No Limits Farm / Horse Trade Ripoff
Our family has three horses and one horse, Cane, was showing signs of spooking easily. Since our kids are going to be riding these horses my husband thought it would be better if we traded him for a broke horse that anyone could ride. Word got around and the owner of No Limits Farm, where Cane's father lived, gave us a call and said she has a horse that is "so broke" even a small child can ride her. She sent us pictures and we really liked the way she looked. So we decided to make an even trade, Cane for Gracie even though we had paid $1500 for Cane. We just wanted a horse we could all learn to ride on that was well behaved. Ashley the owner of No limits farm brought Gracie to our house and picked up Cane. Ashley and my husband Peter agreed on a 30 day trial period. If for some reason that either of us are not satisfied we will switch back the horses. Well needless to say that after about a week at our house Gracie started limping. After about $600 in vet charges she was diagnosed with Navicular Syndrome. It was told to us that she would be a maintenance horse. We called Ashley and left her a message on what was going on and that we would like Cane back because now we would not be able to ride this horse as agreed. Plus we looked at it this way that we traded her a healthy horse for a hurt horse. How fair is that. Of course she did not return our calls nor did she ever pick up the phone everytime we called. We think that she doped the horses foot when she brought her over so she wouldn't limp when she got to our house or else we would never have made the trade. Since Ashley at No Limits Farm was not answering our calls or calling us back Peter loaded Gracie up and made the trip to the farm to trade the horses back. When he got there he asked her that she could make this right by just giving us Cane back. She flat out said no and even denied the 30 day trail period. My husband was shocked that someone just came to our house and scammed us like this and she had no conscious on what it was doing to our kids. We have also learned that she sold a horse with bad feet to a lady in Georgia and she has been trying to get a hold of Ashely and No Limits farm but of course she does not answer and she does not call back. There have also been problems with the farm that she dealt with in the breeding of Cane. I would hope that anyone that is thinking about dealing with No Limits Farm better think again.
