Does anybody have any experience with Luis Galindo? I am interested in one of his horses but am a little leery as I have never seen or heard of him at all. Does anybody know his riding or training abilities?
Thanks

He is involved with too many stolen horses. One being mine, Lordfurst- his name has been changed to Leibharbor Mann and to another name and sold twice during this time. If he has one horse with papers in his name, or a real bill of sale for the horse, I would be very shocked and probably still investigate the sales and transfers of ownerships by tracing back each past owner. My stolen horse is still under investigation and the horse keeps getting a new name and new location being over 1,000 miles away. If anyone has any information on this horse, please contact me asap.

I personally would have questions on doing business with someone that thinks a good advertisement of their skills as a trainer is a picture of them jumping over a car.

For what it's worth, I know he bought the full brother of my horse from the same breeder I did. She said he paid and I know the horse is nice. White gelding - split in one ear

Hmmm, what a coincidence a very first post from a guest gets such a "quick" negative response...

Yep especially when you look at the "sold" horses on a certain website

Hey, I forgot the " " around the quick. Teach me to be up that late, that was part of my point.

We got some weird bumps on here lately, quite a few of them.

I've never actually met him, but am FB "friends" with him. Before we knew much about him, a friend had suggested I contact him about working with my horse. So I messaged him on FB and he gave me his number to contact him for when he was going to be in the area the following weekend. I texted him the next weekend, and he thought that I was some girl he had contacted from match.com, and then even when I clarified who I was, he suggested that I meet with him at his hotel. :eek: Um, thanks, but no thanks! Shortly afterwards, some girl posted a mostly naked picture of herself to his FB page, and that was pretty amusing.

A few months later, I was boarding at a barn where the BM knew him. She told me about her experience with him from a previous barn, and after hearing her story, I'd never let him come within 10 feet of my horse. Add all of that to the stolen horse controversy that was splashed all over FB, I think it would probably be best to just run the other direction.

It's OK...I laugh about it, too! He's been described to me as "a tiny, little ballerina of a man who wears ladies Secret deoderant." I swear, you just can't make this stuff up! :lol:

No go. I sold a horse to him/BM/trainer of a barn. My trainer advised me not to sell to him, but I was in a tight spot and was moving cross country in a 2 days. I had never heard of him either before that. He was really rough with her in the trial. I was advertising her as green and he put the jumps up to 3'6' and made her face them until she went. Switched her from a happy mouth loose ring to a phelham. He had about 30 more seconds before I told him to get off of her. I told the BM/trainer I wasn't comfortable with her jumping like that and switching bits, but she assured me they were interested and "Just wanted to see what she was willing to do." Later saw the horse on FB packing kids around for lessons, trail rides, etc. No trace of her anywhere now that I can find. Saddens me because I really did like that one. He was a little sketchy IMO. If I had to do it over, I would have never done business with them.

They posted almost the identical post on the diva thread but also included that it was over their horse that they talked about at the beginning of this thread. So I think by "public" they mean that the record is public (in whatever public system arrests are kept) but they know he was arrested because it was their horse so I assume they are a part of the case.

I may be wrong, just what I gathered as there is no article online about it.

I just looked at the Lancaster Clerk of Courts and there is no arrest for a Luis Galindo. Just FYI

Julie710, Does this mean you might get your horse back? If someone buys stolen goods, they do not have clear title and those buyers are out of luck. I have no idea if that is true when the horse has passed through several owners. Good luck to you.

Yeah, I was also wondering if the arrest was related to her horse and if she was going to get it back. Hope so!

Yes. Horse is no longer with him. I can post a link but the details should be online after 9pm. Lancaster PA jail.

Where is the link? No arrest records for Luis Galindo when I do my searching. No court records either..

If this is true, this probably wont be good for his Olympic bid he has been talking about on FB! :eek:

No record with clerk of the court.... Very strange that you would say someone was arrested and they weren't. :eek::no::confused:

Having been in NJ when he was knocking around these parts--I really HIGHLY DOUBT IT. I was privileged to attend the most hilarious "open house" where he showed off his stallion. I really, really HIGHLY DOUBT IT. Even if he could qualify from a country that had no one else trying to qualify ;)

I would like to see the results from an actual government website. Not a site where anyone can contribute information :no:

I agree with what everyone else is saying about him, but think it's very strange that you would say he was arrested but there is absolutely no record...

If it's true post the link to the actual government site.

It is open to the public that Luis was arrested. Go to www.ujsportal.pacourts.us go into magisterial District court docket sheet and type in his full name. It pops up that he was arrested abd being charged with an f3 theft by deception. Even tells you his court dates!

Thank you-not sure why it is so hard to find....should just be on the standard public record site.

No problem Julie. You have to know what you are looking for in the right section. If you go to the wrong section, it will say not found. His docket number is MJ-02102-CR-0000382-2015
