"Buying Elvis from Kendall and Alex Hempleman was a such a positive experience from beginning to end. I was looking for a young horse with quality, a good brain and who’d had the right start. Which described Elvis perfectly! Kendall was totally open in giving me a full picture of Elvis, his background, what he had and hadn’t done and fully answered any questions I had at all points throughout the process. I felt Kendall genuinely wanted to make sure Elvis was the right fit and vice versa! Kendall gave me the space and time to get a real feel for him, so ultimately I felt complete confidence in buying from Hempleman Equestrian. I was impressed by their professionalism throughout - it was a genuine pleasure to deal with both Alex and Kendall.
Elvis has since proven himself to be everything Kendall described - he’s a genuine, unspoilt young horse with the all right groundwork in place. He’s an absolute pleasure to own and produce - I’m so excited for what the future will hold! He’s simply stunning, I’m head over heels."
"I’ve been very lucky to have benefited from Alex’s extensive experience and expertise over a number of years not just in finding the right horse, but also in the ongoing advice assistance and training he and his team provide."
"Dear Kendall and Alex, I just thought I'd send you an email to say how pleased I am with Sam, he has been with me for nearly three weeks and has settled in really well. He has clearly been properly produced by yourselves and has great manners and a lovely willing attitude to anything I've asked of him so far. It was a pleasure dealing with you both and I found your approach to selling horses very professional and helpful.
With regards to after sales, Kendall has been on hand with helpful advice and support and it's so nice to be able to keep in touch. Thanks once again for all your help and guidance and matching the right horse to the rider."
"Having sent a young competition mare to Alex, to produce in 2013, we would recommend him as a top producer of young horses. Reliable, hardworking he did a lovely job for us. We have now sold her and wouldn't have without the help of Alex and everyone at Hempleman Equestrian"
"Alex has been an integral part of The Billy Stud for several years, riding and producing many of our young horses whilst based at his own yard in Cowfold, West Sussex. He is a true professional who works to the highest of standards always meeting my expectations of dedication and trust. Equestrian knowledge & experience allows Alex to evaluate each horse with a unique sensitivity and work towards individual goals."
SISLEY AND PHILIPPA
"I would recommend Hempleman Equestrian without hesitation to anyone who is looking to buy a top quality show jumper.
Alex has really listened to what I am looking for in a horse and the whole process was so easy. I had ample time to try the horse and at no stage did I feel under any pressure to make a purchase.
For Alex and Kendall it wasn't about find "a horse" it was important to them that I found the "right horse" for me. I am absolutely delighted with Sisley, I couldn't ask for a better partner round a course of jumps.
In addition to being accomplished equestrians, Alex, Kendall and all their team are thoroughly lovely people. I feel very lucky to have had their help in finding my horse."
"I’d like to thank Hempleman Equestrian for their help, honesty and guidance in the purchase of my new 4 year old mare Persia in February this year.
When we first arranged to view Hempleman Equestrian’s horses they suggested a couple different horses which matched my criteria, and one in particular which they thought would suit me best (Persia). They couldn’t have been more right in matching us. From the first moment I met Persia I knew she was the one for me. Everyday since she has proved how special she is. There is no doubt the way she was professional produced was to a high standard and she has all the attributes of a future successful sports horse. She is a beautiful mare inside and out, she has a fantastic attitude to work and always wants to learn. She is everything I was searching for and more.
A massive thank you to Alex & Kendall and there honesty, knowledge and professionalism. They made the whole process so simple and straightforward and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase from them again."

“I got introduced to Kendall and Alex through the owner of the yard I’m at. After having terrible luck with finding my dream horse. I was hesitant of viewing horses due to my past experiences. Kendall showed me this beautiful grey 4 year old called Kelvin. From the start I fell in love with him. He is just a true gentleman. He was what she said, there was no surprises at all.
Kendall wanted to find me the right horse and didn’t just want a quick sale. She wanted to find one which I could grow with and gain a good bond with.
I would definitely recommend Hempleman Equestrian. They are 100% genuine and lovely people. Kendall is always at the end of the phone helping with advice when needed even after the sale was made.
Kelvin has settled in so well and he has been improving day by day. We are growing a strong bond and gaining more trust each time we are together. He has definitely been produced in the correct way by Hempleman Equestrian. He is such a gentleman and has an amazing willing attitude and I can’t wait to keep learning more together and carrying on our journey."
