Melinda Thomas and 8 year old American Warmblood "WF Splash of Class" on cross country at the 2007 USEA Whidbey Island Horse Trials held in July.
"Proud of our breeding program, proud of our horses, we were really picky when it came time to find someone to help us start our three year olds. Our vet recommended we talk with Melinda and look at her training program. He told us she was the best he'd ever seen with young animals. We found that to be true.
Melinda is the one person in the world we trust with our beloved horses; the only person we have found who can be consistently relied upon to teach them to be real horses.... Well mannered, versatile, partners...."
