SO excited to learn that Emily and Quincy HW had 2 super rides with Jessica Jo Tate this weekend! I so wish I could have been there to watch in person, but Iím thrilled and so proud nonetheless! Thank you so much to Emily and JJ for such an awesome weekend for my big baby horse!

I bought Quincy HW through Irene in January 2017. The process was beyond easy. Irene shared absolutely everything I needed to know about the horse and even scheduled him to fly out in record time! I only waited 1 week to see my dream horse and he was everything and MORE than I had expected! Iím so thankful to Irene for bringing this horse into my life and for the continued friendship, guidance, and support she has given us! Quincy HW is a dream come true and I cannot wait to see what he accomplishes in his lifetime! My next horse will be, without a doubt, another HW Farm beauty!
