Someone vandalized a students horse while at a show!!

A student, who I work with when I teach clinics in Canada, took her horses and students to a show at the Royal Canadian Riding Academy this last weekend. They won either champion or reserve champion in all of the divisions. When she went into one of her ponies stalls to braid, she found that someone had cut the pony's mane with scissors!! She found another of her students horse similarly vandalized





Whoever you are who did this....you are a real loser in SO many ways!

I saw you posted that on FB, and I get just as angry seeing it here, as I do when I see it there.

Absolutely unacceptable behaviour and I would of FLIPPED if that were Nelson. Absolutely disgusting, disrespectful, immature, hateful and inconceivable!

I'd of been on the war path until I found out who did it. I'm so sorry :( Your poor student, she must of been in tears! *HUGS*

Aw man that sucks. The good thing is that they just cut the manes it could of been much worse. The manes will grow back.

I am sorry though they shouldn't of done that.

Striving to always excel in everything I do. Whether I fail or not I always try to do better than last time.

She is not too sure that was all. She said the pony was so upset when she got there that he was rearing when they started handling him. Makes you wonder....

Man next time you guys are at a show I would bring someone just to stay with the ponies. I hope that all they did was cut the mane. How is the pony doing today have you heard?

The other horse had its forelock cut off and the tail cut off at the hock level.

That's absolutely horrendous, agreed, I'd be on the warpath if someone did that to Lottie or Tazz.
Hope your student and her horse are ok.

Mount up and leave your troubles behind on the ground.
