Hi Sue

Just a note to say thankyou so much for George, not only has he supplied me with hours of fun but become quite a "diesel" horse as I have been placed every time I have taken him out since buying him from you. (hope I have not broken my Irish Luck as off to the London South East Championships at the week end!) I know you have supplied me ponies since my childhood and would ask you to keep a look out for my two year old daughter as I know I can trust you to find me the right pony. speak to you soon.

 I got my fabulous Andalusian of you in July. It was love at first photo and he is the most fantastic horse of a lifetime, very reasonably priced for the quality of horse that I got. You arranged vetting and transport and made the process very easy with excellent trial facilities. Thank you, I would definitely buy from you again

Andrea

Hi Sue, Just to let you know that Minstrel has settled into his new home well. Olivia rode him in the Arena and he has been pampered and has been complete angel. Thankyou so much again. Eve

Just thought i should let you know that Thomas was a saint this evening. I worked him in the Arena and took him out for a canter round all of the fields, and then Steve rode him in the Arena. He was foot perfect! Thankyou so much, Sarah

I bought many ponies from Duckhurst whilst being in my junior years and competed on them successfully affiliated.
I then came back to set a challenge for Sue and Dave to find me my first horse. My mum being the mother that she is only asked them to find us something safe. This is a task that they completed with flying colours. My goodness this horse couldn't be safer!! They brought me back the most amazing horse I could ever wish for. The only problem is that she is GREY!! haha Last Line (Pigeon) is the first and last horse I will ever have to buy as she ticks every box there possibly is and carries on ticking them just to show off. She has taken me from British Novice classes to Foxhunters in a year! Also qualifying for 2 classes at Scope 2013 on the way. Sue and Dave have stood by me all the way through this and helped me when ever I needed with their great experience with showjumping . I can rely on Duckhurst for getting me the perfect horse that I could ask for and would recommend them to anyone.
Their knowledge and experience of horses allows them to match the perfect horse to the rider and oh my goodness this horse couldn't be more perfect for me. Megan

Fantastic horse's would definitely recommend a look - Melvin

I bought a 5 year old coloured gelding from Sue at Duckhurst Farm in April called Limerick and we are so pleased with him. We have just started our showing competitions together and already we have won, two 2nds and have qualified for a championship, sadly we never got placed but we were over the moon with him. We are having so much fun together doing show jumping and showing. I cannot thank Sue enough for selling us Limerick. We love him so much and are so pleased with the service we got from Duckhurst Farm.

Thank you love Erika and Limerick

I brought my wonderful mare from here and she has been brilliant competing and being placed in dressage with myself and jumping with my 13 year old daughter, thank you - Jenny

Thank you so much for all your help and support and for selling me the perfect horse. After only having Pixie for 5 weeks, I took her to her first show combined training and look how well she did coming first! She really is the best.

Thanks again

Sheila Whibley

Hi Sue its just been 3 weeks now since I bought isty from you. I just wanted to let you know she is fantastic. She settled almost immediately and is very good to do in every way. Chilled and independant but so well behaved and well mannered, a gem in the school and responsive. Thank you so much she is a real pleasure to me.

Julian

Hi, just though id give you an update on George (now Basil) that I bought 6 months ago, I cannot thank you enough for this pony! He has come on so much since I bought him, both his flatwork and jumping and I absolutely adore him. Hes loving pony club and NSEA and is loving being busy. We have a lot to work on but hes so sweet to work with (and can be a character at times which is entertaining) but I absolutely love him and even though hes only 5 he has given me so much confidence and I cant wait to do a bit of eventing on him this summer.

Connie

I bough my beautiful mare Kiara (was Bella), here in August. Im very pleased with her on how she has progressed so quickly and generaly what a nice horse she is. Would definitely recommend anyone looking to buy a nice horse to come here.

I just wanted to thank you for everything, you've given me more than I could ever imagine. Hope you are well and best wishes. XXX

Olivia

I bought James (preiously Jimmy) from Duckhurst 18 months ago, rising 5 years old, and this year we have done clear round SJ, 2 sponsored rides, 2 intro dressage tests (came 3rd and 1st), a Le Trec, level 1 training session and mini competition (came3rd) and numerous lessons and hacks. He is the perfect gentleman and I adore him!

Diane

Thank you so much for finding my beautiful Olaf. He is perfect in every way and the whole process of buying my first horse was completely stress free thanks to you guys. Sue went out of her way to make sure everything ran smoothly for us (even kept him a few extra weeks while I was away!!) put up with many of my silly questions and even helped with tack fitting! Really can't fault the service and if ever we found ourselves on a horse hunt again we will come straight to you guys. X

Kayley

Just wanted to say thanks for selling me Fritz (Cartier Z) just over 4 years ago, he is definately a horse of a lifetime, never thought I'd get one as good as my old boy! Especially as I never even rode him when we came to see him mu husband did, as I'd had a bad riding accident and lost my confidence. He is always in the rosettes, done our first ODE last year and got double clear and 5th. We are at Eaglesfield senior dressage chmps this winter and im getting my confidence SJ again jumping 90/1m courses now, my 5year old daughter rides him and hes done 50 pony rides a t a school fete last year. He is worth his weight in gold, thanks agin.

Emma

So pleased with my new boy Rolo from you, he is doing great, Sue helped us find the right horse for me and im having a lovely time with Rolo, hes really sweet and genuine. Very lovely people and very helpful.

Thank you, Helen

Hello Dave and Sue, Just messaging you to say I'm very happy with my new horse, you advised me well, he is very suited to me for what I wanted in a horse.

John Annett

I recently bought a horse from you (a few months ago) named Archie and I can honestly say that you described him perfectly, he has a heart of gold and is the most easy going horse I've ever met! We're hoping to get a few 100's in towards the end of the season but for now we're having lots of fun and cannot thank you enough for your help and time.

I contacted Duckhurst Farm as I was looking for a good amateurs horse available for all levels of rider, and after speaking about what I was looking for showed me two lovely horses, both whom would of been very suitable for myself. Sue and Dave were very accommodating and made the whole process of buying a new horse very easy. I was allowed to see the horses ridden, try them myself several times and bring my instructor to see me ride. I decided to buy the lovely Milly just over a year ago. She is everything that I had asked for and more, and has been a pleasure to own. Everyone on the yard loves her, and we have since taken part in sponsored rides, cross country, dressage and of course affiliated show jumping. Milly has taken me from jumping Riding CLub unaffiliated  jumping classes, to jumping our first newcomers this summer at the Royal Internation Horse Show at Hickstead, in just over a year! Thank you so much Sue and Dave and the whole team at Duckhurst Farm for matching me with such a brilliant horse. I would not hesitate to recomend their services to anyone, whether they're looking for their first horse or an advanced horse.

Kind Regards Leanne

Dusty is doing really well. We are the perfect match! Can't thank you enough xx

Alison

Hi, Long overdue thank to Dave for my forever horse I came to see you with Pene Grimster a couple of years ago and you persuaded me to consider a big grey horse who i was very uncertain about, you told me he had the perfect personality for me/kind, willing to learn etc, and that we could teach him everything else. We had him on trial and kept him. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to you - He is perfect, we go hacking in Windsor park where we have fun/gallop and let of steam. We do flat work lessons with Kristie where he works beautifully in an outline, we are now going to little local shows where he takes me to every fence, never stops and always keeps me safe. He really is a horse in a million. Thank you

Judy

I visited Sue and her team last week and tried a couple of horses. I can honestly say the visit was welcoming and all the girls knew the horses well to be able to answer the questions I had. The yard was well run and all the horses were well looked after. I would certainly give Sue a call to discuss your requirements as she has time to listen and match you to the correct horse. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely team of people who can't do enough for you and good quality horses to see and try. Hope this review helps to find more horses forever home.

I bought Henry a Piebald Gelding just over a month ago from Duckhurst. This is the first horse I have actually owned and was a little bit nervous from buying from a dealer but my fears were unfounded. Sue was a lovely lady to deal with very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. She delivered Henryfor me and I also bought a saddle from her at a really good price. Henry is everything that Sue said he was, he is laid back and the kindest horse, comes straight up to me in the field, loves a bath, will be groomed all day long and loves lots of fuss. I would have no hesitations in recommending Sue and Dave in the future.

Brought a young ISH (Cranford Gerry) from Duckhurst just over a year ago. He's exactly as described and a beautiful temperament. He went to his first county show at the weekend and he didn't put a foot wrong. Was as if he'd been doing it for years! Couldn't be more happier with him, now if anyone i knopw is looking for a horse this place is top of my list to tell them about. Was well worth the few hours drive from Suffolk.
