^ Perhaps. But many people think it is.

That's where it came from. Other people. And not only on this forum.

NEVER said soring was right ;)

Let's drop the subject, shall we? Ain't gettin' nowhere.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

This thread is FOR the talk of soring. So... maybe you should go find a racing forum or a QH forum?

I have no idea what's going on.

Sunny06: Most people are aware that there are many other forms of abuse other than soring. However, the more abuse that can be eliminated the better. Casting a blind eye to soring because there are other forms of abuse would be irresponsible. There is no point in mentioning other forms of abuse on a soring thread, the point of this thread is to help people stop soring.

I never said I wasn't against soring.

And I understand.

Can't explain.. Just nevermind, please :)

Thing is, soring IS illegal.. the system is VERY flawed. These horses are trained (beaten; called "stewarding") to stand still when the judges test for pain reaction. Some judges will notice a pain reaction, and tell the owners to go steward it more then bring it back.
There is SO much wrong with the industry at the moment it almost needs a complete overhaul.

Where did you read that?

I've been to shows, mind you, and NEVER, repeat, NEVER seen/heard that.

Call me crazy.

If someone is passing off a sored horse to a judge, and they're doing something illegal they won't be wearing t-shirts and passing out pamphlets telling the world about it.

Of course you haven't SEEN it. That's why it's gone on for so long. There are enough documentaries. Websites. Videos, interviews, sound clips and news articles on the internet if you really want to read up about it. It's very easy to come into this kind of information. It's the things people are trying to stop. The persons doing these crimes are not going to seek you out and shake your hand and let you in on their secrets.

I haven't SEEN my new horse Eric beaten in the face for cribbing, but it's happened. They're not going to do things in a way that are going to be just seen and noticed and heard about.

I might have misunderstood something.

Judges notice something. They ask rider to make another round around ring to see if it's soring or not?

That wouldn't make sense. It's pretty obvious when your horse is sored.

But alas, it's pretty awful the whole thing.
