A good friend of mine sent her horse to a trainer well known for years around here for training Paints and there VERY slow WP gaits and head sets.
He almost cut her mares tongue in half by tying her head low and down and then lunging around the round pen.
Friend showed up, saw the tongue and took horse, was able to ride her after that but only with a snaffle or side pull.
People are still sending horses to him to train.... UGH

Saw the pics...not sure how one would do that much damage with a lunge whip to a horse's mouth unless you cranked it open and held it that way with one of those things they use to hold a horse's mouth open to do teeth floats (can't remember what the name of it is now).
The bit did the damage when the head was tied down and the horse reacted.

Karma, That's all I have to say. Can't wait to see what this "trainer" looks like. Probably some nasty, trashy, selfish, wannabe "horse trainer" that knows absolutely nothing about them. I just can't wait to see a picture what this lady looks like.

What a B.I.T.C.H!!!
No I think she has some world champions, maybe reining horses. I looked her up but can't remember. It will be interesting to hear her version.

I wondered about that from the trainers web site but didn't see anything indicating this. Where did you find this info?

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.
I got that the owner saw it also and not sure why she didn't intervene. If she was young that could explain it as I may not have known what to do years ago.

I will have to remember to DVR this now! I'm curious to see how it turns out.

I'm also curious as to why she is only pursuing small claims. If someone did this to my horse I would have criminal charges brought against them, or at least would have called the cops. Of course, we don't know the whole story yet!

Should be interesting to see how this progresses!

When riding my horse I no longer have my heart in my chest, but between my knees.

It may be as much a case of an ill-prepared horse as a case of abuse. I cut a horses tongue once when I dropped a rein while is was leading it and the horse stepped on the rein and jerked her head a little. I never thought anything of it until blood started coming out her mouth. Her tongue was only cut once but it was quite deep and wide. I could see this happening if a horse had its head tied down and paniced. I certainly wouldn't tar and feather a trainer over this until I knew the whole story. Undoubtedly there was a mistake made but we have to remember that things happen when you go to training on a horse.

I still don't think I would go to Judge Judy.

I honestly don't have anything against her as a judge, I just feel like people that go on her show or any show for that matter are doing so just to get their 15 minutes, not really because they care about the outcome of their case. And one side always comes out looking like a complete moron.

Maybe she has a valid reason for going to a tv judge, I dunno, not my place to make that call, maybe she felt like she needed to make the public aware of animal cruelty.
