  1. Dear Jemimah Adams,

    My name is Eva Boden, I am 15 years old and I recently gratuated the 10th grade. My 16th birthday is on the 16. August. Now I am looking for some experience before I am starting my education. On your website I have noticed that a german girl already works at your farm, thats what I want to do too. I got your contact from Alexandra and Sindri. I am looking forward hearing from you.
    Thank you.

  2. Hi Jemimah,

    I am interested in purchasing an Icelandic horse here in the UK rather than importing.
    I would be looking for an older horse rather than a young one, I am interested in Dressage and trained in french classical and also hacking.
    I live in Mortimer, Berkshire and have access to woodlands and farm fields with hardly any road work.
    Please could you let me know if you have any horses that you have for sale, the black horse you have out on trial looks perfect.
    Best Regards,
