    He had a bad day and then was back to winning way’s yesterday. Possibly he is not quite as brilliant as he was but he is still one of the best

    Name Suggestions for Filly

    Zenzero is Italian for ginger and is unusual (although it might suit a gelding more than a mare)

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    I’m sure the intent is to ensure just that but the wording is such that you should be in control of your dog at all times which is not practicable, and therefore not a particularly well written law. I’m in bed at the moment the dogs are all sleeping downstairs and I have absolutely no control...

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    Or his owner seeing that they had started to canter and knowing that a 14yr old Westie had about as much chance of catching them as flying to the moon didn’t immediately recall him. It might not have occurred to him that one would stop, he may have recalled it as soon as he did. Obviously the...

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    That could be taken as the others cantered on and stopped WHEN the claimant lost control, ie they only stopped when they realised there was a problem. There is no jury so this will be down to how the judge assesses the evidence and apportions responsibility. Not hearing all the evidence we don’t...

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    It actually says that the horses had moved off to start their second canter but that his horse was stationery. The dog started to run towards them it doesn’t say from how far away and there is differing views on whether it barked. I am not advocating for a dangerous dog just pointing out that...

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    There is no money that compensate for the emotional aspect, but for the additional costs incurred regarding alterations to your home, care staff, physio, loss of earnings etc then a value for this can be determined, presumably why he is suing for money.

    Dog owner being sued for £5m after rider was thrown from horse

    This article appears to give a more holistic view of the incident and is why the case may not be clear cut. https://www.westerntelegraph.co.uk/news/20150969.horse-rider-injured-druidston-beach-sues-5-million/ Whilst the dog owner might be held liable (either wholly or partially) it throws some...

    Nice to see more professionals taking a stand..

    Maybe it needs an RSPCA inspector to walk into the ring and pull them up on animal welfare grounds !

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    It was only if you had I would have admired the action as the vitriol and language used was unpleasant and it would be admirable for someone who it was not directed at to have reported it.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    Personally I find that the people I associate with out hunting have high morals and personal integrity, so it’s nice to see that others do too . Was it you that reported Sossigpoker as that’s one of the quickest post removals and banning’s I’ve seen.

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    Those on here supporting trail hunts have made it clear that we are supporting trail hunting within the law. The fact that an animals right organisation has been found to be supporting an outfit that was actually perpetrating animal cruelty is news. Whataboutery doesn’t change this

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    Even if that was what the hunts were doing then actually it’s not. Deliberate cruelty is never right, however well meaning

    Livery yard issues am just been grumpy or should I say something to the YO

    Not true. In the long term if you have a bad livery then they cost you money and you can end up with them having the YO over a barrel as they can trash your yards reputation
