RE: [RC] [RC] SHAME ON AMY TRYON!!! - Juli Jakub

I have to agree here unfortunately. I was a high level eventer and I have had horses go lame under me during competition....not even that lame and I could always tell and I ALWAYS pulled up. I can tell when my horse just pulls a shoe never mind is head bobbing lame. It is shameful what happened. I cannot believe a rider at that level would not be able to tell and if she couldn't than in my opinion she should not be riding that level...the stakes are higher and it is all the more important to be aware of what is going on underneath you in the heat of the moment. That horse trusted her and he paid with his life for it. And it is shameful that she was given so light a punisment...she should have been banned alot longer than two months! It makes me glad that I no longer compete in eventing or at that level. That is just my opinion however. Cheers,

Subject: [RC]   SHAME ON AMY TRYON!!!

My daughter grew up riding at an event barn in Sebastopol, California. This horse "Sparky" came to the barn as a two year old. We watched him grow up. We watched this difficult, quirky horse turn into a champ. We watched with pride as Robin had so much success with him. We were bummed when she sold him to Amy. My daughter and I cried together when we heard what happened. Now that I just saw the video, I'm sick to my stomach. There is no way she couldn't feel how terribly lame he was. As a rider, you FEEL it when others can't even SEE it!! I'm sorry but Amy Tryon is the worst if you ask me. What a selfish, cruel thing to do. And she had to have known there was no reason to continue, he still had stadium jumping the next day. What a waste of a truly special horse. (Please tell me she didn't collect insurance money.) Rest in Peace Sparky. You were too good for her. Janet
