Shut down Victory Stables
Shut down Victory Stables
We need this stable shut down because they are overworking horses, underfeeding many, their stalls only get mucked out about once a week. Some of the horses are in terrible condition all the horses share bits and get strangles often. The fields are all just mud, and they have more horses than they can manage, some of the horses don’t even have stalls. They also give lessons and misinform their students, there are teenage girls that don’t know what they are doing teaching lessons. Sometimes during lessons, they train green horses and have five or more people riding in the indoor arena at once. The horses are poorly if at all groomed and have various hoof problems from standing in manure for long periods of time. Here is my google review, and more reasons why this stable needs to be shut down.
Google review: DO NOT board your horse here the conditions are terrible the place always has strangles the fields are full of mud there aren't even enough stalls for all the horses, some of the horses weren't even in a barn they were in a "shed" with a tin roof standing in about a foot of manure. Most of the horses have abscesses and other various hoof problems from standing in manure. The place is absolutely filthy, they don't know what they are doing, I took lessons here for a short while Mabie a month or two and my "instructor" was a teenager that didn't know what she was doing. We never did anything more than trot around the arena. I was put on a horse with an abscess and a clubbed hoof, and he was around 30 years old and may have very well been lame. The horses here are very poorly cared for, and with lesson students, they show you practically nothing, our saddles were too far back, we all held the reins wrong, and our form was horrendous. They had green horses running around the arena during the lesson, and about five or six people in the arena at once, all the horses shared bits, and all the tack was rusted and looked like it was 30 years old and was never clean( just like everything else.) The experience overall was horrible, sometimes when I would show up for my lesson my "instructor" would be nowhere to be seen, and would be a half hour late. Also, there is so much drama at this "barn" they trash talk some of their borders, I've witnessed it happen if you currently have a horse boarded here, get it out before it dies and get it tested for strangles. There are so many safety hazards, their helmets are terrible, and filthy some of the cross ties are uneven or too short, most of the tack is broken or near unusable, there is just so much wrong with this stable for the safety of you and your horse I recommend you NEVER go here.
Please help us save these horses and give them a better life.
