Rafter 6 Quarter Horses / Christina Beaver
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.
