What Our Clients Say
Being inexperienced in horse purchasing it was easy to find myself in an uncomfortable situation. It was then I chanced upon Bridget Brandon! She was a blessing! Her compassion and understanding in explaining to me all of the possible scenarios led us to the ideal solution. Thank you Bridget!
Tanja Schnuderl was an absolute pleasure to employ for her appraisal work on our case. I sought an appraisal for a legal matter, and at Bridget Brandon's recommendation I spoke to Ms. Schnuderl and decided to employ her services for the matter. She was knowledgeable, personable and approachable in that first meeting, and she was very gracious in her willingness to immediately commit to prioritizing our case because of the circumstances at hand. Ms. Schnuderl sought contact with me on multiple occasions to affirm facts about the case and to offer perspectives on the issue that nobody else had yet considered, which displayed her extensive knowledge about the equine industry and community. She went above and beyond the expectations of a standard appraisal and was very dedicated to acting as an informational liaison between myself and the industry-specific details, and anyone who is unfamiliar with horses but needs to understand the circumstances. Her work was fantastically thorough and honest, and Ms. Brandon's recommendation that Ms. Schnuderl would be superbly qualified to speak to the horse management aspect of this case was accurate. I am very pleased with the product of Ms. Schnuderl's time and effort. Although the circumstances of my acquaintance with her are less than ideal, I absolutely look forward to working with her in the future should the need ever arise.
Tanja Schnuderl helped me with the appraisals of two horses that I needed done on almost an emergency basis. She was so effective and professional in gathering all necessary information, especially since I had never sold a horse before and did not have all the needed information readily available. She was very patient through all that and quickly produced an excellent and well-documented appraisal of the value of the 2 horses. I highly recommend her for any equine appraisal needs.
Bridget was able to guide me through the negotiation process in order to save me a ton of money. She is honest, knowledgeable and I highly recommend working with her!
The American Society of Equine Appraisers in Twin Falls, Idaho recommended Bridget Brandon to prepare an appraisal of my Brandenburg warmblood horse. Bridget determined the purpose for which I needed the appraisal. It quickly became apparent that she was a good horsewoman as well as a caring and decent human being. She was extremely thorough in her examination of my horse, which included an in-depth investigation of his USEF record, pedigree and physical condition. She was careful to base her appraisal on comparable sales. When the appraisal was complete, I felt confident that Bridget had arrived at a well justified opinion of his value which would hold up under any scrutiny.
In the process of the appraisal, Bridget and I discussed the type and level of insurance I was maintaining on my horses. She counselled me about appropriate ways to cover medical needs for my horses and help my budget! I am very grateful to have met Bridget Brandon and to have become familiar with all the services ValueMyHorse LLC offers. She is very competent both as an equine appraiser and insurer. I would recommend her to anyone who asked.
Ms. Brandon was retained as an expert witness for a very high-profile client of mine with respect to equine expenses, values and showing. She was at all times professional, thorough and added tremendous value to the case by going beyond what was asked of her and providing information critical to settling the case.
Ms. Brandon's professional skills are excellent and she is an articulate writer and speaker. I highly recommend her. She was instrumental in achieving a very favorable settlement for my client.

I used to board my mare with Bridget and I can tell you she is one of the most knowledgeable people I've ever met in the horse field! She is very organized and knows how to run a barn efficiently and effectively. I've also consulted with Bridget on stallions when it came time to breed my mare. Bridget is the reason why I have a fabulous homebred Eventer that is unstoppable! I would trust her with anything horse related or otherwise and will definitely use her expertise as an Equine Appraisers.
