Counting Stars and Cynthia Moore West went to the national eventing championships and ended up 11th within a year of purchasing him at novice level. In our area he was the novice horse year End champion. He won the 3-day novice event at Colorado Horse Park this fall. He’s doing the amateur owner hunters at the big national Western Stock show this next weekend (January 2017). I think he’s going to be an amazing Hunter also and I might even try the hunter derby. He has such a beautiful rhythm and softness in his Canter with a athletic jump.
Dear Helene, I am writing to share how happy I am to have found such amazing horses through TopHorse. I imported both of my horses around a year ago and I can not be happier with them. This was the first time I ventured into the idea of bringing in a horse site unseen. I saw so many nice jumpers through the Tophorse website. Helene was very helpful as we talked thru my riding goals and horses that might fit my needs. I liked that many of the horses had X-rays and good pre-purchase vet exams. From a practical standpoint, wanted to make sure the horse had a clean vet record and was amateur friendly so if the horse was not the exact fit I was looking for, it could be resold. As an older amateur, I feel that I am at a point in my life that I don’t want to spent a lot if time getting horse to a competitive level, I just want to go out to win. I work with trainers but I also do a lot on my own so the horses had to be talented and safe. Both horses had good foundations and had some competition experience in Europe. They were used to tight arenas with a lot of jumps coming up fast which was a good foundation. I liked that Helene and her partner knew about the temperament of the horses to help advise the best horse for my riding style. Both horses were very amateur friendly and quickly settled into my workout routine. I was amazed to be showing both horses within weeks of importing them. They settled at my farm and on the show scene quite remarkably. I am thrilled to have two wonderful jumpers that are competitive and fun to show. I love looking at the talent on the TopHorse website and I know it will be easy to find my next jumper when I am ready for another one.
