Celebrating the purchase of Haute Couture, 9 yo reserve for the KWPN team for the Olympics in Tokyo.
My partner Dana Hewett and I were able to secure Haute Couture for our client, Katherine Bateson, who was looking for her next International competition partner.
Katherine rode Haute Couture in the Netherlands back in October. This partnership was perfect from the first ride, and it is so exciting to have played a part in bringing this exceptional mare to the United States for Katherine who has the goal of qualifying for the US Dressage Team at the World Equestrian Games.
Dana and I have done this many times in the past, finding the right horse for clients, relying on the relationships developed, and sourcing horses that 100% meet the requirements of our clients, stressing soundness, temperament and athletic ability as well as choosing horses that are classically trained, and easy to ride.

Thank you Marie-Pierre Carignan for finding the perfect new home for our very own Ferrari. Ferrari gave Megan so much experience while we had her, and now she has gone to her new home where she is owned by Julie Perron and will be teaching Julie's daughter, Eliane.
I was thrilled yesterday to get a photo of Eliane and Ferrari at their first competition.
Hilda Donahue and your client Susan Sackett on the purchase of Capelo. What a wonderful PSG horse, imported from Spain. I am so happy I was able to be a small part of the process, and help you find your perfect horse!
First competition together!
Heading to Quebec and her new home!
