WHY THE BUL­LY­ING?

Horse & Hound - - Letters -

Sir — I was in­ter­ested to read

Sara Crow­ley’s let­ter about racism in show­ing (14 Septem­ber) and learn of her plans on your web­site to launch a cam­paign about poor con­duct and bul­ly­ing in show­ing.

It’s sad to hear that this un­savoury be­hav­iour has such a dev­as­tat­ing ef­fect on some­one’s de­sire to en­joy their hobby — so much so that they give it up so they “can’t be vic­timised”.

It can be the same on some liv­ery yards with peo­ple telling you what to do and how to do things bet­ter. Do we re­ally need these added pres­sures when all we want to do is re­lax and spend time with our horses?

It’s time that the in­dus­try stood up and took re­spon­si­bil­ity in what­ever dis­ci­pline so that we can all en­joy our horses.
