About Lombardo Sporthorses
Lombardo Sporthorses is quickly gaining worldwide recognition for matching US equestrians with their perfect European young riding partners to achieve their dreams of competing at top levels of the sport in Dressage.
By starting each horse ourselves and handling all aspects associated with importation and quarantine, Lombardo Sporthorses eliminates the fear, uncertainty and potential disappointment of buying a horse overseas.
Our knowledge, experience and honest representation devoid of exaggerating a horse’s abilities, are the contributing factors that have lead to our rapid success almost entirely from word-of-mouth recommendations and repeat customers.
If you’re looking for a young prospect, Lombardo Sporthorses will provide you with the accurate assessment and peace-of-mind to make an informed decision, bringing you closer to your dream horse.
As horse owners, I’m sure we have all traveled hundreds of miles to view a horse, only to find something totally different presented on arrival. When we finally find our dream horse, we spend money on a vetting only to discover it can’t pass and the five people prior to you had vetted the same horse with the same result! The nice and easy going horse seen on the video who seems to have it all, within four couldn’t care less, and the most perfectly behaved horse that passed all your trial tests, once home chronically naps and morphs into something psychotic – all because the seller wasn’t open and honest with you. You are left deflated, out of pocket and with an unsuitable horse you wish you’d never bought. If this is you then you are not alone, and this is why Lombardo Sporthorses wanted to make difference, so we start all youngsters ourselves, we take them to different places and educate them as long as they need.
We do things differently; horses are unique and not every horse suits every person. We believe the key is in making a good horse-client match. This requires considerable fact-finding by us. We fully trial and test each horse before offering it for sale; horses with vices, lack of ability, behavioral or health issues are selected out – they are not offered for sale to our clients. Unlike many sellers we never ‘prepare’ or rap horses, use tricks, cons or clever edits of any kind to exaggerate a horse’s ability or make bad horses sound good. The videos you see are accurate representations of the horse. This gives you peace of mind, knowing you are choosing from only honest, straight and correct horses. Since we provide you with information to understand the horse, you can make a correct and informed decision about it. Once home, you already know the horse so you can make fast and efficient progress and, we hope to enjoy a long and happy relationship together.
