At least its not as bad as bringing a horse into a nightclub then having the horse go ballistic injuring the athlete and the athlete getting arrested and thrown into jail. Imagine how bad that would look to a sport...oh...wait...

In the US that story would be reported as "Two guys got into a fist fight at a bar. As a coincidence they both ride horses and have the same name." (lol)

yes, that's what i have heard too. (2 against one, as well.) If it was homophobia, despicable beyond words.
