I have had the pleasure of both buying and selling with Avonmill. I bought Ripley from Avonmill a number of years ago and it was a pleasure to do business with them. We had lots of fun together over the years and when a new human arrival, my daughter, came and it was time to find Ripley a new home I knew that the only place to send her was back to Avonmill. Joanne and Jane were fab, getting her fit again and always keeping me updated with photos, which made the experience so much less stressful for me. They did a brilliant job and found her a lovely new home where she will have many new adventures over the years to come. I can’t recommend Avonmill highly enough for either buying or selling as they provide a 5 star service for both! Thanks again for helping me find Ripley in the first place and helping her find her new home!!
Can’t thank you enough for all your work with Minnie on schooling livery, you’re bringing her on beautifully.
Had a fabulous 3 hour hack up into the hills at Dolphinton. Kara, bought through Avonmill, is such a pleasure to ride. We managed to open a couple of gates but if I had to get off she stood like a rock while I clambered on from the gate. My trust in her and our bond gets stronger every day. I love every moment I spend with her. 😊😊
I got in touch with Joanne 5 years ago when I was looking for a new horse after 12 years out ofthe saddle. The whole process was very welcoming and professional. Joanne talked me through all my needs and and wants and was very patient throughout the buying period and knew before I did what I needed and was looking for in a horse. I bought Miller and had 5 years of fun and success with him. When the sad time came that I had to sell Miller due to my commitments with my daughter's ponies, without hesitation I contacted Joanne to help me with the process of selling him. Again Joanne was most helpful and talked me through the process of what to expect. When Miller was at Avonmill I had no doubt he was in the right hands with daily messages and updates and photos. Miller sold rather quickly in 2 days but Joanne found him the perfect home where he will be loved.
I would highly recommend Joanne and Jane to anyone in the market to buy or sell. The client will receive a friendly face and be kept well informed throughout the whole process
I contacted Avonmill with very specific requirement following a bad fall which had left my confidence very shaken. Jo partnered me with Bowe a 16hh ISH gelding with the biggest heart. I went to try him on two occasions before deciding to purchase him, and each time he gained my confidence back. Jo and Jane's patience and understanding of my needs went above and beyond my expectations. I've found my unicorn. Thank you Avonmill for your professionalism. Watch this space for updates.
UPDATE - Bowe is being an absolute star looking after his nervous mother. Can't begin to tell you how much confidence he's given me.
Many thanks to Joanne and her team at Avonmill for making the process of selling my horse Beau very straightforward. Joanne took the time to get to know him and through talking to myself had a good idea of the type of jockey he would be most suitable for. She found him a lovely home in a very short period of time but kept me informed at every stage and gave daily updates and photos on how he was doing.
Avonmill have made the selling process much simpler, faster and less emotional than a private sale. I would highly recommend their service to anyone looking to sell their horse.
I just wanted to let you know we are thrilled with Danno after only 2 weeks of having him. He has settled in fantastically and already showing his potential for future SJ! Amber absolutely adores him and is enjoying every moment with him. He’s great to work with in every way. Thanks so much to both yourself and Jane x
I bought Connie the Connemara x Irish sports horse from Joanne in August 2018. I am so pleased with Connie she is an absolute gem. I have just got back into horses after 8-9 years out and I was very apprehensive in the purchasing process with being away from it from so long. Joanne was fab from the minute I contacted her. She was open to vetting and strangles test which shows her professionalism in running a yard. When I picked Connie up she loaded perfect and Joanne gave me all current feed information and her daily routine which was great. I hope to have years of fun with Connie as she is a great all rounder and exactly what I was looking for. It’s hard to get a horse that is so good to have fun on and take to competition level so thanks again.
