In December last year I bought the beautiful CPH Floydtina from Nina and the rest of the wonderful CPH team. Nina and the CPH team were very welcoming and helpful with myself and my mum who had never owned an FEI level horse before. As we live in Geelong, Victoria we of course had to get Flo trucked down from Canberra. This was one big relief taken off our shoulders and organised by Nina herself. Throughout the whole buying process there was constant contact back and forth which is something I was incredibly impressed by and something I always thought was important. Since I’ve had Flo home in Victoria I’ve been more and more impressed with the horse I was sold every time I take her for a ride. Every day it just gets better and better as Flo is always giving all she’s got. Everything that Mum and I were told about this horse before we bought her was the absolute truth which again makes me happy with the service from Nina and her CPH team. I don’t think I could have bought a more amazing horse from a better group of people.

I’d like to say a big thank you to Canberra Performance Horses for the sale of my much loved boy, Bijou, who sold to New Zealand earlier this year. It was an incredibly heart breaking sale, and very emotional for all involved. Bijou and I started training with Nina since he was just broken. We sold him as a Medium/Advanced horse and we were training the PSG work at home. The ‘piaffe machine’ was treated as part of the team at CPH, and CPH handled the sale so smoothly ensuring they found the PERFECT home to help ease the heartache for me. I could not be happier with his new forever home in New Zealand, and am forever grateful to CPH for their outstanding efforts & professionalism. Thank you team!! ~Mia~

Dear Nina,

This is my journey of Romi and me.

I saw the ad for Canberra Performance Horses online, and fell in love with each and every horse for sale. Since I go to a equestrian boarding school, I wanted to find a dressage horse that would suit my ability, but also take me to the highest levels. Therefore, CPH offered three horses in my budget, and I flew from Armidale to Canberra to try out three amazing horses. CPH was kind enough to let me stay for around a week to have enough rides to make my decision, and to get the full experience of purchasing the most suited horse for me. The two amazing coaches, Nina and Kayla, gave me in-depth lessons whilst deciding on which horse to pick, as well as giving me advice on how to lunge the high performance dressage horses. This was definitely a tough decision, but I found my ultimate dream horse Romi.

This lovely and friendly experience I had definitely contributed to my decision of getting a horse from CPH as well as going back during the summer holiday for two months to receive quality training sessions. I’ve only had her for just over seven months, but I have already learnt so much from her, such as the correct way of doing all the fancy dressage tricks, but most importantly the basics. I am very excited to go back during the summer holidays with Romi to get lessons at CPH. I definitely recommend CPH for every riders ability, because they will defiantly find a high performance horse that suites the individual.
