These people (Chris & Shannon) are not the type of people that you want to get involved with. I will not defame them nor write any lies, everything in my posting is true.
Fact: the horses there are not fed enough. Don't believe me? Check out their new and improved website www.smcequestrian.com . Look at the big bay horse, Eddie. He didn't used to be skin and bones like he is now!
Fact: they dont turn the horses out when they say they will, or sometimes, they dont turn them out at all.
Fact: the horses are left in filthy stall conditions for days at a time.
Fact: they use horses that dont belong to them in "lessons" and allow people to ride BOARDER'S horses without asking the permission of the boarder
Fact: they will talk about you and tell lies to EVERYONE they know, even though most of those people know that they are liars
Fact: the fat girl, "Jess, " who watches the barn for them (and calls herself the "manager"), is afraid of horses and to my knowledge, has never even gotten on her own. On their website they say that they sold her the paint horse "Cappy," but they in fact did not.
Fact: they have far more unhappy customers than happy ones
Fact: my horse was injured there and it is still "a big mystery" as to how it happened
Fact: Shannon has a new/different medical ailment every week
Fact: Chris will sell an un-broke horse to a beginner with promises of helping them to train it, which he NEVER follows through with
Fact: Chris will make up any excuse in the world not to get on a horse
Fact: Shannon does not even know how to ride
Fact: the minute you try to get your horse out of there, they will make up stories, call the police, threaten you with a law suit, fly off the handle, and call you names
Here's the thing. They are NICE at first. They seem so genuine and down to earth. But they are disgusting frauds!! All these skinny horses on the property that they say are "rescues." Bull! They are their own horses that they hardly feed.
They lost the law suit that they filed against the other poster on here because they are liars and frauds. They did not have a leg to stand on.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STEER CLEAR. Remember, you get what you pay for. Undoing the damage that you will incur here will cost you MUCH more than the different that you will save in board.
And before all the rebuttals from the accused start pouring in, remember: No, i am not a jealous ex-lover or crazy ex-friend. I am just another victim of their widespread BS.

They shouldn't be able to even own a goldfish let alone horses, dogs, cats & whatever else is out there that is still only alive by the grace of God that they haven't killed yet. I know of 14 animals that have died either killed/shot by them or because of their neglect. It's disgusting how they keep getting away with murder, literally, & nothing has been done about it yet. But I have a strong feeling that something is going to happen very soon since the number of people that they have screwed over has been growing more & more daily. It's sad they turned such a beautiful farm that has so much history in Niagara County & turned it into a eye sore.
