I have spent the majority of my life in the equestrian community enjoying my passion for horses. With that being said I have ridden, shown and bought and sold many special horses. Never in my life have I ever experienced such an effortless purchase. This was my first import purchase which I would have expected might be a bit stressful with the distance alone. Vanessa handled everything with integrity, honesty and professionalism. There was literally nothing for me to do other than make a choice and of course pay. In less than a month I had a beautiful, healthy boy delivered who was exactly what I was told he would be. I have had purchases in the US that required far more or my time and that were beyond stressful. Global Equine Sales provided door to door service with top notch professionals handling my horse along the way, with excellent communication. Even the horse transportation service that delivered my new boy was top notch arriving within a few minutes of the stated drop off time, which is unheard of in my history of horse transportation dealings. I am still amazed by the process, quality of horses that I was shown and the time and personalized service that Global Equine Sales provided. I plan on a continued purchasing relationship with Global Equine Sales. I would highly recommend their service to anyone interested but skeptical in the import process!

When I decided to get back into riding after 16 years, I turned to Vanessa to help me find the perfect horse. I was looking for something that was talented enough to do the bigger classes with me when I was ready but simple enough for me to start back on. So basically I wanted a unicorn! Vanessa was there every step of the way from the first pictures and videos through the last vetting. She even managed to get an earlier flight and worked with my trainer to surprise me by having my horse at the barn as a Christmas present! Vanessa has the knowledge and horse sense to really get a feel for each horse she offers and she knows how to make the absolute best match. My horse is now doing the big greens and derbies with my trainer and the smaller stuff with me and I couldn’t have dreamed of a better horse than the one Vanessa found for me!

We had a great experience importing a pony for my daughter through Vanessa and Global Equine Sales. Vanessa and her team provided everything we needed to feel comfortable purchasing from overseas sight unseen. Vanessa took care of all the details and the pony arrived quickly and safely. The pony was well represented and is making a lovely addition to our farm. I look forward to having Vanessa’s help the next time we are horse shopping, and would absolutely recommend her services to others. Thank you, Vanessa!
Working with Vanessa was a delight! This was my first import, let along first import without a professional advising me. Needless to say, Vanessa brought quality to the table. She was honest and unbiased in her representation. She made communication a breeze and I was impressed at how smooth everything went. Any requests were met without resistance. She handled transportation from breeder, flight and to my barn - flawlessly. Truthfully, I couldn’t be any more pleased. First of many future superstars purchased from Global Equine Sales!
It's tough to find a horse in today's current market, and even harder to find a seller you can trust. Vanessa made the entire process easy and fast. She was able to explain the entire importation process and always had an answer to our many questions. She was so easy to work with!! Vanessa made everything very simple and delivered us a horse that way exceeded all expectations. I would definitely purchase a horse through Global Equine Sales again and would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a high quality horse.

Thank you, Global Equine Sales and Vanessa Wade, for your kind and patient guidance in my search for a prospect. Onan, now known as “The Politician”, is one to watch. He has far exceeded any expectations and is such a pleasure. I am so blessed that he is mine and honestly am very grateful to you!
As a young professional just starting my sales & development program in the U.S, finding a broker who I could trust was the biggest thing weighing on me. Vanessa completely blew me away with her professionalism, patience, and knowledge during the long process to find me exactly what I wanted. She has a real eye for quality and puts the work in to source the right horses. Everything from the search to the contracts/purchasing to getting the horse stateside was seamless - she’s far and away the best broker I’ve worked with. Even after I had this horse in my barn, she was available and attentive when I had questions and went above and beyond to even contact the previous owner and get an in-depth response about some specific questions. I am excited to continue my relationship with Global Equine Sales long-term and would recommend Vanessa to absolutely anyone looking to buy a horse with confidence!
I bought a young jumper prospect from Vanessa at Global Equine Sales a year ago and it was a fantastic experience. She is excellent to communicate with, very upfront and honest and puts a lot of effort into finding the right horse for you. The horse I purchased was everything she said it was and more. I highly recommend Global Equine Sales and I personally will be connecting with Vanessa again to purchase more horses!

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your honesty and ease of transaction in purchasing Captain. He is everything you said he was and more! He has been Champion with me and won the classic both times I’ve shown him and then he won the USHJA National Hunter Derby! I’m so lucky to have him and so thankful to you for insisting he was perfect for me!

I met Vanessa when I was working at a big dealing barn. She helped me on many occasions connect with clients and sell horses. She has also found me a great amount of high quality horses for both jumpers and hunters. I’ve known her for years now and she has always been straight-forward, honest and efficient when buying and selling horses. She is absolutely one to trust and holds herself accountable with great integrity. Buying and selling has always been a smooth transaction through her, and her communication is fantastic. She helps you with every step of the client/horse relationship, vetting, transaction and shipping. I admire her work ethic and trust her whenever I need to outsource my sales or find a horse for a client.

To date, I have imported over ten horses thru Vanessa and each horse has been nothing short of wonderful. We have gotten a range of ages, from 3 to 7 years old, and all have been even better than advertised. Vanessa has really paid attention to what kind of personality and style I look for in a young hunter, especially when I am potentially reselling to juniors and amateurs. I cannot recommend her enough to any type of buyer, whether first time or experienced, and absolutely will continue to use her for any horse I’m buying overseas.

Vanessa is an absolute wonderful agent and seller to work with. We have worked together for a number of years now and I absolutely trust her selling my horses as well as selling hers, she is upfront honest, and we have had nothing but successful sales together and happy clients. She goes above and beyond for her clients, way more than any other dealer, seller or owner I have met.

I love buying horses from Vanessa Wade! She makes purchasing the correct horse extremely easy. When you tell her what you are looking for and what your abilities are, like magic, she has the perfect horse for you. I also really appreciate that she responds to texts and voicemails promptly. I am looking forward to working with her again.

Vanessa was a pleasure to deal with during our horse buying search. Not only did she find us the “perfect” horse, but she was so incredibly patient with our millions of questions and inquiries throughout the entire process. If and when we start looking again for another horse to import, we will absolutely use Vanessa again.

Vanessa is wonderful to work with! She found us some great horses to choose from and answered all our questions. It was a great experience!
Vanessa has a real talent at finding the perfect horse for you based on the criteria you give her, which is exactly what she did for me. She is so professional, informative, very responsive and she found me my dream horse. I will absolutely be doing business with her in the future!
