I've noticed it seems to be men involved in this ghastly business??! I've never come across this cruelty before and it is quite upsetting! It seems to me that there is not a strong enough response from the shows that feature this breed. A ban for life would quickly change this behavior! Hit em where it hurts, in there wallet!

You can't stop this by going after the individuals. That is like stopping a swarm of bees one bee at a time. The root problem remains - to win, you need to make a horse move in a completely false manner. It seems to me you have to ban the use of the equipment used, and require 100% vet checks of EVERY horse, EVERY show. It might require a legal ban on 'big lick', just like we ban cock fights.

The video below was made by a supporter of this form of competition. It turns my stomach to see horses used this way. Beetle-like humans, hunched on the horse while the horse does something freakishly says something very repulsive about human beings.

Beetle like humans... Yes its pretty revolting to watch, if you're a normal, sane person... To me it always looks like vultures sitting on their terrified prey...

"...vultures sitting on their terrified prey..."

That is a better description! Gargoyles, not humans.
