I saw something today, and it really made me mad!

Well, I went to ride Cora today, but the arena was being used for roping, so I will have to wait until later on.

Anyways, I went inside to check it out and this is what I saw.

I man was walking up to his horse, and I saw an OBVIOUS look of fear on that horse, as the man neared. So, the horse tried to flee by moving over. Well, the man got an OBVIOUS look of pure anger on his face. He proceeded to untie his horse, which then realised this was not good! So, the horse tried to flee AGAIN, slipping on the cement and falling to the ground. This is when the man continued to kick and whip his horse while it struggled to get to his feet. When he got up, he was whipped some more. That stopped, and the man tried to lead the horse, who was slightly delayed in stepping forward (CAN YOU BLAME IT?!?!) Where it was then beat again. And again. And again.

Ugh I tried so hard SO ARD not to say anyting since it was not my horse, and none of my usiness but seriously WO BEATS A SCARED HORSE WHEN THE HORSE IS OBVIOUSLY SCARED OF YOU!?!?!?!?!

wow, that's pathetic! I would have said something even though it isn't my place.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

That is sick. No wonder the horse is so terrified of him...shame.

You must report that. It is very wrong, and hopefully he can be removed, or if the guy has a history with beating his horses, the horse can be taken away from him. That would be much better.

That is awfull, you really should tell on. That poor animal deserves a kind owner who hugs it and tells it sweet things, not whipped and kicked!

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

Exactly! But the problem is I don't know who that person was, and I don't think he boards there. I think he just uses the arena. If I see him again doing the same thing, I am going to tell the BO.

I personally am the type of snotty teenager that will walk right up to the man and give him a nice big hunk of my mind. I then explain to the person that if I see them continue their stupid acts that I will happily grab my whip and physically show them exactly what they doing to the animal, of course I must demonstrate it on the human just so they get the whole picture.

Not that I've actually done that last part, but I do march up to people and give them a darned good cussin' if they need it.

That would be a good idea. Take the whip and give the guy some of his own medicine.

You need to report what you saw to the BO now, not just if you see him again.
