On August 11, 2018, I delivered three head of my horses for training to a trainer and his wife at their facility located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. At the time of delivery, monies were put on deposit for training and care of all three horses. The written training agreement acknowledges this information. On August 16, 2018, my horse Fork was traded to an individual named to satisfy a long standing debt of another individual. Fork had been priced at $6,500.00 but there was no authorization or approval to trade my property to satisfy another individuals personal debts. Fork had been on the individuals property one night and four days. On August 22, 2018, my horse Whiskey was sold to another individual for "some quick cash". Whiskey had been on the property for one night and ten days. There was no authorization to sell Whiskey at any price or for any reason. There is text message evidence that they had tried to sell him at least one previous time prior to someone else. Left (3) horses with Trainer and on October 9, 2018 after numerous inquiries, Trainer stated they didn't know what I was talking about.
Known Associations of the Trainers are USTRC, WSTRA, AQHA, ARA, ACRA, CRRA, PRCA, IPRA, WPRA, BBR, Lucky Dog Productions and NBHA.
