" I can't express how grateful we were to have Iris assist in the purchase of our Show Jumper from Germany. Not only did she help handle the purchase and transfer of the horse, she also streamlined the entire import process for us. We could not have managed an acquisition of this type without her help." --Cirsten Clark, California
