Owner Desperate to find Stolen Yearling Filly "Raven Ridge".
Please see the thread on the Sporthorse Breeders Forum;
"STOLEN FILLY..I need help!" by rapazzini09
This filly is being advertised for sale on several internet sites,as a hunter prospect and apparently does not belong to the person who is trying to sell her. Please take a look at the thread. Being in the H/J world,you might be able to help
get the word out.
I think people would be shocked by the collection of stories about this big name breeder over on the sport horse breeding forum. I know I was. If what the filly's owner says is true, what's going on is pretty disgusting.
People should be well aware the the SO in question has warrants out for her arrest for writing bad checks, has been taken to court by a very big name trainer (who quickly won his judgment, but has yet to collect) for non payment issues, has now lost several civil judgments (criminal at this point perhaps? since she's now taking stolen property with her wherever she pleases, as well as advertising it for sale?), and has left countless people in the dirt with worthless foals because she's failed to pay registries to have breedings recorded appropriately. It's a real shame, too, since the stallion is so nice. At this point, even people thrilled with the outcome of their breedings with her stallion(s) are shaking their head at her because they feel so bad for the countless others she's screwed.
The hunter community should keep their eyes open and call the cops if they see her at a show. She has active warrants. She needs to be arrested, but the state she resides in "has other priorities". Unfortunately, that's sending the message that she can ignore court orders to return horses that don't belong to her and simply sell them in the meantime.
Whole new levels of crazy...
Hoping for a swift resolution to this fiasco, and a large serving a justice to the SLEW of people who've been screwed over the past several years by this woman.
I notice that there is a "contact us" link on the BigEq site. Perhaps the real owner should communicate with the site and try to get the ad taken down. She should be able to provide evidence that she is the real owner
Ads on ??? GFF,BIGEQ,warmblood.com, dream horse, equine now, and youtube.
I wrote to BigEQ and plan to write to all the other sites and so should everyone else too! Take time today! Get the word out on other BBs.
I personally had a horse sold to another person who https://chronofhorse.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif "couldn't believe her "luck" finding one of my homebreds for such a price!!! "
It was civil. Stealing a used bike would have been more of a crime!
I never laid eyes on my horse again.
So, uh, she said she forwarded my comment to her lawyer and wants my name so they can track me down. Should I be worried? No, didn't tell her my name... deleted the email. I can't think of any way she could actually find me.
I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.
