Ride for Fun - Confidence Boost - Back in the Saddle - Serious Competition

What I do - clients contact me, we then discuss their wishes and aspirations and we agree a budget for horse purchase and the Source-a-Horse service. The client is asked to send in a video of their riding for assessment. We also discuss search area and time scale. The pre-purchase service includes accompanying to viewing and also trialling prospective purchase.

SUCCESS STORY  1 

A In 2015 Poppy Waller answered a sales advert for a stock horse called Dazzle. He was an interesting colour, with a hogged mane.  All in all, a smart appoloosian event horse, who excelled at jumping and xc.  Poppy at 15, took Dazzle hunting with her friends, competed at unaffiliated level, and thoroughly enjoyed him. After 3 years hard work schooling on the flat and gridwork, they are winning rosettes in British Eventing, at Solihull and around the Forest of Dean.  Good luck in your next Novice BE , Poppy.

SUCCESS STORY 2

When it was time to move on from her pony, Nell came back to see me to source her new horse.  She wanted to find a horse that she could take to Pony Club camp in a few months’ time.  She wanted an allrounder to enjoy all types of Pony Club activities who was easier to handle in the stable and well behaved in the trailer.  When I assessed Tommy, a 15-hand bay cob, he looked perfect.  However, I wanted to be sure, so took Nell to spend time with Tommy on 3 visits.  I am happy to say that this extra time choosing was exactly the right strategy as within 2 months Nell and Tommy enjoyed camp together and won the Progress cup at Warwickshire Hunt.
