Re: DOGS (I'VE BEEN BIT)
As long as they don't bite.....
As long as people keep them on leash.....
As long as they don't bark all night......
As long as they don't pee on someone's saddle left on the ground.....
As long as they don't raid someone's food supply.......
As long as they don't chase or harass horses.....
And a few more "as long as".....
Now does anyone wonder why ride managers are so irritated about dogs coming

was bound to spark a lot of controversy, so I hope you are completely
satisfied. It seems to be what you do best.
