As the owner of 3 Top Horses, I can’t say enough positive things about the process of selecting, vetting, purchasing and riding these wonderful horses. They arrived in the US from Holland with talent and have continued to develop into amazing athletes. As an Amateur rider who does most of my training on my own except at shows and occasional lessons, I needed Top Performing Young Horses that were safe and sane and sound. I relied on the experience and relationship I have with Helene Jones to help me find 3 Amazing Horses. I got most of them as 5/6yo’s. As young horses, I felt they were all started properly. Good basic dressage/flat work. Knowledge of balance and lead changes. Jumping course and jumping a few big ones to show their scope and willingness. Some experience in the show ring. Frankly, I could not find these attributes in young horses in the US at the price I was willing to spend. They were probably 1/2 of what a similar horse in the US costs and that included vetting, import, and everything. The horses arrived with full vetting and xrays. I felt confident in my purchases that if the horse was not the fit for me, I could easily sell him and recoup my investment. I love riding, training and showing everyone one of my Top Horses. I get so many compliments about them that it is all-around fun. Which is what it’s all about. Winning, Fun and Loving these Amazing Animals.
When I think back about the horses in my life, my favorite and most important ones are due to Helene and top horses. I cannot say enough about their eye for quality and talent. Importing a horse with Helene can only be described as easy and stress free. Everything is so upfront and you can guarantee the horse you get will be everything you thought it was going to be or more. They have advanced my career and provided amazing experiences for our students. As a young professional I feel so lucky to have this relationship.
