Ya know, growing up I had a best friend and neighbor whose family owned and showed the Big Licks. I went to a few shows with them and it was exciting (at the time) to see these horses show. I thought there wasn't anything wrong with it. I remember seeing the chains, big pads, and horses with saran wrap wrapped around their legs. I grew up, did some research, and heard horror stories of what they do to these poor horses. Watching that video of Honors made me sick to my stomach. It looks so unnatural and to think, I actually use to like watching a horse stepping high like that. Ugh. Thankfully, my old friend/neighbors stopped showing "because of the politics surrounding it" and now all they do is trail ride.
