Would you tell on someone who may be cheating?

At our last horse show I seen a young girl stick a syringe in her horses mouth. I got a look at the bottle and it appears to be a calming agent. I don't think calming agents are legal to use in the show ring. I could be wrong.

Cinny the horse was on Smartcalm but 3 months before showtime we stopped giving it to him.

Would you tell on someone that you seen cheating?

If they did testing through random urine collection, yes. If it's a smaller show, no as it's your word against theirs. Just creates drama.

Go ask whoever is in the show office. I know buting for our area is not legal unless you actally go ahead of time and TELL them you are buting and WHY you are doing it. They will then decide if it is legal. I do not believe calming agent is illegal but I could be wrong.

You can't report someone for something you believe, or think , or coulda , maybe mighta been, but yes if You KNOW it is against the rules, an you KNOW you saw it, and YOU know 100 percent without a doubt what happened and know the applicable rules you should report it. Hover that doesnt seem to be the case here.

Agree with Joe4d. You don't want to be making accusations without solid proof it was really happening.

Also, if this was a schooling show it might not even be worth the hassle of reporting it (especially since the show is over).

Was it a recognized show or schooling? I wouldn't be the whistle blower, unless I knew for certain what was going on and it was causing a huge difference in the placings.

It wouldnt matter to me if it was a local show or the Olympics. The published rules are the published rules. But you need to know what those rules are, and know 100 percent that the rule was broken. Remember, all that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

The rules are often different for schooling vs recognized is why I asked.

Yes, the rules are the rules. However, if its 5 days after the fact its probably too late to do anything at this point (unless it was the Olympics.. and there the horses are tested anyways).

I'd rather be known as the b*tch that tattled on someone doing something against the rules, than as the pushover who'll just look the other way.....
