The incident reportedly occurred at about 8pm on Saturday (April 22).

It is believed the dog, thought to be off its lead, chased the pony before injuring it.

A Facebook post on the Sussex Horse Community page said the pony had to be put down as a result of its injuries.

The Herald has approached both Sussex Police and Adur and Worthing Council’s dog warden for comment.
