When I bought Castana from Dawn, I saw this gorgeous little foal called Casanova who had just arrived in the UK. After a few months I asked Dawn if Casanova was still available and to my delight he was. Dawn sent me lots of photos and videos of him and his parents, and I fell in love with him. I had him castrated before he came to me and Dawn arranged everything through her vets, and provided his aftercare. When he was better he made the long journey down South to me. He arrived at the yard after a very long journey and was such a good boy. He settled in so quickly and was ‘the perfect’ youngster. An absolute dream to look after and handle. Then my personal situation changed and it became apparent that I wouldn’t be able to keep two horses. Dawn was very, very understanding and put her trust in me and allowed me to sell Casanova on her behalf. It was very upsetting to have to part with him but he went to a lovely new home in the Midlands and is now spending his time running around with other youngsters. I would recommend Dawn to anyone. She is a very knowledgeable lady and will always find you you’re perfect horse. She goes out of her way to accommodate everyone’s individual circumstances. What is also so lovely is how she stays in touch with her clients and the horses she has sold, and is conscientious enough to ensure that both horse and owner are happy. This is a breath of fresh air after having seen how some dealers really couldn’t care less what happens after they have been paid. Thanks for everything Dawn. Mary & Cas x
