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.
