Top quality FEI showhorses imported from the Netherlands

"For the past two years I have had the pleasure of teaching Shelley and her students. Shelley is an excellent rider, and great teacher of both young and grand prix level horses, and is able to correct the habits of poorly ridden horses. She brings out the best in them."

Walter Zettl

"She takes superb care of her animals as well as the animals in her charge. She follows a regimented preventative veterinary medicine protocol, as well as good husbandry practices. She keeps her facilities in an extremely neat and orderly manner.
