Blake Skole Reviews

  • Dec 18, 2018

Mr. Blake Skole is supposed to be a professional Arabian horse trainer but after seeing what he did to my horse after being at his facility for 2 ½ years I would say he is an abuser of Arabian horses. I had a 2 year old gorgeous grey Arabian horse at his facility for training and marketing. I brought home a scared, abused and aggressive 4 year old.

At his facility he wants to know when you are coming to see your horse and I now know why. I went as often as I could to check on my horse in his care and found him clean and well groomed each time but I did let him know I was coming. He was there for training and marketing so I would find him in an upfront stall, clean with hay until one day I showed up unannounced. I found my then 4 year old horse in a foot deep manure filled stall in a back dark tiny stall way out in an old junk barn. He had no food and was wearing a cribbing collar UPSIDE down.

This horse is now a cribber, weaver and a very scared horse.

I believe he was separated from all other horse, never allowed out and never worked with in anyway. This horse was to be in show training, going to shows and being marketed to show homes. None of this was done This horse was severely abused regarding his feet, never taught to load in a trailer, in which would have been necessary IF Blake Skole would have been showing this horse to market which was what he was being paid for.

As a trainer Blake Skole is extremely dangerous because he is a good salesman and can sell himself to the unexpecting Arabian owner. He in his way of training or lack of, has caused this horse to become a weaver and a cribber with great fear in the human race.

Get contracts; check on trainers often “unannounced!” Demand results and take no excuses. Blake Skole stole this horse’s show future. He did irreversible damage mentally to this animal and he lied constantly regarding what was being done in my absence. Do not trust him in any way!!

An horse was in their care for several years, tho I was not able to visit often when I did he appeared well and happy. One day I showed up unexpected (you will notice they DO NOT like to have you show up expected in contract). And the horse was not in the stall he usually was in, he was dirty and his mane and tail was in horrible shape. The stall was a foot deep in manure and flies present. Tho they have a fly control system. His feet had not been cared for for months and were broken and chipped. So I started some investigation.

Even tho I had been billed for vet care (coggins, shots) no vet had records. Horse is now a cribber from not being let out of given anything to do while in stall. Horse is not an old horse and now I have to deal with cribbing forever. Tho they were hired to show and train this horse got home without any training including trailer. Horse appeared to not even know how to play or interact with other horses as a horse should. The horse had been kept in a stall 24/7 let out only for short times and basically kept separated from animals and humans for the entire time in their care.

Horse is now in training but is at the least 2 years behind due to the care of this facility and the "trainer". Please Please stay away or at the least check on your horses often. Read all contracts and double check everything this facility and "trainer" says thoroughly!
