well Yes but that doesn't mean that the guy didn't promise to take the horse back and not do it. I'd have buyers remorse too if I bought a horse that didn't measure up to what I thought he should be.... She said they paid 6500 for the horse. That's a LOT for the economic climate of today, where people everywhere are GIVING horses away. For that price I'm expecting a horse to be in great shape (she said he was not) perfectly push button trained and have the ability to win at shows.

I agree in a way.. when I read they paid 6500 for this so called horse.. I cringed.. In this market that could buy you something like an andalusian or a friesian in some cases.. but only refunding 5k is not right if it was in paperwork that he would refund money, but then again coming on multiple forums and verbally bashing this guy.. he could sue you as well and he may end up with the money back.. so you will be out the horse and the money for libel

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Unfortanetly I think she is going to have to chalk this one up to a case of lesson learned. If you had nothing in writing, you lucky to have gotten a single cent back because he could have just denied ever saying that. Not to be the spoil-sport but I can't see you getting anymore money back from him.. harsh but true. You can try, but I don't see it happening - here's hoping you prove me wrong.

Next time, go closer to home, view the horse, try the horse, take it on trial if you can and make sure it is what you want. You will find yourself a perfectly good horse for a fraction of that price.

Good luck with everything :)

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Yes I agree shouting his name all over the forum didn't do her any good or win her any fans LOL but I CERTAINLY Do understand the frustration that someone can feel when they are taken advantage of.

Hummm...the thread seemed fishy to me to. I agree with many of the other posters.

Sorry, but paying $6500 in this economy for a horse sight unseen is bizarre in its own right. Glad you at least got $5,000 back when it sounds like he didn't want to give you any of your money back, but that horse had better have come with some serious training for that price to begin with. Definitely look closer to home and do a pre-purchase trial next time to make sure it's the horse for you.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
