& # 39; She was bleeding to death & # 39 ;: beach ride turns into a nightmare after the group of dogs attacks the man's horse and leaves the animal with horrific injuries
- A group of dogs attacked a rider and his horse on a beach near Sydney
- An unexpected pit bull led the attack and bit the horse's face and legs
- The dog also bit the horse owner when they tried to flee the area
A man has relived the horrible moment that a group of dogs had torn his horse off during a quiet beach ride south of Sydney.
Nathan Bourde rode Summer on a Wollongong beach on his horse when they were attacked.
The footage shows an unsurprised dog that Mr. Bourde believes is a pit bull, who barks and runs to the summer before attacking her.
Mr. Bourde tried to flee the area on his horse, but more dogs followed him.
Mr. Bourde (36) saw desperate attempts to save the horse and himself from cruel dogs.
The female owner of the pit bull heard his name calling but she was unable to control it.
& # 39; It clicked on her legs and bit her belly and chest. Then it bit my foot. It had no leash, it had not been muzzled, and the owner was not able to control her dog at all, & Mr. 39 said. Seven news.

Mr. Bourde said he was trying to kick the dog, who then attacked the horse in the face and bit a vein.
& # 39; It was like a tap, as the blood flowed from her face. She was bleeding to death … I ended it with a string, & he said.
Bourde somehow managed to control the attacking dog and brought his horse to a vet.
The summer received antibiotics and recovers, but Mr. Bourde said the dog was muzzled, this could all have been prevented.
The law required that the American Staffordshire Terriers and Bull Terriers can never be distracted from their leash, even in a designated off-leash park (stock image of a pit bull)
The NSW government had imposed increased fines for dog attacks from $ 550 to $ 1320 last year under the Companion Animals Act 1998 after more than 1,000 dog attacks were reported in the state.
American Staffordshire Terriers, Bull Terriers (Staffordshire), Australian Cattle Dog, German Shepherd and Rottweiler were responsible for most attack cases.
