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!
