"Glisten will be 21 in March. I though you might like to know what a wonderful horse she turned out to be. I am an amateur rider and have been able to train her myself with the help of clinicians. I have earned my Gold medal on her and she is still Grand Prix competitive. Thank you!"



"Whatever (MVSH) did to (my) horse is amazing, I can just sit sit there and ride and not have to worry about anything, he's so good, he's so much better.
​Oh my goodness!" 

​ Diane


“Surrounded by kind people and a beautiful environment, the horses are very happy here. I have been riding at (MVSH) for six years and I have learned a lot from Jackie in clinics and lessons. She is a very good rider."
