... and yet you rode her too?

A person willfully ignorant like that would not be my friend any longer. Can neither of you see that this horse is trying her heart out, but is struggling? She looks out in the SI as well. This horse needs to not be ridden until her weight is up. And even then, your friend may be too big for this mare's frame. And that saddle is awful on her, it's causing her pain.

You are encouraging her. You are riding the poor mare as well. You are not standing up for this poor animal's well-being. You are helping perpetuate this.
Please, give your head a shake.

I'm sorry, putting something like that up and trying to pass it off as just another lovely riding photo.. it just doesn't work. We care too much about the wellbeing of every horse out there.

I'm sad your friend lacks compassion for her new horse's wellbeing :(

I'm guessing they use a vet/farrier.. have them talk to them?

The negative comments are not just us being rude and insensitive. 100% of us are 110% concerned about the mares health.

If you know what your friend is doing in these pics is WRONG. And you know the mare is in NO shape to be ridden and needs serious medical help.....why would you pot the pics?
