Like many people, I was sceptical about buying online, untried and unseen. Most people thought I was taking a big risk and I admit to feeling nervous, but after failed viewings close to home, we’d almost given up. Then a friend recommended IrishSport Equine and we were addicted to looking at all the horses online! We saw Mary, watched her video lots of times and decided that she could be a match. After speaking to Gerty and emailing lots of questions, we took the plunge. Mary arrived nearly a year ago and we haven’t looked back. She took awhile to settle and we had some fleeting moments where I thought i’d made a bad decision, but she has been absolutely amazing overall. She has never put a foot wrong and she has safely carried my 15 year old daughter around x-country courses, show jump arenas and across open plains. They stayed at riding club camp winning the jumping classes and had lots of fun through the summer. Mary is with us for life, but if I had to buy again I would definitely come back to Gerty.
