"Mark is one of the most compassionate horse person I have ever met. My Arabian mare came from California to the east coast at age 20 after being a brood mare, he got her back in shape and turned her into a wonderful hunter pleasure horse and gave her the confidence to be a fun hacking pony. He made her transition to the east coast amazing with his knowledge of feed, supplements and general care always paying attention to her every need. What is most impressive is he listened to the owner of the horse understanding our funny little quirks that we have with our beloved animals. I thank Mark for taking great care of my Girl Choices who is now 26 years old ... not to mention without him we would have never had this special moment !" Lisa and Jimmy
"A few years ago I was looking for a riding instructor for my young daughter. I happened upon the number of Mark Washburn. What a lucky find! Mark and his sweet pony Devil are a perfect team. Mark's teaching technique is flawless. He was excellent in keeping my daughter's interest. He took his time with her and never lost his patience. Devil is a horse with the sweetest demeanor. He is calm and patient like his owner. Together they made me feel my daughter was safe and learning riding skills she would never have learned elsewhere. We really miss them since they moved to Florida! Lucky Floridians to have them there. Judi C."
"I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to board my horse for several years in Mark's excellent care. With his guidance, I experienced the excitement of owning a horse for the first time. Mark welcomed the many questions I had regarding horse ownership, care, and riding. I trust and value their expert opinions and continue to even though we live many miles apart. Mark cares for each horse as though they are their very own, and also value and appreciate each horse's unique personality and needs. I also had the opportunity to take many riding lessons with Mark. He understood my riding goals and centered my lessons, as well as my horse's training, on these goals. Mark taught me confidence while riding and I left each riding lesson with a new accomplishment and a smile. Each time I confidently canter across a field out on the trail, I contribute it to Mark and his expertise in horse care, training and riding instruction." Kristen M.
"Mark helped me become a more confident rider and taught me the skills I need to get me through anything my horse may throw my way. My 25+ year old field boarded TB received top notch care under Mark's watchful eye - especially during the cold PA winters. And when the time comes, I hope to retire Mo to Florida to live out his final years." Amy B.
"Thank you to Just One Look Farm for taking such good care of my 7yr old Thoroughbred mare. She arrived to you thin and out of shape with poor training, but within a few months of proper feeding was a beautiful, fit, and pleasurable horse to ride and be around." K. B.
