I wanted to take an opportunity to send a heartfelt endorsement and thank you to Roy Wilten, his family and his Netherlands horse sale barn “Stal Wilten”. It is a rare privilege and honor to have the opportunity to recommend someone who demonstrates the utmost in integrity, quality and professionalism. Stal Wilten stands by their product and reputation implicitly.
Roy in his trustworthy way, helped me navigate through everything, standing by my side the whole time. Roy worked tirelessly to assure my confidence, comfortability and happiness.
Roy’s communication was seamless (even late at night for him with the time difference). He was patient with me and my endless questions. He sent many pictures and videos of my horse and gave me every opportunity to truly see who this horse was. He even sent adorable pictures of his young niece feeding him carrots. I could tell this was a family operation and they treated their horses like pets. This was not your typical horse factory broker who knew nothing about the horse. After purchasing the horse (but before it was able to leave for the States), Roy continued to do all medical maintenance and top notch care. He did routine dental work and shoeing. Even though I owned the horse at this point, Roy found the horse needed a dental extraction. He covered all expenses while it was still in his care!
He was literally amazing!
The day came and my horse finally came to America. Upon meeting him, this horse was everything Roy said he was and more. He is smart, funny, curious, sweet, easy-going and reasonable to ride. For only being 4 years old, this horse has such a great fundamental background already. He figures everything out so quickly! His nickname is “baby genius”! I am a busy working amateur. I was even able to ride this 4 year old right away!
We could not be more thrilled. I am so excited for our journey ahead.
My European horse buying journey began and ended, as if it was meant to be. To this day, Roy continues to check in and see how things are going.
I love sending him pictures and videos of our special guy.
Here is what I can say about my experience with Roy Wilten and the Stal Wilten operation.
They make sure clients receive fair and honest dealings. They treat their horses like pets! They take great care of these horses. They facilitate this process impeccably.
They help make all arrangements including flights/shipping, medical care, veterinary examinations and necessary paperwork. They stand by their product and reputation to the end! They take huge pride in happy quality winning horses and satisfied clients.
I have the utmost trust and respect for Roy and his barn Stal Wilten.
This all started as a business transaction, but I truly feel I’ve gained loyal friends for life, in Roy and his family.
I would not hesitate to buy another horse from them! I feel confident in recommending Stal Wilten to anyone looking for a professional and trustworthy way to buy a top horse in Europe.
Thank you, Roy, Family and Stal Wilten!
