I don't particularly care about training practices, so long as it doesnt constitute cruelty, and said nothing at all about training anyway. But while some don't want to consider the evidence, NO horse is physically mature through its back and hocks before around 7yo and while YOU may know this but not think it important, the op may not know about equine development or that what they are intending could damage the horse. No jumping on or judging anyone - never assumed anything, let alone abuse, just said what I wouldnt consider doing and why. Anyone... except you for yourantagonistic assuming comments - just sharing info that some care to learn!<br />
