“Lotty’s dedication & knowledge of finding appropriate horses is very evident from the moment you meet her.”

“Having just purchased a wonderful 3 year old KWPN stallion through Lotty Chatterton at Suspension Dressage Sales, I would be more than happy to recommend this as a way of sourcing a horse professionally, quickly and efficiently. Lotty’s dedication and knowledge in the field of finding appropriate horses is very evident from the moment you meet her. She listens and is very good at understanding individual requirements and identifying the right type of horses to look at, critically within budget. The whole experience of going to Holland, touring the yards and seeing lots of horses in a short space of time ,was both enjoyable and educational. It is definitely the way I would look to buy another horse in the future. Our rider, Laura Hill who accompanied us on the trip, would also have no hesitation in recommending Suspension Dressage Sales to other prospective buyers.”

“Lotty showed me a selection of incredible Advanced horses (any of which I could have taken home!).”

“At the beginning of the year I approached Suspension Dressage Sales to help me find my next horse. Lotty was so helpful and spent a lot of time & effort in establishing what I was looking for. I travelled to Holland with Lotty who showed me a selection of incredible Advanced horses (any of which I could have taken home!) and then made the vetting, buying & transport so easy thanks to all her help. I now have the most beautiful 10 year old Johnson gelding who is everything I wanted and more! This weekend we won our first PSG together and the future is bright. Huge, huge thanks to Lotty & Suspension Dressage sales for their fantastic, dedicated service.”

“Thank you, Lotty, for bringing my Dreamy pie into my life. He is my unicorn!”

“As a busy professional teaching many clinics throughout the year, running my own large training stable and competing, it has become more and more challenging to carve out time to go shopping for horses for my clients, not to mention, me. While I was shopping for a unicorn for a client to no avail in the US, I decided it was time to find my next partner.

I spent a few weeks scanning the US for a new youngster for me but kept finding that the youngsters Lotty advertised sparked my interest much more. After our initial phone conversation and the emailed list of horses that checked the boxes for both my client and me, my friend and I made arrangements to meet Lotty and try the horses she represented.

What a wonderful experience we had! Not only were the horses incredibly well matched to my requirements lists, but the way that Lotty conducts business is exceptionally professional, respectful and transparent. She arranged everything from hotel stays to meals and transportation, so all we had to do was show up on time…that’s service!

We were there 10 days and in the end I brought home 3 horses, all unicorns! The 2.5 year old I got for me is simply incredible. He is exactly what I’ve always dreamed of having. The other two geldings I found for two different clients who are also in love with their unicorns. It’s important to note that my clients’ shopping lists were not easy to fulfill. I’d only found a handful of horses that met the criteria in the states, but Lotty kept us very busy trying appropriate horses, including some that weren’t even listed for sale yet!

I have already recommended to several clients who are beginning to shop, to find out what Lotty has to offer. I am completely confident that people will not be disappointed when working with Lotty.”

“Buying a new horse can be stressful, but with Suspension Dressage, it was an amazing experience and to top it all I’ve got my dream horse!!”

From start to finish dealing with Lotty Chatterton from Suspension Dressage has been nothing but a pleasure. I had been looking for a dressage horse for months and covered several hundred miles with no success. Lotty’s name had come up a few times, so I bit the bullet and organised to travel to Holland to see 10 horses picked out for me with my criteria over 2 days !!

Lotty was completely professional from the moment she met us at the airport, what a few days, meeting great people and stunning horses, what a choice, I found my perfect match on day one and tried him again on day two!

Lotty organised everything from the trip, the vetting and transport! No question was too much and attention to detail was second to none! Having had bad experiences in the past I was a nervous buyer, nothing was too much trouble!!

“So much choice available & the ability to see & try them all within a couple of days.”

“I contacted Lotty in January 2017 after months of searching for a dressage horse in the UK. We talked at length about the kind of horse I would like…….ideally an advanced gelding, nice paces, no older than 10 years, a known track record that had competed, no previous injuries, suitable for an amateur rider that would hack safely on his own. I guess this would be many people’s wish list. 

Because of my timescales, I gave Lotty just two weeks’ notice, which initially I thought would be too short, she assured me however that would be fine. I travelled to Holland with my trainer in February 2017. We were met at our hotel by a member of Lotty’s Dutch team, she was a delight. We spent 2 days working through a very organised itinerary and saw 11 horses all of good quality. I made my selection from a short list of 2, a beautiful gelding by Lingh. Lotty guided me through the vetting and transportation process and was extremely professional every step of the way, she even negotiated the final price and also referred me to a broker ensuring the most cost effective cash transfer. My new horse arrived in early March and he is absolutely gorgeous in mind body and soul. He is a gracious gentle giant. We are getting to know each other, have had some great schooling sessions and am hacking him alone and he is perfect. I am looking forward to the future with him.
I would not hesitate in recommending Lotty to anyone. After the process I have just been through, I can’t imagine buying a horse any other way with so much choice available and the ability to see and try them all within a couple of days.”

“Gorgeous to look at and with movement I could not find in the UK.”

“Buying my horse through Suspension Dressage with Lotty Chatterton could not have been easier. Saw such lovely horses over my two days and Lotty organised everything so well with the vet speaking to me and transport people delivering my horse at time specified. My 4yr old is the same person seen in Holland, just as honest and delightful to do in every way. Gorgeous to look at and with movement I could not find in the UK having travelled miles around the country looking! Two days in Holland with Lotty was so simple and I found what I was looking for. Thank you Lotty once again.”

“The whole process was seamless.”

“I had been training with Abi Hutton for a couple of years and when I decided to start looking for my next horse, Suspension Dressage was recommended to me. As soon as I contacted Lotty any doubt or worry I had soon disappeared. Lotty was very attentive, sensitive to my needs and genuinely keen to help. The whole process was seamless, Lotty’s colleagues in Holland were just as friendly and professional. Lotty was on the end of the phone throughout the trip offering guidance and support. Suspension Dressage took all the stress and worry out of buying a horse. For me this was a trip of a lifetime and I am so delighted to have found such an amazing horse, it really is a dream come true.”

“I was impressed with Lotty’s honest & knowledgeable approach”

“We had been considering buying a young dressage dressage horse for my niece Amy for a while and saw an advertisement for Suspension Dressage Sales.  We were initially very nervous of viewing and buying a horse abroad but after a phone call to Lotty I was impressed with her honest and knowledgeable approach so we decided to proceed further.  Lotty made the whole process easy and very enjoyable.  Lotty advised us on the typical process and what to expect before we left and helped us to compile a short list of horses. We were met at the airport and taken around to  some excellent yards over two days, we were even treated to a trip to the Dutch National Championships.  We saw seventeen excellent quality well trained horses (many more than we had originally short listed) and Amy rode twelve of them.  Lotty assisted us with our final choice which also happened to be her first original recommendation from our very first phone call!  Lotty then helped us through all the stages of the purchase vetting, transport and even how to get the best rates when transferring the payment in Euros.  Amy has had her new  three year old horse at home now for nearly three months.  He has exceeded all our hopes he is well trained with an absolutely fantastic temperament.  The next time we want a horse we will definitely be back to seek Lotty’s help again the whole process was so easy, enjoyable and most importantly totally successful.”

“Lotty has a great eye & brilliant communication skills”

“I bought a 3 year old dressage mare, unseen, from Lotty last year. Lotty made the whole process very easy…I asked for a breeding print out and walk, trot and canter videos of the mare and Lotty organised and sent them the same day. She also sorted the vetting and shipping so quickly that I had the horse in my yard within a week. Her great eye and brilliant communication skills made the whole process simple and pleasurable.”

“A genuine, reliable & top class way to find your dream horse.”

“I not only have the pleasure of riding Suspension Dressage horses, but I have been involved with clients and horses that have found very happy partnerships together through Suspension Dressage. 

Not only does Lotty have a very naturally talented eye for a good horse and experience in bio-mechanics, but being a horse owner herself she is extremely thorough, sympathetic and understanding with the whole process of buying a horse. She is easy to communicate with a operates with utmost integrity. 

I cannot recommend Suspension Dressage highly enough as a genuine, reliable, thorough and top class way to find your dream horse.”

“I found my ‘dream horse’ that can full fill all of my goals” 

“My work with Suspension Dressage was a pleasant and very rewarding experience. From the initial contact Lotty was informative and professional about the horses I had seen on her website.

Approaching my search long distance from the U.S. I thought I may be at a disadvantage, but actually she did everything necessary to make the process work incredibly well for me. Beginning with selection of horses, organizing my trip, viewing horses, negotiations and finally veterinary examinations and exporting – Lotty was there to guide me through the complete cycle, removing any obstacles and looking out for my best interest.

I am very pleased with my new horse and with Lotty’s guidance and above all I found my ‘dream horse’ that can full fill all of my goals.”

“I have a phenomenal young horse that has the qualities I was just not able to find in the US”

“For anyone considering a horse buying trip to Europe, I would highly recommend Lotty’s Suspension Dressage Sales. Having recently brought home the horse I bought through SDS,  I can confidently say that Lotty and her partners and connections are absolutely the best. From the beginning I was impressed with the level of professionalism, knowledge and service that I found. Lotty and SDS know the business and have many connections in the dressage horse world, which is a big advantage to the buyer. For example, I was able to use one of the best equine vets in Holland for my horse’s pre-purchase exam.

Overall there are many reasons I’d recommend SDS, but one thing that sticks out and is super important to a prospective buyer is that SDS guided me through the process with respect and transparency. I always felt that they were giving their honest opinion and I never felt pressured in anyway.

I really had an amazing experience with Lotty and SDS- it’s something I’ll always be glad I did, not to mention I have a phenomenal young horse that has the qualities I was just not able to find in the US for a reasonable price.”
