    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

    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

    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

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

    Talk to the yard owner and make it clear that you are not happy with how the arrival of the new livery has impacted on you. If possible canvas other liveries to see if they are impacted in the same way. Don’t compromise!! If she comes into the arena again when you are using it then say no and...

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

    Glad your incident didn’t result in a serious injury to you. Regarding the case in question then its a good job you aren’t on the jury as the case is ongoing and not all evidence has been heard so I prefer to not jump to a conclusion ahead of it.

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

    Hence why I put holiday makers and why I said dogs were only allowed on leads and sometimes not at all (ie banned). There is generally a “holiday” season and out of season more beaches are open to dogs and some allow them off the lead and some don’t. I wasn’t saying that dogs should go...

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

    My brothers dog is soft with people but doesn’t like other dogs invading her space, she avoids them. My brother regularly used to walk her off the lead as her recall was excellent and she never had any desire to go sniff another dog. It used to annoy him no end when other people’s off lead dogs...

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

    Most beaches used by holidaymakers don’t allow dogs off leads (if at all) . If I go on a beach or other public area where dogs off leads are expressly allowed then I am prepared for the fact that I might have random visits from other peoples dogs. Regarding this case then I am genuinely...

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

    Whilst this is obviously the starting point it is not the same at all, at some point the dog would have to be off its lead for you to know it will recall and even if it does no one can be 100% sure The general principle of control of animals in relation to how this impacts on third parties...

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

    We don’t know that is what happened. We are speculating based on what has been presented so far. The defence barrister said towards not underneath. People on here have said they only let their dogs off leads if they have 100% recall. No one can be 100% sure that they have 100% recall. How do...

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

    We don’t know the circumstances of this incident, the man has suffered a life changing event and presumably needs money to enable his life to be easier, his lawyer is obviously going to paint the picture of the dog being out of control and causing the incident. For all we know the Westie was on...

    Advice please

    That’s a defect at time of sale not a defect that occurred once it was in the buyers possession. The original vetting would indicate that the defect was not present at time of sale, hence why it is likely to come down to whether OP’s current vet is able to provide evidence that the defect was...

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

    But it would have to be what a reasonable person would feel threatened by. So an elderly terrier that is a bit yappy is unlikely to class as dangerously out of control unless it’s actions directly caused the incident. So the case will rest on the evidence relating to the dogs involvement as well...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    The limit for small claims is now £10k, rather than claiming full purchase price could you have claimed the loss in value ?

    Advice please

    Can I ask whether you bought from a dealer or whether it was from the original owner via a dealers yard ? This will impact any claim as the latter is effectively a private sale. Also even if the former it is likely to be sticky as the horse passed a vetting on the day and there is no problem...

    Livery Dilemma,Bob has been kicked.

    I think your attitude regarding teaching manners is commendable but it shouldn’t be up to other liveries to do the teaching. This is both for theirs and the horses safety. Whilst some might be comfortable chasing back with head collar and lead rope others might not, you could end up with them...
