If she takes photos to the humane assoc. She is not hurting anyone, but it would help to educate her if they decided that it was not abuse, and if they do decide it is benign then no action will be taken toward the horses owner and everything is right with the world. If they decide it is then she just helped the horses, no lose situation.

If everyone minded their own business how would anyone who is suffering be helped? It is you two who should be ashamed of yourselves by telling her to mind her own business, shame on you. She is not comfortable with what she sees, so she either needs to be educated about it or decide for herself that no one is being harmed.

When they are chained up, are they able to eat and drink?

Starline and Kevin, bear in mind that she keeps them chained up like that all day, every day. And these horses do not ever get turned out — I don't think she even turns them out in the indoor ring.

They do seem stiff and dull, and one in particular gets very frustrated. I will check the bedding tomorrow.

No. The chain is so short that they can't lower their heads.

Then I would contact the Police and the Human Society. Simple as that. If you don't, then you are just as bad as the person commiting the act.

She said herself that the horses are well cared for other than this possible abuse. If she takes photos to the humane society and some bleeding heart that doesn't know horse biscuits from shineola decides it's abuse she has brought all kinds of hassle down on someone that takes good care of the op's horse and is not abusing her own.

Are you at the barn all day or are you just assuming alot? If they are chained ALL day as in 12 hours or more then I think you may have a case there and you may want to move your horse and tell her why you are moving. If at any time the horses are allowed to get food and water and they are in decent condition the humane society will do nothing about it. Do you think they will confiscate her horses because they don't get enough exercise?

I'd do it anyways. If it goes against your concience, and if something in the back of your head says "This isn't right" then stand up for the horses - be their voice.

Can't hurt to report, if the authoraties deem the situation is perfectly acceptable - at least you know you did your best :)

She said they are well fed and their stalls are clean, in no way does than mean they are well cared for.

If the horses suffer physical pain and mental distress as a result of being tied all day and are not allowed food or water and cannot lower their heads then it is most likely abuse.

And Kevin, I'm sorry, not trying to attack you but just because you do not like the Humane association in your area and think they are not qualified does not mean you need to tell someone to mind her own business and not report what she sees, not everyone is a bleeding heart or horse ignorant, some people are actually horse wise and feel the need to report obvious abuse, there is a difference in being a empathetic or caring person and a bleeding heart: education.

Before you report it you better have a place to move your horse because if it was my barn and I got reported I would find out who it was (and there is no such thing as anonymous) and give them the boot and then put the word out to all other barns about what they did.

And I would let everyone know how one treats their horses and would inform them to not board at a facility such as that.
