After 20 years of observing busy customers that had taken a 20 yr hiatus from riding, to have children/careers, and had not ridden regularly, and struggled to take time off work or away from home obligations to fly across the country, to try a horse, only to make a choice on the purchase of a lifetime horse after a 10 minute sit on a new horse’s back, in a foreign setting…. we realized this formula was NOT conducive to success. Janna discovered the happiest customers had purchased their Friesians’ sight unseen from Black Sterling Friesians ranch!!
