Horse left dead on Irish country road** warning- graphic images!**

Very sad :(

Distressing moment travellers leave horse dead on the side of an Irish country road | Mail Online

I have many a time met sulky racers out on the road... in the last few months I met one several times on the way into work - on an incredibly busy main road, during what could be considered rush hour.

A few years ago I was in the car with my husband when we came across somebody who was whipping the heck out of the horse and yanking it's mouth off. The horse was very clearly young, and upset along a major road with all the traffic. My husband, being more familiar with the travelling community than myself put the foot down knowing how I would react and refused to stop.

Just warning others, don't click on the link if you cannot handle the image of a deceased and bloody horse.

As for more OT, it's sad to see what people consider a "sport."

That video is awful. I was tense the whole time just waiting for one to get hit. No way I would run my horse in traffic like that!

That's unreal to see the ignorance of people when it comes to the welfare of their horses, themselves and other people on the road. Sulky racing is one thing to do on a track. But out on the open road... All I can do is shake my head at those people.

Poor horses. Also, how can trotting so fast on pavement not ruin their legs??

I don't understand- is this legal on highways in Ireland? In the video it appears there is a police car escorting them.

To me it looked more like the policy car was trying to pull them over without hitting the horse, but I don't live there so I could be wrong.

I don't think it's an escort, it looks like the officer is trying to stay in front of them and slow them down. You can see them repeatedly trying to go around the officer, or he'll block one and the other bolts ahead, etc.

This is horrible.

I really hope it isn't legal.
