Julie's love and dedication to horses shines through the results she produces.  I have been amazed at the results she has achieved for me. .. from fresh unbroken ponies to ex racehorses off the track.  Her facilities are wonderful and safe.  I would highly recommend her expertise.


Christa Jones. Monahan Connemara Stud.

Julie is a very competent horsewoman and is extremely capable at breaking in and schooling horses for all types of equestrian disciplines.  Her popularity with the horse fraternity is a testament to her skills and patience with horses. She has broken in a number of our Connemara ponies, which have gone on to compete with great success.

We at the Boonahburra Connemara Stud use with confidence the professional horse breaking and training service of Julie Middleton.


Darryl and Leanne Hilton. Racehorse owners and Pony Club Parents.

We have known Julie for about 10 years.  We got to know Julie through our local Pony Club as she was instructing at the club, teaching young kids how to ride and look after a horse. We were very impressed with her training style and her knowledge of horses and we decided to use her as our daughter's personal instructor. On several occasions we witnessed Julie track riding and educating horses for the dressage movements and show jumping in order to get the horse's mind on the job and keep them calm and relaxed- a very special gift. Julie is a very caring, hardworking and respected  person in the equine industry.

After being referred to Julie Middleton by a friend I have to say "fantastic job".
My brumby had been out of work for some months.  Green, young, and I'd had a fall and was ready to sell her on. Julie had my mare for 3 weeks.  Her lovely kind manner towards the horses, and her experience showed.  When I got on my horse and rode her I finished with a smile that couldn't be wiped off my face.
Julie is passionate about what she does and understands both horses and riders' abilities.  I believe her honest approach is hard to find.
i would highly recommend Julie for starting,retraining and lessons.


Veronica Phillips.  Owner of brumby Nelson, who was started at Taminga.

I brought my BrumbyXStockhorse to Julie after being referred by a friend.  Nelson was a clever horse but had a few behaviour issues.  Julie's quiet, persistent and experienced training methods bought out the best in him.  Julie started him and worked with him for 4 weeks, always keeping me up to date with his progress.  After my first ride my 13 year old daughter also had a ride-we were both very impressed! 
Julie's combination of being a qualified teacher and experienced horse woman, make for a really great horse trainer.
Thanks Julie for turning a good horse into a fantastic reliable horse.  We are looking forward to a lifetime of fun with him.
