A Seymour trainer has been found guilty of punching a horse numerous times to the head on the side of the Western Ring Road late last year.

Trainer Michael Quadara was found guilty of misconduct for striking a horse in his care numerous times whilst pulled over the the side of the road on 1st September, 2017.

Eye witnesses reported that they had seen Mr Quadara strike his horse Manhattan Sparkle multiple times whilst parked with other motorists also yelling at the trainer for doing so whilst driving by.

Have Your Say 🗣: What punishment should Mr Quadara receive? – Comment below

The RAD Board’s announcement read ;

“We have no hesitation in accepting the evidence of Mr McLean and Ms Schoo [the passersby]. It was clear and convincing, in stark contrast to that of Mr Quadara,” the RAD Board decision statement read.

“We accept that there were other drivers tooting their horns and calling out words to the effect of ‘Don’t hit that horse’. We also accept that the blows were punches.

“Of course, the particulars of the charge are that Mr Quadara used his right hand to strike the horse. We are comfortably satisfied that Manhattan Sparkle was struck and that the blows were punches to the vicinity of the head. We accept that there were approximately six such punches.”

the RAD Board will take more submissions before deciding on a penalty.
