You know, honestly, I'd prefer this compared to some of the stuff I see from other lesser-developed countries. Obviously, I don't like it. I think it's bad training and poor horsemanship. But the horses all look like they are being fed and looked after which is something you don't see in a lot of horses in those parts.

The foals are just kind of insane though.

The horse I'm thinking of wasn't a Marwari... It was a big grey thing but I can't seem to find the video. :( ****.

Agree to that! I just can't believe that people still use barbaric methods to train animals, methods that primitive people used to use waaaay back then.

We are at 2010, and people still do this.

The "boots " On some of the horses legs are they decorative or torture ?
I wonder how many learner horses flip over whilst tied to those poles....
That foal was way too young poor baby :(

Sorry to double post ...

The movement those horses do reminds me of when a horse is cornered by the alpha horse and has a little panic attack trying to get away . For a few seconds they do a similar "dance" a panic dance.

That is such a good point! Thank you so much everybody for posting those...if awareness of this kind of torture can go out, this field will start to crash as the non-horsey people who are watching it go, "Wait, that ISN'T normal? But it's so pretty and their necks are so beautiful." If people are just told some simple things about natural horse behavior and proper training this kind of thing can pitfall so fast! These people are playing on the ignorance of non-horse people to make money. It makes me want to cry...the saddest part is that the horses haven't kicked all their handlers to death by now and actually tolerate this. They are very obvious about what they think of it, but they ACTUALLY TOLERATE IT! That's their most wonderful strength and their most deadly weakness, that they are so willing.

These horses are in third world countries. Sorry to the members that might be from or live in Mexico but that is for the most part a primitive third world country and nobody should argue that Pakistan is a third world country. People are treated no better in these countries than the animals are. They are primitive in thier outlook on life in general.
