Ron and Gail Barker of the Arizona Horse Fair Horse Show Fail to Pay Vendors

Arizona Horse Fair Horse Expo Show | Ron Barker | Gail Barker | Alberta Canada | Kamloops, British Columbia

Notice of Non-Payment of Vendors by the Arizona Horse Fair

Ron Barker and Gail Barker of the Arizona Horse Fair Horse Expo based in Alberta, Canada, failed to make complete payment on over $6,000 worth of sound equipment for their Arizona Horse Fair horse trade show at WestWorld of Scottsdale. To date, we have not received payment beyond the initial deposit required to reserve the equipment.

We have called and sent multiple emails to contact Ron Barker and Gail Barker with little or no response. Sadly, nothing has been paid to date (this page will be removed when payment has been made).

These are the only promises we have received from Ron since the March 29-April 1, 2018 Arizona Horse Fair:

April 5, 2018
Sorry we have taken a couple days off after the show and will get everything straight by weeks end or first of the week.

May 4, 2018
I’m in Canada right now and will be back in Arizona next week and will get this paid by next Wed.

May 4, 2018
This is really tacky and unprofessional that you would send this to all of my employees! If you want to get paid ALL email must be to me and NOT my employees! I have been out of the country and will deal with this next week!

June 12, 2018
I understand your frustration but we just don’t have the money right now and we will get you paid ASAP hopefully by the end of June.

After some research, we found:

  • Chilliwack Heritage Park has not received any deposits or reservations to hold the venue for the October 2018 Mane Event Expo even though the Mane Event is selling tickets.
  • The Arizona Horse Fair's insurance company has sent out notices to their event venues that their bill was not paid and they will be cutting off their insurance.
  • The event rental company for last year's show in Chilliwack, BC, has served Ron and Gail Barker with papers for not paying for last year’s event to the tune of $9000.00.
  • The event rental company for the March 2018 Arizona Horse Fair in Scottsdale, AZ still has not been paid in full for over $6000 in services.
  • In 2005, Ron Barker of the Arizona Horse Fair, received a lifetime market ban for defrauding investors. The British Columbia Securities Commission found that he violated securities laws when he committed fraud and lied to investors in raising more than $2.3-million from individuals in the Kamloops area.

  • Ron Barker also had seven charges imposed for violating bankruptcy laws. Click here for details.

The Arizona Horse Fair is planning another horse show at WestWorld of Scottsdale on March 29-31 of 2019. We warn all vendors, sponsors, or attendees to consider that you may not be paid in full by Ron Barker, Gail Barker, of The Arizona Horse Fair.
