Family Equine Groton NY / Straight from the horses mouth
I recently received this email and most likely in error as I filed a complaint about the so called kid friendly anyone can ride horse that I purchased from this scammed operation in Groton New York. The true descriptions listed is an email that was apparently sent between Bob Aichlee, Rob and someone named Oakwood. This is obviously the true description of the type of horses they are knowingly selling to people - your descriptions of these horses should be posted on your website. Wow...deceit and lies right from your own mouth - be careful in the future as to who you send your emails to because this only incriminates yourself!
For all the people on this complaint site, please enjoy the true descriptions of the horses this outfit is selling and know without a doubt he knew exactly what he was selling to you. And Noreen - I know you wrote a complaint and were severely injured by the so called quiet, trail, kid safe, anyone can ride horse - your injuries could have been avoided if Family Equine sold you the type of horse they told you they were selling you. I guess they find it quite humorous to deceit their customers with unsafe animals and unfortunately you are the one that paid dearly and suffered at their enjoyment. To Family Equine- Shame on you and double shame using God Bless - More like God Bless the poor soul buying a horse from you.
