This year (2012) I started looking for a young horse to take over from my “once in a lifetime horse” who retired at the age of 29 after 24 years of great rides. After looking at many horses, I found "the one” at Kate’s yard. I just can’t believe I have found another fantastic partner. Kate was very helpful and honest about the 5 year old mare’s experience and temperament. There was no pressure when I tried her and I was also encouraged to bring my instructor for a second opinion. I felt she really cared about making sure the horse and I would be happy together. I definitely recommend Kate if you are looking for a special horse. To date my youngster and I have entered two dressage competitions and been placed 2nd and 1st! I cant wait for the 2013 season! Kate, thanks for Sandy – she is one in a million and she has a forever home. Lynn
Kate, I would like to thank you very very much for dealing with the sale of my horse Isla. This was a very difficult decision I had to make, and finding the right home was the most important thing to me, I know the prospective owner needed to meet my huge criteria!! but you did this and found the most perfect home I could ever of asked for. Throughout the viewings and sale you were honest and professional which made this as easy for me as possible. I am still in contact with her new owners and they are absolutely delighted with her,
"Last November (2010), I bought a competition horse from Kate for my 16 year old daughter. We had been looking for some time and seen an array of unsuitable horses! From the first phone call Kate was very helpful and informative. We saw Telltale at Kate’s yard where she gave us as much time as we wanted to try him, and we spent a long time discussing what we were looking for, the facilities and support we had at home etc. Kate was very open and honest about the horse, my daughter’s ability, what she thought about the partnership. I felt very confident that she was there to sell the right horse to the right person, not just sell a horse. We are so pleased with Telltale, he is far more than we could have hoped for.
In April of this year (2011) I was once again looking for a horse for my 15 year old daughter. We were looking for a very different type of horse this time and I was delighted when I found Kate had a lovely 15hh Connemara . Once again we were given as much time as we wanted to try Isla, and went back a couple of times trying her in the school, on the roads, in open fields etc. Again Kate was very patient as we explained what we were looking for and again she was very open and honest about the horse and its suitability. Once more we have a horse that is exactly what we were looking for and is exactly what was described.
In the future I would always approach Kate when looking for a new horse. "
Ella was purchased 6 weeks ago. After two weeks of owning her we decided to take her to the British jumping derby meeting, jumping her around the meter and 1.05m courses. She got through to the jump off each day! Ella was brought of Kate as exactly the horse we was looking for, shes a little horse with lots of potential and leaps of scope under her little body! She has excelled within her flat work after having lessons with Leanne wall who loves her attitude to learn and improve. Jumping lessons she just seems to have no limit!
Ella was the horse we wasn't looking for, but has grown into the family and we all cant wait to watch her grow and develop into a wonderful show jumper!
Thanks Kate X
