The lengths some low lifes will go to mess with a horse and it’s rider…
If it’s not cutting a horse’s tendons, cutting their tail to sell the horse hair, or this it’s something. Some riders out there are just awful and care about nothing more than winning, and making sure they feel above everybody. It’s truly sad that our sport has come to this. It’s not about the ribbon, but the ride behind it..why can’t everyone understand this? - jumpersdoitbetter
I have decided to bring something out in the open that we here at Hyperion are seething mad about. This may happen more often than people may admit or talk about, but since it’s effected us, I feel compelled to make a big stink about it.
On Sunday night at the Kentucky Horse Park, after the Country Heir Show, one of our horses was maliciously attacked. Thankfully the horse was not physically injured but as the picture shows, his appearance has now been changed dramatically. WHY? We do not know and urge you all to keep your eyes and ears open for any information. Let it be known, that acts like this will not be tolerated. Sadly this sort of behavior is not uncommon, any offense against an animal is cowardly and unsportsmanlike. If you think this is worth sharing to you’re friends please do, so that we may bring the truth to light. - Hyperion Stud
