FEI appears to be endorsing abuse

Well seems FEI is not going to enforce its own policies

Let me take a moment and pretend to be shocked...

... Yeah, no. Not surprosed at all that nothing has changed. Really wish something would happen though.

Ick. I was really hoping I would scroll through the pictures and that would have been the only cringe-worthy one.
Silly me.

Theres a very small chance he could jsut be overflexing. My horse touches his nose to his chest sometimes without me being the one to force him too.

Whew...those are some heavy handed riders! What in the world are those people trying to do when they are leaning over their horse touching their face?

Beau baby-not likely there is way to much tension on those reins for him to just be doing that himself you can see her pulling the rein back that far

I just looked at the one picture. After looking at them all I noticed it is pretty heavy handed riding.

My understanding of the rule was that it wasn't to happen in competition, but as part of warm up for a short time it was allowed? Is that correct, or way off?

There were new "rules" set in place by the FEI a short while ago regulating a horse's frame in warmup. There is a reason why it's correct for a horse to be on the vertical, and severely incorrect for them to be behind the vertical. I'm not shocked that it didn't come to fruition.

That's what I thought too - that they could ride like that for very short amounts of time only. I do believe that it was a total of 10min max throughout the whole warm up. Ehh, I'm going to go find the rule books and the emails I've gotten from the EA.

These are pictures. You don't know for how long the horse's heads are being held in that position. They could well be asking the horse to hold their head in that position and then immediately releasing.
