Our Many Satisfied Buyers
I came to Heidi in 2013 looking for a special horse. She worked very hard to assure I had many horses to look at in a short amount of time and I did find that very special horse with Heidi! Recently I decided to sell another special horse, I talked to Heidi about sending him to her as I know how impeccable she runs her barn and training operation and how well connected she is. Well in less than 2 months Heidi had a very special person to purchase my horse, I couldn’t be happier and I know the buyer is too!Valerie Heckrodt
Now that Sterling has transitioned well in Colorado I finally want to take the time to thank you.
We appreciate it very much how easy it was to arrange an appointment to try Sterling, two days in a row. You were very accommodating, very respectful of our space and need to think and observe the horse being ridden by our daughter and her interaction with him.
The whole process has been extremely smooth. From the vet check, trying him out, through the process of buying him and finally when you prepared him for the journey to Colorado.
Thank you so so much for buying him organic carrots for his transportation, putting all his stuff in the big pink box, and making sure that all his belongings where following him in the trailer to the airport and then on the airplane.
We felt you were really caring for his well being and this touched us very much!
I do not have enough words to thank you enough for all your support, trust and patience during all this process.
These beings are doing so much for us and they deserve to be treated with lots of respect and affection. We could feel that you see them. It is heart warming to know that you are seeing them this way while doing this difficult job of selling high level dressage horses.
We are extremely happy to be with Sterling, he is such an interesting character, affectionate, and wants to please. He likes Victoria, this is clear!
For the moment he is in a horse facility were Sandy Hotz is teaching To make sure that the transition is smooth for him and that she can ride him and also teach Victoria until she rides him better and can practice alone at our farm.He already made some friends, and will be turned out with a horse that he seems to like very much.
When Victoria, our daughter, will get to know him better, and ride him with more ease we will bring him to our farm, where he will be living and he will be turned out a few hours a day in beautiful organic pasture. We will also find him a friend to live with. And he will continue to go twice or three times a week to the barn where he is at now and connect with his present friends.
We are so lucky to be with such a horse and thank you deeply for helping us make our dream come true with this particular boy!
Thanks for such a professional process and good training for Drago. I hope the new owner has a wonderful journey with this kind horse.Millie McCoy
Hi Heidi, Thank you so much for your expert job at selling my best friend and horse of a lifetime. It was heart wrenching to make the decision to sell Delaware. I felt that he could help another amateur like myself or a young rider reach their goals and make their dreams come true as he did for me.
I learned of Heidi and her business when I brought two friends to look for horses in Florida last year. I was so impressed with her operation and ability to sell dressage horses that once I made my decision I contacted Heidi. I made arrangements to ship him to her. I was confident she would care for him like I did and find the best match for this sweet and talented horse. Heidi and her staff have exceeded my expectations by a long ways. Heidi had a buyer before he ever was on her website. Literally, he was sold the minute his picture and bloodlines went on her Facebook page as he stepped off the van. He was sold in about two weeks.
Thank you so much for finding Delaware someone to love him and enjoy all his talents. You and your staff are wonderful!Kaaren Powell
Hi Heidi, just wanted to thank you for making the process of selling my horse, Nids, so easy. You handled everything very professionally and honestly, and it was much appreciated. I would highly recommend you. Thanks again!” Sharon Darien
We appreciate all of our wonderful clients and are always pleased to help meet your needs.
“My love of horses is indescribable feeling, These beings are doing so much for us and they deserve to be treated with respect and affection. It is heart-warming to know that Heidi Degele shares those feelings and love. I have, due to health reasons had to sell my last two dressage horses this year…Heidi took them on continued their training and then miraculously found the perfect owners and facilities for these boys over a short period of time. I cannot recommend too highly her skills, care, training…and matching the owner to the individual horse. She is the consummate professional, and friend to hold your hand through the process. She provides full service from beginning arrival through the transportation to their new homes. I have seen that both these horses are well loved and taken care of with showing in their future by their new owners. I trust her implicitly.”

Celia Doherty with Willem
Just wanted to give you an update on Willem. I renamed him Rustiano, you called him “What’s Next.” I just love him. He is working out to be the perfect partner for me. We just finished a NAJRYR clinic with Jeremy Steinberg, USDF Youth Coach and Rusty was definitely the star of the weekend. I am starting my journey towards representing Region 2 on the Junior Team. I have every confidence that with Rusty, I will ultimately reach my goal. Also, thank you so much for making the buying process easy on my Mom.
Sincerely, Celia Doherty

Remember Stephanie and Judi Chandler who bought Lacord… He has been an absolute gift. Great work ethic, personality and addition to our barn. In Sept. we went to Lexington to compete in the Championships. Lacord got 7.86., third place. He was the top European bred horse. Thank you again for finding him. We always pass your name around! Thought you would like to know about Lacord and can take credit for finding him. We cannot say enough how much we love this horse. Even if he never won a ribbon in his life, he is wonderful.Judi Chandler with Lacord
Take care, Judi Chandler
Hey Heidi,Donna Gafford with Bruce
Congratulations on your great show this weekend! Thought you might like to know Bruce had a fabulous weekend as well… Great scores at 3d level. Bruce was a star for the clinic. Conrad was just here and loves Bruce. He said he’s just the right horse for me. Next month I expect to be riding him in shows myself. In the meantime I’m busy answering everyone’s question about where I found him. I bet I spelled your name out fifteen times. He is very much admired and did not put a hoof wrong all weekend. I’m so proud of him and he is so much fun to ride.
Cheryl Carter & Nikki Taylor with Sancere
Everything is better than I ever dreamed! And Im not exaggerating. Have taken Sancere to two shows. The first show, CDI, we got a 65% on the third day 3/3 and second show 61% and 63% only riding him one test a day I have NEVER ridden third level! LOL
Sancere is so well behaved and is letting me learn very quickly, easily and oh so fun I’m grateful every day and my life is forever changed because of you and this adorable horse. My dressage life of 10 years has always been nothing but frustrating, disappointing, confusing and sad until Sancere… its important to me that you know how happy I am… I get compliments all the time which is something that never happened before Nikki says we are going in a PSG frame almost the entire ride now, doing canter pir, trot and canter half pass, tempis (4’s are easier than 3’s!) and play with those fun fancy piaffe, passage things too.
So to sum it up, I’ve had the horse 6 months, had never ridden above second level, took Sancere to our first show three months after I had him and we are qualified for championships and working on 4th and PSG Nikki says he can do it but I need show miles! LOL WE do NOT ever over work him, over drill anything and as matter of fact he’s getting a 5 day break this week. Hes earned a vacation. I love my horse!!!!!!!! It’s fun for me to see how well you are doing on facebook. I’m cheering for you!
Take care! XO,
