I wouldn't pull a prank on my poor horse like that. I'd flat out go to the people I suspected. No way I would risk my horse getting hurt.

You can just take a hose to kool-aid, no harm done :) Dye, on the other hand, would be dangerous. But we are just talking harmless koolaid. Much like dying your own hair with it. It washes out :)

Sounds like a fun summer camp prank... get some blue koolaid on a gray pony the night before the anual bareback race...

I would be absolutely livid if someone rode my horse without permission. Talk about how unfair that would be to the horse too, especially if they're getting worked often.

Saddlebag.. I have no idea what that person was thinking.. and kids too!? Jeez...

It happened to me, but I didn't have any neat pranks to play lol :) I had to move from up north and there was this lady on property who rode like she had a saw in her hands. And her morse reflected it. They hated the bit, freaked at any contact in their mouths and were so high strung. Annie has always had a nice soft mouth. I caught the lady grooming her to get ready to ride once and she said to me "I decided to groom your horse since you decided to go down south for the day and abandon her." With a full hay net, two acres of grass and a stream? I doubt annie felt abandoned. When we moved, it took a couple days to go back for annie. When I got on her the next time, she acted like the bit was on fire. I could collect her, couldn't stop without her popping. Took a couple weeks to get her back to normal, and the property manager up north confirmed that this lady had used her tack and gotten on my horse. I was livid. Some people have absolutely zero respect for other peoples animals.

I'd buy a little lock and lock my helmet bag.

Ugh that's awful. I have neighbour kids sneaking treats to my horses... aggravates the crap out of me, but other than talking to parents (who don't care, and think that my horses are a neighbourhood amusement not MY PROPERTY) there's not a whole lot I can do. If I ever catch one of those kids ON my horse I don't know what I'd do...
