By Buddha – out of Dana’s Wedding
Bred and raced my Mike and Lyn Shanley, trained by Dave Donk, “Candy” came to live with us when her racing career ended. For 2 1/2 years she lived with us, waiting for her chance to go and become a show horse with Ellie.
A wonderful mare, all the best to Ellie and Candy.
We visited Valerie’s farm several times and observed her calm and nurturing training methods with the horses. When she brought Candy to her new stable, Dutch Manor in Guilderland, everyone was very pleased with the ease of her transition. I recommend Valerie to anyone who wants to give a horse a new life. Those of us who love horses can truly appreciate the value of Valerie’s programs- both for the horses and those who enjoy them in their new careers.Lyn Shanley
