“Farringtons Coloured Horses”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by blossom30 (1 review written)

I am really sorry to hear about all the problem horses sold by these guys but just had to write to tell you about my experience with them. I went looking for a cheap happy hacker and chose a mare called Cilla, now Blossom and paid £1600 for her. Bloss had only just been broken at 9, that was obvious, but as a relatively experienced rider that did not put me off. I have now had 3 years with my 'pocket rocket' who has turned out to be a brilliant pony with not a mean bone in her body. I am not… Read Full Review

“Buyer BEWARE! ”

Written on: 20/01/2014

After a very bad personal experience dealing with these people I feet other people should be warned. I brought about two years ago what I was told a quiet happy hacker ideal for a novice getting back into riding. From the day it was delivered the nightmare started. The horse turned out to be the total opposite from when i trialed him at their yard. The horse was returned and i was promised a refund or a replacement, Neither of which materialised so i took them to the small claims court and won… Read Full Review

This company will carry on ripping people of like myself even thou i won my court case they still owe me money which is looking like i will never get back. Just hope that no one gets seriously hurt or even worst killed from being sold a totally unsuitable horse or pony . I have also spoken to trading standards as these people need to be stopped!

sorry about that, but in the good old days, we went and rode the the horse, vet, checked it, and did everything else, to assure a safe horse. who in there right mind is gonna "order a horse' WITHOUT RIDING IT, SEEING IT, ETC..that is plain ignorance or your part. You don't jus take the word of someone else and buy something without a test drive. maybe next time you people want a horse, you will do your homework and make sure the hose is something that your daughter can handle or that she can't. not everyone is at the same riding level. Yes, they may have decieived you, but you fell fo it. When I buy a horse, I ty and get a video first, if possible, study the video, send it ouit to a professional of that breed, and go from there. Hell, thre is a horse I want in Selah, but you think im jus gonna order it and have it elivered to me without driving all the way there and riding it myself. I don't think so. WAKE UP!!

In response to your comment i did drive all the way and look and ride the horse myself as the horse was for me as i don't have any children. I certainly would never "order a horse" as you put it. So how you can say thats "plain ignorance on my part" when you know nothing apart from the comment i left. Am not quite sure what your agenda is. Yes the dealer did deceive me but i wasn't the only person they deceived.

I too was ripped off by these people and it seems very funny that you have a lot to say on these dealers when you have no personal experience of them yourself. I wonder if one of the Farrington crew put you up to it or are you even one one of the Farringtons. Keep your bloody nose out out of situations you know nothing about.

“Be Warned if your horse is not suitable you will have...”

Written on: 06/11/2013

Horses need to be worked with and generally handled to be assessed correctly and matched to the right owner. We bought what we thought was a nice placid easy to handle horse and tried to work with her but we could not win. The only way to pick her feet up to get the farrier to be able to trim them was with a vet to give 2 lots of shots before the farrier - who is excellent - could get near her rears.The advisor offered to take her back and 'exchange her' the only way to get him by phone is to… Read Full Review

Buyer beware, i had a horse from Farrington's a while ago i had dealings with the owners who seemed nice enough people but turned out to be a pair of rip offs.

I to bought a horse from these people, it was ment to be suitable for a novice but that was far from the truth it bolted off with me leaving me on a busy road with a dislocated arm i just thank god i did not put my small children on this animal as that was what it was intended for a family horse. I contacted them and they couldn't care less so was forced to sell the horse at a loss to myself. I understand that him and his wife have separated she is selling horses to people that are also unsafe and he continues to screw people over buyers beware of both of them she runs under MTF horses and he still runs under Farringtons horses.

I can sympathize as we had a similar problem. I have lost alot of money and had a very difficult year with the horse that we were sold. They are unscrupulous people who are interested in a fast turnover of horses. They took a haflinger in as a part ex that was a nightmare, we had considered her as an 'exchange' horse to replace the mare sold to us but when we saw it in the yard it was obvious the previous owner had put it with them as it has problems-wouldn't take a bridle and bucked the stable hand off big time!!! We sold our difficult horse ourselves, for very little money, these folk do not take enough time to fully assess their horses they have one priority and thats MONEY. They are bad news.........

“Don't trust them”

Written on: 25/08/2013

I bought a horse from Farringtons last year, it was stated in the description she was a confidence giver etc, but unfortunately turned out to be a bucking bronco!, so we sent her back. We also realised she had had a foal recently weaned off her shortly before buying which our vet confirms, although we were told she had had a foal they failed to inform us exactly when despite being asked several times - we never got a straight answer and that remains a fact to this day. 9 months on we're still… Read Full Review

Hi, Thanks for your offer of advice, these people are quite unbelievable, they knew this was a present for our kids and still they act in this disgraceful manner ,I've sent them a letter by stating if nothing is resolved within 28 days we're taking them to court.
I would strongly advise people to think twice before dealing with these people

Hi,

Please ensure that you list all the people involved in running Farringtons Coloured Horses as this will increase your chance of getting payment. Also depending when you purchased your problem horse it may be worth adding the ltd company down that he has opened......

the only way to deal with these people is in court and reporting them to trading standard. Hopefully trading standard will finally get the message and close them down.

Court wise is a easy case. please contact me and ill provide the details you need to succeeed against these people. lots of people have taken them to court and won.

I agree with you I would recommend people to go else where. It sound we have had the same problems with this company. The worst thing about it they knew the pony was for a kid... I could go on and on but it makes me feel sick how they can get away with it.

“Buying a cob from Farringtons”

Written on: 13/02/2013 by Tasshie (1 review written)

I went to farringtons coloured cobs as a rider who had lost my nerve and needed something rock steady and bomb proof to try and regain some of it. The staff there, particularly [name removed], were so helpful and kind and made completely sure that I bought the right cob for me. They also give you a guarantee where you can return the horse within a suitable time limit if it turns out to be not what they say, however, I was astonished to read that someone is 'taking them to the small claims… Read Full Review

Farringtons do not give a guarantee at all. Check out there website it clearly stated its your problem if the horse if not what we said. I would not trust them as far as i could throw them.

Moody123's reply to Farringtonsarenottobetrusted's Comment

Written on: 19/03/2013

There are no guarantees with anything in life and know that they do exchange if the horse is not what they say. I had a horse from them a year ago and he has proved to be a real gentle, loving cob. I think with all animals it takes time for horses to settle and for you to bond with your horse some people expect this to happen overnight. I have had a good experience with Farrington's and would not hesitate to recommend them. All companies have good and bad feed back my advice is make your own mind up.

I also agree that it take time for horses to settle in but you only have to read the reviews on this site and a number of others, the people who have good horses which you could count on one hand got lucky the rest of the people that got a rubbish deal and left with horses that have been bought from a sale and broken quickly then sold as confidence givers are no so lucky. This dealer should not be selling horses they dont care for them and they dont care who gets them children, grannies people with nervous issues they just want your money. Good luck to who ever buys one you gonna need it.
