Randy Weinstein of Legends Riding Stable, a public trail riding horse rental facility, is negligant to horses. He owns about 20 + head of horses who stand in straight stalls for 8-10 hours a day in their own urine. Horses stand on uneven broken wood/concrete floors. He had denied the horses of any footcare for more than two months at a time. Lame and injured horses are continued to work regardless of problems.
As I can recall, one horse was growing a golf ball sized tumor in his throat, as I told Randy he ignored any vet attention to the horse. The horse's tumor later became the size of a grape fruit and the horses breathing was strained and irregular as the poor animal had to endure the daily work of riding for hours on end. Some of the horses had a severe case of heaves, that were still forced to work despite heavy coughing and irregular breathing with no vet attention.
The conditions of the horses pasture are appaling as well. 20 + horses are forced to stand in an acre pasture with atleast 2 ft of mud. Horses do not have shelter to run under from protection of the elements. Fences consist of heavily wrapped sharp rusty barbed wire, some of the wire has fallen in the pasture making it a danger zone for horses to easily get legs tangled. The pasture lines up to the old dairy barn which has sharp broken and open windows. One horse was reported to rip his shoulder half open from attempting to climb into the window. The horse was luckily stitched by a vet.
All the horses have a severe case of thrush.
Horses do not recieve attention to their teeth, unless they pysically make their food into slop and lose weight. Some horses have ribs poking through and are in dire need of worming.
Randy has been known to take horses that do not cooperate out of fear and psyically abuse them with his hand, whip, lead rope, etc.
All horses have major rubs, some have damage to their faces from wearing a nylon, non breakaway halter 24-7.
Upon numerous calls made to the ASPCA by other witnesses, Randy has made friends with one of the agents and illegally passes. The ASPCA officer tells the reported phone numbers to Randy.
