Rider tells of her 'ordeal' at hands of Trump team
DONALD Trump's security team have been accused of intimidation after a horserider was subjected to a "terrifying ordeal" on the tycoon's Aberdeenshire estate.
A complaint has now been lodged with Grampian Police from a woman who claims she was "detained against her will" by six of Mr Trump's security guards while riding on the dunes.
The 28-year-old, who does not wish to be named, claims to have ridden through the dunes and was heading back to her stables when a jeep came speeding along the beach behind her and forced her to stop.
She said: "A jeep with two security guys came on to the beach and came up after me at high speed with lights flashing.
"They spooked my horse quite badly and I nearly came off.
The woman says she was then held for 45 minutes while security waited for police to arrive.
"I was expecting a police car and then these two Range Rovers pulled up.
"Out stepped about four American security guards and a woman dressed in a suit.
"I was interrogated by the woman and two of the men. They were quite aggressive and accused me of vandalism that took place two weeks ago.
It was a terrifying ordeal."
Raymond Davidson, 65, who runs the stables with partner Shelley Johnstone, said: "I have filed a serious complaint with Grampian Police about the unacceptable behaviour of these Trump employees and trust that action will be taken."
