I was looking for a nice upper level event prospect to bring along. After having a hard time finding much on my own, in the US and Canada, I called Courtney at the urging of a few friends who had dealt with her.
She found a horse in Ireland which I bought sight unseen trusting Courtney and her contacts. Buying this way is definitely not for everyone but being a professional I above all wanted something I could bring along and sell if needed. Courtney coordinated everything from tons of videos/pictures on demand, vetting, shipping, testing for import etc.
It was a huge leap of faith hoping that I had made clear what was important for me in a prospect...I couldn't be more thrilled. She is a phenomenal mover and jumper, has a super mind and is bred royally. She is everything I asked for. I wouldn't hesitate to use Courtney in the future, she made a process that could be very stressful and complicated that much easier.
It was a pleasure working with you. [We] looked for horses for my daughter at other places [and] didn't first push your own. Splash has settled down and is a neat horse. We are looking forward to many great years ahead.
Fair, honest, and straight forward. Good web site for information; good facilities to ride horses; horses were well prepared. Raven is happy and adjusted to his new home. We have been hound walking, and he is great.
It was a good experience - Courtney took us on a trail ride She rode the horse for my daughter - she let my daughter jump him, etc. I have recommended you to two people so far who are looking for specific kinds of horses. I know you will help them if you possibly can.
Thank you for the information about Last Hurrah, formerly called Max. I look forward to chasing foxes on him for sufficient years that my granddaughter, age 4, will be joining her parents and me in the hunt field. By that time Hurrah and I will qualify for a century class.
You were very helpful in making sure the horse was a good fit for my needs and ability level. You were honest regarding each horses strengths and weakness. Your professionalism and integrity were greatly appreciated.
You sold Jim Jam to me in December and I wanted to let you know how he is doing...This last weekend we competed in our first event together at Mayfest HT in Lexington, KY, and we received 5th place overall at open novice.
He is so incredibly awesome on cross country. He knows his job and is very good at it. His dressage has come a long way and he is doing great! Throughout the jumping courses he seemed to be telling me that it was too easy for him! His personality is just wonderful and I don't think that Sonja could have helped us to find a better horse! Thank you so much... I am in love with Irish horses and know what I want my next one to be!
Courtney is very relaxed and easygoing, but also very professional. She returns messages promptly, and explains, clearly and patiently, what is happening throughout the entire process. I felt that I was in good hands with Courtney and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a horse.
Riley was *perfect* today - my sister Cappy hunted him and we had a super a.m. - ran one fox for over an hour, in the Grand National County so there was quite a bit to jump, lots of rolling, galloping grass land plus trappy woods - he hunted happily in the front, back & middle, trotting or cantered his fences (whatever she asked for), stood, waited and was much admired.
Courtney, you did a wonderful job of helping me find the right match, the right temperament, the right horse. My partnership with Davey grows each day and I am so appreciative of his demeanor. He truly wants to please and do a good job. You were completely accurate in your assessment stating "he's a real trier."
Joining you in Florida to look at horses was time and money well-spent. I was impressed with your ability to stay non-biased while showing horses to me that were not your own. Your conduct was always professional; it was noted and appreciated.
I must also thank you for allowing me to ride your horses even when you knew I was not interested in purchasing them. Riding Lord Robert was the best thing that happened to me (besides buying Davey) while in Florida. That opportunity truly helped me regain my confidence for riding cross country and reminded me what I was looking for in an event horse. Thank you!!
Now that we have done business with selling and buying a horse, I can say I have no reservations recommending your services to anyone desiring to do the same.
I wish you continued success and I hope to see you at a horse trial soon!
Courtney was extremely courteous, honest, and allowed us to try horses out how we wanted. There was no pressure and she did not get offended when we disliked certain horses. In my two experiences, everything was done well to accommodate our tight schedules and our discriminating preferences with regard to what we were looking for.
I purchased two horses last year from Courtney and would highly recommend her for any equine sales or purchases. I will return in the future to purchase or sell horses.
Excellent. Very personal care -- you went above and beyond taking us on a trail-ride!
You were professional, honest, and returned phone calls.
I was so impressed with your expertise. The fact that we flew down there and were completely booked for two days looking at various horses of all levels and types was extremely impressive to me.
I have recommended you to several people and told them not to even bother looking for a horse in New England, when they should go through you. Courtney, hope to see you again soon and thanks for everything.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me in my decision and giving me mini lessons. Tobey is perfect, there is not a sweeter, more perfect horse anywhere! We are now competing at training level, and I recently came in 2nd place at my second training on him at the Middle Tennessee Horse Trials. Once again, thanks for the wonderful horse and the wonderful experience!
My experience was a good one; the horses were well presented and represented. No time was wasted; it was friendly and efficient.
Thank you so much for everything you did to make the purchase of Cassie go smoothly. You are an excellent example of how a professional in your field should run and conduct business! Hopefully we will do business again; I've already recommended you to others.
All my experiences were very positive and helpful. The horse we purchased is exactly as he was represented; he and my student are really becoming a team.
The entire transaction was handled efficiently and professionally. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. I would absolutely recommend you!
My experiences at C Square Farm were positive, professional, and productive. Courtney was prepared and organized which made our trip very worthwhile. Courtney and her staff were very patient and accommodating with our questions and requests for additional information.
We toured at least 3 or 4 well-known farms in our horse search and dealt with the same number of horse agents. Courtney and her staff / horses performed far above the others in all aspects. I would absolutely recommend you! Courtney was a delight to work with!
I had a great experience working with Courtney. We made the trip up from California, and she made sure that our time was well spent by selecting a group of horses that met our exact criteria.
Courtney stayed positive and always fought for my interests. Even when we had to do repeat vet checks, she kept my best interests at heart and always gave her honest and professional opinion. I could not be happier with Enzo, He was well worth the wait! Thank you!
We were impressed by the professionalism, which was obvious in the well-kept barn and happy horses. You gave us lots of confidence by taking so much time with us. Nice website.
Our trainer, my daughter, and I visited C Square Farm three times while shopping for a horse for my daughter. Each time we visited, Courtney showed us four or five horses. What was most impressive was the amount of time she took with us--she obviously wanted to be sure that we thoroughly considered each horse, especially the ones we were interested in. In all three visits, we were with her a minimum of four hours. She or one of her staff rode each horse to show us at first, and then my daughter, daughter's friend (who was also shopping), and in some cases our trainer would ride. We never felt rushed.
Also commendable was Courtney's communication with our trainer before we arrived--it was clear that she narrowed down the selection to the horses that were appropriate for my daughter's ability level and did not waste time by showing us horses that would not have suited us.
In the horse world, which as you know is often different from the business world, there are few people as reliably prepared and on time as Courtney. We were never kept waiting. Also, the paperwork was fast and convenient. We made offers on two horses, and Courtney had a contract ready in 5 minutes each time. Further kudos to her for accepting our decision, following a vet check which revealed a potential problem, to decline the first horse we offered to purchase. She was understanding and professional. After the first two visits to C Square, Courtney knew my daughter well enough to say to our trainer, as she led a horse out of the barn, "This is the horse you'll be going home with." Sure enough, he was--and he has worked out beautifully.
I said to our trainer that we should just plan on working with Courtney until we found the right horse, even though C Square is nearly a three hour drive from our home--Courtney just made the process so much easier than any other barn we'd visited. Since I work part-time, I really appreciated the efficiency of being able to visit and know we would have a good group of horses to see, all in one location.
I would recommend you wholeheartedly to everyone I know--buyers and sellers! If I ever win the lottery, I'll be coming back to you for two or three more horses.
Courtney, we are so very fortunate to have connected with you. I'm going to buy all of my horses from you--a thousand thanks!
Very positive experience; Courtney made looking at many horses a pleasure. This was the first time that we had used a service like yours to find a horse. You made it so easy and fun.
Fair, honest, not pressured, accommodating, and professional. You welcomed Katie to your barn for 4 continuous days, even before purchase, to take lessons on Alden and to learn the basics of eventing. We would definitely recommend you.
I just wanted to send an email saying how happy I am with Keough and what we have been up to. We got Reserve Champion for Junior Equitation at the Bucks County Horse Park for year-end awards, and we got 4th in dressage and 6th overall at the Fall Bucks County Horse Park event at Novice. We have also been doing hunter paces and local jumper shows. I am having a GREAT time with him!
Very professional, courteous, and helpful. There was a great selection of horses and I loved that you offered and took Tara cross-country schooling - that was incredibly helpful. We were very happy with everything. Thanks for once again helping us find a great horse for Tara!
I had an excellent experience with C Square Farm. Courtney was responsive and worked very hard to find the right horse for me - we tried many! She had a wonderful attitude, and high standards of service and responsiveness.
I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying Guyot. He is doing very well, being the good boy that he is and developing into an excellent dressage partner. He hacks nicely around the property and we have taken longer trail rides into the State Game Lands. We will start working on the jumping part soon! Thanks for helping me find him!
There was a very thorough showing of a variety of horses and Courtney was very good at matching horse and rider! Excellent customer service, very helpful with horses and hospitable, she even gave us great restaurant recommendations in the area. Thank you so much!
First, I want to thank you for all the work you did to make this possible. You could have sent him back and looked for another horse for me and it would likely have been more beneficial to you. You were patient with me for over a year, calling when you thought you had a horse for me and not being impatient when I wasn't ready or took my time in deciding. I would, will, and have recommended you and you may use my name and give out my phone number for a reference! My experience with you was extremely positive and, with all the people in the horse world who can't be trusted, it's nice to know there are some, like you, who can be trusted.
Chip is great - as Hal says, rideable but stretching his skills! As always, a pleasure to work with you.
Very effective use of time for me and my trainer, plus you had found two that I would buy.
Notion is settling in very well. I rode him on Friday before the cold weather and he was great - we hacked out and toodled around. I can't wait until I can trailer him to the indoor I use since the outdoor ring is frozen solid. I think he has grown up some. At the moment I'm planning on keeping him. I'm still very happy that I sent him to you because it really gave him a job and knowledge. It was very nice not having to ride a green horse, I think I can get used to this. Thanks so much and I will keep you in mind in the future.
I just wanted to let you know how much I love my new pony.....I rode her for the first time on Wednesday and just LOVED her!!!!! I get up every morning and go to the barn and ride her from 6:40 to 7:30. I just wanted to say thanks so much for finding me the perfect pony! I love her.
I just thought I'd shoot you an email after having a very successful rally and week of Pony Club camp where Harry was nothing but a star! We qualified for USPC Champs in SJ at VHC, and plan to attend.
Even though things moved very quickly and certainly could have gotten chaotic as a result, the whole sale proceeded smoothly. Keep up the good work! An honest horseman is rare, unfortunately. You are one of the rare few.
Just once again want to thank you for Ariel, they cruised around Preliminary at Fair Hill yesterday like they were going Beginner Novice. What a terrific horse; we love her.
I took Harry to a jumper show this past weekend where he really showed his stuff, placing in the top 4 in each round out of 20 horses! He always made the time and jumped clear even when I was giving him little support. He is really the best horse ever! I call him my Prince, because he always takes care of me when I'm tired, sick, or just not on. Thank you again for selling me such a great horse!
Just wanted to drop you a line about how much fun I am having with Spanky (aka Peyote). He has just blossomed this season. He loves the hounds, I can crack a whip off his back with no reaction. I feel like I can jump the moon with him, he is so agreeable. We ended the season up your way with the Cheshire, and he kept up just fine.
On my first trip up north to Virginia and Maryland, at least three people suggested that I try contacting you in my search. Everyone was very professional and helpful. The atmosphere was laid back, and I never felt like I was being pushed. The horses were shown well and the facilities were ample to try out a horse.
We expect to be return clients as we move along. We could not love Lucky more; he is exactly as described and truly wonderful !!
Robbie is doing great. He is really a sweet boy and I couldn't be happier.
Thank you for helping me purchase a horse of BMW's quality and training - he has brought joy and trust into my barn, feelings I have not had since my most beloved horse Bixley died in 2007.
Website was very good and helpful. Helped to make hotel reservations and travel plans. I would recommend you. Thanks for having many horses to ride for comparison.
Thanks so much for your help in getting this horse. You are definitely on my referrals list now. I love the way you handle things and it's easy to see why you are successful.
We rode Chase at home yesterday and I thought he went even better than he did for Zoe when we were there. We are so excited about him!
Thank you for the expertise and guidance in the purchase of Ringwood Murphy for our daughter, Madi.
After many failed attempts to find a horse, including numerous plane trips and vet checks, we came to you in South Carolina with reservations. Our trainer, Robyn Fisher Nash, was sure you would have choices for us to make. We were so pleasantly surprise to have the opportunity to have so many horses that were candidates for our daughter.
It was refreshing to have horses that were physically sound, well-trained and such a wide range of prices. Additionally, the owners or trainers were available for us to meet and talk to.
It has been a month that we have had Ringwood Murphy at our barn, he has adjusted easily, he is everything we wanted for our daughter and she is excited to finally have her perfect horse.
Thank you for your patience and the pleasant experience in the purchase of our first horse.
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what we think about our experience working with you on our search for horses for our new Little Pond Farm.
I found you quite by accident when looking on line for horses. I saw a nice horse and called you. You were easy to talk to right off the bat. You made me comfortable even though I didn't have a clear idea of what kind of horses would be right for my husband and me. You invited me down and I thought what could I lose??? The whole experience was educational, efficient and fun. Not only have we found horses we love, but we have made a terrific friend who has opened a whole new world of eventing for us. What fun Aiken was! You worked hard to make our experience one that taught us a lot, gave us more confidence and one that we just had fun with.
Now we have two great, new horses thanks to you and we are so excited. We have already recommended you to several other horse people. Horse dealers in general don't have a terrific reputation, but you aren't a horse dealer - you are more like an advocate for the sport who takes pride in and enjoys finding the perfect match of horse and rider. You did that for us and we are grateful. Thank you!
This was one stop horse shopping at its best. We would recommend that everyone should start their horse shopping at C Square Farm.
I also just wanted to thank you for everything. You have been wonderful, and I really appreciate all your hard work that went into making this purchase work. Would never have been able to find him without you!!
You really make the process of horse shopping so much easier, and I will definitely keep coming back whenever I need a new one (hopefully not for a while...haha). Thanks again so much.
I had a wonderful experience with C Square Farm. Courtney was very supportive and responsive to questions I had about the horses. She was willing to help me in every way to make sure I found the right horse. Her support staff were very friendly and helpful as well. A great team.
All my questions were answered. Opportunities were presented to try the horse in all aspects of intended use. Multiple mounts were offered for trial. A willingness to speak and meet with existing trainers and respond to boarding questions. Actually a willingness to respond to questions in all areas and volunteering information on subjects that were not asked.
Beautiful location. Professionally run facility. Great people!
I think you are really good at seeing horses for what they are and what they can do. This is what I observed from my experience with you. You knew who he was and what I wanted and then made the match. You are matter of fact and I really appreciate that as well about you. I would totally recommend you to anyone looking to buy a horse. In fact I would almost insist that someone talk to you before they begin to try [horses.]
This journey has been exciting, scary, hopeful, expensive, and fun. You were such an integral part of this experience being enjoyable. I never worried about Harlee in your care and can never express our gratitude. Please stay in touch, we love you as part of our extended horse family.
Courtney was very knowledgeable and a good communicator. Trying the horse was easy and comfortable. Your operation was friendly and professional.
I'm really glad that you strongly encouraged me to come out to see Jerry. I was initially reluctant because it was a Friday afternoon and I'd have a three hour drive in traffic after working a full day. After thinking for a bit I figured what did I have to lose? I'm so glad I made the trip and stayed in the area for a second ride the next day. Jerry is an incredible horse. He is super smart, sane and a blast to ride. He garners compliments from spectators and judges alike wherever we go. Not only that, but in less than six weeks he has qualified for AEC at Novice (open) in very competitive company! Everyone at the barn says he is a really good match for me. I'm very happy with the purchase.
Courtney, working with you was a good experience. I think I told you that I really appreciate your prompt responses to all my emails/texts/calls. I was astonished during this most recent horse search how few people even return messages. I also feel as though you are very well connected. You know tons of people and seem to have a very good track record of matching buyers and sellers.
4 horses were shown to me at C Square over the course of about 2 months. I had the opportunity to watch them ridden as well as ride them myself in my own saddle.
I was made to feel comfortable by Courtney and her staff in the potentially awkward position of making an informed choice about my first horse. I felt Courtney and others at the farm were honest answering my questions and provided me with the information I needed to feel confident in my choice.
I would highly recommend you!
I just wanted to take the time to write you to thank you for helping me find Bella last year. We made the long trek to compete at AEC’s this past weekend at Novice and she was a super star! We finished on our dressage score (in 17th) and I couldn't be happier with her. We are moving up to training at our next show and I look forward to our partnership continuing to grow. Thanks for helping me find my perfect match!
I know you probably see regular updates online, but I wanted to send a Thank You for matching me up with Clementine. She is absolutely perfect for me! You knew exactly what I was looking for, and I really appreciate how you went out of your way to make sure I could get up there to see her before you left for Aiken. I don't think there could be a more perfect match for me, and I love her more each day I have her! Thank you so much!
Courtney, I wanted to thank you again for everything you did during my latest horse shopping experience. Your recommendation of Tim Frommer and Brookledge was wonderful- I couldn’t be happier with them. Demon ended up coming in a box stall, he was relaxed and content when he arrived, and they were spot on with their departure/arrival times. Thank you for helping to arrange the PPE- I was also very happy with Dr. Thompson- she was super nice, patient, and easy to work with. Thank you for trailering Demon to Sandy Hills for me to try him XC… Of course, you are always a consummate professional, and you make the horse-shopping a much less painless experience (in fact, it can actually be fun!). I really appreciate all that you do to make the process go so smoothly…
Meighan and I had a great time with you- thank you for your hospitality by including us at Paradise Farms HT and at your barn. And thank you very much for the opportunity to hack your awesome horse, Vendi! Meighan also loved Grace- she said that was a mare definitely worth having (she is not a mare person)! We really had fun.
I wish you the best of luck this year with Tag, Hope, Vendi, and the rest of event team (including all of your spectacular homebreds!)! I’ll be following along on EN and your website for the latest…. And I’ll keep you informed on how Demon and Kilo and Lee and I are doing.
Thanks again for everything,
