I heard of this place through groupon and signed up for a riding lesson at half price. I met with the daughter Ashlen Forbes for the first lesson (I should have been suspicious when she didn't want the physical coupon)

I didn't sign up for additional lessons immediately but finally gave her a check for $160 for 4 more lessons. When I showed up for the lesson, the place was closed and all the horses were gone!

The landlord was there and said that they had moved on 10/31- meanwhile they took my chcek on 10/28 knowing that they were moving in 3 days! I was able to place a stop payment on the check so I'm not out any money but I wanted to put it out there so no one else falls victim to their shady way of doing business.

I saw some other complaints online regarding the sale of sick animals and saying that they were healthy.... I understand thet they relocated to Delaware so buyers and animal lovers beware!

#1 Consumer Comment

Amanda Manown now Mandy @ happy on Hooves

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

 Amanda Manown did not move to Delaware as stated. She is now on Gunpowder Road in Hampstead,MD. She no longer goes by Amanda but Mandy and no longer uses Brummel Horse Farm. She is going by 'Happy on Hooves'. Advertising trail rides in prettyboy. She is on craigslist all the time selling or leasing horses/ponies. Does not stay in one place very long. The pictures she uses are always of her or her teenage daughter, Which is the( professional photographer) she speaks of. She also never carries insurance for the riders.  Would not recommend anyone, especially a child to go near this person.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Amanda goes by all of these names:

AUTHOR: oldenburg_breeder - (United States of America)

Amanda or Mandy as a first name.  Last names include McDougall, Manown, Manow, Mattriciani, Forbes.  She also uses her daughter for a name to sell by, which is Ashlen Forbes.  Her business names have changed many times as well:  Your Next Horse, Thoroughbred Prospects, Brummel Horse Farm, and more.  She also has left a wake of unpaid barn owners behind, including several barns that she was evicted from in Maryland and one in Pennsylvania (Hanover Equestrian Center).

Just do a ripoffreport search on every name, barn, and business name above, and you will see just what a low life this woman is.  She is vindictive and will try to harm barns and horses when she gets evicted.  

For every report, she has her family and friends come on and post fake positive replies.
