Michelle began importing horses to Seattle from the Netherlands 25 years ago and has continued her European import business on the East coast. She has produced multiple champions on both coasts and has a very successful sales business.
Whether you're looking to buy a horse or would like to benefit from Michelle's training to get your horse in tip top shape to be sold, Michelle can help. In addition to available sales horses, Michelle has the local and international connections to help ensure you find that special match or help get your horse sold.
Michelle imported our horse, Toto, as a 4 year old and trained him from a very inexperienced baby. After a little over a year in full training, he and our teenage daughter have wracked up many tri-color ribbons and they won a competitive non-pro derby! Michelle not only understands what to look for in a horse, but she also has the experience to train them to be highly competitive A-circuit horses.
"Thank you once again for everything you did for us in helping with the sale of Frosty. We love him and this is such a perfect fit. You and your daughter were a huge part of why we felt Frosty was right for us. You are good people and we felt so welcome and comfortable with you guys. It felt like we had known you both forever. Thank you for that. We hope to keep in touch and have our paths cross again soon."
"Drinks is doing awesome and has settled into his new home wonderfully! He is such a wonderful, solid minded baby. Thanks again for the awesome sales experience, it was very nice working with you!"
"Thank you so much for all of your help with the purchase of Sporty. She really was everything you represented her to be. We couldn’t be happier with her or our experience dealing with you. You truly are a first class professional. On top of that I can’t thank you enough for all of your help, advice and guidance at WEC. You’re the best! Thanks for everything!!"

2017 KWPN Gelding
Vannan (DIAMANT DE SEMILLY) (KANNAN) X Cougar (BALBOUET DU ROUET) (DARKO)
17.3 Horse Hands
USEF # 5748228
McLaren is a gorgeous dark bay imported Dutch Warmblood gelding slowly developed by Michelle. Big International Hunter Derby/Grand Prix/Equitation prospect. He's a great jumper, hack winner, good lead change and counter canter, very broke on the flat, scope for international derbies or Grand Prix, and has the most puppy dog personality there ever was. Multiple clear rounds in the 5 yo young jumpers as well as multiple championships in the hunters, most recently in the young 3’3” at WEC Ocala Fall 1. He is willing to go in any direction, just say the word. Ammy proof and will take a joke, kind as the day is long. Don’t be fooled by his size as he is all legs and very easy to put together. Turns heads everywhere he goes, super temperament and pocket pet.
