Well I haven’t stopped smiling since the day my lovely adorable Jasper arrived. I cannot tell you how much I love him 😍 he is such a kind loving boy and has settled in so well. After months of looking I finally found him I just wish I had found Sian sooner. I would highly recommend Sian … totally trustworthy, helpful friendly and always on the end of the phone to help or answer any questions … thank you so much for my forever boy ❤️

5/ 5

I brought my horse soulmate from Sian many years ago. Sian was honest with me and about the mares ability and spent time helping me with her and getting some basics right for future training. Sian has a wealth of experience and a fantastic eye for getting the right ones with the right people. She has a heart of gold and only wants the best for the horses. I know exactly where I am going when the time comes for a new addition!

5/ 5

So happy with my purchase It was such a refreshing change to actually go and view a horse that was exactly as advertised I’ve had some really bad experiences in the past but not with Stanilo horses they were so helpful and friendly nothing was to much trouble I also like the fact they keep in touch with you and see how your getting on. I want to Thankyou for giving me indie she is so perfect and so lovely to see my daughter finally enjoying riding again and seeing her jump for the first time in 2 years.

Great dealer/ friend who helped find my dream unicorn

5/ 5

Sian has known I’ve had a rough horse life and as soon as my Dream Spanish horse came along she got straight in contact and gave me his details and I couldn’t thank her enough. She was so honest and gave me so much confidence in buying a horse straight from Spain! I have to say having him for 3 days I’m smitten with him! I honestly couldn’t recommend a nicer genuine dealer to people out there.

Amazing dealer and backing/breakibg service

5/ 5

I sent my young mare to Sian and Georgie for backing and they have done an absolutely perfect job with her! I couldn’t be happier after just two weeks at Stalino Horses my 5yr old has come back with a lovely attitude to her ridden work, I visited at the end of week one and was able to watch the next step of her education, the yard has a wonderfully relaxed feel and all the horses were calm and happy whether at rest in the stables/paddocks or in work in the school or out hacking, cannot recommend these lovely ladies highly enough, genuine, calm, kind and confident and extremely reasonable. So hard these days to find such genuine people in the horse world, good on you ladies I’ve recommended you to everyone I can think of!! Thank you so much xx

Most Straightforward Purchase

5/ 5

I bought from Sian in uncertain times during COVID-19. The purchase was made completely unseen and based purely on photos and description from Sian. The whole process was extremely straightforward, any photos or videos I asked for, were sent through, any questions or concerns I had were answered. Sian was easy to get hold of and happy to chat through anything no matter how big or small. When being able to view the horse, the team were so friendly, and couldn’t have done more to make us feel at ease and would do whatever was asked. Then when collecting the horse, she had been groomed and was brought out to the lorry. Considering the unprecedented times, this was by far the easiest purchase I have ever made. Sian has been in contact since to make sure everything is going well with the newbie, and is always grateful to receive any updates and info on how she is settling in. Would highly highly recommend Stalino Horses to anybody who is looking. If the time comes to look for a new horse in the future, I will not hesitate to contact Sian and her team!

What can I say!? I have known Sian for many years & she always goes above & beyond to find the right home for every horse she has. I trust her judgement & admire her honesty! As a family we have bought from Stalino Horses & Sian has also sold for us, keeping us updated at all times, making the process easy & as stress free as possible. Sian is my first call when looking for a horse & I recommend her to everyone as she has a range of super horses & is a genius at matching a horse & rider!

Sian took my horse to sell – it was a very quick, straightforward process with the money I wanted in my bank within two weeks. I would use her again if necessary.

We purchased our horse from sian 2 years ago and cant express how we highly recommend the team. From viewing to buying we had all the questions answered and support. We took our lovely boy on holiday to Tetford after 2 days of purchasing and didnt put a food wrong. If you want clear and straight down the middle no nonsense sian is you person.

fantastic dealer: bought unseen

5/ 5

I had lost a horse on the Monday and let Sian know that although I wasn’t looking properly, to let me know if something that suited me came her way. She contacted me on the Friday morning about a horse that was everything I was after. I have never bought unseen but did this time, especially as I had 7 days to return him if he isn’t appropriate for me. He arrived by 2pm that same day. Sian kept in contact the whole time and was able to answer any questions about the horse that I asked (within reason!) He has turned out to be safer than I could have asked for, he’s a sound and happy horse. He sailed through his weeks trial and he’s still progressing. Definitely a perfect match and a better horse than I could have found without sians help. Everything Sian described is accurate and true. I would have no problems buying another Stalino horse and 10/10 would recommend.

Sian sold a horse for me a few years ago. Kept me updated throughout and found the horse a good home. She made the experience very straight forward. I would recommend her to anyone looking for sales livery.

Straight forward, honest dealer

5/ 5

I bought my horse of a lifetime through Sian over 8 years ago, Sian was very straight and honest about the young raw horse and did not try to dress anything up. His temperament and attitude was exactly as described on the advert (I still have a copy of his sales advert and this still perfectly describes him). When recently i was looking for another horse i knew exactly who to contact. Once again SIan has delivered a horse that is exactly as described with a fantastic temperament. I would happily recommend Sian for anyone looking to buy or sell horses.

Sian took my horse in for sales livery. All the terms where very fair and easy to understand. Sian found my horse a lovely home and kept in touch with how she settled in. Great service and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again.

We brought my daughters second pony off of Sian , she was completely honest before and when we viewed him, she was on hand to offer advice when we brought him home. When it came to finding him a new home as my daughter outgrew him , she was our first port of call and the whole process was easy and she was upfront about everything. Wouldn’t hesitate recommending her and her team and will use again when we have to find my daughter her next horse

A dealer that is honest, believes and matches accordingly

5/ 5

I brought a big mare many moons ago from Sian. I had the opinion that she was too honest for her own good, and had no shy capability of telling you that although the horse may be fabulous, your riding may not. Based on that I thought it was time to pop and see her. Introduced a large mare and I have never owned a big horse before. She mentioned that the mare would put me through my stripes and I would need to change my riding, couldn’t have been more honest on site. I purchased the mare, must say we had our differences for the first month or two, after that she turned out to be the best horse I’ve ever owned for what I wanted to do which was show jumping. Sian was right in saying I would need to change my riding but I am so pleased to have her guidance on this, and continued guidance as the months went on. We became to be the best team arguably out there. I owe all of that to Sian.

5/ 5

I had a horse I needed to sell due to financial reasons and I loved dearly. I knew Sian from way back and she got in touch with me and said she knows people looking for youngsters. It was the best decision I made sending my mare to her as it made it much more painless, she knows what she is taking about and matches the horse with the most appropriate person. I sent her over on the Tuesday she did some pictures and videos and sent them to me and she was sold the next day. She is now being broken and kindly keeps me updated of her progress she doesn’t have to, but it’s kind of her to do so and I really appreciate it. Would highly recommend to anyone Buying or selling!

Sian is the best!

5/ 5

I would 100% recommend Sian! She has found me the most perfect horse for me to enjoy after years of not having the courage to buy again after a bad experience. Sian knew everything I wanted in a horse and found me the best match ever. Sian is very honest and trustworthy with patience of a Saint after my 3000 questions! I would put my full trust in Sian 10 times over! X

5/ 5

I know of a couple of horses who have been sold to Sian and were brought on by her and the team and then sold on to wonderful homes. Any horse lucky enough to go to Sian is guaranteed to go to a lovely, forever home. Sian also offers reasonable money for them which most other dealers don’t. Wouldn’t sell to anyone else now. 5* dealer.

Sian is as straight talking as they come. you know exactly what you will get when purchasing a horse. I bought Nelly for my wife and hasnt put a foot wrong she loves him and that’s the main thing sian stated everything we needed to know with no surprises to be found. Would recommend her to anyone who’s looking for that guarantee for safety and know they have the right horse. X

5/ 5

Sian is fantastic, I don’t think I’d trust anybody else to purchase a horse from. After a bad experience buying privately previously, being lied to and ending up with a secretly arthritic and extremely uncomfortable/dangerous horse as a result, I was scared to buy another but desperate to get back riding. Sian was aware of my situation after having my horse on schooling livery a few years back (which she also did a fantastic job of at the time and quickly helped me to identify his issues). She has now quickly found me the perfect horse, knowing I needed to regain my confidence and trust. I’m just starting my new journey with my new lovely mare from Sian but I couldn’t be happier, she has supported me throughout and I‘m feeling very positive about what’s to come, something I never thought I’d feel again with a horse! I would only go to Sian in future, she is extremely knowledgable, patient and honest. Highly recommended

Honest and Fair Horse Dealer

5/ 5

I purchased my lovely Irish horse through Sian, she was really honest from the start to finish, he passed the vetting and was at my place within 2 days. I originally purchased him to SJ and we successfully went out affiliated, then I fell in love with Dressage and trained him up to Medium level. I sold him a few years later and made a very good profit, as I wanted to continue up the Dressage levels, but this horse turned my luck around and was an absolute bargain! i’m happy to say he has remained in good homes ever since as he was a genuine diamond! Highly recommend.

Couldn’t get a more honest and incredible dealer!

5/ 5

So sian didn’t have any horses available at the time I was looking that where suitable for what I needed at the time, however she went above and beyond and was searching for the perfect horse with me, she would look at videos of horses I would send to her and know instantly if there was anything not sound about the horse or any signs of behavioural traits I wouldn’t be wanting in a horse. She then got up before 6am on her day off to come and view a horse with me, she rode it and gave me a little lesson on him before helping me make that all important and very exciting purchase! – I now have my dream unicorn and it wouldn’t have been possible without her! I would trust her 100% and she is so knowledgable and won’t offer you something that isn’t suitable for both you and the horse.

Hi Jess, thanks for this. It’s not all about selling my own horses or any connected to me. I’m more than happy to go and source horses with other people to try and get them to find their new best friend.

100% Honesty & commitment

5/ 5

Buying a horse is a nerve racking experience and you are never really sure if the you can trust the seller (a sad world to live in but fact). Sian took the time and patience to determine what I was looking for but even when I thought I knew what I wanted she would say yes or no (nothing if not honest). Once I had settled on the horse she looked back to determine if the horses past matched with the sellers information. Everyone considering purchasing a horse should have someone like Sian in their pocket. Cannot rate highly enough
