    Yikes ... I'm sure this wouldn't make NY Post status if the Bloombergs weren't involved, but maybe it'll make other adults think twice before becoming involved with students who are minors.

    I wonder if the Bloombergs will come out in support of Doyle or divorce themselves from the situation?

    And where is this "riding academy" George rides at?

    Who is helping Cody Baird in the jumpers these days? I know it's not Scott Stewart and I don't think it's Jimmy.

    Joe Fargis was helping her in Palm Beach. I don't know if he still is or not.

    From the article:

    "At 16, Georgina was cited as a top junior hunter...".

    That is an amazing honor considering...that she is not a HORSE!! Sorry, just found that to be funny.

    ahhh for the days when hunters *were* hunters and hunter riders were (fox)hunters, too. Used to be the newspaper statement wouldn't have been funny, but factual. Now, you're right, it is funny.

    My guess is that about 70% of the straight trainers on the A circuit could just as easily have been the defendant in this suit....

    Wonder why Jimmy was singled out? Maybe he dumped her? Or, even worse -- Maybe he DIDN"T and Daddy doesn't want little Susie to one day marry a horse trainer (HORRORS!).

    "...North Castle Justice Court on a charge of endangering the welfare of a minor and two counts of sexual abuse.
    He pleaded not guilty to the charges, all misdemeanors..."

    How repulsive. Misdemeanors. Just what does an adult have to do to a child to get a serious penalty?

    He has been CHARGED, not convicted. There are any number of felony-type offenses re: sex abuse. I'm no expert but stuff like lewd comments, etc. might be misdemeanors. Not defending it, of course, but remember the "innocent 'til proven guilty" thing...

    Anyone else think the headline is SO stupid? "Kid-sex Charge for Horse Man"? Yuck.

    I noticed that too. I mean, come on, how hard would it be to get a better headline. "Horse Man"??!?!?!?

    What does Georgina's sister have to do with the story (other than family link)? I can understand the article explaining that Georgina formerly rode with JD, but does it matter that big sis works at city hall? It will be interesting to see, however, if the Bloombergs have anything to say.

    I know this is very off-topic but a friend asked this week in Culpeper, is Cody Baird still a junior?

    Georgina currently rides with Jimmy Doyle.

    Cody Baird is still a junior. She is 16 I believe.

    Blech. Coaches carrying on with underage students is such a major abuse of trust. The more the cops bust, the better.

    I just hope Mr.Doyle didn't do it and is cleared of these charges.

    I saw last night on Celebrity Justice (yes, insomnia is a terrible thing) that Mr. Doyle's 50k bond had "been paid by someone in the Bloonber family". interesting....
