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 are a real loser in SO many ways!

Poor sportsmanship sucks.

Glad that is all they did.

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.

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?

Wow, seriously? What is wrong with people? That is completely unacceptable behaviour, I'm sorry that happened.

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.
