I attempted to purchase a pony from Rafter 6 Quarter Horses for use in a riding lesson program with small children. According to Rafter 6 Quarer Horses, the pony was gentle, obedient, rode English and Western, jumped, and would be suitable for my program. They required full payment in advance inorder to hold the pony until I could travel to see the pony and finalize the purchase. After they received my money, they stopped all communication with me and refused to return phone calls. I drove several hours to their ranch. The pony was difficult to catch, and it took 10 minutes to get a bit in his mouth; so thghtly was his jaw clamped. He was tense and nervous, and acted as though he might have been abused. When we attempted to ride him, he bolted, throwing my friend off in the process. I told Christina that I did not want the pony and that I wanted my money back. At first she told me that that's what I got for buying a pony sight unseen. Then, she drafted a document stating she would refund the money to me. Her mother called me, telling me she had done a bank transfer to my account, but this was never done. To date, they will not return my calls.

I had the same thing happen to me -- they needed a $500.00 deposit to hold the horse, this horse was supposed to be bomb proof -- it was tied to a tree and saddled when we got there, terrible terrible feet,
and I could never get my refund back -- even though I have in writing that she would refund my money, her Mother said the same thing -- the 500.00 is a scam, they get you so excited about a horse then make you believe it is going to sell if you don't give them the money, and then they don't make good on their promises. I heard the check was in the mail, my Mom mailed your check -- which I never got. I would never purchase a horse from this place, EVER!

One day Christine will have to answer to a higher authority for all her wrong doing. I hope it was worth it. I finally had to let it go and said well, I donated $500.00 to charity.
