Friends of mine went away last year to the Pony Club State Gymkhana Championships.
One of her daughters competed as a 10 year old and she got champion.
This year they went to States again, competing as an 11 year old, and someone she beat last year put a threat of harm against her pony on the first night, then on the second night they tried to let him out of the stable.
First off, it is sick that someone would try to do anything to a little kid's much loved pony.
Secondly, if they went to the cops and said this is what happened, would they be able to do anything about it?
Poor pony has a body guard constantly now.
