Stephen, first of all, your safety, your horse's safety, and that of innocent bystanders comes above all.

Secondly, in just about every state there are laws justifying the killing of aggressive dogs when they are threatening, attacking, or harassing people or livestock. I know my state's law on that chapter and verse and I will pull the trigger on an aggressive dog no questions asked.

Let the cops come. Who cares?

If my horse broke loose because of an aggressive dog I'd be beyond furious, and would be apt to shoot the dog right in front of his owner. Plus I have more ammo in case the owner gets uppity enough.

I disagree and my state's law is on my side.

That is like.. the best line ever.. haha. Wouldn't need it for the dogs, if the owners would be responsible.

There's a good reason why my pistol of choice is a Glock 17.

Are you being sarcastic?
No I don't think so, because if it were my dog, I wouldnt want some trigger happy horse rider shooting the crap out of her..
But it depends on how aggressive. If the dog is actually biting the horse, then yes. Heck, throw a bomb at it if you want. The stupid irresponsible owners would totally deserve it. Save a bomb for them, too!
Where I live people don't ride horses on beaches. Let alone beaches full of unleashed and crazy dogs.
@ the OP: I would stay away from that beach from now on, no need to get yourself or your horse hurt because of all the idiot dog owners in the world.

No. I'm not being sarcastic.

It doesn't matter what you want or don't want, at least in my state. If your dog is harassing livestock (which horses are), they are fair game to be killed. And the only opinion that matters regarding what is harassment or not is that of the livestock's owner.

Finally, no, if I were the OP I would not stay away from a perfectly good place to ride just because some idiot decides to let his dogs run lose. I'd take care of the problem dog permanently if it came for me or my horse.

No need to be so rude to me...
I just don't see why a dog should have to die because someone couldnt keep it on a **** leash.

Any force necessary. I have kicked a few dogs coming after my horse, a pointed boot to the ribs works pretty good...riding crops work well too.

I typically will charge any dog that is coming at me while I'm riding. Jake doesn't spook away and will run over any dog that gets in his way. I was once riding with a friend and we were charged by 3 dogs that came out of a garage. I turned Jake towards them and set him off at a trot towards them, they backed off and went for my friends horse, who sadly dumped the her and took off down the road. Luckily I managed to block the dogs and chase them back and the mare came right back to her owner who had pretty bad road rash.

The owners ended up supplying first aid, and helped drive me back and forth so I could take both horses back to the stables and took my friend home while they promised to never let the dogs off leash again. So I never got mad about it, they learned their lesson.

I have dogs that I take on trail myself. They never bark, chase or even go near any other horse than my own. If I see other people with horses I go off the trail, let them know I have dogs with me (so if their horses are spooky), both dogs sit next to me and I let the other people pass. So I don't mind well trained dogs around horses in the least.

You missed the point. The dog is not to be killed because he's off a leash. It is to be killed for what it does when it is off the leash.

This is such an important concept in law that is has been codified in most states

Lawriter - ORC - 955.28 Dog may be killed for certain acts - owner liable for damages.

Hey, since the law is on your side, feel free to kill as many dogs as you want. And when they make a new law that its okay to steal, Ill be sure to do that too. Because even though its wrong, I wont get in trouble for it, so its all good.
Stop talking down to me because you think Im younger than you.
