"I was recently at one of your archery clinics and loved it, it was the best. I would give you guys a 5 star because you knew and understood horses so well. A true horse woman. I would really love to do a horsemanship and clicker training clinic because it looks absolutely amazing. I found out in the last clinic that Tazzie is a lot more trustworthy and willing than I thought, and it made me more confident (i actually canter a lot bareback and bit less now) I think Tazzie enjoyed it a lot as well (because to be honest he didn't really have to work that hard, which is alright because he did it well)" - G. Welsh "Thank you! The obstacle Day was great, looking forward to the next outback Clinic"

"Fantastic clinic as always -Hayley is a great trainer and is very good at dedicating her time to each individual and their needs. It was lovely group of people, pleasure to be surrounded by Like minded people."
"Having attended 3 clinics - clicker, combined obstacle and horse archery ... All hosts provided excellent hospitality and facilities. Hayley and Carly are down to earth and make attendees feel comfortable and cultivate confidence. Clinic programs are adaptable for participant needs. Being able to attend as a fence sitter at a reasonable price is also a great feature. Looking forward to attending future events =)"
It was a great day, really loved the supportive environment, I was made to feel comfortable and was very impressed by how much support Hayley and all the participants showed - there is a really cool culture of encouragement which is great to see! "Hi Hayley, I just wanted to say thank you for the liberty and clicker training clinic last weekend. Although we attended as fence sitters were were included in every aspect of the clinic and the team made sure we were getting just as much information as the participants there with their horses. I came home with lots of information and tools to start training with my gelding at home. I cant wait until I am able to attend the next clinic with my horse! Most importantly, as well as having a wealth of knowledge, the Outback Equine team also amend their training to adapt to each horse and conduct their clinics in a really friendly and welcoming way. I will be back!" - H. Hayes
