I am writing this report to warn everybody about Saddle Rock Stables of Redmond, WA. After some disturbing info about Saddle Rock Stables and it's owners came to my attention recently, I decided to investigate. Saddle Rock Stables is a horse boarding facility where horse owners pay a fee to keep their horses fed and watered and have access to its riding facilities. I found that owners Barabara & Gary Linstedt have held horses hostage for money at their facility. To make matters worse, they have proceeded to not feed the animals in their captivity to extort large amounts of money from their "clients." I came accross documents from King County Animal Control stating that Mr and Mrs Linstedt have been reported numerous times now for not feeding/watering, letting horses roam on public streets, and even abuse. (One time even resulted in Mrs Linstedt having two horses killed.) They are also landlords on the side and have found ways to extort money from their tenants as well. They have verbally abused numerous people including infants and government officials, smeared horse manure and old meat in their OWN house to attempt to vacate their tennants, have gone through tennant's private documents (without permission) inculding bank statements and condo titles. They even attempted to interfere with a house purchase with one of their tennants. After further investigation, I found that Mr and Mrs Linstedt have been sued over SIX times now for their lack of care and detail to the horses boarded at Saddle Rock Stables and for their disgusting behavior towards their tennants. I have also found that Mr and Mrs Linstedt employ illegal immagrants to do their slave work around the facility. Duties include: scooping manure, groundwork, feeding/watering, etc. Mrs Linstedt has also found ways to cheat the credit system of the United States for further personal financial development. After asking around, I also found that Mrs Linstedt has lied and cheated MANY members of the equine community in Washington State which has only murdered her reputation in the area. I am an editor for a large newspaper in the Seattle area and plan to do further investigation on these people and their facility. My daughter is a horseback rider and I can only thank the Lord that she has not been anywhere close to this horrid facility and these disgusting people. I will be warning everybody I know about Saddle Rock Stables and will be in contact with a good friend of mine who happens to be an editor for Flying Changes Magazine. (Flying Changes is the premier equine magazine in the Northwest.) Please "google" Saddle Rock Stables of Redmond, WA and you will only find negative and disgusting reports/photos about the vile people of this facility. Also, there are numerous reports about Saddle Rock Stables right here on this site. Thank you very much for reading and please STAY AWAY from Saddle Rock Stables!

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This is obviously abuse

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

Saddle Rock Stables is the largest Event barn in the area for a reason. Only 4 years old and growing. This private, professional, family owned facility has an honest, caring and friendly reputation that is outstanding in the equestrian community. Over 40 horses and 4 barn locations, quality instruction and training, the USEA show results speak for themselves. The horses have execellent care from our on site living, legal working employees with years of experience and horsemanship awards. Our barns are full. With several years in business and hundreds and hundreds of happy customers there comes one who is not. Unfortunately he has tried to discredit the name of our business and us personally. He has also tried in the court system and was unhappy with the results. The same person can be traced to the negative abuse that has been wirtten on Rip off and the Insider Pages. He now is capable of having others help him dicredit our facility, our family and our lives. We have tried to ignore this behavior. We have been very successful in our lifetime with several businesses and therefore a target for this type of extortion. It is obvious to the educated reader that all of this is from a very sad and disturbed young man with a grudge! This is the worst type of abuse. I ask that anyone interested in the truth visit our business and talk with our many happy customers and friends. We work in partnership with the local school systems, private families and local charity organizations to better the lives of all those who ride at our stable, live in our rentals and work for our family. Please disregard what lies are written and turn this into a positive for all of us.
