"It was clear from the start that Andrea understood exactly what we were looking for when we came to him to buy a horse – a real “school master” for my daughter, an experienced event horse which would be manageable to ride. From then on he introduced us to a number of horses, each could have been “the one” - each totally suitable. We went out and tried them all, in the ring, on the cross country etc. When I asked him how we were going to choose he said “ when you fall in love with one, buy that one!” When we saw Freddie, we knew we had to buy him. With a kind temperament and a love for jumping and cross country, Freddie is teaching my daughter quickly, safely and providing lots of fun. They are a team and under Andrea’s tuition, are progressing every time she is in the saddle. Many thanks Andrea! "
