Testimonial

"Glenda is a joy to work with and a consummate professional. She really went out of her way during some timing issues we had in breed attempts to PL Diamond Hill. We’ve produced some impressive sport horse foals by another son of Coille Mor Hill, so really liked his breeding. It’s always a pleasure to find breeders like Glenda who are willing to make an extra effort for clients." - Nanette Levin
