Did that video say the abuser is on the ethics commitee with the TWHBEA? I would hate to see the ones that aren't on the ethics commitee.
TWH's must be the most patient and kindest of horses to put up with these terrible owners. I don't understand why more people can't love walking horses for what they are naturally. And why they don't breed for natural gaits rather than breed for a gait they have to alter for showing.
I have a Fox Trotter. She isn't perfect but I love her for what she is. I have fun with her and enjoy the different "gears" she kicks into when we ride. Why can't everyone just love their horses for what they are? I would love to have a Walker just for hitting the trails. Why do they have to make them into freaks and torture them?
If people don't love their horses, why even own them? They obviously don't care about them if they sore them.
