I am pleased to introduce Sita Euverman, TF Miniature Horses' trainer! She began at my farm a few months ago, and is now my right-hand woman there. Sita has been working her entire life with horses and competed as a child in cross country, jumping, and dressage shows, before she decided to pursue a career in the equestrian industry. She went to the Euqestrian Center in Deurne/NL and successfully passed her final examination as a "adjunct instructeur bedrijfsleider." The following years Sita worked at an international jumping barn, where she gained a lot of experience in working young horses and top sport jumpers, as well as taking care of international clients.To complete her knowlege, she went to the USA to work for 2 years at an well-known training barn for hunters in Florida.
When she came back to the Netherlands, I asked her in 2009 to help me with my miniature horses at the big horse fair "Equitana". We were a perfect team, and of course I asked her to come work at my farm. When she started working with my horses they captured her heart by storm and she enjoys everyday she works with them. Her trustworthy nature, knowlege, and honesty make her not only a high skilled employee, but also a good friend I can entrust with my horses and whole farm. I'm looking forward to a long relationship!
Watch out for the new pictures Campbell took of my horses!
Kelly was the official photographer at the 2010 AMHA European Championship Show and has recently done a photo shoot at my farm. She will be back in August of 2011 to my place! Mark this date in your calendar! You can come with your horse for a photo shoot to the TF Miniature Farm! Don't miss the chance to get some fantastic photos of your horse also!
