First and foremost I want to include my win in 2010 with the dear Arab mare Journey. Through time and patience, over 100 days, I transformed Journey from an untouched 6 year old mare into a push button riding horse. Journey and I competed in the 1st Annual Trainers Challenge For Horses Without Homes and won Grand Champion, competing against 13 other very talented horses and trainers.

The following are references from clients. I just pulled these out of my email archives. I strive to have happy clients and happy horses. If you'd like to contact any of my clients directly, email me and I will send you a list of references.

Hi!
We just got done with our first ride! He did great we were out for about 1.5 hours. We w/t/c, did sidepassing, backed, and encountered some deer and did great! We cantered from a walk and stop several times! I'm so happy with him and impressed with your training! He neck reined very well!! I can't wait to take him to practice tomorrow and show him off!!
Thanks for everything!!
Vanessa :)

Hi Serenity!!
Here is Cutter getting ready for his first parade!! He did so awesome in the parade, didn't bat an eye at anything!! He did better than half the seasoned horses on our team!! I'm so happy I brought him to you for training. You did an awesome job!! You and your family are such great people, thank you for everything you have done!! So many people were in aww over Cutter. They couldn't believe that he was only 3 and this was his first parade and rodeo!! He walked right through the parade like he had done it a hundred times already, he was so good!! :)
Thank you!!
Vanessa :)


- sent from Vanessa, a couple weeks after Cutter had been back home.
Good Morning, Lists,
Sally would like to get Sally there as soon as possible. When can we deliver Sally for Sally? LOL
I had 6, of the horses out riding yesterday! I was so excited! I put Emily, a 17 year old, on Hustler. Emily knows nothing about horses. I told her that Hustler needed plow reining and to pull his head to the side to stop him. He went super!

I am so proud of that boy!


- sent from Linda. She brought her gelding Hustler here to be started under saddle and aimed as a trail horse. Later her sister-in-law Sally brought her mare Sally here to have some desensitizing.
Serenity, I now am in tears reading your last blog, what a wonderful lady you are. I am elated that you took a first in this competition. I am so lucky to have stumbled across your web site when I was looking for a trainer for Miss April, I could not have found a better horsewoman to work with that big ole sassy mare and fully understand her personality. I saw that same understanding in your training as I read your blogs with Journey. Congrats again lady, you so deserved this training honor, and the biggest winner of course was Journey, who, without you, may have never become the horse she is now......big hug from me Serenity!!!! ;0)

- sent from Lisa, who brought her draft cross mare to me for some refresher training. She wrote this as a response to one of my blog's on journeythearabian.com.
Hey,
I'm so sorry I haven't sent you something earlier, I've been so busy! Vegas has been great! I just LOVE her! We've been to drill team practices for over a month now, and she is doing great for her age. I was having problems with her getting too close to the horse in front of her, I had been riding her with an eggbut snaffle until the last practice. I put her back in to a mild colt bit with a short shank and she did much better. We did the last routine with a lot at a canter and she loves to run. She is sooooooo smooth at a canter, I just love it. We have our first rodeo at Carney, MI the first weekend in June and I think she is doing as well as some of the seasoned horses in the team. We still have some things to work on, but she will get it. I will send some pics as soon as I get a chance.
I am so glad that Vanessa sent me the e-mail about you having her for sale, I really think she is the perfect horse for me. She is doing great, and we will make a fantastic team. She has proven herself to me, and though we need to get more miles together, she is definately a keeper!
Thank you for the opportunity too have a partnership with such a great horse! She is such a lover!

- sent from Diane a couple of months after she purchased a 4 year old mare from me. I bought her green broke as a 3 year old and put some finishing touches on her before selling her. She's pictured at her first rodeo in Carney, MI.
Good Morning:
Had some time today and thought I would introduce you to our new addition. Hes To Dun Tuff, better known as Tuff, joined us this fall.
He fits in perfectly as most of you know we love to use our horses. We do tons of rugged, rough trail riding, we work cattle and also do ranch roping. We ride rain, snow or shine and love our weekend camping adventures that take us all over WI, MN, SD and beyond.
Tuff is an amazing horse (Thanks Serenity for all of your excellent training!). He is incredibly gorgeous, but most importantly has a heart of gold. He has trained for the Extreme Horse Challenge and is incredibly willing and athletic. He rides off like a good gelding, but has produced 70+ colorful foals!
Hope to see you all this summer at the shows or on the trails!
Sandie and Troy Brick-Margelofsky


- sent from Sandie of Hayburner Haven Ponies. Tuff is the sire to Vegas pictured above. He was 11 years old when I started him. With less than 30 hours of training, I competed with him in the Ultimate Cowboy Challenge and sold him to Sandie & Troy where he's gone on - with their excellent training and guidance - to live the life of a ranch horse and has even been to the Midwest Horse Fair, as you see in the picture.
