John Braska is a horrible person. He is a liar and a thief. He buys unsafe horses at auctions and then sells them to unsuspecting buyers. He is able to get them to ride well enough to make a video as he is a professional bull rider. Before the prospective buyer comes to see the horse, he drugs it so it rides well enough to sell it.
Here are emails I got from some of his victims:
This happened to me as well. I am a beginner rider and was so excited about the "beginner safe" horse I found on craigslist. I flat out told him i was new at this, and he said this horse would be perfect for me. WHen I came to look at the horse he was perfect, almost too perfect, he would barely move, and htis horse is only 4 years old, i should have know it wouldnt be beginner safe because he was only 4, but like i said i didnt know any better. He drugged the horse so that when igot there to ride he would be calm. [continued below]....
..... The horse is basically green broke, nobody has gotten hurt but i cant ride him, and i cant sell him for what i paid for him. and hte horse was starved when i got him. he is just now filling out. How rude to look someone in the eye and lie knowing they may get hurt. He is a peice of sh*t......
Wondering if it's the same people that posted a mare that was bred to a Friesian. I had found out that she wasn't bred but they were just trying to make a quick buck. (yes it was John Braska).
I know I got one I traded my horse who was a little jumpy and wouldnt stand still for one of his safe mules it thew me off. I got hurt bad. I told them I wanted a horse safe for me and my young grandchildren. You almost cant catch her. I got
screwed over and have never been able to ride her. Oh, and I tried to contact them to ask for advice on her. They wont
talk to me. I tried 5 times to get them. They basically told me to shove it. I told them I was ill and needed a very gentle horse. The horse I traded was a lot better then this one. I could at least ride him and brush him, but not this one. She's wild. I just feed her. Very sad. She fractured my rids and bruised my insides bad. Tell your friend shes lucky she got out.
