I have never seen a horse so happy to run through a gate.
again, I said wild. I watched a documentary on the behavior of stallions and they do not act out that violently.

Are you serious?
WILD HORSES FIGHTING
Oh SOMEONE must have trained them to be aggressive.

CHICKENS FIGHTING
This is ALL natural behavior. And don't even try to tell me that those roosters are trained to fight. In cockfighting the roosters comb is dubbed (cut off) so the other competitor can't rip it off.

I Do NOT condone these acts when the animals are provoked like dog fights, horse fights,cock fights etc... Just proving that this IS natural behavior.

Would you care to explain how? Except that it was not a situation contrived by people it is exactly the same. The horses fight untill dominance is established and one horse leaves the area.

in the wild they do not try to tear each other apart like they do in that video that the OP posted. They are not meaning to kill in the wild. They are meaning to show the other males dominance.

I think you mean that humans are exploiting the natural aggression in the horse, which would be a statement I would agree with. People do the same thing with cock fighting, dog fighting, whatever other kind of fighting there is.

But if it makes you feel better, humans fight each other too for the amusement of others, sometimes resulting in death. So it's not animal exclusive!

Wild stallions will KILL other stallions and YES, they will tear each other apart to obtain breeding rights to the mare. They are not just showing dominance to another stallion. The only reason you don't see them killed very often is because one stallion will give up and run far away. In killing another stallion that is one less competition for his mare band or a mare he's trying to get. They're not worried about showing dominance. If they both are equal in stamina and are willing to fight for the mare(s) til the end, one will end up killing the other. The horses in the video are doing the same thing...fighting til one gives up.

I think that video is very saddening to see, but like others have said there isn't much anyone can do to stop it. But I agree with Kevin, it doesn't look as bad as most are wanting it to seem, especially a group like PETA. When one horse gives up, the competition is over and that would make sense because they seem to get a high watching the horses fight not watching the horses chase each other around.

Trust me, they tear each other apart in the wild too. And in captivity, even when not "trained" to fight. It's the same on all fronts. Two stallions see mare, two stallions fight over mare. They do this so only the strongest gets to breed, not because humans trained them to. That's just how horses act.

Exactly "until one horse leaves the area"
If it is confined to a pen it can't leave and give up as in the wild it has to stay and take the beating in the confines of the pen.

I hope eventually the WHOLE world will realize what an absolutely sad world this is turning out to be.
All I can do is give my Khamie a big hug and be glad she is spared from this.
