    That is beyond horrible.

    I wonder if she could utilize surveillance cameras next time. Beyond awful that one would need to do that.

    Whilst it is true that it could have been worse, I think the point is Maggi that none of it is necessary at all. What is the world coming to? What is the price of winning? You and/or your horse being violated? What a sad comment on society that just because you were the best on day that others feel within their rights to seek revenge for your hard work and training.

    Showmanship *should* be about the best person winning, and if you aren't that person, well then, you congratulate your peers, go home, work hard and come back and whoop their butts the next time. THAT is how you go about seeking revenge for losing.

    ETA: I am sorry that it happened to your horse as well Maggi, just horrible (even if you don't think so ha ha).

    Thankfully I've never run into any problems myself at shows, but I always worry about someone doing something like cutting manes and tails, or worse just to try and get ahead of the game. I agree that yes, at least it was just hair, but just the fact that someone decided to go into another horses stall with the intent of doing damage in any form, is scary. And obviously even though visibly it was just hair, the horse was unhappy about someone they didn't know going into their stall, and messing with them. I personally would be of a mind to bring a lock with me, and lock the gate to the stall shut when I am not there, and that way no one can go into my horses stall that I do not approve of. I just worry what the parents are teaching their kids that they would decide that its okay to get back at someone for whatever reason, by going in and messing with their horse. I hope that there was nothing worse done to the two ponies, and that they will finish out the rest of the show season without any other incidences.

    Someone cut all the tails off the RCMP horses that patrol Stanley Park in our downtown. I don't understand it.

    How disgusting!! People never stop amazing me with how ugly they can be just to win a stupid competition...granted competitions are big, and wonderful to win, but at the end of it all, is still just a competition and there can and will be others. What a jerk!

    What did the RCRA say when it was reported? It WAS reported right?

    I don't take part in shows, but I sometimes take my horse "along for the ride". It is for reasons such as this that my horse is never left unattended. We buddy up and take turns so someone is always monitoring the horses' well being and containment.

    I do understand the point being made of course. However whilst in the stable they could have done anything to the horse with the scissors I would be beyond releived that the damage was only cosmetic.
    A few years ago at a huge yearling sale here all the tails were hacked off with a chainsaw.
    The point im making is whilst in that stable the possibilites were endless of what they could do but they settled for something that was not harmful to the horse.

    It would be nice if show event organizers hired security for this reason. I remember when I was a kid one of our friends was at a show where a horse was killed. There sure are strange people in this world that are so full of anger.
