    Is this true?

    Is it true that the Dressage horses had their tails broken so they can be set high and look classy? If you get what I mean. Im not an english rider. But I found this information out.

    No no no no. Who ever thought of that? That would be a horrible thing to do and i've never heard of any dressage horse having that done to them.

    Glad its not true but I guess its like people bobbing the tail or cropping the ears of a dog.

    Its a saddleseat practice; you'll usually see it on saddlebreds or twhs. Tail setting is done by either nicking the muscle under the tail or using a tail brace. The tail is not broken, but its still a pretty controversial thing.

    You have to feel sorry for the TWH. If its not soring its tail nicking, poor things. All so their human can win prizes

    *sigh* yeah...I'm not going to get started on that topic. The casual cruelty and ignorance just makes me blood boil sometimes.

    Oh ok. Well I don't want to start anything. I was just wondering. It was bothering me.
