    Honesty, a Refreshing Change...

    "I have been around horses my whole life and knew exactly what I wanted in my next horse. I read descriptions of horses for sale on various horse sites. Saw several that sounded great, but the description never matched reality. I was about ready to give up when I started to pay more attention to Nikki Huiting's horses. I was skeptical at first as her horses seemed too good to be true, so didn't immediately jump at one that interested me, in part because she was over 3 hours away and in part because of previous disappointments. After looking at Nikki's facebook page and reading the testimonials, I decided to text her and open a dialog. I explained what I was looking for and asked about a horse she had advertised. Unfortunately he had been sold that day, I was disappointed. Nikki and I talked on the phone and she said if I was patient she could find the horse I wanted. About 2 weeks later I received a call from Nikki telling me she had a horse she thought may be perfect. She sent me pictures, copies of his papers and videos of him while she rode him on the trail. In fact she sent me so many snap videos I had no doubt he was perfect for me. I drove up to her Ranch to meet Rocket Man and everything felt right. Nikki was so honest and upfront about what Rocket Man was about and where he came from. She was very clear about what his capabilities were and asked me questions to make sure we were well matched. I bought him that same day. She explained the shipping costs and we set a delivery date.

    I've had Rocket about 6 weeks now. He has found his nitch among my other horses and acts like he has been here forever. He's gentle, likes being around people and is well mannered. I have ridden him many times already and he is everything I wanted. Nikki was absolutely correct about Rocket Man's personality and what I could expect from him. She has followed up with me several times since he came here and told me to call or text her anytime should I have questions. Nikki was so easy to work with. The first time we met face to face, I felt I had known her forever and it was apparent from the start she had a vast knowledge of horses. If you want the horse of your dreams, contact Nikki Huiting. You will not regret it. She is awesome!"

    Thanks again for helping us find him...

    "Hi Nikki, I'm not sure if you remember me, but I just recently came across your number again, and I wanted to let you know that Simpson has entirely settled into his forever home and his job as a therapy horse. I thought you might like to know that a variety of riders really bond with him, including kids who have been bullied, veterans with ptsd, a child w spinabifida, and a girl with autism. Just thought I'd give you an update on him and let you know he's really loved. So thanks again for helping us find him and thanks for being patient as he got to know us here."

    Truly accurate description of the horse...

    "Nikki is the most honest person I have ever encountered in making the decision to purchase a horse. I have owned and raised my own horses and have dealt with a lot of different horse people. Her ad was a truly accurate description of the horse I was interested in. Nikki was very receptive to answering any and all questions. She took the time to send pictures and videos beyond what she had posted on her ad to show that her ad was accurate and honest.

    I had my horse shipped and Nikki had a quote for me in less than an hour from MJK Transport. They have a top quality working relationship and I was kept informed with text and photo the whole time. Nikki is truly passionate not only about the horse she is selling but also about making sure the buyer is right for the horse. Nikki truly cares about horses and people. I would not hesitate to buy from her again. Very appreciative to Nikki and to have found Moses. Thank you!!!"

    Breath of fresh air!!!

    "I must say how wonderful it was and has been to deal with Nikki! She is an amazing person, I don't say that lightly! Never once has she lied to me or miss represented her horses in any way! I was looking for a nice quiet little trail horse and she just so happened to have my baby Nomi! After answering all of her questions, and there were a ton of them LOL which I truly appreciated each and every one of them! Any way we came to an agreement where I would send her 2 horses, I offered them both, in exchange for this wonderful little mare. She took such care and understanding knowing how hard this has been for me, I really appreciated her kind words and she has kept me UTD on where my 2 babies went.

    Nomi has a forever home with me and I will say this; next time I go looking for a horse I will definitely start with Nikki! If you have any reservations about her or her horses just ask her! Shoot, ask me!! LOL Even though we never got to meet in person, we talk almost everyday! She always asks how Nomi is doing! Nikki doesn't just sell you a horse and then sign off. She stays in touch with you! I love that!! Thank you so much Nikki for the time that you put into these wonderful animals! Hope someday we can ride together!"

    Reliable and honest...

    "I was looking for a nice well broke trusting gaited trail horse and I came across Nikki's ad. She answered back and we made arrangements to meet. Nikki greeted my husband and I and we felt very welcomed. My 1st impression was how nice everything was maintained, and her dogs and horses all looked well cared for.

    She took lots of time with us and answered all our questions. She gave me the time I needed to ride and learn about the horse, and actually getting out on some trails. It was a hard decision for me and I didn't want to rush without thinking it over. Nikki was very patient and I was quite impressed.

    The next few days she sent some videos of how well the horse behaves around other horses, again I was impressed and ended up coming back. Although 3 hours was more of a trip! I was glad for the second time and again Nikki was very honest and enjoyable to be with. I never felt pressured.

    Nikki could see I connected with the horse and she knew we were a match before I did. We left again, and she was very polite and considerate.

    The next few days she answered more questions and sent more videos and I couldn't stop thinking about this horse! I was impressed to see it was not just the sale, but Nikki really cared about the horse and how it is compatible with the rider. Needless to say we went back again to buy him and bring him home!

    All I can say is Nikki is very patient and can really connect with people. She even follows up on progress after the sale! It's a delight to know her! I would highly recommend Nikki to someone who is serious about finding a good horse to match the rider. Thank you Nikki!"

    Very responsive to my text messages and even sent me additional videos...

    "I recently bought a horse named 'Cruz' from Nikki. I was initially reluctant to drive all the way from Minneapolis to see what she had for sale. I was hoping to find something closer to home but the 6 hour drive was well worth it.

    The first thing I noticed when I went to her website was the details she provided for each horse she had for sale. She explained in full their qualities and their experience. She then backed this up with a video of each horse. I felt I had a lot of information about the horses before I made a visit.

    Nikki was very responsive to my text messages and even sent me additional videos. The horse I bought was everything Nikki said he was. She was very helpful in arranging for a pre purchase vet check and arranging hauling to Minnesota.

    I am very satisfied with her professionalism and have recommended her to my brother who is looking for another horse."

    Honest, has Integrity, and listens to what you are looking for...

    "I was preparing for my retirement. Looking for a trail riding partner so I could join my wife trail riding again.

    We looked around the Upper Peninsula without much luck. We then took to the internet, my wife's idea not mine, We discovered Dun Dreamin Appaloosa Ranch and Nikki.

    We reached out to Nikki explained what we were looking for. I wanted to meet this person and look her in the eye, not just fall for all these wonderful things written about Nikki and her ability to match rider with horse ??.

    Well she is everything people speak about in their testimonials. Honest, has Integrity, and listens to what you are looking for. We where fortunate that Count (Teddy) and I where a fit.

    He is an awesome willing horse who is just what an old Urban Cowboy ?? could ask for, Dependable and sound. We are looking forward to many happy miles on the trails together."

    I wasn't looking for an Appaloosa...

    "In my search for a trail riding partner, an Appaloosa named 'Zinger' came up in my search. I wasn't looking for an Appaloosa, I was more of a Quarter Horse or Paint horse owner, but I have a few friends that own an Appy and they are nice trail riding buddies. So, when Zinger's ad came up and I read about him and and other horses through Nikki's business, I felt I had to check into him and her.

    I spoke to Nikki a few times about Zinger and if she wasn't available, she always promptly returned my call or email. I found Nikki loves working with horses and finding them the right home, as well as finding the prospective buyer the right horse. She answered every question I had without fail. When we went for my first 'meet and greet' she was very professional. I felt a connection with Zinger and felt an open honesty about Nikki. I ended up purchasing Zinger and am very happy I did. He is as good of a horse as Nikki described and I am pleased I found her. We drove about three hours to meet her, but it was well worth it. I would recommend Nikki to you if you are looking for a good, solid horse and a well-informed horsewoman."

    "Nikki Schwaller Huiting is 2 for 2 for me. I got Mac my first horse from her in December and it was an easy choice to go back this April for Nash. Nikki is great to deal with, answers any and all questions and you can tell she really truly cares. Thanks Nikki!!"

    We told her what we were looking for & we found it...

    "We were looking for a horse for a very timid 10 year old rider. We asked tons of questions and Nikki answered them all. We told her what we were looking for and we found it in a horse named Buddy. He is the sweetest mild mannered boy. My nephew loves him. He is a great addition to our family. Nikki has even helped us with the sale of one of our horses so we could make room for Buddy. Very pleased with Nikki, thank you for helping us find Buddy."

    Once I found you, it was stress free...

    "Hi Nikki! I wanted to send a quick "thank you" for helping me with the purchase of my first horse. You made the process SO EASY, and here is why:

    I had started looking for my horse, knowing that I would lean on my trainer to help evaluate the correct temperament for me. After I started looking, I found many people described the horse's temperament in the ad posted very differently once they knew I was going to have a trainer with me to evaluate. The few times I found the horse's temperament/skill to match what was described there just wasn't a connection. I was getting frustrated. During the search I had my eye on a couple horses on Nikki's website. I had emailed about them, but as I continued to ask questions and try to get schedules together for my trainer and I to make the trip to Dun Dreaming, they sold. I was, again, feeling a bit frustrated and actually text Nikki something like "I do see you have quite the reputation, but it would be crazy to buy a horse without meeting it first, right?" She understood my concerns completely, but did confirm that her reputation has been built such that people buy from her sight unseen often, which you will find out when you try to nab one of her horses! I continued to watch and found another I was interested in. She was honest in that she hadn't evaluated his trail readiness (was more of an arena horse) so he wouldn't be a good fit at the moment. I was patient and as she worked with him, she was able to give me a thorough evaluation of his temperament and skills (which included trails!). Since he sounded too good to be true, I went and rode him immediately, knowing that if everything fit (surely it wouldn't) I could always put a deposit to hold him until my trainer could confirm his evaluation.

    When I showed up, I saw that the place was meticulously cared for. Nikki's horses and dogs were all well cared for and happy. Her 14 year old niece was there riding and helping out too. I rode him after they both did and loved him. He is EXACTLY as described. Furthermore, Nikki has continued to be as responsive to any questions or updates I have after the sale. She really loves her animals and matching them with good homes.

    Scheduling his delivery to the barn an hour away was easy and affordable. Her husband, who hauled him, was friendly and great with the horse as well.

    I guess this "thank you" wasn't so quick, but maybe this will help someone in the same position as I was in. Trying to schedule between my trainer, myself and a seller and dragging my trainer all over the state was stressful, usually disappointing and expensive. Once I found you, it was stress free. I really just waited for an evaluation to come up that was a great fit and jumped on it. When I buy my second horse a few years from now, you will be the first person I contact. So, thanks a ton! and sorry for the novel;)"

    Just leave the looking to Nikki...

    "I have just gotten back into having a horse again, and I wanted something that was quiet and kid safe, so that my Grandchildren could learn to ride. I found Nikki's web page and would watch it almost daily, and was amazed with what I saw in the video's that she would have on the horses she was selling. I saw a few horses that I thought I would be interested in, so when I got up to Amberg, I stopped in and talked with Nikki. I told her what I was looking for and she asked me if I knew anything about horses. She told me that all the horses had been sold already, but that more would be coming in the next few days, Nikki kept in contact with me, sending me up dates and pictures and videos of any prospects. She is very honest and knowledgeable and I trusted that she would find me the perfect horse.

    After trusting her opinion and recommendations on what horse best fit my needs and wants, she found me ZERO, the perfect horse. He is just what I was looking for and I could not be happier. Nikki helped me from having to go looking at horses that would not have worked out. 'Just leave the looking to Nikki'. She'll find the perfect horse that you are looking for! Nikki, was very patient and took the time to answer all my question and concerns. Thanks for everything!!! I've already told several people about her. Nikki, is not going to sell you a horse just to make a sale, she truly cares about the horses and spends the time working with each horse and evaluates them, before she sells them. I would definitely recommend Nikki, for all my buying and selling needs. She will make the best fit for both horse and rider."

    Give Dun Dreamin' a try, you won't be sorry...

    "I found Dun Dreamin' Ranch while I was looking for my first horse. We went up and looked at the horses and met Nikki and her daughter Alex. So impressed with how knowledgeable and kind they both are. Both to their horses and Newbies like myself. I asked a ton of questions and they always answered me and didn't seem to be bothered. I bought Angel from Nikki and I truly love her! She and I have bonded and I honestly could not be happier! Nikki knew I needed a calm horse and Angel is perfect for me! I would tell any one who is looking to give Dun Dreamin' a try, you won't be sorry! It was a 5 hour drive for us, but if you get the right horse it is well worth it! Thanks again Nikki!"

    Working with her was straightforward, honest and simple...

    "I recently bought an 11 year old APHA gelding from Nikki. I've ridden for years, mostly enjoy trails but also do low level eventing & dressage, I've had horses since I was a teen. I broke all the "horse buying" rules however,& bought a horse without seeing it in person or trying it out myself. I only went by Nikki's many photos, videos & her word because I was living to far away to do it myself.

    She represents exactly what she says- she answers all questions honestly & the horse proved to be exactly as she said. She evaluates her horses herself, gets them out & about & handles them herself so she gives a clear picture of what she has. Guinness has proved to be everything his ad described. Nikki also kept him for a small very reasonable fee until he could be hauled to our farm, which she also arranged for us. Working with her was straightforward, honest & simple. I wouldn't hesitate recommending her for anyone looking for a safe, sound, family friendly addition."

    She is genuinely interested in the welfare of the horses...

    "I bought a QH gelding from Nikki at Dun Dreamin' Appaloosa Ranch in March, 2017. Her barn is located almost 5 hours from where I live so traveling that distance was somewhat prohibitive. I had read the positive testimonials on her site and found Nikki to be very trustworthy (honest) and conscientious regarding the horse in whom I was interested. She patiently answered my questions and sent many photos and video clips. Nikki rode him daily, even in some very cold temperatures, in order to make sure that he was tuned up to both her and my satisfaction. Through her contacts, we were able to conveniently arrange a pre-purchase exam and delivery.

    I am very pleased with my new gelding and hope to spend many hours on the trails with him! And, I intend to keep in touch with Nikki to provide periodic updates. She is genuinely interested in the welfare of the horses that she advertises and subsequently sells."

    Our family got two great horses from Nikki...

    "We got two wonderful horses named Reagan and Mindy from Nikki. Earlier this year we had an unexpected pasture accident which required us to put down my daughter's pony. This left us with a solo horse in the pasture and she started to show heavy personality changes in the weeks that followed. We began searching for a new horse/pasture mate almost right away, but had several criteria for what we needed in a new horse. I wanted a short horse (under 15 hands), ability to put newer riders on the horse, not too old, and of course in a budget. Mix this all in the month of March and quickly I was not finding options I could be confident in. This forced us to expend our searching radius and we found Nikki who was advertising 3 horses that looked like correct fits for us. The first horse came off the list just because he looked too much like the last one. I was concerned with the fact Nikki was over a 6 hour trip one way so delayed reaching out as well closer would be easier. Finally, I reached out to ask questions and talk about what we were looking for and needed. Nikki responded quickly and expressed why her horses would be ok in handling the new changes. At this point, I decided if we were going 6 hours I would get 2 horses since a new horse had been being considered for summer. Nikki worked with us on finding a pick up time that could work so we could get home before dark and get introductions to the pasture and our other horse. She did ask about our trailer ahead of time and did mention that they were not fully used to a small 2 horse but they did have a little practice. I expected a little trouble loading, but these two walked right in. They traveled back wonderfully and of course took a little settling after a 7.5 hour trip home with a break. Our other horse, quickly wanted to meet them and after a few stressful minutes they worked out an arrangement. By the next morning, they seemed to be comfortable with each other. Nikki followed up with us on home they were adjusting and how things were going. The next day, we got a snow storm and the horses got to meet there box stalls. Nikki had warned me they were not used to this so after trying to guess the best stalling arrangements without moving the existing mare – they settled after about an hour. The next day stalling arrangements were changed and all the stress went away for them. Now they all love the barn! They are calm in the pasture as described but could they be ridden and handled separated as promised.

    After 2 days of getting them used to new things, I pulled Reagan in alone. I got her for my daughter. We had some stress which was to be expected but by the second day, she was calm and happy to come in. I rode her and she handled fine. We then moved up to letting my daughter ride her. She behaved well and was happy to be in the riding ring by herself. She even ignored the other two horses watching and occasionally calling out.

    Mindy the other horse we got from Nikki was for my wife. She got her turn to be by herself. Her pattern was similar to that of Reagan's. My wife rode her first, and I took her out the next day bareback. Mindy also got serious for riding and did not complain about the other two horses watching and calling out.

    I had been concerned about traffic as our pastures are by a busy road. Riding a new horse first time it is great to notice all the Motorcycles, dump trucks, and cars going by. Even the family on bicycles passing down the road. Both horses, take this calmly and I did not need to worry about them spooking. In the pasture they lay down and take all that traffic in.

    Our family got two great horses from Nikki and it was well worth the long trip."

    Thank you Nikki for finding me the horse of my dreams...

    "I had been in search of the 'Perfect Horse' for the last two years after the loss of 'Chief' my Buckskin Gelding that I had rode as my main horse for 17 years. I was spoiled in the fact that Chief was 'perfect'. Everyone told me that I would never find another Horse like him. I was tired of buying horses that just weren't what I was looking for, I had a lot of bad experiences and was afraid to bond with another horse. Then I met Nikki, she not only found Montana my 'Perfect Horse' but also sold me a Mare named Tahoe and two Babies. Cammy and Cooper. Nikki is a perfect matchmaker. She is very honest and I trust that she will find the right horse for anyone looking for that special horse. I had to drive a long way to find her, but I will always turn to Nikki for any of my horse needs. She is very willing to share her knowledge. She is a great trainer and is truly concerned about her horses and her Buyers. Thank you Nikki for finding me the 'Horse of my Dreams' even though no one thought it was possible."

    rose

    I cannot describe how pleased I am with Rose...

    "Ever since then I was a little girl I had dreamed of getting another horse like the one my family used to own. After years of waiting and looking around, I stumbled across Rose's add on the web and discovered Dun' Dreamin' Appaloosa Ranch.

    After initially contacting Nikki about Rose it had been almost over a month until I could make the trip up to meet her. The day finally came to make the 2 hour drive up to Amberg. Meeting Rose for the first time was a great experience. As a first time buyer I was a little nervous about the whole thing. I came prepared with questions/concerns. I don't think I had to ask a single question- Nikki had answered everything without me even asking. Nikki's website was extremely informative and I knew what type of horse I would be meeting with the great descriptions and videos. She is very helpful and professional in her business. I felt very comfortable and at ease going through with my purchase with Nikki. She encouraged me to contact her if I ever needed any advice or had any questions. I was very pleased with the entire experience.

    I am so happy that I decided to follow my dreams of owning a horse again! I cannot describe how pleased I am with Rose! She is a wonderful horse and I am so glad that I was able to find her through Dun' Dreamin' Appaloosa Ranch! I would most certainly recommend Dun' Dreamin' to anyone who is looking to buy a horse!"

    Thank you,

    Nikki isn't just a 'horse trader'...

    "If you're looking to buy a horse, I would very strongly suggest that you talk to Nikki at Dun Dreamin' Appaloosa Ranch. I had always wanted a horse ever since I was a little girl. After buying our dream home in the country and 'convincing' my husband that I needed a horse—I began my search. I am a very green rider, because of that I needed a horse that had been around the block—one that knew his stuff so he could essentially teach and help me while I learned the ropes. I looked around locally and never really found anything close to what I was looking for. I found an ad online for a horse that Nikki was selling, and I contacted her right away. However, the horse I saw online had just been sold. I told Nikki what I was looking for and to contact me if she had any horses in the future that might work out for me. It wasn't much longer when she told me that she thought that Mac might be a good match. I was told by many people to be wary—she's just a 'horse trader' she's going to tell you what you want to hear about the horse, just so she can sell it and move on to the next one. Though I was a little hesitant (but very excited) we made the four hour trip to meet Mac and Nikki. Immediately I found out that my fears were unfounded. Nikki isn't just a 'horse trader' you can literally tell that she pours her heart and soul into each and every one of these horses. And, after doing so, she pairs them with the right people. Nikki has answered so many of my questions, and has been extremely helpful. She sent me pictures between the time we met Mac and the time we picked him up, and she has followed up with me asking for updates. I am unbelievably happy with Mac, and my whole experience with Nikki. When I 'convince' my husband that he needs a horse too—I know EXACTLY who I'm going to contact.

    Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. You made this girl's lifelong dream come true!"

    boomer

    Nikki knows her horses inside out...

    "Couldn't be happier with Boomer, our paint gelding we purchased from Nikki. My daughter is deaf and a very inexperienced rider. I explained to Nikki what we were looking for in a horse, safety. No need for anything fancy but as bomb proof on the trail as possible. Also my daughter loves to love on the horses so one that would enjoy that kind of attention would be best. Nikki had 3 potential candidates for us to choose from. She told us about each of them, their training level, temperament, etc. we rode two of them. Either one I would have been very comfortable with. My daughter fell in love with Boomer. He was a great choice. My daughter, who is profoundly deaf, is able to ride him with confidence on her own. He walks up to us in the pasture, gets along with our other horses, loves all the attention, and is the calmest horse I have ever met. Nikki knows her horses inside out. Tell her what you are looking for, and she will give her honest opinion if she has a horse that will fit your needs!"

    silver

    Nikki made my purchase an easy one and delivery was convenient...

    "After having a horse that challenged my confidence and pushed limits, I was on the search for the perfect match. Nikki reached out to me and asked me exactly what I was looking for. She sent me a picture of my new mustang, Silver. His description matched my request right down to his color. I've only owned Silver a few weeks but I can already see our bond forming. Nikki made my purchase an easy one and delivery was convenient. We are keeping her in mind for any future horse purchases. I can tell Nikki truly loves every horse she sells. I'm looking forward to the many years ahead with Silver... He's a horse that you can only imagine in your dreams. Thank you Nikki!"

    - AJ Jannsen

    She is always willing to answer any questions...

    "I would recommend purchasing a horse from Nikki Huiting in a heartbeat. I found her trustworthy and honest. She made the buying experience the best! And she is always willing to answer any questions and work with you. I love the little mare she sold me!"

    - Judy Young

    She was willing to put her time and knowledge to work on this for me...

    "What can I say about Nikki following thru for me when I could not get the mare I bought from her to load in my trailer. She came to my house within days to work on the loading problem. When she left after more than 3 hours the horse was loading and has been ever since. I am so glad she was willing to put her time and knowledge to work on this for me. Thank you Nikki. I will be able to enjoy the trails this year since I no longer ride alone from home and usually load up to go with friends. Happy trails."

    arrow

    Honest and accurate representation of sale horses from the temperament to the height...

    "I purchased Arrow from Nikki last Winter, sight unseen. I saw him in an add and a video and liked him. I had no way of confirming that Arrow was the quiet and friendly gelding that he was represented as in his sales add. He was being sold as a trail horse with potential for more in the right hands. Nikki worked with me on the price and shipping to Georgia. She patiently answered my million questions and requests for pictures. She went above and beyond to make me comfortable with my purchase.

    The first week Arrow was home I took him out alone on a trail ride down the road. It was a 7 mile ride. He was absolutely wonderful. Now, I am working to transition him into the show ring. He is everything she said he was and so much more. I am very happy with my purchase from Nikki's farm and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an honest and accurate representation of sale horses from the temperament to the height.

    My husband is now teaching our 3 yr old daughter to ride on Arrow. He is a wonderful, healthy, friendly, energetic and affectionate horse that has not been ruined by overtraining or 30 day work overs. We love our new horse and consider Nikki a true and sincere horsewoman and friend! We were very lucky to fall into her helpful hands!"

    secret

    You definitely have a knack for placing the right horse with the right buyer...

    "My whole family would like to say Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! We bought Secret our Buckskin Quarter horse mare from you at the end of January 2016. Truthfully we were not looking for a mare we were in search of a gelding. But fate stepped in when our sixteen-year-old Katie laid eyes on Secret for the first time. She fell in love with her; if you recall she didn't even want to ride any of your other horses.

    As we were trying to decide on a horse and being steered so many different directions; it was your statement that let me know we were making the right decision. I had mentioned how Katie had not felt a connection to the other horses we had looked at like she had Secret. You stated "I can ride most horses very well. But I do not bond with every one, and when I do it's the greatest feeling. You really feel like one. Even if your family does not end up with Secret, do not buy a horse you do not connect with. It's truly not the same, and Katie, your daughter will not get the full enjoyment out of owning a horse.

    Katie not only found a horse, but a true partner. Secret has the biggest heart; and is a diva at the stables. She has been a perfect addition to our family and we love her so much. Nikki, you definitely have a knack for placing the right horse with the right buyer. We can tell you love what you do; and it truly shows in the effort you put into training horses. We are incredibly thankful to have found you, and that you found our Secret! She is everything we were hoping for."

    bonanza

    It was only my second time trying out a horse. However, the experiences were so different...

    "I purchased my very first horse, Bonanza, from Nikki earlier in 2015. I have absolutely no regrets. This horse is everything I could have wanted and more.

    Nikki gave me all of the details, and was very honest and informative. She was upfront about his cinching issue (that I have since worked out of him), and showed me an alternative way to cinch him up where he would give me no problems. Overall, she gave me a wonderful buying experience. I had only seen one other horse before going to Nikki. So it was only my second time trying out a horse. However, the experiences were so different. I feel like Nikki just did everything right, from giving me information on the horse to making it a comfortable atmosphere. She asks you what you're looking for and will try her best to set you up with a horse that will fit your desires. If she believes a horse isn't right for you, she will tell you. I took a four hour trip to get there, and it was absolutely worth it.

    I cannot thank Nikki enough for helping me find such a wonderful companion. Bonanza has quickly become my best friend and is quite possibly the greatest thing to happen to me in my lifetime. So, to anyone looking for a new horse, I highly recommend Nikki!"

    I am glad it was Nikki I was working with...

    "I purchased a horse sight unseen for my daughter from Nikki. Nikki sent numerous videos and responded to all my concerns. She coordinated out of state transportation for me and made sure to check up on him during his journey and upon delivery. I had some questions when the horse arrived and she was always prompt to answer, and to reach out to other resources when necessary. She continues to check in with me and ask for pictures and updates on how the horse and my daughter are getting on. They are getting along great. He is a nice, gentle, healthy horse, just as promised. Purchasing a horse sight unseen was a stressful venture, but, I am glad it was Nikki I was working with as she was fair, followed through, and truly wanted the best outcome for my daughter and her horse. I will definitely continue to stop by her website to browse horses next time I am in the market."

    china

    I can't thank Nikki and her daughter enough...

    "I had been watching Nikki's for sale page for a few years, dreaming of the day I could buy a horse for my daughter. I had a mare I was boarding, but she was a little too much of a handful for my daughter to ride safely outside an arena. Recently we purchased our own place in the country, and I sent an email to Nikki, outlining exactly what we were looking for. My daughter is a good rider with a fair amount of experience, but had lost her confidence after a bad fall last summer. We were looking for a smaller horse that was traffic safe and easy to handle, but that had enough get up and go to do drill team and fun shows. So basically the perfect all-around horse, lol! I knew that my daughter would gain her confidence back after a time and wouldn't want a horse that was too "dead", but also needed a calm enough horse to help that process along.

    Nikki emailed me back that a friend of hers had a horse for sale that she thought would be a good fit. We went up and tried her and it was love at first ride! I found Nikki and her daughter both to be very knowledgeable, helpful, and honest. They are great horse people selling good solid horses. We brought China home a week later, and she settled in nicely, bonding with my mare in a few days time. My daughter Kylie has ridden her to friend's houses for sleepovers, practiced barrels in the pasture, and we have done miles of trails with her. She will go through practically anything on the trail and is very sure-footed. Recently we took her on an overnight camping trip at an organized trail ride and China did wonderfully, even with all the commotion. My daughter is forming such a bond with her she has even started trusting her enough to canter bare back! China has done so well on the trails we are thinking of conditioning her to do a LD endurance ride with my mare and I next year. I can't thank Nikki and her daughter enough for helping Kylie find a horse that is so perfect for her! It makes me so happy to see my daughter riding a horse that she loves!"

    She even helped me find a great place to board Chili close to home...

    "When I first got Chili I was super excited I haven't had a horse in so long I was scarred I'd mess her up. We ended up going through some bumps in our road, but currently we are going to join a mounted program to search for missing people. Nikki was great to work with and helped me when I asked she even helped me find a great place to board chili close to home!"

    major

    I fell in love with Nikki and her daughters the instant I met them...

    "I recently purchased 2 horses from Dun Dreamin Appaloosa Ranch and couldn't be happier. My husband and I are 61, so I was looking for safe, smart, healthy and sound trail partners. I also wanted kind and loving personalities. We had horses for almost 40 yrs and all have been more family then livestock.

    Major and Arrow are wonderful. They are quiet and level headed, they love attention, grooming, kisses and hand feeding by my grandkids. I fell in love with Nikki and her daughters the instant I met them and knew when I told her exactly what I was looking for in a horse I could trust her to help me find he perfect match for us and she did. She is friendly and honest and not at all pushy about making a sale. The horses she sells and owns are treated with kindness and respect. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a horse and I know I can count on her to help solve any problems I might have with my horses health or with my riding. She runs her business the way you wish everyone would."

    To the best Horse jockey I know...

    "I purchased Lakota (aka Dakota) in March of 2015 – Nikki is wonderful to talk with, she listens to what you are looking for, & matches you with a horse that will work best for you. I'm very happy with Dakota, he is such a good boy! Both Dakota & Nikki must have a lot a patience to put up with me! Dakota is everything I was looking for & wanted in a gelding & more. I will definitely buy again from Nikki & can only hope to find a cloned 'Dakota' in the future! Thanks Nikki!"

    I had such a good experience with her that we went back a week later to look at another horse...

    "I came across a post Nikki had on Facebook for beginner safe horses. I checked out her website read the testimonials and I was relieved knowing others had such a great experience with her. We have looked on sites in the past when I was looking for my equine partner. The world of horses can be frustrating, met alot of what we call 'crazy' horse people that will sell you anything. Not caring if the horse is a good fit or not.

    We saw a horse my husband was interested in, but he wasn't for sale just yet, so we watched and waited. Once we saw he was up for sale we contacted Nikki to go meet him. She was very nice & was very patient with me and all my questions. When we got there they brought him in so we could see him being tacked up, then her daughter Alex rode him in the arena and on the trails so we could watch how he did before getting on him. This to me was a HUGE deal! We have went to meet potential horses and the owner wouldn't get on them first, bad sign. Needless to say Rye was everything they advertised him to be! My husband put down a deposit until we picked him up. We were very excited to make him a member of the family. Nikki went over all his paper work and answered any questions we had before leaving. I had such a good experience with her that we went back a week later to look at another horse for myself. I told Nikki what I was looking for and she was able to fit me to a few horses but had one she really thought I'd like. Now being a first time mom I became a little nervous about being on a horse I didn't know. Once it was my turn to get on they asked if I wanted them to walk with me, I felt at ease by this. Once I was comfortable I went off on my own. I ended up buying a beautiful mare named Ricci (the one she thought would be perfect was just that) the experience was just a great as the first. Sweetest little thing.

    Needless to say we are both VERY happy with our decisions and would recommend her to ANYONE looking to find their equine companion. She knows her stuff and won't just sell you a horse to make a buck. We still stay in contact, how many people will do that after selling you a horse? Goes to show she has confidence in what she sells. Thank you for everything Nikki!!"

    cricket

    I would go back and buy another horse from Nikki in a heartbeat...

    "This is Abby and her horse Cricket. We bought Cricket this past spring and couldn't be happier! Abby and Cricket hit it off right away from the first day they met. Cricket loves attention and loves to be brushed and let's Abby do almost anything. Abby would like to ride Cricket English, game and start jumping next year. This year they have gone to a few fun shows and went to the county fair and did good. We would recommend buying any horse from Nikki and if we need another horse I would go back and buy another horse from Nikki in a heartbeat! Thank you Nikki for Cricket she is a great horse!"

    Jada has a good home and a very happy owner...

    "Hi Nikki,

    Oh my gosh, I love this horse! She has settled in nicely to our barn routine and seems to be comfortable with me as her new owner. I am so happy with her disposition and willingness to work. Her gait is a blast and I absolutely love riding her! I can take her all over the ranch and she's not fussy just curious.

    This week we leave for our first camping trip with her to Big Valley Ranch in Avoca WI. She seems to like my husband's horse so I think she'll be fine as his trail pal.

    Just wanted to let you know that Jada has a good home and a very happy owner!"

    "Nikki,

    I can't begin to thank you for connecting Moon & me! I absolutely love him!! You made the buying experience so easy. Letting me come ride on two different occasions. The second ride, you let my 2 friends bring their horses and we all rode for over 2 hours. You also got in contact with the previous owner to get more of his history. And, after all of that, you delivered Moon to my house! Thank you for making my buying experience such a positive one."

    Thanks for making the experience of getting my first horse an amazing one...

    "I can't thank Nikki enough for everything. Tiny is absolutely amazing. All of her horses for sale are trained VERY well. My sister and I looked at many other horses before we found Nikki. No other horses even came close to hers. Tiny canters like a dream and slows down as soon as you ask. He was definitely trained well. He'll do anything you ask without hesitation! He is definitely a sweetheart too. He'll lick my pocket while I clean his hooves if he knows I have treats and he always rubs his head on me until I scratch his ears. Always the first to greet you at the gate too! Overall I am very pleased and definitely would get another horse from her in a heart beat. Thanks for making the experience of getting my first horse an amazing one."

    He is the most quiet horse I have ever owned...

    "I am an older rider who was looking for another horse I could ride by myself and be safe on. I came to see Regal. I rode him by myself away from the barn without incident. He moved out and was very obedient, not to mention a beauty. I got him home and my friends say he is the most quiet horse I have ever owned. Nikki was very truthful in her ad of this horse. She arranged for a farrier to check him out and a vet. This week while on a ride I met up with a huge tractor and triple plow. This horse never shied. He has a home forever in my family. Thank you Nikki for being honest in this business."

    Quality horses that are exactly what she says they are...

    "I bought a 'guaranteed safe' horse in Montana and ended up with a broken back, Since then I have been watching Nikki's site and saw a picture of this beautiful gelding. I contacted Nikki and asked about him. I bought him sight unseen as Nikki has a spotless reputation for selling quality horses that are exactly what she says they are. I was very afraid to ride again but this horse is so gentle, I absolutely love him. Just what I needed. And you can't beat Nikki's prices, I know I could sell this horse right now for much more than I paid. I would highly recommend buying your next horse from Nikki, you will not be disappointed!"

    honey

    I'm so thankful to have found Nikki and Honey...

    "We had been searching for a nice riding trail horse for a few years. A horse anyone in our family could ride and a horse I felt SAFE on. After two failed attempts to find the perfect horse, I stumbled over a listing for a horse who ended up being sold, but kept the information for the next horse that popped up. Next time I checked Nikki's website, I saw a well broke mare named Honey. She was young...4...and about 5 hours away, but my husband and I made the trip to meet Honey and Nikki. So glad we did...I fell in love with Honey! Nikki didn't mind spending a few hours while we tested Honey, which I really appreciated. Honey now has a loving forever home in New Glarus, WI along with our other QH Cindy. She has been so calm and awesome since we got her I couldn't be happier. She is such a great little mare, even at 4. She does things my last 12 year old horse would never do. She finally makes riding fun for me and I'm so thankful to have found Nikki and Honey."

After meeting us and knowing what I was looking for she felt this boy would be a good fit. After several trips to visit we made the decision to make it official. He is all she said he would be and I'm so grateful for her good judgment and patience as we made our decision. He loves the attention showered on him and is much loved. Only problem, Grandma may have to stand in line for some saddle time."

I wish all sellers were as honest as you are. If they were the world of horse's would be a better place. I enjoyed spending the time with you and I hope in the future our paths will cross again. When anyone that is looking for a horse the first person I tell them to go to is you.

    bandit

    Thank you for putting the spark back in me to get back into horses again...

    "I just want to write this testimony about Nikki and her business Dun Dreamin Appaloosa Horse Ranch. I've been through a lot in the last several years with horses from spooking to horses with health issues. So I was about to sell both our horses and get out of them all together. I went on a horse website called Horseclicks and saw an ad for a trail horse for sale. It was a mare whose name was Boo. I email if Nikki if she had info on her she was already sold so Nikki asked me what I was looking in a horse and discipline. I told Nikki I was looking for a sound safe and a pleasant horse for myself for trail riding. Nikki sent me info on 3 geldings she had for sale at the time but 2 of them were already sold so she had this 15.2 hands 13 year old gelding named Bandit she thought this would be a great fit for me. So Steve (my husband) said lets go for a drive and see him so we drove 6 hours total on a Friday night to try this gelding Bandit. Steve and I saw him and so Nikki's daughter put her saddle on him rode him for us to see how he moved. I brought my saddle and saddled him and then rode him in arena and for a person who doesn't canter I sure did!! So after the ride in the arena Nikki's daughter then took her horse and Bandit and I out on a trail ride on there property as we were riding the kids were out on ATVs and a motorized dirt bike. Bandit did absolutely nothing just looked at the kids and kept riding. This was the most exciting enjoyable experience that I ever had on a horse in the last 10 years!!! So when we got back from our ride Steve went out also. He got back and said he was Amazing!! Mind you Steve has only been in horses for 2 years now. Now that's something there. I just went to pick up Bandit today and brought him home to the boarding facility where we are boarding. All I have to say about Nikki and her family at Dun Dreamin Appaloosa Horse Ranch. Buying Bandit was a pleasant, enjoyable experience I ever had!!! Nikki is also very knowledge, intelligent, honest, personable and matching horses with owners. Have to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU for putting the spark back in me to get back into horses again!! If I have to replace my husband with another horse we would do the 6 hour drive all over again!! Well worth the trip In My Book!!"

    alli

    Not only was she a good trail horse for me, but she also was loved by everyone who rode her...

    "Back in 2009 I bought Alli from Nikki, whom I met through mutual friends. Alli was a steal, $800 for this horse, who turned out to be an an amazing horse for me and the current owners that bought her from me. Alli came to Nikki as a rescue, and then to me as a good trail horse. Not only was she a good trail horse for me, but she also was loved by everyone who rode her, including some of my developmentally disabled clients, younger nieces and nephews, siblings, and boyfriend who didn't know much about horses at the time. She was my old faithful that I trusted with anyone. I ended up selling my beautiful flea bitten girl because she just wasn't barrel horse material, but now is loved by two little girls unconditionally, who enjoy riding on a trail, in an arena, and even do some jumping with her. Alli was also a grade mare, nothing fancy, no special blood lines, I wish I knew her history, but it just goes to show that a cheap horse can sometimes be the best one in the herd. Thank you, Nikki for giving me the opportunity to own her and love her!!"

    She will go out of her way to find you what you are looking for...

    "My husband at 63 who never rode before has taken lessons and now rides horses with me. All of our horses have come from Dun Dreamin Appaloosa Ranch. She is a very honest, sincere person. There were horses we loved, and would have bought, but out of our capabilities as senior riders. Nikki wasn't afraid to tell us. The horses we have purchased from Nikki are all sound, well broke and a pleasure to ride at home and out on trails. We would recommend Nikki to anyone looking for a horse and have many times. She will go out of her way to find you what you are looking for and is always ready to answer any questions you may have after the purchase."

    This quality in a horse person is hard to come by...

    "Let's see.. Where to Start? I first met Nikki about 5 years ago when I had a Haflinger that was no longer really of any use to me. Nikki had a Red Dun mare that fit right into my breeding program. We talked and figured each horse would work for what we do so I drove up and met Nikki and we made a trade with the Haflinger and the Red Dun.

    Since then I have kept in touch with Nikki via Facebook. I have watched her and her daughters grow as horse woman. I have watched her place countless horses in homes that are not only perfect for the horse, but perfect for the owner as well. Nikki has always had a good eye for being able to place horses with someone that will get the most of them and vice versa. She has always been open and honest about the horses she sells. She spends her life and her sole job is finding perfect matches for horse and rider.

    Seeing all this over the years it was easy for me to contact Nikki when I decided this year (2014) that I needed to take a break from horses. I have been an active horsewoman running a full fledged breeding/boarding/training facility to buying and selling horses and even standing a quality reining stallion here in WI. I have shown and given lessons and have met countless people nationwide while being so active in the horse industry. I have met many people and Nikki is hands down one of the most true and honest horse woman I have met. I wouldn't second guess sending anyone her way. Parting with my horses wasn't an easy task. One especially being out of my late Stallion and a horse that changed my views on the horse industry in many ways. Nikki has made me transition from being a horse owner to a horseless horse woman beyond easy. Of course I know I've been a pain in the process but not once did Nikki ever make me feel like I was a burden. This quality in a horse person is hard to come by and one very few people will find in their years of being a horse owner. Nikki has allowed me to vent and bounce things off her and most importantly she is loving my boys and placing them with the right folks. It was getting hard having different folks come out and try the horses and having to shed the tears time and time again. I will never be able to thank her enough for what she has done for myself and my mom.

    Horses were a thing my mom and I did together. While a break is needed and it is right. I will be back in the horse industry in time and I won't hesitate to contact Nikki when we are ready to find our next horse. Thank you Nikki and Jason for everything you have done for my mom and I. I will forever and always be grateful for your honesty, kindness and friendship."

    She doesn't just sell and forget...

    "Hello everyone. My name is Lori, I had been searching for a long time for a horse with lots of experience in trail riding for a long time. So when I saw Harvey I knew he was for me. I need a horse with no tacking or mounting issues, not spooky, I am not an experienced rider. But I love horses and always dreamed of owning one I could handle. I didn't have a ton of knowledge with the Appaloosa breed, but love his color. So, I went to Nikki's ranch to try him out. He is just the right height. She was very informative, told me about her experience with him. So I called a lady to ask about Nikki's character. I was reassured. I took him home that day. And he is everything she said he was. There is not one horse out there that is perfect all the time. But if have any ?? she helps me out. How cool is that she doesn't just sell and forget. I love that I can go out and get him. tie, tack groom and ride with no problems...does all that I ask...did I mention he loads like a dream...I recommend anyone who is looking for a horse and partner for the rider to see her about a horse.... here is one picture of one of my joyful rides with my Harvey."

    rooster

    The farm has great care and is very well taken care of...

    "I bought this boy from Nikki. He is a 5 year old dapple grey registered American Quarter Horse. When I was looking for a horse I contacted Nikki and told her what I was looking for and she gave me my options. We discussed what horses she thought would be right for me and I came and tried two of them out. She gave me very clear directions to get to her house and when I got there I was welcomed very nicely. Nikki and her girls were willing to help me right away and I looked at two horses that Nikki thought would work for me. And I fell in love with Rooster the minute she brought him out. We talked about it worked things out and I ended coming back shortly after to buy this beautiful boy. I now use Rooster as a intermediate to advanced lesson horse and my everything horse. He does great for me and was everything Nikki told me he was. She was honest with me from the beginning about how he would need some ground work and I put that on him and now he works very well for me. Thank you for selling him to me! The farm has great care and is very well taken care of I would recommend Dun Dreamin' Appaloosa Ranch, if you are looking to buy a horse!"

    My boys love going to Nikki's farm and riding her horses when we visit...

    "I have known Nikki for many years. We met when we were both boarding at a private farm. She is a great horsewoman in every sense of the word, she never stops learning about horses - health, training, breeds, and more. When she brought Nevada to Chad's farm I was in love with her right away. I already had enough horses for my family and was not looking to add to my herd. Nikki was kind enough to let me ride Nevada one year at Caroline on the Sunday ride when I had not brought up my horses. I fell even more in love with her. I told Nikki if she ever was to sell her let me know. Well, her girls got into barrel racing, and Nevada is NOT a barrel horse. So, since she was not getting used enough Nikki called and offered her to me - and I said yes, without even talking to my husband about it. I paid for her, my name is on her papers, but she has been claimed by my husband. His horse was given to our boys to ride, and he took over Nevada--he fell in love with her too. He is as stubborn as she is, and it is quite comical, the 2 of them on trail rides as they have their "talks". However, she will go through anything for him (he just makes her think its her idea) and he LOVES her extended trot. Our other horse we got from Nikki is Lady. Lady used to belong to Chad's daughter, but she grew up and went to college. Then Nikki kept her at her farm for her niece, who decided she wanted more of a challenge as she got older. Nikki called me up and asked me if I would give Lady her forever home and let my boys learn from her (William is 15 and a good rider - he steals Nevada from his dad, Daniel is 9 and still green, and Wyatt just turned 4). Knowing Lady and her calmness I said yes, and all my boys love her and fight over who gets to ride. She was our blessing in disguise as we brought her home in February 2013, and sadly had to put down Scooter (my husbands AQHA of 18 years) due to his neck tumor causing problems in September at age 30. My boys love going to Nikki's farm and riding her horses when we visit. I know she will always match their riding abilities to the horse perfectly. I am proud to call Nikki my friend, as is my whole family proud to have her as a friend."

    Will only buy from her...

    "I have bought 3 horses from Nikki and will only buy from her as she is honest and has a true passion for the horses and what she does. She has saved so many horses that have went to their forever homes. I needed a smooth horse as I have back problems since breaking my back in 2006 and she fit me with a Tennessee Walker named Elmo and he is my best friend. (Thank you to Serenity List also). Nikki you are truly amazing in what you do and as a person (friend). Thank you so much again."

    warrior

    He is an awesome trail horse and everything she said he was...

    "I bought my grade paint horse, Hidalgo a.k.a. Warrior from Nikki a little over a year ago. He is an awesome trail horse and everything she said he was. I have taken him camping and he does excellent. I would recommend if you are buying a horse, you buy it from Nikki. I would buy another horse from Nikki...it was well worth the drive."

    rubin

    I was very pleased and impressed with my transaction with Nikki...

    "This week we found the horse I've been looking for my whole life. Rubin is a sweet, beautiful Appaloosa gelding. He is amazing with my kids (ages 8,6, and 3). After seeing him advertised online, I messaged the seller, Nikki. She immediately responded, and we set up a date to go visit her in Amberg. Upon pulling up to their stable, I noticed how clean and spacious the grounds were. Nikki and her daughters came out and brought Rubin over to us to meet. He was easy to halter and lead. Her daughter then rode him around. Finally, my daughter and son had their turns. Rubin is a healthy, happy boy. Nikki was very good about asking us what we were looking for and what our needs were. Rubin seemed like a good match, as he is small enough and gentle enough for my kids, but not so small that they will outgrow him. When I told Nikki it may be a few weeks before we could arrange a trailer, she offered to haul Rubin to us (2.5 hrs away) the next day. Indeed, her husband arrived promptly with Rubin the following day. They did this for only the cost of gas! We are extremely happy with Rubin. He is fitting right in. I was very pleased and impressed with my transaction with Nikki. It felt very professional. I would definitely do business with Dun Dreamin' again."

    Thanks, Nikki!

    She was honest in everything she said in the ads...

    "Nikki helped me out in a rough patch and bought two beautiful horses from me and found them the perfect homes. She was honest in everything she said in the ads and the people couldn't have been more happy. They contacted me and told me how wonderful they were and how happy they were to find the perfect horse."

    Nikki was one of the nicest people I have worked with...

    "Hello my name is Nicole Kroyer and I bought 2 mares from Nikki. My moms horse Malibu and My baby Cougar. They were everything that Nikki told me they were. Nikki was one of the nicest people I have worked with to find horses my experience with Nikki was very good, great communication also. I love my new mares and they make a good part of my herd and family."

    I still had something to do with the sale from Nikki to the new owners...

    "When I had our girls for sale (Bella & Mariah) I was very leery about who they went to. Immediately after receiving an email from Nikki, I checked out her website. I saw that she bought and sold horses which didn't make me feel any better. After many emails, Nikki relieved all of my fears and concerns. I was extremely comfortable with my decision to sell them to her. The best part was the fact that I still had something to do with the sale from Nikki to the new owners. I am so thrilled to be friends with Bella's new mommy, Jennifer Koontz Cretens! I know she is still loved and cared for the way she was here! Love you Nikki!!!"

    Nikki was one of the nicest people I have worked with...

    "For anyone who might be considering buying or selling a horse I highly recommend Nikki Huiting! I purchased a wonderful AQHA mare from her a year ago. I went to Nikki's horse ranch one day, made my decision, put a down payment on her and Nikki delivered her in a few days.

    She runs a very professional yet personal business and truly cares about all the horses she has.

    She has a very well maintained farm-everything is clean and in excellent condition.

    She is honest, very knowledgeable about horses and will even help match a horse to you.

    When the time comes for me to retire and cover up my saddles for good I would contact Nikki before anyone else to sell and/or place my equines!"

    I didn't get what I was looking for, we got MORE...

    Nikki,

    "I would like to send a note off to you thanking you for the wonder you created in our family with assisting us when we decided to buy two horses from you than have truly become a part of our family. We foster a young man that is 22 years old with autism, he has become a truly outstanding man with the involvement we have been able to share with him and the horses you sold to us. On the top picture you will see us being able to pony him on his dream horse one Fall day last year. Ryan, has developed a voice with being able to work with, care for, and learn about trust with Stetson who has welcomed Ryan and all of his quirks without question. I however was able to do this for him with a horse that you choose for me in Sizzle. Together Sizzle and Stetson are able to be ponied, rode, and just teach both Ryan and myself so much. I thank you for the time you took to read the email I sent off to you and your understanding in the horses we were asking for. But I will admit it was to my surprise that I didn't get what I was looking for, we got MORE. So if there is ever a time we are in the need again, or anyone is in question of how great a person yourself or your abilities are to find that PERFECT horse please feel free to share my contact and I will very willingly let them know. All they need to do is ask, be honest in what they want and they will get that and so much more. So again from Ryan and I we both say GIDDY UP."

    justice

    She goes out of her way to spend money on the horses she brings in...

    "I got a leopard Appaloosa named Justice from Nikki in 2007. He was wonderful and everything she said he was. I got along so well with her that we have stayed in touch over the years. I later took him back to her for a training update. Her daughter, Alex, did his training, and when I got him back a month later, he had drastically improved! Nikki and I have stayed friends and I always recommend her to people who are looking for a horse, especially appaloosas! Justice was in an accident when he was only 7 and had to be put down. Nikki was one of the first people to call me (not even sure how she found out so fast) to try to make me feel better. She does not just sell and forget about the horses, she cares about all of them and wants them to have the best match in a new owner. She goes out of her way to spend money on the horses she brings in for re-sale to make sure they are as healthy and sound as possible before she sells them. Her prices are worth it if you want a horse that doesn't have any issues as soon as you get it home and you can always call her afterwards for advice."

    jack

    When it came to selling him, I turned to Nikki for help...

    "I have known Nikki for the last 15 years, we started off boarding at the same place and have been friends since. In 2008 I purchased a Percheron "Jack" from her, unfortunately the following year we had to sell him due to some personal reasons. When it came to selling him, I turned to Nikki for help, as I was heartbroken with having to sell him. He was the first horse I ever had to sell and wasn't sure how to go about it, she was a tremendous help. Last year when we moved from our own farm to go back to boarding again, she helped place one of the horses at our farm when there was nowhere for him to go. She stepped in and said she would help find a home for him so I brought him up by her and she found someone take him. I am very grateful to her for all of her help. If in the future, we are ready to find another the add to our herd, she will be the first person I turn to."

    She is very knowledgeable and is so very kind...

    "Dun Dreamin' Appaloosa Ranch is an amazing place to visit and especially to find your forever partner of a horse. Although I have never bought a horse from Nikki, she has helped me out so many times. Giving me pointers, advice, and everything in between. I have never meet such a person as herself, to go to her wits end to help find and place each horse with its suitable rider. She is very knowledgeable and is so very kind and has more patients than I have ever seen in a person. She and her business are truly a great experience to deal with. You won't be disappointed and will leave with a great experience and a little bit more information and knowledge than you came with."

    Nikki horse's are well worth the price you pay. She sticks the time into them...

    "This horse was bought from Nikki!! We had a friend looking for a well broke horse to do Civil War, Wild West, reenacting also for trail riding. Nikki is a very honest seller and I would send everyone to her. This horse was exactly as she advertised him. If he wasn't we would of not had our friend buy from her. Most of you wouldn't know who I am, because I do not go by my married name. I am married to Smokie Brannaman he has a lot of experience with horses. (As some of you may know. LOL) He would recommend Nikki if someone is looking for a good honest seller with good broke horse's. We have recommended Nikki many times and will do in the future. You do not find many sellers like Nikki. This horse has been to many Civil War and Wild West shows, trail rides, and we also had kids that never rode and he never makes a wrong move. Luke still does training on him from time to time but, its Luke not the horse. (Luke is new to the horse world.) But this horse takes very good care of him. This horse has been to Gettysburg Civil War 150th event. He went in to battle with 400 horse's and did a awesome job. If Luke would ever sell this horse we would take him in a minute. Nikki horse's are well worth the price you pay. She sticks the time into them and gets them well trained. I rather find a horse with a good foundation and pay for it."

    Thank You Nikki!!
