"I looked at many trail-broke horses and I was amazed to find the problems of unsoundness, trust issues, & injuries in everything I looked at. Plus my time in looking for these animals and then traveling to view them. So I decided to find a yearling and invest the next 2 years in care and training to bring her along to suit me. Through the internet I found Trailwise Equines. The yearling, Catalina, had the body and temperament I was looking for. Darlene was honest, thorough and accommodating when I asked her for pictures and then to line up a vet to do a coggins test. Catalina is exceptionally intelligent, kind mannered and funny. Good confirmation and fluid movement. I could not have asked for a better horse. Kathy Epp, B.C. "

"In the fall of 2007, I started looking for a draft cross yearling. Recommendations led me to Trailwise Equines. I visited the farm a couple of times, viewing the yearlings with Darlene. Based on her experience and her understanding of what I was looking for, she wisely led me to the very right horse – a beautiful blue gray 1.5 yr old gelding. Not the first horse that I first drew to - as I was quickly drawn to a black coloured gelding – but to the horse that would fit me best. This integrity of sales – the desire to match the horses to the rider based on temperament – not to just sell the first horse that I picked in order to make a sale – impressed me most about Trailwise Equines. Needless to say, a subsequent visit to the farm and some time spent with the blue gray gelding led me to also understand that he was the horse for me. Smokey Blu and I are a happy herd now – thanks very much to Darlene and Alan. I would certainly recommend them to everyone!!” "

"We purchased two geldings from Darlene and Allen in the fall of 2004. The experience was very positive. They were very patient and allowed us to visit several times before we made a decision. Darlene and Allen were very forthcoming with information on all of their horses and were very honest throughout the whole process. We were not rushed or pressured into our decision. Darlene and Allen helped us find horses that were a good fit for us. We have been very pleased with the quality of the two young geldings we purchased. Both geldings have great structure and wonderful temperaments. It is apparent that they were well cared for and have had many hours spent with them. They are everything we had hoped for and more. Thank you for making our horse buying experience so painless and positive! We would definitely consider getting another horse from Darlene and Allan in the future."
