1. Tell us your search imperatives
You or your trainer contacts us to discuss your riding goals and describe what you're looking for in your new horse that would make the two of you a perfect match.
We try to gain the fullest picture possible of your abilities and goals as a rider. We want to know your personality as a rider– what traits in a horse make you feel comfortable and confident? Together, we quantify everything that's important to you, including age, gender, color, size, type of movement, competition record, breeding, and personality traits. This is the most important part of SWB's process, and what we feel is a key factor in the long-term success of our client and horse matches.
Once we have a detailed picture of that ideal horse and a price range has been established, we go to work to locate top prospects that will be strong matches for you. We spend the time on careful custom matching and our meticulous pre-selection criteria ensures that once you arrive in Europe, you will spend your valuable time looking at horses suited to your goals and compatible with your riding.
