We took our horse to Nicole Chastain and boarded her there for about a year. Then we slowly hear other people at the property telling us how wonderful our horse is to ride. We found out that the owner has allowed our horse to be ridden by total strangers after we explicitly informed her not to do this. She signed a contract with us telling us that she would protect and provide a good shelter for her. We hired a horse trainer to ride and exercise her 5 times a week. There are a lot of reason behind allowing total strangers to ride our horse but she never offered us any. We eventually took her out of there and put her in a safer place. Boarders beware. This facility could be doing this to your horse too without your knowlege.

The trainer that we hired was totall recommended by Nicole Chastain.

AUTHOR: Emma - (U.S.A.)

Again, another lie posted on a public website. Shame on you Nicole Chastain. You're nothing but a liar. Accusing us of hiring a trainer not approved by her. No where in the world would a stable/ranch owner allow just any trainer to come in to their facility and make money without the owners getting a waiver form filled out just in case they injure themselves in their jurisdiction. We did not know the trainer that we hired. She worked for Nicole Chastain and as a matter of fact they have more than one trainer that work there. Both trainers that we hired were from her staff. She is a ball face liar and can't even back up what she says.

I have 2 trainers that vouch and also say that what happened to our horse did happen under her full knowledge. I also have 3 other people that say that they rode our horse while we were not at the stable. We might not be expert horse owners because we bought the horse of our daughter but we are not totally oblivious of common horse ettiquette. You just don't lend boarded horses to total strangers. That's the bottom line. If she is saying that she had no knowledge of this going on, again, she got caught in her lie about being a good owner and always being there at the stables. That means she was not there since this happened quite a bit.
Only the truth will pervail.

Canada Larga Stables and Nicole Chastain rebuttal to Emma from Sylmar

AUTHOR: Nicole - (U.S.A.)

I, Nicole Chastain, manager of Canada Larga Stables, did everything that my boading contract provided for the horse Glory and her owner, Emma. They came to my barn with the exact same complaint they are making about me and my facility after leaving a previous facility. We do not make any agreements about excercising or training horses, only boarding and referred her to a trainer who worked out of our facility to provide excercise for the horse. They used her for a few months and then switched, not on our recommondation, to another trainer who was working out of our stables. That trainer is the one who, alledgedly, let someone else ride their horse.

We live on the property, are proven professionals and try to monitor all activity on the ranch but can not possibly be here every minute of every day-if someone else rode their horse it was only under the guidance of their "hired" trainer. When a horse owner contracts a trainer to work with their horse all agreements about riding and training that horse are between owner and trainer, not the boarding facility.

Our contract stipulates nothing about riding nor does it state anywhere in our contract that we will prohibit riding, we are not the horse's owner, it is not our right to do so. This horse belonged to people who are not seasoned horse owner's and being such have no idea what a boarding vs. trainer's responsibility are. Furthermore, at no time was this horse out of the trainer's care and the horse was being actively advertised for sale which justified the trainer letting people try it for possible sale, if that did ever even happen.

I feel, as do the trainers at our facility, that these remarks are slanderous, unfounded and completely uneducated. We have the written contracts that prove we provided exactly the services we said we would.
