help us cater for their needs. I highly recommend Brandy House to anyone who wants a peaceful, comfortable break with or without a horse (:

The venue is fabulous, I loved my bedroom where I could look out and see my horse grazing. I loved the home cooked food, and the little extra touches like homemade cake on offer every afternoon with tea!
Christine (Ali Jones Savvy Camp)
Thank you for a wonderful week. Everything about it was great. I am not a natural "group person" or one for joining in but my interest in parelli and the idea of a week away with just my horse was too good to resist. The whole atmosphere was so relaxed and supportive that I really enjoyed it and soon forgot that I was the only one who had no idea what they were doing. I learnt alot and had a great week. Please tell Richard the food was fantastic.

I would like to praise Mattie Cowherd for a fabulous clinic at an amazing venue, Brandy House Farm, the first 4 days covered horsenality which was not only educational, but challenged us individually and as a group to evaluate our horses and ourselves, at times it was emotionally exhausting but always supportive, the group was great, we all worked hard at being there for each other and recognising each persons humanality. My goal was to learn to be more progressive with my horse without ruiining the relationship/rapport we had, my goal was met and i hfeel i have more strategies to deal with any type of horse I touch. We then went on and did a 2 day trail riding clinic.....It was amazing how Mattie set us up for safe and savvy trail riding........I personally learnt so much and had immense fun and so did my horse.
