Simone Bull – Portugal

LUZ_BLANCA_MS-2“I am a repeat customer at the NVW stud since my first purchase, Luz NVW turned out to be so perfect that I just couldn’t resist buying his half brother Habanero NVW (out of 2 Calificado parents). I was looking for future stud stallions and competition horses who would not simply be mediocre, or happy hackers. I wanted champions who would be able to be presented in the Spanish and International arenas in morphology and Dressage, who could prove themselves worthy of improving the PRE, and that quality is what I got. I could have shopped in Spain since I am situated in Portugal just over the border, where top quality animals are within easy reach. However, I felt that Naomi’s stud was a secret treasure trove of PRE genetics that would surprise any judge of Spanish horses, and also improve the bloodlines further away from the UK. Naomi herself is extremely honest, discreet, knowledgeable and helpful. Three years on and she still provides assistance and knowledge whenever needed. The colts were given everything to ensure they thrived and handover of paperwork and shipment of both colts were conducted so smoothly, the whole thing was a total pleasure. In my opinion, the NVW stud has the best youngstock and quality stallions not only in the UK but also across Europe. She breeds for the longevity of the race type, which was most important for me, as fashions within the breed come and go, but success in my estimation is in the ancestry, and for breeding true to type and breed standards. Naomi has cracked it all and I’d definitely go back to her in the future because I know that her vision for the Spanish horse constantly evolves for the better over time, as much as any of the elite breeders in Spain.”
