JUSTICE FOR GINA! Expel Giovanni Oberti from International Competition

 I want everybody to know that during the past weekend in Cattolica, Rimini, Italy during the CSI 3* a horrible thing occurred. Giovanni Oberti, a famous Italian jumping rider, is the prime suspect for torturing his ex-girlfriend's dog by closing it in a plastic bag and burning it. He was likely under the influence of drugs. The dog was found alive, badly injured with burns all over its body, and sadly died after a long and agonizing night in the hospital. There were several witnesses, so both the Italian and International Federation are currently suspending his riding license, but this is not sufficient. Such a cruel person must be expelled from international competition as he is dangerous for animals and a poor ambassador of our sport. Please look and sign in the following group if you would like to help!

Below are a few words from an interview with Gina’s owner:

Aug 12, 2014 - "I'm not interested in revenge, I'm just looking for justice".

Claudia Morandi, Giovanni Oberti's ex-girlfriend tells us the story of Gina, her little Jack Russell that was tortured last weekend during the CSI 3* in San Giovanni Marignano (ITALY).

"I felt guilty from the first moment they told me Gina couldn't survive. I felt responsible because I was the girlfriend of her killer and I brought her to the horse show where she was killed. I cannot stop thinking about Gina's last 48 hours of agony where she was fighting for her life and my voice was her only comfort from the extreme pain. Gina was my great companion in the last 10 years, my shadow and my precious true friend. She used to follow me everywhere and she didn't deserve such a tragic death."
