I had the great fortune to find the PRE horse of my dreams, Herrador, through Dawn of Andalusians Direct and her colleague Rikki. They both responded promptly and were exceptionally professional throughout the entire process. Many fantastic horses are were available and well represented by accurate descriptions, photos and videos which made the initial screening process very easy. Dawn and Rikki also recommended some excellent horses for me in addition to the horses I had selected for preview. They helped arrange great accommodation in Malaga. Rikki met me at the airport and we spend two days trying the horses I had selected for my “short list”. We really put the horses to the test and they all passed with flying colors. They were very accurately represented.¬†All of the horses I tried, Apache, Herrador, Odioseo and Benzu were of the highest quality and absolutely amazing, despite each having their own unique qualities and strengths. I even cancelled looks at two additional horses the second day because I had so many great choices after the first day. Rikki was very knowledgable and answered all of my questions and concerns. I can honestly say that any of these horses would have been a great purchase, and I had an extremely hard time making my final decision. I wish I could have bought them all! Dawn and Rikki offered sound professional advice throughout, arranged a prompt vetting, post-purchase castration and temporary livery for my beautiful new boy, Herrador. They are also assisting with transport to my stable in Barcelona and will assist with export of Herrador and my other horse when I move back to the United States in the near future. I give my highest recommendation to Dawn and Rikki and will absolutely go back to them again in the future if I purchase another PRE. Sincerely, Mary Padilla
