Bernadette Garcia sold my interest in a pony to Ms. Cindy Canace who signed an affidavit stating she knew I was the previous owner and made no attempt to try and contact me. The ponies name was changed back to a previous alias. I am not the only one who Bernadette Garcia has stolen from. She is involved in multiple lawsuits which involves pony theft and has stolen ponies hidden and renamed on her farm in Manorville, NY. 

 

Bernadette Garcia goes by the aliases Bernadette Pupilla and Bernadette Pupilla Garcia. Her farm name has changed three times from Little Ripple Farm to Fox Tail Farm to Cassidy Hill Farm. 

 

Upon reviewing the documents, only Bernadette Pupilla signed the Bill of Sale of High Hhonors also known as Dillinger. [continued below]....
..... Amber Hill Farm owned 25% and did not agree to the price of the pony and should have had to sign the Bill of Sale also. Bernadette did not have free and clear title to the partnership pony. Amber Hill Farm still owned 25% of the pony that is a papered sport horse, registered half welsh and by a famous stallion. There is no way I would have agreed to the price. Even in Bernadette Garcia's emails to me she stated he would be sold for more money, which I was not happy about because I knew of a much higher offer that was presented to Ms. Garcia at Pony Finals. Ms. Garcia refused that offer, without presenting the offer to me because she wanted more money for him. Ms Garcia became very belligerent and told me she would sell him for $1. I never received any consideration for the sale and my assistant has asked multiple times for a copy of the Bill of Sale which was never provided. I was never told he was sold and I discovered his name was changed to back to Dillinger. I was never even paid my 25% of the sale price. I have contacted both Bernadette Garcia and Cindy Canace and both admit I own 25% of Dillinger but Ms. Canace lawyered up immediately upon my notice and proof of my ownership interest. Ms. Canace has refused to let me send a veterinarian to give me a report on the pony and has refused to send pictures or video. Instead of going after Ms. Garcia, she reported me to the NJ police for harassing her? Ms. Garcia has sent me foul messages, emails and has posted derogatory things about me on Facebook. Ms. Garcia refuses communications with anyone. 

 

Documentation:

 

1. Valid Original Bill of Sale from Amber Hill Farm LLC (Elizabeth Mandarino) to Bernadette Garcia Pupilla and Elizabeth Garcia (aka Fox Tail Farm aka Little Ripple Farm aka Cassidy Hill Farm) for 75% of the pony (High Hhonors)

2. Original USEF Ownership/Title to High Hhonors in Amber Hill Farm LLC's name (This document is used to transfer ownership and is still in my possession.)

3. Bill of Sale from Bernadette Garcia Pupilla to Cindy Canace selling 100% of High Hhonors aka Dillinger when she only owned 75%.

4. USEF Transfer of Ownership Affidavit stating Ms. Canace was aware of me as a previous owner and did not give a reason for not being able to get my signature or the High Hhonors aka Dillinger's Original USEF Ownership Papers. 

5. USEF Transfer of Ownership form transferring 100% of the horse from Bernadette Puppila Garcia to Cindy Canace.

6. USEF Transfer of the ponies name to Dillinger from High Hhonors.

7. Link to Rip-Off Report in regard to a stolen pony from the New Jersey Horse Park


8. Link to Rip-Off Report Bernadette Garcia Unscrupulous Pony Stealer Liar Con Artist


9. Miscellaneous Correspondence from Bernadette Garcia and Cindy Canace's lawyer.

 

Please note all of the Horse ID's match (5040258) proving High Hhonors and Dillinger are the same pony.

 

It took me 9 months to find the pony. I was NEVER paid a penny for my 25% interest but instead Ms. Candace was through her lawyer stated I owed 25% of his training and board when I had no responsibility to share in expenses. They have no agreement stating this. The Bill of Sale from Amber Hill Farm transferring 75% of the pony states only profits will be paid upon sale. It does not account for expenses to be shared.

 

I presented all of this information to the USEF and they stated the transfer was valid evven though it is clear that the pony was not transferred properly as the top of the USEF Ownership affidavit states "If the Affidavi does not explain the lack of sugnatures of all recorded sellers, the transfer can not be processed without additional proof".

I am hardly confused.

AUTHOR: Amber Hill - ()

The statements from elizabeth manderino are wrong ..she stole my stallion paying not one penny for carolinas peacock .

The stallion was paid for in full and I have documentation to support that. Actually Bernadette owes me quite a sum of money. My name is spelled Mandarino.

she sent me a blind pony high honors that is in question.

High Honors is not blind and she uses this M.O. when stealing ponies and getting out of paying for them. They are lame, or have other issues. She i the ones very confused as I have texts that say she had a blind rider training High Hhonors. 

she has bred my stallion and paid me no fees for his service.

 

I agreed to pay $25 per live foal and have been deducting it from the amount she owes me. She begged me to do so so her daughter would have money for college.

high honors was sold with her knowlwdge! her secratary asked me to send the 25 percent comission of 750 !!!

My assistant asked for the Bill of Sale which was not provided but was provided to me from the USEF nine months later. The pony was sold without my knowledge and she did not produce the bill of sale and I had to ask the USEF to send me a copy. I am not even sure money did not go under the table as the pony was worth so much more than $2500. School horses cost more than that. 

the crazy em said and agreed that she owed me for the services of my stallion and to take it off of that the 750 or i told her

I have owned the stallion for 2 years and bred him and after the High Hhonors sale she is now saying I did not pay for him nor pay her for breeding him, all of which is not true. 

i sold my 75 percent shares cause i want nothing to do with this crazy  

Per the Bill of Sale she sold 100% of High Hhonors.

women.she has a massive history of drugging animals and many died in her care

This is simply not true as none of my animals has ever recieved a positive drug test, even Humble who was tested for over 1100 substances and nothing nefarious was found. I do not use aliases.

i want nothing to do with the women she is slandering me and making up lies cause she is a board troubled women ..there are two sides to ths story and she is telling made up stories

I have proof and posted the documentation and I have more proof of her scams and cons documented

. .. ..she has my large that she has foundered and has taken off the circuit

Blackie, who I own 75% of and Bernadette owns 25% never foundered and is sound and in full work. The only time her ever saw a vet except for routine care was in Tampa, where the footing is so hard. He became foot sore and I immediately took him to the vet and she prescribed anti-inflammatories and said there werre many cases due to the footing. He is a very difficult ride, which is why Bernadette sent him to me and the only one who has been successful on the circuit with him is my daughter. He needs a pony jock and I will not sell him to a beginner or intermediate rider. 

.she is a danger and no one will deal with her .i was told to get away and i have now she is pissed..she needs help and i want her out of my life she is distructive vindictive and yes crazy..i am sorry  i ever got into this deal with her!! i know she will never stop so i will just do what everyones tells me and stay away for her and hope she gets help!!!

I have a successful business and very loyal customers. Pictures of them and the animals I have sold them are posted all over my facebook pages.

The only pictures I see on Bernadette's pages is Woodland's Magnolia who was shown more than 12 weeks in a row (I lost count) and then was shown at Pony Finals after a one week break. This is a 14 year old pony and should not have been to show after show after show. She may even be older. 

Bernadette's page also has pictures of Precious Cargo who she foundered and let lay in a stall for month after month after month until it had bedsores. It must have been in excrutiating pain but Bernadette wanted her to have a foal for her own selfish reasons. As soon as the pony could stand again, she bred her and she just had her foal. She is not bright eyed and may still be in pain from all of the extra weight loaded on her front feet. I am told she also bred a pony that was in her mid twenties. 

She changes names and breeding records of ponies, says she bred them when she did not and even though I showed proof to the USEF of the same. When she wants to resurface a pony, she retires it, renames it, changes its birthdate and breeding information. USEF tells me they have a file on her that is sitting in the legal department. I have all the documentation to support the above. 

A letter was mailed to various breeders about her to warn people of her. I will attach it to this rebuttal. I had nothing to do with this letter and it was presented to me by a very well known breeders.

Her lawyer, Rachel Mc Cart, refuses to represent her anymore as she has not paid her and I am sure she did not realize what a con artist this woman was. McCart is waiting for a judge in NY to relieve her from representing Bernadette Garcia. 

She owes everyone money; farrier, feed store, shippers and I am sure the list goes on. 

She has conned so many people that it must come to an end. She plays on unsuspecting breeders and for 15 years has been telling people she is dieing of cancer to gain sympathy. I have no idea if she really had cancer or not but I sat by my mothers bedside for three months watching her die of stomach cancer and cancer should not be used to gain sympathy.

I am not revealing any of their stories as that is for them to do. I do have documentation of many of her cons and new people contact me on a weekly basis. They do not go after her because it would cost more in lawyers fees than the amount of the loss. She talks a good game and had me totally fooled. She is a serial scammer and liar (the check is in the mail, my assistant forgot to send it, the wired did not go through or when the check bounces, she says she mistakenly took a check form an old account). She tries to lie her way out of her unscrupulous behavior and people just give up after a while because she doesnt not answer her phone, emails or text and when she does she goes into crazy rants. She has even told some of the people that she has conned that she will turn their ponies into hamburger meat. She told one unsuspecting victim that the slaughter house was on their way to pick up their animal.

She used to call me her fairy godmother because I would do her favors and give her reduced pricing. I leased a pony for her to be shown at Pony Finals for $5000 plus training, stabling and show fees and she never even paid me a commission. In fact, I paid for shipping the pony to pony finals because she told me she did not have the money to do so and she never reimbursed me. 

Run....run far away!
