Horse Shopping With Reesink Horses
Eugene Reesink suggests allowing three days, to look at the selection that will be provided for you. Make sure to make a note each day of the horses you like the best. It can be overwhelming seeing so many nice horses, usually 10 to 15 horses in one day is normal. This is why, for the amateur rider, Reesink suggests a trainer come along to help process the selections. Plan your final day, to take a second look at a selection of 2 - 4 horses you wish to consider.
With plenty of help from working students, there is always a pile of white bandages, fresh saddle pads, and clean tack, ready to show a selection of horses kept on their property. Horses are often braided daily, as well.
On our visit, horses were cross-tied and braided with fresh white bandages, awaiting their photo session. There was a sense of pride and affection for each horse presented to us. Each horse represented a quality and character, as well as bloodlines that demonstrated the range of the selection provided.
