February 2014: Better Yet Equine is proud to announce the arrival of Lumiere and Saturday! These two lovely Westphalian geldings have just arrived from Germany. Hand-picked by Henriette in Europe, we expect great things for them. Lumiere has been a dressage horse, but with his powerhouse, flat-kneed movement and great form over a jump we think he will be a spectacular hunter. Saturday will be started under saddle at Better Yet, as he is just 3. With his looks and temperment, he is going to be a phenomenal prospect. We are so thrilled to have both these lovely geldings in our program! For more information about Lumiere or Saturday, please contact Henriette.

Summer 2011: Better Yet Equine wishes the very best to two special clients who are relocating. Colleen Cunningham (former owner of Native Relic) has moved to Denver, Colorado--we look forward to a Better Yet ski trip! Dr. Stephanie Meyer, owner of Luke and Raleigh, has moved home to the Pacific Northwest and "the boys" have gone to join her in Washington. Everyone at Better Yet Equine will miss these two special women very much, and we wish them the very best in their new homes.
