“Rancho Soñado is a wonderful place! The facilities are top notch, spic and span clean, welcoming and built around the safety of both horse and client alike. As I drive through the gate, I so look forward to seeing happy and healthy horses turned out for the day. Courtney and Sarah are very knowledgeable, gracious, and customer service friendly. The Walden’s love of horses and in particular, their nurturance and lifelong commitment to the Arab breed, is inspiring and exemplary.”

“I can’t begin to tell you how delighted we are with Jake.  After 2 months we have yet to find a flaw in his behavior or temperament.  I have never seen a 4 year old horse with the confidence and security this wonderful gelding has.  His breeding and your methods of starting him have proved to produce a horse that is so secure that the world is not a scary place-an amazing feat for a member of an animal family know for fright & flight.

April and I were commenting yesterday on how well he has adjusted he is and how hard he works.  She said he is just very intelligent.  But I notice that unlike so many highly intelligent horses who often only want to use that intelligent to test and try their rider, Jake does not.   April said that she feels he just wants to “learn more” and it is willing to do what it takes to do that.  I agree!”

"You can never rely on a horse that is educated by fear. There will always be something that he fears more than you. But, when he trusts you, he will ask you, what to do when he is afraid."

~ Antoine de Pluvinel
16th century equerry to King of France
