    I would like to point out that this all happens out of the eye of the public, usually just between the judge and the barn representing the horse. It is very private.


    I am trying to find the full length video

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

    But alas, it's pretty awful the whole thing.
    No, they poke and prod the horse's legs before it ever enters the ring. That is why you don't see it.

    No, but you seem to be defending the industry to the point of turning a blind eye.

    Blind eye, eh?

    Nope. Afraid you are mistaken.

    I don't like to admit it, I admit. But not ignoring it.

    It is not always obvious, which is explained at 4:50 and on in the first video I posted. The term "stewarding" is explained at 5:25

    But there is never a time when soring isn't thought of as abusive in my book.

    I don't know if I'd compare HYPP to soring beyond the fact that humans keep doing both. Breeding HYPP positive horses to make those gross halter horses or stuffed their TWH's legs full of embalming fluid so they burn and they move faster.

    Really why compare? It all kinda sucks don't it?
    It ALL does. No part in argueing about it I guess.

    By saying it doesn't happen, you are ignoring it :)

    I'm confused.

    What is soring? Is it a movement a horse makes? Or a chemical that they put in the horse to make it have 'flasher' strides?

    There are a ton of videos in this thread and information about what soring is right in the first post of this thread.
