It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Gareth Selwood and Lorick Stables. I sent a young stallion for driving breaking and training. The work done on the horse was exactly what I wanted. His condition and attitude were perfect. He was delivered to me is show shape and went on to win USEF Regional and National titles in just 3 months of showing. And the thing that I was most impressed with was the communication that I received. Videos and phone calls as well as emails kept me up to date on his progress. I found the stable to be run very professionally with extra care given to all the horses. As a trainer myself, I know the work that goes into this level of quality and I would gladly send another horse for training.
I originally met Gareth Selwood in late 2003 when I asked him to train a young Friesian mare that was 17 hands and obnoxious. Gareth was patient but firm, letting the mare know what was expected without being demanding. He knew when to work and when she needed to finish the lesson and it was always on something she did well. I always felt that Gareth has given any horse in his care the time to learn the basics before he advanced them to the next level. In 2004, my young mare was the USEF Friesian National Champion Halter Horse and in 2005 she won her first Championship in English Show Hack at the IFSHA World and Grand National Championships. I have since sponsored a Perpetual Trophy for this class because I was so proud of my young mare and the quality of training and care given to her by Gareth Selwood.
