SICKO: Horse shag­ger Ju­lian Ridge­way A SICK sex mon­ster who shagged a horse in a sta­ble near his home has been caged.

Ju­lian Mark Ridge­way, 54, got four years in prison with a fur­ther six years on li­cence as the judge told him it was clear he was not pre­pared to con­front his “de­viant sex­ual his­tory.”

Ridge­way was con­victed by of tres­pass­ing at an out­build­ing in Nether­ton, Wake­field, with in­tent to com­mit a sex­ual of­fence on May 10, last year and of in­ter­course with an an­i­mal be­tween April 18 to May 10.

The court heard he was seen lead­ing the mare, Honey, from her sta­ble by her own­ers who were keep­ing watch as they were sus­pi­cious some­thing was go­ing on.

They chal­lenged Ridge­way who ran off but se­men was found match­ing his DNA, in­di­cat­ing sex on a pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sion.

At Leeds Crown Court Recorder Paul Gre­aney said that in 1990 Ridge­way was caught in a com­pro­mis­ing po­si­tion naked from the waist down wash­ing a pony’s bot­tom by her owner and had choked her “within an inch of her life” to si­lence her.

He was con­victed in 1991 of at­tempt­ing to mur­der her and jailed for eight years.

Mr Jus­tice Jowett said then: “You were about to be­have in a dis­gust­ing man­ner with the pony.”

In the re­cent trial Ridge­way said he had no sex­ual fas­ci­na­tion with horses and de­nied sex with Honey.

But Recorder Gre­aney said: “I am sat­is­fied that you have a deep seated sex­ual in­ter­est in horses. There is a very high risk you will seek to have sex with a horse or pony in the fu­ture.”
