Those poor horses :(
Call everyone you can. Taking pictures & posting them on the Internet isn't helping. Call everyone ya know. Police, humane, horse rescues. Just don't count on others word that no one does anything. They coulda been counting on those words from someone else! Calling the papers & such is an excellent idea too!

The person is well known and notorious, in and out of the area.
As I said it taints this otherwise lovely area.

When we stopped some locals said the RSPCA had been contacted and at least two people had put in complaints.

The local police had been contacted as well.

The real problem is that the RSPCA will not take legal action unless they are sure they will win.
The person concerned is a vexatious litigant .

Countless people have made complaints over the years and it raises the question of why nothing happens and who is protecting this person from prosecution because this is what it looks like?

At this point in my life in my seventies I really wonder why some young person does not do something?
In a village with many young people might there be some kid who has enough interest?

Probably not .

It's either Canada or the UK, Joe. The RSPCA is the Canadian/UK version of the US ASPCA.

Hmmmm I was going to see what I could do but have no contacts in Australia. Not sure what other members who aren't in Australia could do either.... Good luck though.

So y'all have the RSPCA, too? Interesting. It would have been nice had the OP mentioned he/she was in Oz.

Yep, have the RSPCA. Unfortunately the laws in Australia particularly relating to stock are pretty crap in respect to being able to remove animals and prosecute offenders. Have seen similar cases here in Western Aus where the RSPCA is so tied up in red tape they can't help the animals.
