That blows my mind......If someone were to do that here in Quebec and the cops/SQ were called you can bet your butt that they would get a visit from them and maybe get familiar with thier handcuffs too....If it's not yours DON'T touchie!

Oh, that would be a bad day for whoever rode either of my horses without my permission. My sister, who rides just as well as I do and knows my horses, knows she is NOT to ride my horses without asking me or me physically being there. Nikki is a one person horse and she will not tolerate a heavy handed person. So, if they don't know what they were doing they would have been in the dirt...Also, if I had pictures of the people on my horses like you do and the police wouldn't do anything about it I would personally do something. It might bring trouble on myself but you seriously do NOT want to mess with my horses.

I am Sparkly Meanie Doodie Head and I approve this message!

Mickey, you just might be right about that!

curious about how these drunks rode the horses....bareback and bridleless? That sounds rather unlikely to me as I doubt anyone who was drunk would be able to manage that.....or for that matter, anyone who WASNT drunk. To do so would require amazing skill.

If they tacked the horses up first: how did they know where the tack was, and more importantly HOW to put it on? The first few times I picked up a bridle, It looked like a jigsaw puzzle to me. Not to mention saddle pads, girths and the saddle itself. sure they may know that the saddle goes on the horse's back, but how did they know which girth to use for each saddle or which saddle to use for each horse......

Either way, tacked up or bareback and bridleless .... neither scenario seems very likely.

And if ANYONE rode either of my horses without permission, I would be the one in handcuffs!!!!

I'm curious as to how you saw or knew where to look on Facebook? Are these folks FB friends of yours?

I called BS the first time I read this, but decided not to respond to give the OP a chance.

Yes, drunks riding bareback and bridleless. :roll:

I dont even like people I know touching my horses without me being there, let alone riding when intoxicated. I'd be moving my horses asap sadly as I would not allow that to happen again.

I don't think this is actually illegal since the horses were not actually stolen or injured. You could sue your neighbors for it but I don't think it qualifies as a crime.

Ummm.....the Easter Bunny isn't real.

And neither is this thread.

Great fiction, though. Better than those choose your own adventure books.

Not really commenting on the OP, but on a comment a few other posters said.
I know a few people who could hop on bareback and bridleless while drunk. Just because the OP said they were "riding" them, doesn't mean try weren't just actually sitting on them while they walked around snacking on hay or grass. :p
I know my best friend could hop on with nothing while he was drunk, and if I could actually get up there without help (bareback) and actually get drunk, I might be able to cling for awhile if they were just plodding around. :p
