I had recently hired Gena to help me with my horse who has a bucking problem. I met with Gena at my place where I keep my horse and she seemed like she was a gentle trainer who understood horses. Gena rates are expensive but I just wanted the best for my horse so I hired her to help get my horse through her problems.

Gena came out the next day and started working with my horse on the ground and she did very well and I was very pleased with her until she rode my horse and got bucked off. After Gena got bucked off she started screaming at my horse and whipping my horse with the leather reins. I was horrified and began crying. Gena then came up to me and said your horse is no good and to
sell her.  On the spot I fired Gena.  I am writing this report because we do not need horse trainers like this beating our horses and then saying our horses are no good because they dont know what they are doing. [continued below]....
..... This trainer is about abuse and if that does not work she will just tell you your horse is no good. I dont think I will ever see my money again but that is o.k. as long as people know what she is about around animals.

The Good News is I hired another trainer who is doing very well with my horse. She is a amazing trainer and has brought my horse a long ways.

Fabrications

AUTHOR: SpiritofEpona - (United States of America)

This smear campaign against Gena is completely distasteful and incredibly cowardly. Gena was my trainer for over 4 years and still would be if I hadn't moved out of state. She is the kindest, most patient trainer you will ever come across. Her humility is astounding and she has an unbelievable gift in connecting with horses that everyone has given up on.

She worked with my horses, a paint mare that was a hellion on wheels, and a mustang straight out of BLM. Both horses are better animals because they had Gena as a trainer and mentor. She is a strong advocate against abusing animals and will defend animals against anyone. She protects and nurtures horses, unlike whoever is trying to annonymously trash her hard-earned reputation.

These are just outright lies!

AUTHOR: Barbara - (United States of America)

I am outraged by these reports.  I hired Gena Wasley, Together Training, to help us with a new mare, who happened to be 5 years old and completely green.  I had hired two other trainers before Gena and neither of them had success with her.

My mare, a 5 year old purebred Arabian, instantly took to Gena.  Gena worked with the mare for one year and my husband and I were always present for most of the training sessions.  Gena has nothing to hide, she is a honest horsewoman.  She does not use any type of cruelty in her training sessions.  Gena has an intense love for horses, you can see it in her at all times.  We spent several thousand dollars on our training with Gena and would trust her all over again if we needed her for future training.

These reports are outright lies, slanderous and horrific.  Gena does not beat horses.

Gena is a WONDERFUL trainer!!

AUTHOR: TinaJ - (United States of America)

This report is utterly ridiculous and untrue!  Gena would never hit a horse...ever!  Gena has worked with one of my very spooky horses and she was kind and patient with my mare as we were trying to load her in a trailer.  Gena is a very kind and patient horse trainer!  Anyone would be lucky to have her spend time with their horses!

understanding liable

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

It is important to understand the difference between opinion, slander and liable. 

On December 26, a fake Facebook account was created by someone attempting to gain access to my Facebook page. I saved all communication with the individual (including a copy of the fake profile picture) to my computer and forwarded the information to a business associate. I then reported the fake account to Facebook. This happens to coincide with the liable post on ripoffreport.com.

The address the individual gave as my address was obviously pulled from the internet, it is not my place of residence nor is it my work location, as I do everything I can to protect my privacy on the internet.

It is very easy to prove that the picture posted on February 6th of the horse with the bloody mouth is again, a picture pulled from the internet. The training approach I use is what makes my training method unique from most as I use a bit-less approach.

I am selective about my training locations and work in very public facilities, this not only helps promote my business but helps protect me from liability issues and false claims such as this.

Anyone who has any questions regarding my training methods or reputation should do so with someone who is not hiding behind a veil of anonymity. When I work with a horse, I follow up with a written evaluation using my official letterhead.

In regards to money owed, I am notorious for giving away my time for free and donating my skills to help programs such as Bureau of Land Management, rescue programs and therapeutic riding programs. This information can be found easily in numerous newspaper articles about me written in the Sacramento Bee in 2008 (which also included a video) and again in 2012, as well as on BLM sites.
