Lynn Bonar Hamler with HHH Dressage is simply not an upstanding horse trader. She has no desire to make sure that you and the horse are a good match and will refuse to take the horse back even if the horse is not as she advertised, even if you've only had the horse a few weeks.  She will tell you the horse has pull a cart on public roads, has been on day and night rides, riden and trained in "correct" dressage.   She will send 15 second video clips of the horse pulling a cart, being riden but you never see pictures of the horse actually on a trail, or pulling a cart down a public road.   She will tell you the horse is calm, gentle, with no vices but will refuse to stand behind what she sells.

 She will blame you and tell you that you need to take riding lessons, she will blame your trainer, but takes no responsibility.  She sold us a horse that she said was very calm and gentle, not reactive, had been on day and night trail rides, was riden by a young girl and was 16+ hands.  We got the horse, he's 18+ hands (we would have never bought the horse based on his size alone), the horse bolted the first time we rode him and has almost every time after, last time he bolted someone was standing in the arena and just shoosed another person, he reared up and struck out at a person leading him, this all happened less than 1.5 months of bringing him to our home.  There is absolutely no way this 18 hand horse that bolts from a shoosing noise was riden by a young girl, had been on day and night rides or driven on public roads.

The horse would have bolted and injured or killed someone or itself.  I asked this lady if she would be willing to take the horse back (with shipping at our expense) as this was clearly not the kind of horse she knew we were looking for, she out right refused to work with us and went so far as to blamed us for not being good riders and blamed our trainer for screwing up the horse. This lady clearly does not care if the buyer and the horse are not a good match, it is simply all about the money and she will tell you anything and everything to make the sale.     I would take head and think twice before ever buying a horse from this person. By the way, the horse was $15,000.

Rebuttal to report about Lynn Bonar

AUTHOR: Lynn Bonar - (USA)

 Anonymous cyber bullying seems to be alive and well. Barbara McConnell didn't bother to mention that she had previously purchased the same type of horse from me and sent us texts and pictures of how happy they were with the horse. She then decided she wanted another horse just like the one she had already purchased. After receiving the new horse, she claimed someone shook a plastic bag behind the second horse and spooked him. That's not a smart thing to do to any horse and every reaction is different. Obviously they need some guidance on safety around horses. I have an excellent reputation. I've been in the horse business since 1976 and have had my own business at my farm for 35 years. My career includes being chosen to judge at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. I was also a judge at the 2010 World Equestrian Games. I have won my bronze, silver and Gold medals with the United States Dressage Federation. 12 times I have traveled to Europe to choose horses for clients and fly them to the U.S. Over the past 10 years, the world famous Olympic coach Conrad Schumacher, has come to my facility to instruct us. He states that I have a gift for picking out good horses. Dr. Riddle from the famous Ky Equine Veterinarian clinic, Rood and Riddle, purchased a horse from us, the same type of horse as Barbara, and just loves his. Also "Gentle Jungle", in Hollywood Ca., purchased 2 of the same type of horses ,to be in the movies and love them. The list goes on. I take pride in finding and training quality horses. I still stand behind representations made when selling her the horse as being factual. Anyone can make a good horse behave badly.
