This woman does not have a website or any credible place she markets her horses. I was looking into one of her fillies and possible another horse but did my homework first, make sure you do too!

Have been in contact with others who have bought from her and who have regretted it and agree she is very dishonest. I was looking into buying from her since I am too in Wisconsin but I did my homework! Offers payment plans and different ways to pay, if you don't like your horse you can exchange it but you won't want to because all of her horses are the same. Poor quality.  She is NOT honest about the temperament of her horses even if they might seem relaxed and calm at her residence. She does not come out and tell you the true level of training of her horses. She sells horses as all quiet and calm but doesn't go into detail about how much training they have really had. 

Another horse seller who has a great background and review bought a horse from this woman and was equally disappointed. Can send anyone her contact information to discuss further. Please be careful with dealing with this person!

AUTHOR: maleigha - ()

I logged on to track down Mary's address and was SHOCKED to see this review! I actually AM  a professional trainer...and not in that "30 dollars an hour back yard ring"kind of way.  I will spare you my resume bit it's a stout one. I left the big time show world to focus on our daughter and to actually have time to ride my own horse. After multiple videos and pictures and a clean vet report I purchased a young frisian Sporthorse stallion from her. I knew I wanted something besides a TB or a damned warmblood import who would inevitably be a lame, genetically defunct flash...Europe keeps the good ones. I digress.  I decided to get something young and keep it for more than a show season. When the shippers pulled up they were grinning from ear to ear...I asked why the smiles and the guy actually said "You'll see!" I am rediculously last horse came from Venezuela...but when that stud  colt walked off the trailer I was floored.  Five years later he goes from the show ring to the trail ( is possible...sarcasm.) He jumps as a hunter, drives, trail rides and gives rides to squealing nieces and nephews. My daughter claims him AND to top it off...he is the kind of drop dead, eat your heart out beautiful that makes people stop and go "oh my god your horse is gorgeous!" Oh...and he is completely sound. I also know that his  full sister is successfully showing on the west coast. I was an east coaster myself. Just do research on your own and use common sense but I had a fantastic experience with her.

Rebuttal to False Report

AUTHOR: Mary Murphy-Babb - (USA)

This Website is called Rip Off Report.  No one got ripped off. Not one of my customers has been unhappy with their horse.  The person that made this report is 100% Dishonest and telling lies that are slanderous.      I can honestly say that I haven't had one  unsatisfied Customer and have  the list of every person that has purchased a horse from me along with their testimonials saying how pleased they are with there new horses.  Again,  please contact me with any questions at

This False Riport needs to be removed as it is slanderous.

Reply to Dishonest Rip Off Report

AUTHOR: Mary Murphy-Babb - (United States of America)

Responding once again to this very Dishonest Rip Off Report to say that all of the Veterinarians in this Area would attest that I am honest and represent my horses as best as I can.

I send out pictures and videos to any Customer that requests so that they can see how the horses rides and how it  moves out.    

To be able to watch a video of the horse being ridden  is representing the horse fully and completely.  The Customer can actually see the horse ridden and most Customers are able to come and ride the horse themselves to evaluate it disposition and training level.  

Again, I am adamant that the the person that filed the initial report is completely wrong and that I do tell the Customer everything I possibly can about the horse they are looking at. 

Please call me at 608-735-4611 if you have any questions or concerns.

Not sure what this angry person is talking about.  All of my Sale Horses are calm and quiet and gentle.

If I offer them as Trail Safe, then they are Trail Safe. 

None of my Horses are  advertised as  Finished Broke.  But they are all broke walk, trot, canter, have been over jumps, know basic Dressage exercises and have been ridden on the Trails.

Any Filly this person would have looked would have been a Weanling that would not have been trained other than Halter Broke.     Weanlings are Baby Horses that don't have any training.

I am 100% Honest.  I do offer an exchange if the Buyer is not satisfied.  Not  one exchange requested in 10 yrs.

I value my reputation extremely high, so this report makes me sick to my stomach.

I can honestly say that I have not had one unsatisfed customer so what this person is saying is an out and out lie. 
I can honestly say that not one Customer that bought one of my horses has had any complaints.
It is just the opposite.  They update me with how much they love their new horses.

My Horses are sold as sound and healthy and I back that up.  I always recommend a PrePurchase Exam so that a Professional Vet is involved. 

Again,  I value my reputation very highly so whover filed this report is lying outright.
