obviously noticed what a good boy he is. I am excited to get our 4th (We
still include FiveStar) HW horse at Les Bois. Empire
HW earned his second 82+ score and best of all he is a fun and
social love bug. Today before his test he socialized and had all the
kids and some adults in his pockets, he always had people around him. I
love that he is easy and uncomplicated to ride for me too. In short he
is an amazing young horse! Thanks for your work and the care you take in

He is such a sweet and kind horse and always tries his best.

warmly welcomed me to their region. Thank you to everyone for making it
a fun experience. Fin was great the whole weekend start to finish. Some
of my neighbors ventured out to see what this crazy horse obsession is
all about too. We made a couple of mistakes in the tempis and the
