THE owner of the dog which attacked two ponies and a young rider is being sought by police.

"However, we have now received further information regarding the circumstances surrounding the incident."

Pc Sarah Gilbertson, who is investigating, said: "We are eager to trace the owner of the bull terrier, which we believe may have been injured by the ponies and possibly a car, which was in a nearby car park.
