    This thread has taken a weird turn.

    Jumper_SoCal, I just figured out "who" you are by looking at your latest blog entry. Was familiar with you on HC. So sorry Varia has disappeared. I know how much you loved that mare.
    "Aye God, Woodrow..."

    Jumper So_Cal, I too am a former HCer and I am deeply saddened to hear of this. Your ponies were sweet and you did love them very much. What happened to your old man? Hopefully he wasn't involved in this whole thing. Didn't you have a baby? All of this is so much stress for a new mom

He got out of that with what to me sounded like a bogus story of how he had been taken to the hospital after a car accident. He managed to convince the show secretary, though, so we didn't get to go after him this time. Our board does NOT want him back as a customer. Thankfully, his recent problems kept him from showing up at our 2012 show.
    Okay, I just gotta ask, WHY would anyone allow ANYBODY to preregister for ANYTHING again if they had been stiffed??? Horse show, dance, dinner for two, anything??? "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me."

    That would make it very easy for potential clients to research and investigate these dubious individuals.
    Yeah, no kidding!

    Isn't Robert Ridlands company called Equisport International?
    He isn't involved with this jerk is he?

    No, Robert Ridland is an individual of high standards and moral culpability. He is not now or ever been involved with that man.

    Some news for all of those interested: just heard Slaughter was beaten up at a horse show & banned from Showpark! Lol, looks like things are starting to turn around for him and it appears he has messed with the wrong people this time, rather, people who aren't afraid to bring it to his doorstep. Amazing... I think that's what they call KARMA Slaughter!

    (p.s. I don't condone or commend physical violence but these are special circumstances; Slaughter is someone who has been (and probably still is) violent and abusive towards innocent animals - insert karma).

    I think "culpability" means "blameworthy"... [post 103], not "responsible," as the post would imply??

    ...and no longer listed as a certified trainer with the USHJA: http://www.ushja.org/programs/tcp/search/

    YAY! Pat ourselves on the back for making these strides against Slaughter!

    I received an email from Don Slaughter this morning requesting I remove my blog posts. I said please send me proof that you have resolved the judgment against you with the previous owner of my horse and then I will consider your request. He replied back to me "Since you have no intention of behaving ethically, honestly, and professionally, I have no choice than to demand that you remove all remarks from any blog within 10 days of the date of this correspondence."

    One would think the ethically, honest, and professional thing to do would be to pay the judgment against him regarding the sale of my horse along with the many other judgments mentioned on this blog and reconcile his USEF fees. I am sure the list goes on...... Its time for Mr. Slaughter to put on his "Big Boy Pants" and take responsibility for the mess HE has created. There is no way possible that all the people on this blog have conspired or set out to get him like he is claiming. Hopefully he will stop being the victim and finally take responsibility for his business practices.

    I can't believe how much he owes you! I thought Jumper_SoCal and I were in the worst shape with 2 missing horses and $10k+ between us... sorry to hear of your loss! I'm floored you actually received pennies. I had two attorneys on my case, trying to collect on my judgement (drop in the bucket compared to yours) and still nothing to this day. I am nearing the 10 year mark since I was awarded the judgement all the while he is still active in the industry, albeit less so, but still... how can he even go on any longer?! I just don't get it.

    OMG so glad I did some research on his guy before I approached him for training. So if this is not the SJ guy to train with in the Moorpark area, then who is? Is there anyone here you guys can recommend? I'm an eventer..., fearless over big solid XC fences but terrified of show jumps so I need to focus on my weakest phase. Find a good straight showjumper trainer (prefer not a HJ) that can help build a riders confidence.
    Any suggestions form those in the know?

    Why does it matter if he is straight? Or do you mean straight as in not crooked...not straight as in not gay?

    I think they mean a trainer that just does jumpers, not one that does both hunters and jumpers.

    Just remembered this thread and thought I'd check the USEF suspension list to see if old Donald Slaughter had finally "tendered payment" to USEF as he claimed.

    Nope, Donald Slaughter is still on the suspension list, 2 years after this thread began..

    Too bad we didn't quote him more often , he has removed all of his comments. They were priceless (in their idiocy and condescension).
