Trina Kenney and her husband Rick Kenney copy and paste horse photos from other people's advertisements and portray these horses as their own animals being sold. Trina has found that if she prices these horses below market value and states they are safe that people are enticed to purchase. Trina also claims she is in financial distress or she is moving or has is selling to get out of the horse business. PLEASE do not fall for her scam.

Trina uses alias names for both her, her husband and her business:

Trina has scammed over 70 people into buying her horses. She has delivered a few horses to unsuspecting buyers and the horses are not the same animal she shows on the internet, but instead horses purchased at the local sale that either are sick, or have issues of not being ridden (ever) or otherwise not useful. To others who purchase, she simply takes their money and never delivers a horse. This has happened to most of the people who buy from her. There is a site known as awhitehorse.com that has 130 plus web pages that chronicle the victims of this woman. You can find it in their forum if you search for Trina Kenney.

Things you should do when buying a horse over the internet:

1. Request a copy of the horses papers and make sure the horse exists.

2. Hire a local veternarian to do a prepurchase exam, even if it is only to pull a coggins, and general overlook of the horse.

3. Check the persons credentials on the internet, if you cannot find this person, chances are they do not exist.

4. Get a hauler that you hire...do not let someone say a friend will do it. Check out that the hauler is legitimate.

trina kenney or whatever her name is now...

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

Liar?????? Susan, I had an almost identical experience with ms. Trina althought her name was Stacey from Bonnie ILL. at the time. Bought a horse that she hauled, supposedly to Ca. but when it did not arrive in Ohio she said had a broken leg then snake bite yet was sound enough to haul across the country??? can't figure that on out. Now, I must go to Ca. to pick up the icelandic that I paid $2,500. for? There is no pony and let's see who is the liar and who will eventually get that snake bite !!!!!!!!!!!! Her life is a lie. It's in God's hands now.

Mentally Ill in Ohio

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

It is funny who calls who ill and mental. Trina aka Stacey from Bonnie ILL accussed me of being mentally Iill and got irrational when I would not travel to ILL to pick up the non existance pony she took my money for. That is so typical of people like that... to accuse what they are or what they are guilty of themselves. I suggest that the more we report to the sherrif and the local CA. District Attorneys office they will eventually stop her. I think some vigal anti will take it in to their hands and stop her. Do you think she sleeps at night? princess off fishing??? fishing for what? more victims?

Trina Kenney

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

Prestige Distribution/Trina Kenney never sent the Hanoverian mare's papers as per the original contract. When questioned about the paper work, Ms. Kenney said she would send it with the horse. Trina was contacted multiple times and would not respond. I asked for the paperwork to be sent to me by certified mail and Ms. Kenney refused saying I owed a board bill. If this were a legitimate horse deal, the papers would not be an issue. I have purchased horses over the internet and the horse was shipped via commercial shipper, according to the terms of the contract. Ms. Kenney does not have a horse named Violet as she does not exist. I contacted the Hanoverian Society and they confirmed that there is no registered Hanoverian born on the date Ms. Kenney supplied. There is no horse named Violet in the Hanoverian database, or the German Verband database that matches the description Ms. Kenney described. Trina Kenney if you wish to respond to this report, please provide facts not fiction. As for you denial about law enforcement issues, please understand since you are currently under investigation I am not at liberty to diclose case information at this time.

Susan from Ocala Florida is a Liar

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

Susan would not accept the horse. She did not send 2 haulers to pick up the horse. We pretty much begged her to take the horse and she refused. She stated that after speaking with Alcina Talbott and Jen Vickers that she only wanted her money back and did not want the horse. We then told susan that if she did not pick up the horse that she would be charged a daily fee for board, care, and feed. She still has an outstanding balance and does not want to pay this.

Susan did forward false information over to the DA and they determined that there was no case and that this was a CIVIL MATTER and that Trina could sue Susan for slandering her and being involved in CONSPIRACY with Jen vickers and Alcina Talbott. She also had her local law enforcement contact Trina Kenney and they determined the same. They even said that Susan should of flown over to resolve the matter, which Susan refused. Susan is a disturbed woman who is slandering Prestige Distribution and Trina Kenney. She is a liar. She has fabricated the truth.

I did want the horse

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

I find it wildly amusing that the person, supposedly an employee from Prestige Distribution, is now saying I did not want the horse. I hired All State Horse Express for $1395.00 to pick the horse up at the address I had and there was no such address (verified by the Chino Police Department). The shippers called Sarah Lorenza aka Trina Kenney at the number she gave to no avail. I was then given an address different from the first address, 1011 Twin Lakes Drive in Wrightwood, CA 92397. The shippers went to the address and there was no horse at this address either. The second address is the address of her father's house (Joel Colombo). I gave Trina an extra $75.00 to have a health certificate and coggins pulled on the mare at Los Cablos Vet Clinic (951) 302-9000. Trina had explained that this was her vet and it would be easy to have them do the necessary vet exam as the mare was being shipped from California to Florida. She never showed up for the appointment. After 2 no shows for the shippers, I knew I had been scammed. These are the facts in this case. I did not get the Hanoverian horse I paid for, nor did I get my money back. As the employee states I wanted my money back, therefore indicating they did receive my check. As for the accusation of being mentally ill, that will now be another issue known as libel and defamation of character.

Susan from Florida has mental problems

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

Susan from Ocala, Florida is a liar and a mentally ill person. She is very sick and does not know what she is talking about. Everything she has stated is a complete lie. She tried to purchase a horse from Trina and decided she didn't want it and wanted her money back inst. She had spoken with Jen Vickers and Alcina Talbott whom filled Susans head with lies about Trina. Susan believed these lies and still continues to this day. Trina is not under investigation and never has been. She is the one who has a restraining order against Alcina Talbott and Alcina also has a warrant out for her arrest, so who is the real criminal. There is no FBI agent investigating Trina and there never was. Trina HAS NEVER BEEN INVESTIGATED AND IS NOT BEING INVESTIGATED!!!!!!!

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

It has been over a year and four months since I sent Trina Kenny aka Sarah Lorenza a check to Prestige Distribution. Rick Kenney (Trina's husband) signed the back of that check. I never had a horse delivered, and have not gotten a refund for that horse. The horse shown in the advertisement was sold to at least one other person. I have spoken with that woman from California and she also does not have the horse. The horse Trina pictured in the ad was taken off Equine World UK. I have spoken with the owners of Glamorgan (Hanoverian Geling) and they were not amused to have their horse's image stolen. The FBI is currently on the case and so are several other law agencies. Alcina nor Jen had anything to do with this transaction. Trina Kenney is the person who took my money by fraudulent means. I may not get my money back but will be happy when judgement comes and Trina, her husband, and other helpers have their freedom curtailed.

THESE ARE LIES MADE UP BY ALCINA TALBOTT WHO IS TRYING TO DESTROY TRINA KENNEY

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

Trina Kenney has a 3 year, court ordered, restraining order against Alcina Talbott. Alcina Talbott and her friend, Jen Vickers, has harasses, stocked, and threatened Trina Kenney for over 2 years. They have tried to destroy her life and her business by pretending to be different people on the internet who file false accusations against Trina Kenney. Alcina Talbott currently has a warrant for her arrest in California for breaking her restraining order. Trina Kenney is pursuing the conviction and arrest of Jen Vickers. Any statements on the internet about Trina Kenney are false and very much fabricated. Trina Kenney is not under investigation and never has been. Please know that everything that has been said and posted all come from these 2 women, not several individuals.

additional Kenney information, new info

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

This information is for the folks who have been scammed by the Kenneys on the Friesian mare or horse purchases. The below information was valid as of 5/26/08. We were almost ripped off by these people. Same scenario as what is reported on this site, Rip-off, by several different people who were scammed.

We were thrilled to be able to purchase such a quality Friesian mare at an unbelievable price. The mare was to be a dream fulfilled for our 13 year old daughter. Our daughter was beside herself thinking she was to own a Friesian. Aka "Kate" Kenney knew the horse was for a child. She didn't care. She would have been more than willing to take our money and break this little girl's heart. This evil, heartless woman needs to be stopped.

We were very fortunate because before I wired her the deposit, I googled the address she gave me for the horse (to arrange transportation) the address was bogus and her answers about it could not satisfy my questions. My bank person was very suspicious of possible identity fraud and requested a copy of Kenney's license faxed to the bank before the wire was sent; which Kenney wouldn't supply. Still, not sure of what to do and wanting the horse for our daughter, we offered to come and get the horse the next morning and pay cash, but Kenney had to go out of town Kenney kept pressuring us to send the money to hold the horse for us, something we wouldn't do until we could verify that a healthy Friesian mare did exist. Kenney became increasingly abusive. Every step of the way, more and more red flags started popping up.

My family is not in the horse business. We just wanted a quality horse for our little girl as a pet and to ride and show. The Kenney's are taking full advantage of novice, unsuspecting people like us. Anyone who has been scammed or almost scammed by these people needs to file a report with the FBI @ www.ic3.gov. which I'm sure you all did.
