One of the best experiences of my life was horse shopping with Rebecca Dudley in Europe. She is an absolute delight to be around – fun, funny, and smart! I gave her less than a week to pull the trip together, told her my budget and criteria and she worked wonders. She showed me wonderful horses of all ages. In a three day period we probably saw over 40 horses at all kinds of facilities from huge breeding farms. gorgeous show barns, to back yard stables. It was all well planned – not a minute was wasted. She videoed each horse so that each evening I could forward my favorites on to my trainer. By the end of the trip I had at least 5 very nice and suitable horses to decide between.

I choose a 12 year old mare named Laressa. Rebecca handled the vet check (which she videoed for me) and organized her transport. The whole process was easy and fun! We had Laressa delivered directly to the big Winter shows in Thermal, CA, where she proceeded to instantly win at the 1.0 Level. Since then she has been Champion in the 1.10 division and in 4 short months I have moved up to jumping 1.20 for the first time in my life. Thanks to Rebecca, I had the trip of a lifetime and have the horse of my dreams! I encourage anyone thinking of going to Europe to shop for horses to work with Rebecca. She is honest, has a great eye for nice horses, and is a ton of fun!
