I went out to this woman's farm to look at a horse. Worst decision ever. After she was rude to me & wouldn't show me the horse, she then proceeded to start using foul language infront of her young child and my child. I was originally suppose to meet the barn manager there, but since she was running late, you think that the actual owner of the horse and farm would of assisted me, which was Shannon. Instead of her trying to help me purchase her horse, which I was very interested in, she was very difficult and rude. I drove more than an hour to get there, I had cash in my pocket. I just wanted to see him out of the pasture, saddled and ridden about for awhile. Since it was her horse, you think she would of been able to do this. She wasn't.
So I followed another link on this forum & found that now she is associated with a known horse trader. He too, I had a previous bad experience with. Is anyone decent or honest anymore?
Since our horse community is small and our children are around the same age, people talk and the kids talk too. My daughter has heard all kinds of horrible things from "other" children at the shows, 4H, etc. He isn't just dishonest business wise, but is very abusive to the female gender too. Which I have seen at shows before, but who am I to approach a 6 foot man with an unpredictable temper. His & other female children have had to deal with his verbal, mental & physical abuse. I know he has 4 children, 2 boys & 2 girls. Only the boys interact with him, the girls won't. I hope for her sake, she keeps her child safe. If he is abusive to his own kids, I can only imagine how he treats his girlfriends children if they are girls.
Both of them need a wake up call. The other forum that I was just reading mentioned CPS. I hope for the childrens sake they really were brought in to help and someone wasn't just saying that to get a rise out of these two.
I can't wait for show season to officially start, it will be interesting if these two show up together. They really have nothing to gain coming to the shows, nobody wants them their as it is. People didn't care for either of them before and now that they are together, it's just a disaster waiting to happen in public for everyone to see. I guess it will validate the "chat abouts" though and rumors will be proven true. I have a feeling they are going to give everyone something to talk about even more.

lady you are such a liar. i board at that barn and was standing behind shannon when she told you the "barn manager" which there was no barn manager this person was running late. and i am going to tell you shannon does not use foul language in front of her child let alone in front of anyone elses child. you are ridiculous and are a known trouble maker in the horse community in the surrounding areas. should really watch what you say about people since because they can and will have you arrested for false acusations.

You most certainly we not standing behind her! No one was there except for my daughter, myself, her young daughter and her.
And I highly doubt you are a supposed boarder, I knew a few boarders that kept their horses there. I told them all about this after it happened & they weren't surprised one bit that she used foul language and was rude to me. That's why they don't board there themselves anymore.
You very well indeed contradict yourself also in one of your statements above. Was there or wasn't there a "barn manager"? That's what she told me, are you saying she was lying about having a barn manager running & that she was running late? That seems silly for her to lie about having or not having a "barn manager" that was running late to meet me, especially since I spoke to her barn manager the previous day to set up the appointment. Or is that your opinion that she didn't have one? Either way, you are the ridiculous one & the trouble maker, not I.
And for the false accusations, I've made none. That is what happened when I traveled all the way there to look at a horse to purchase from her. Mind you, it was the second time I traveled all that way to look at this horse. I should of learned my lesson the first time when I went there & encountered her and her rudeness.

Just for general information, here is a copy of a post that explains much from another forum.
Aren't the two people this forum is about the ones who run the place on robinson rd? S M C Equestrian Center Inc I believe the sign says, I believe they specialize in pony parties but I hear they no show. There is a Manta website for SMC Equestrian Center that lists some of these names so I assume its the same. So I'm thinking this means that Whites Equines(ripoff reports) and Shannondoah Farm(repeated public ugliness all over town and drunken behavior dujour) have combined into S M C Equestrian Center Inc., to do...pony parties for small children?!?! That's.... Intetesting?

something wrong with this picture. for someone to supposedly come out twice to look at a horse from a distance to make a ride to see a rude person who uses foul language? lady get a grip. If you know all the boarders that were there then you know who I am number one, you say you live a distance away, ha how would you know anybody at the barn if you live such a distance. Anybody who knows the person in question knows what type of parent this person is and it is nothing what your describing. your full of horse manure. Mind your business and stay out of hers. Grow up and act like an adult. Certainly you didnt that day and I can say that because I was there and can tell exactly what your actions were and they were not pleasant from the moment you walked out of your vehicle.

Rip off reports aplenty. New Manta website, grandpa must be so proud of who or what he bought huh. He paid too much and it seems he knows it by now. And what about the SMC Equestrian Center other website, the one with the pics of someone elses farm on it? That's a good laugh, loser using pics from the last woman he tried to live off, thats sad, laughable and lame, just like he is. And can you say fraud, advertising with pics of at least one stolen horse, name changed of course but hes a registered qh, hopefully his real name and age aren't lost. the entertainment continues, even if you discount the gossip the clear fraud, manipulation of the legal system only to lose as usual, general dead beat behavior, and the generally scabby reputation of the place and these people is plenty.

I have read most of these comments that have been posted over the last year and I would have to disagree with the majority of them. I believe that the computer makes it all too easy for bored people to attack and write negative comments about one another. If you had a bad experience with a business and you post it online that is one thing but to personally attack people is another. Please find something better to do with your time. As for SMC Equestrian I do board there and have for over 6 months and the things that are being described I have never witnessed. Both the owners have been more than willing and helpful in regards to the care of my horse. They both have gone out of their way numerous times to help when I have had issues arise while riding/training my horse.

I honestly have not experienced any problems at the barn. I absolutely love it there and will continue to board with them.

If you are reading these posts I ask that you take all the negativity with a grain of salt and come to meet the owners and use your own judgement. As I can assure you that all of us have people that dislike us and have said hurtful and insulting things about us in our lives but we wouldn't want to be judge based on what they have said.

I just ask that you be fair.

Just Bored - if you have been there for over 6 months then you and I were there at the same time.

I have photos of the conditions of the farm and the stalls and since I was there several times a day, I saw a lot of things.

I've seen horses beaten because they got their foot stuck in a water bucket. I've seen sales to folks who had no business owning a horse because they didn't even know how to pick out a hoof. I've seen many days when water buckets went empty unless I filled them. I've been there from 5:30pm to 9:30pm when the owner and her boyfriend were off the property and the only horses fed were mine because I fed them!

I honestly like the tone of your message. I agree that there is a lot of personal mud slinging done on here, but those of us who previously boarded there are speaking the truth.

The farm presented a nice family image but it was more of a business than a family. The concern about making lots of money far out weighed doing the right thing for the horses. Sadly, the condition of the front ring is horrible, the stalls have concrete walls and the horses have far too much time in a stall instead of playing in the pastures like a horse should.

Anyone other than me pondering the significance of the rainbow design on their website? Is that a reference to one of this farms many many past names or perhaps something else? Just trying to get in touch with the softer, more humorous side of a certain someone.

I'm not here because I want to say something nasty, I was just curious about SMC Equestrian Center since it was mentioned a couple of times. Chris White is listed as a trainer and instructor there but I honestly don't know much about him. A boarder who was there mentioned that it's difficult to schedule a lesson with him since he's so busy, but I never really tried to schedule a lesson. The place seemed like it needed a bit of work the last time I was there, but that was over a year ago. I spoke with who I assumed was Chris on the phone and I asked about lessons and leasing and I mentioned the boarder I met (not saying anything bad about her) and he basically said that this boarder was crazy and is no longer there. Honestly, I don't know what to believe, but I'm not so sure I'm interested in this place anymore.

I totally agree! I had 2 horses there for about 3 months and they went downhill fast! The best thing I did was get them out of there!
