Buying your first Grand Prix Horse - Pavla's Story

Pavla, a successful lawyer and incredibly feminine wife and mother in her early thirties, does not stop dreaming there. She has a dream to compete at Grand Prix level on an Iberian horse. After consulting with her about various horses, I selected a dream team for her to view, these were the best of the best in Iberian dressage horses. She arrived at the airport with her devoted husband and 3 month old baby. Now that is dedication, and nothing was a problem. Really, nothing. She loved all 3 of the top 3 horses I had for her, the only problem was choosing.

She made a perfect choice - an international Grand Prix lusitano stallion, 14 years old, a ferrari schoolmaster for a sensitive, talented and ambitious rider. Riding an Iberian horse with this degree of precision and sensitivity is a bit like getting into a Ferrari after driving a Landrover. There are a whole lot of new, subtle and powerful buttons to work out. So, we designed a personal induction programme whereby Pavla could learn the alchemy points from his old master and merge the transfer of relationship harmoniously. What a beautiful opportunity - to spend two weeks in beautiful Spain learning from one of Spain's top grand prix trainer-competitors. This set her up to take him back to the Czech Republic and straight out to competition. This stallion is a professional and has travelled all over Europe, so he took it all in his incredible stride!

In Pavla's words: "I can't believe this horse! He is a dream. He is being such a good character :-))), I am so happy you found him and I choosed him ..... Thank you a lot !!! The time I spent in Spain gave me so much confidence with him and I really feel much more confident riding him. He arrived in great condition and the competition was just fantastic, he behaved as a true professor, and I had such fun to ride him among the czech stars :-)))). I'm so happyyyy :-). Thank you so much for finding him for me and for taking care of all the arrangements afterwards. Love, Pavla."
