Hampton Water, which hosted the weekend at Deep Hollow Ranch for the influencers, has commented on the situation, saying they are “outraged by the events that took place at Deep Hollow Ranch and their treatment of our good friend, Remi Bader.” The Hampton Water team and our outside suppliers were not made aware of the ranch policies prior to the event and we would never put anyone in a situation where they would feel uncomfortable.”

The New York ranch has two websites, including a blog linked to their Facebook that shares the amount of weight a horse can carry.

The chart notes that the smallest weighing horse, weighing 700 pounds, can carry a 105-pound person, while the largest horse, weighing 2,000 pounds, can carry a 300-pound person.
The blog also includes a list of the best horses for “plus-sized riders.”

One user commented, “Your decision to shame a customer and use hateful misogynistic insults says who you are as a company.”

Remi traveled with multiple other influencers, including Brooks Nader, Ella Rose, Jijordyn, Kit Kennan, Ruby Saracino, and Agnes Kudokis.
When Remi was rejected, none of her influencer “friends” went with her, instead choosing to let Remi leave alone.
The TikToker has said in multiple videos that she will never understand why her “size can actually bother someone so much.”
