That's so scary. Hopefully the pony will be able to get over the trauma quickly. Thats despicable.

What a disgusting display of poor sportsmanship, coming into summer as well just when horses really need their forelocks and tails.

Poor horse, get some MTG onto him, that seems to help stimulate hair growth.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

God, that would suck. Can you get extensions for the mane and clip them in for shows until it grows back?

My thoughts exactly. Poor babies

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

That is really NOT the point, yes it could have been worse, but are they going to be able to get that mane how they like it at all this show season??

It is an assault, pure and simple, if you woke up in the morning and found someone had chopped at your hair with scissors, I bet you wouldn't be saying it is only hair.

actually I'd LOVE it if someone took scissors to my hair right now.


That is terrible sportsmanship. I'd be flipping mad if someone intentionally vandalized my horse like that. A couple years ago the baby horse stalled next to my mare ate her tail off and it took 2 full years to grow back.
That was mostly my horse's fault for standing there and letting him chew on it, but to have someone come in and cut like that.... oooh I'd be mad!

That is absolutely despicable! What poor sportsmanship. I hope the pony and your student are as okay as they can be after what happened.

I've had something similar to this happen to me once. My horse really doesn't like whips or crops thanks to an abusive trainer. At one show I was at, a girl hit Dallas in the face with her crop as she passed. It was obvious she was aiming for him, and it was no accident. Some people have some serious growing up to do.
