Afraid of shopping in Europe? Afraid of dealing with unknown horse breeders, trainers, riders and veterinary clinics? Here is the solution: Connelly-Hoefs Horse Search, a partnership, based on respect, honesty and love for horses, between two equestrian professionals. American former USET member and trainer Kathy Connelly and Dutch horse breeder and KWPN judge Toine Hoefs select, buy and deal in the finest dressage horses Europe has to offer. They search the continent for your dream horse, customized to your priorities, wishes, needs and budget.
Kathy Connelly and Toine Hoefs represent a unique partnership which started two decades ago. "I have been going to Europe for twenty years and felt like I was swimming with the sharks," Connelly reminisced, "I needed someone I felt confident with." Kathy Connelly met Toine Hoefs in Holland when she was looking for horses for her clients. "I was looking for an honest, knowledgeable person for myself and my clients. After talking to Toine, I learned we shared the same philosophy in training and in love for horses," Connelly said.
