This Petition has been created to create and enforce a lifetime ban of membership from both AHA and USEF for one Gwenyth Davies.
On Oct 30th 2019 61 horses were removed from Gwenyth Davies property in Cresswell Oregon for severe neglect. The horses on her property were found to be in varying stages of starvation and neglect. Authorities made the decision that leaving the animals on the property would cause them more harm than removing them. According to the humane society not all of the horses involved in the rescue survived and some will have a lifetime of health problems and stunted growth.
Most of these horses are registered with the Arabian Horse Association. Gwenyth Davies has been showing and training Arabian horses for many years and has moved from town to town to avoid law enforcement and suspicious owners and animal lovers. In the mean time she continued to own and train Arabian horses and even show them all over the west coast. According to witnesses at the seizure Davies kept her show horses in "fair to ok" condition and everyone else was left to starve. Her presence at shows coupled with her compulsive lying allowed her to operate under the radar for years.
Her case was settled today and she accepted a plea deal. 11 count of neglect and she plead GUILTY to all of them. She has to pay restitution and is limited in her ownership of animals. This is basically a slap on the wrist and we as a community seek further punishment within our organizations. Please sign this petition and share it so we can take it to USEF and AHA to get a permanent lifetime ban enacted on ms. Davies.
