This is why I would never EVER send a horse of mine out for training without A) PERSONALLY seeing the trainer, the facilities, and other horses in training. and B) poping in unexpectically to check on my animal. When I sent my stallion out for barrel training, this is what I did.

That being said, I would be the one going to jail after I got through with that so called "trainer". He would WISH he could be humanely euthanized.

^Well said!

I can't believe people would do that. I hope they sued them.

Some people make me sick,i cant describe the anger i feel.
Someone should put that horrible person in the animals situation and let them feel the pain the fear that they felt.
If you can do that to an animal who cannot defend itself what else is this person capable of.
Too much of this happens and the penalties arent harsh enough so it keeps happening!

I have actually seen this kinda thing with my OWN eyes. THIS is why when a thread was up about beginners training thier own horses, and how a pro is the way to go, I HAD to put up a warning. I know LOTS of so-called professional trainers, and if you saw how they worked you would NEVER leave your horses with these people! I would WAYYY rather have a beginner spoil a horse than to see THAT.

Problem is, we finally get laws passed to protect animals, and people do this stuff get a slap on the wrist, a fine. Even when a law gets passed, it isn't taken seriously. I mean, look at Michael Vick...... So this will prolly not get much either. Worse part is, even IF you incarcerate them, they will STILL have it so much better than what they put that animal thru....

Smrobs- while there are those out that would say even riding our horses abuses them, I ain't in that crowd. And I only use direct pain (I use a rope, but I can slap that puppy pretty hard if I want) for biting, rearing, striking out (like stallions do with the forelegs) and kicking. Everything else the most I do is a tap, and that is only to get motion at first.

Know thyself, know thy horse.

What people will do to animals...the owner put so much time, energy and thought into the breeding of this animal and look what happened. Just shows that it could happen to anyone's horse. Be careful who you send your animals to for training....soo sad. I read this story on HGS, so sad, and angering....:twiste d:

Thia is so sad. I can't begin to imagine what was going through Tess'a mind when all this happened to her. It's unfortunate that the owner didn't go by and see Tessa at least once a week----but I realize they trusted the trainer and everything others had said about him.

Everything can be achieved through patience!

I'd rather have a problem horse than a problem man. The horse I can work with. The man---I cannot help!
