Sorry...just had to add that I read the comments. The chick whose horse this is pretty much all but says Judge Judy ruled in favor of the trainer.

First of all, I fail to see how anyone could do that much damage with a lunge whip unless they held the horse's mouth open with a crank...and even then it's a stretch for a lunge whip to do that much damage unless the trainer had it tipped with razor wire.

Second, if you read the comments on the pic, the chick whose horse it is all but comes out and says that Judge Judy ruled in favor of the trainer who supposedly did this.

I still say there is a special place in the hereafter for people who abuse children, old folks, and animals. I bet this got her a front row seat!

Drafty, the way I understood it is that the "trainer" tied the horse's head down (which, to me, meant by the bit) then proceeded to throttle the horse with a whip, which likely caused it to fight the bit and lacerate the tongue.

I do feel sorry for the poor horse and a "trainer" that would do something like that pisses me off to no end (gives us all bad names).

BUT, the owner said she was standing there watching the entire thing . Why the flark did she not stop it long before it got to that point?? I wouldn't have allowed her to tie my horse's head down in the first place but I can see where a possibly novice person wouldn't know anything was wrong with that. HOWEVER, the first time she popped him with the whip while his head was tied down, I would have drug her out of the arena/pen by her hair and proceeded to throttle her.

So, in that respect, I don't feel much pity for the owner either...only the poor horse caught in the middle of all that stupidity.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Okay, that makes more sense. The way everything was worded, it made it seem like the WHIP did that damage.

Is that a tongue or what? I'm confused at what I'm looking at. Either way, it's so sad. That horse didn't deserve that..

AGREED, I was thinking the same thing!

Was the tongue cut by the bit? It must have been. I dont' know how else the horse would keep it's mouth open long enought for a lunge whip to do that kind of damage. Must have had a thin, sharp bit in, so while she was whipping it, it thrashed around, thus cutting its' tongue.

I do wonder why the owner did not step in. There's two sides to every story, so it will be intersting to hear them.
