    Wow.
    Another poster who can't fact check.
    USEF reports that he is suspended for bad checks.
    'Banned' would be way too strong a term because as soon as he pays up he's going to be reinstated.

    Didn't he used to be at The Acres? If these accusations are true, yowza.

    My only encounter with him was at a local charity horse show where he oh-so-condescendingly explained to my mom, who has probably been going to horse shows longer than he has, how a jumper class is run.

    Best if you do that ,pronto, don't you think? Rather bad publicity to be suspended from USEF..

    Your excuses and explanations don't come off well.

    "..a partnership that concluded it's business"

    "Despite having a sound position both legally and according to the Federation's own rules, they ruled against me.."
    It sounds to me as if your "sound legal position" and your adherence to USEF rules must have been true only in your own mind. You would not be suspended otherwise.

    I don't know you from Adam, but , If you are incapable of keeping your financial matters straight with USEF (which seems to be the case) there is no way I would have any business dealings with you.

    You don't seem to have paid up.... Big Red FLag IMO.

    "Executive Trainer"??? Really???

    Just a thought about your website Mr. Slaughter...

    When you include a "References" section in your website,
    a Better Business Bureau screen shot (that shows your business is not accredited with them ,but gives you a good rating because no one has reported you to them) is not terribly impressive.
    Especially since that seems to be the only reference you include...

    You too could spend your time not showing horses at USEF sanctioned shows...

    Majority of post removed due to emails received.



    Don does not have a good reputation in this area, and I would not do business with him. A vet friend of mine is owed a pile of $$$$$ by him.

    Oops, looks like I missed out on some drama. To be clear, I am a dressage person and have no direct dealings in the local hunter/jumper scene. Over the years, however, I have run across locals, professionals and one horse Ammies, who have had very negative things to say about this person, and when I saw the local CL warning with enough legit information about the farms he has been, I thought I'd share on COTH. I have no idea who the CL poster is.
