OMG! I can’t believe it, Horse & Hound have today exposed Damien Harris (Darbyshire) of Ghabar Stud! He has brazenly admitted to them that he hides his assets and money to avoid paying his debts!
When he realized he was about to lose the case against me, he gave in and formally agreed to pay all my costs and damages, but he had already hidden everything! He then took pleasure in telling me that he had no assets in his name and if I wanted my money all I could do was make him bankrupt.
Damien’s original claim, which was rejected by the court, was about my advertisement for Diablo and his FEI status. Only when this failed did Damien try to divert the case to be about unsoundness, which was also rejected. Just to be clear, Diablo was sound and in full work when I sold him and Damien did NOT have him vetted on arrival in the UK.
I am so glad I resisted his pressure to sign a confidentiality clause, now I can tell the world what he did to me and hopefully prevent him from doing the same to more people.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, DO NOT HAVE DEALINGS WITH THIS PERSON!
