Sprieser Sporthorse has transformed my young/green horse, Cool River Birchfield, “Birch,” into a supple, muscled rising dressage star in only 8 weeks. I moved my ultra-sensitive and sometimes quirky 6-yr-old registered Hungarian Warmblood from an eventing barn on the West Coast to Sprieser Sporthorse in early spring 2019. Through the course of my hectic move Sprieser Sporthorse was incredibly helpful and supportive in developing the best plan to move him and in developing the right program for him to thrive in. Birch arrived to Sprieser Sporthorse two weeks before I did. I had significant worries about how he would settle in and function without me; to my surprise he didn’t miss a beat. The atmosphere is one where all horses feel at peace and relaxed. He settled in within a day and to my amazement he felt right at home like he had lived there all along. By the time I finally got there to see him two weeks later, he had settled right into his new life and training program; his confidence had grown and he was thriving in his new understanding of dressage. I work in a demanding corporate job so that M-F, I rely on Sprieser Sporthorse to care for him like he was one of their own – and they do so with consistency. Simply put, there is just no better horse care or training program out there. Each weekend when I arrive for my lesson I get such a thrill out of seeing how Birch’s topline has developed and muscles have grown. I have been amazed at his transformation from a scrawny young horse into being a more filled out and muscled through his topline dressage horse. Young horses can be very challenging and I know that Birch would not be set up for success to compete in dressage and aspire to the upper levels without the training and care of Sprieser Sporthorse.
