Great experience even with a bump or two in the road. We put a deposit down on a pony because we would be making a decent trip to get her and couldn't get there for a few days. In the meantime the pony poked her eye. Dawn called us to let us know and had been to the vet with her. We also had a flat tire and were going to be late the day we were supposed to be there. We called and they were more than okay with us being a little late for a flat tire, even gave us places to go and get the tire fixed so we wouldn't be without a spare. Any how, made it home with the pony and she is great. Great people who really try to accommodate you and find what you are looking for.

I bought a little Arab mare sight unseen, Dawn made me feel very comfortable with the purchase and even helping getting her half way to my place for a very reasonable fee and having her at a wonderful place for 5 days until could make the trip to pick her up, when I picked up the mare she was exactly what I expected, we got her home and rode her the next day and she was everything dawn advertised her as, I would not hesitate to buy another from her sight unseen thanks again Dawn and family!

We bought our sweet boy from Dawn in Missouri and she arranged shipping to Colorado. It felt pretty weird to buy this horse from across the country without riding him or meeting Dawn. We really wanted him so we took a chance and trusted Dawn. Turns out he's a great horse and we got him for a great price and I am really glad I trusted her. He is exactly as she described him. He is sound and willing and he is the perfect partner for my daughter.

My daughter aid this was the best Christmas present ever. I think I have to agree. We had a great time at our horseback riding lessons today at Lazy Creek Ranch. Thanks Dawn Byers for being so patient with us.

Lazy Creek Ranch has saved my son's love for horses. We found Lazy Creek Ranch at time when my son was giving up on horses. We had spent thousands of dollars on a trainer with my son and his pony which left us with a sour unsafe kid's pony. A week before our 4-H deadline I went out to look for a new pony. We found Lazy Creek Ranch which was quite a haul from northern Indiana. I explained to them my situation and they immediately came through with the perfect pony. Not only did they claim to have the pony to help boost my son's confidence they offered to take it to the vet to have all of our paperwork completed for 4-H which is quite extensive in Indiana and haul her up to Indiana the next day (5 days before our deadline). We emailed all of our paperwork and they trailered the pony to their vet that day and headed north the next day to show us the pony. After an 8 hour trailer ride we pulled the pony out of the trailer rode her in our arena and on our trails, down the rode, through the creek, and much more. Much to my surprise she was excellent! She even rode with just a rope around her neck as advertised. They also brought my son several brushes from their tack shop and Pepi spray. Both Jeff and Dawn made me feel very comfortable with the purchase and even guaranteed we like her! Two days later we took her to our 4-H and she was wonderful. We also took her to a show that weekend where she placed in all of her classes. My son refuse to canter a horse for the past two years after 2 weeks with his new pony he learned to canter and now canter's our other ponies as well. His confidence with horses has soared. We have had countless compliments on our new pony from local show competitors to trainers and clinicians. Lazy Creek Ranch was 100% honest of the entire pony's history which was quite extensive. They even gave her past owner's phone numbers to call and talk to. I swore I would never buy from a horse business or trader, but I would definitely trust and buy from Lazy Creek Ranch again. Princess Polkadotness is the perfect pony! She is well loved. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping save my son's love for horses.

I bought a pony for my grandkids in April named Figgy. Love this pony as do grandkids. Everything they told me about him was so accurate. “Figgy” loves my granddaughter and treats her so well just like Dawn told me. I was lucky enough to have them deliver him too plus I was a able to buy a bridle and a child’s saddle. They set me completely up. I also just asked about shots recently and Dawn got back to me promptly. I would not hesitate to buy another pony/horse from here. I appreciated their total honesty!

I was looking at a very nice mare that caught my eye on their page for sale. I inquired on her and talked with them for a few days. I was looking for a trail horse. The mare that I was interested in had been used as a broodmare for a few years now, but had been broke out as a three year old. They went out and saddled her up, in single digit temps for me. Though the mare was everything I was looking for, she needed some refreshing in the saddle, only because she hasn't been ridden. At this point, I am looking for a horse I can get on and go, (with some fine tuning and finishing is fine, but not quite up for re-training). She is bred really really nice, so a broodmare is what she will continue to be, at least for now, unless another potential client that may purchase her gets her riding again. As of right now, things didnt work out between the mare and I, but, they were up front and honest with me from day one. Very sweet people who genuinely care about their horses and only want to find the best match possible for horse and rider/breeder. I am out of state, and I have communicated with them via Facebook, phone and text. Great, great people to work with. I will be following their page to hopefully find my next forever horse. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good honest horse and good honest people. It is hard to find people and service like they offer.

I never thought I would find another safe trail horse after mine passed--how wrong I was - Listed as Big Hank which happened to be the name of my horse I just lost -- it was fate- the 4 hr drive to meet him was worth it - Dawn and I went on a short ride and he was everything she said he was - so I bought him - 2 days later they meet me half way - he was a little hesitant to load in my trailer due to mine having a ramp which he wasn't so sure of - less that 5 min he was in - Dawn suggested we back him out and make him try it again and he went right in the 2nd time - enjoying this boy
