Riddermark Stables / Terrible experience

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I originally purchased a mother and daughter horse from Riddermark Stables. I paid $2500 for both. Which everyone told me it was too much. I purchased the horses in November. I was told both horses would come with coggins and a health certificate. In December she told me the mother died and wanted to replace the horse.

I recently moved to TN and the horses were delivered a week ago. I had a Vet check the horses out. The older horse is 200 lbs underweight. The foal has a hernia and is very maul nourished. I did not receive a health certificate for either horse or coggins for the foal. I emailed the seller and she is trying to tell me that the Vet is wrong. I have no idea what i am going to do with this foal with a hernia. I can not ride the mare. The Vet recommended I not ride her because of her weight. This has been the worst experience in my life. Buyer be ware. People will take advantage of you at the expense of an animal.

    If you are still in possession of the vet diagnosis, contact your local ASPCA with whatever evidence you have. Such as accompanying pictures, Vet bills, etc..

    The seller abused these animals, the other horse probably died from simply being starved to death, which is indeed punishable by law.


    The sooner you take action against the seller, the better. Perhaps you can work out something with a local school, to have the children come and see your horses and you talk about proper animal care, and the horrible conditions in which they arrived. You may not be able to ride them, but you could try to teach a younger generation and help prevent this abuse.
