"I want to thank you very much for a successful combination of horse and rider. We are so happy about the horse you helped us to find for our daughter. As you know they went to the European Championships for juniors this year after only six months together. It has been a successful season. We are already looking forward to next season when of course they have got to know each other better. I also appreciate your honesty about the horses you showed us and your ability of finding the horse that suits the rider best. The service we received from you was perfect in every way. I will recommend you highly to anyone looking for horses in Sweden and I will definitely get back to you again."
