Twenty years in the business has given us chance to work with some amazing teams, companies and shows.  Here are just a few of their testimonials…

‘For the past seven years we have been using Atkinson Action Horses for the Arundel Castle International Jousting Tournament, and couldn’t be happier. The Atkinson Action team is friendly, professional, and provides excellent horses for our event. Each year they provide our tournament with 10-14 horses. These horses are wonderfully trained for the job at hand, able to cope with a wide range of riders, and the noises of a busy jousting tournament without the slightest hesitation. We always look forward to having the team of Atkinson Action Horses at our event.’

Stacy Van Dolah-Evans, Event Director – Arundel Castle International Tournament


‘Atkinson Action Horses were the highlight of our Roman event at King’s Cross and were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. They listened carefully to our brief and proceeded to create a bespoke experience that more than lived up to our expectations.

Not only did they cast and choreograph twenty actors, write the script, hire and make bespoke costumes and source a Roman Chariot. They also put on a very entertaining Gladiator School which the adults enjoyed watching as much as the kids did taking part.

Mike managed the project extremely well and kept me up to date and reassured throughout. I was constantly impressed by the teams knowledge and enthusiasm and would love to work with them again.’

Sophie Lemm, Event Producer – Kings Cross Battle Bridge Weekend, London


 ‘Atkinson Action Horses have thrilled audiences at Royal Armouries for the past number of years. They’re shows are extremely versatile from swash buckling adventure to nail biting stunts to historically accurate jousts. I would have no 

hesitation in recommending Mark Atkinson and his exceptional team of riders and horses.’

Lisa Power, Royal Armouries Leeds

‘When Marks horsebox arrives at a show, my stress levels drop off, I have total faith in what lies behind the ramp, in addition I get total support from all of his team, with a total knowledge of the horses and riding skill and an uncanny knack of matching riders to horses to shows. What more needs saying, I feel privileged to ride his horses’

Stephen Baker, D Squadron Lancashire Hussars
