My husband and I have been clients of Todd’s since 2008. After interviews with several other trainers, we settled on Todd the moment we met him.
His expertise in many different disciplines, and respect for his client’s feelings and level of experience, made him the obvious choice for us. But it is his honest love of the horses that has made him the best trainer we’ve ever had.
Since 2008 we have successfully showed our horses at A-Rated shows, enjoyed trail riding and over that last year have starting training in cow work. Now, he’s broadened his horizons, yet again, and has successfully set up a beach riding concession that offers the best beach locations for all level of rider – something our horses (and ourselves!) are thrilled to benefit from!
More importantly, all of this was accomplished in a fun, easy going, happy environment, fostered by Todd’s kindness and love of what he does.
Put quite simply….
His horses are happy, healthy, well treated and willing.
His clients may come in as clients, but leave as friends.
Throughout the years, my husband and I are happy to say that Todd has become much more than our trainer, but a dear, cherished friend. We are so happy to be a part of the “Azevedo Family” and happier still that our beloved horses have flourished under his tender loving care.
