Do I have the right to complain?
The people who live beside our paddocks have these dogs, two of them. I think they're the same breed? Not sure though. But anyways, they are always outside, which wouldn't bother me at all, except whenever I go out and ride, they run alongside me and the horses, barking and snarling, the hair raises up on their backs. And the faster we go, (walk, trot, canter, gallop) the more aggressive they get. It's always just been annoying, and honestly a little frightening, but tonight, when I was riding they came up under the fence and double teamed me and my gelding. My gelding is a 14 hand crossbred pony of questionable background, and they came at us, barking and snarling, like they do over on their side of the fence, but this time they were on our side, snapping at my pony's legs. I put on my big girl pants either way, and charged at them with Ben until they decided to go back to their side. Thinking about it now, I'm not sure if I did the right thing, but I am pretty mad, do I have the right to complain about it?
