For those of you who question why anyone would buy a horse sight unseen, let's look at something.
What happens is this:
You find a horse that sounds absolutely wonderful, but it is miles and miles away. You try to see it, but the time factor never works out because the seller is very busy with her "showing". The seller agrees to ship it to you for a trial basis with a contract stating you have time to do a trial, vet check, etc. with the condition that the horse can be returned after a two week trial if it does not work out. There is supposedly a contract with every trial period. How can you go wrong with a signed contract, right??
Evidently, when the horse is found to be unsuitable, then people are rejected in their request for a refund. It is very difficult to do the whole lawsuit process, but some people have and have been successful. Some cannot afford the legal fees, so they feel the best they can do is to just get the word out.
I personally know she sold a horse that was unsound and a danger to children, but she felt she did not need to disclose that information.
If you read the comments on Dreamhorse.com Fraud section or ripoffreport.com, you may find out more information.
It is very interesting, but at the same time, very depressing.
