John Mark started Beluga for me as a 2 year old. Beluga had not been handled much at all and had only recently been gelded. John Mark did an excellent job and as history would show he went on to be a great competition horse. Beluga is now enjoying his new owner who I am sure will learn a lot from him.
I recently purchased an Archimedes mare who John Mark again did an excellent job starting for me. Annie is now working towards a dressage career with Brook Graham. I say 'started' as both horses came back well mannered with excellent basics but with their special personalities still vibrant. This made training more of a partnership.
