Y'know, I have no love for Pat Pepperoni and his Bitter Half, think they're the biggest joke in the world when it comes to horse training, and wouldn't use their expensive, useless crap if it were given to me, but sign a petition? For what?
It's not illegal to fleece people out of their hard earned money if they want to be stupid prats and throw good money after bad advice.
I didn't see Pat actually abusing the horse, but it was extremely poor horsemanship and things got completely out of hand. The horse wasn't beaten to within an inch of his life, although I wasn't happy about the gum line and the rope on the leg.
I saw a horse who was confused and starting to get annoyed, and a frustrated asshat of a man who couldn't admit that he wasn't getting anywhere. That's bad judgment, but not necessarily abuse.
I think the Pepperonis give the NH world a bad name, but it's up to the public to quit buying into their smoke and mirrors sideshow, instead of thinking the sun rises and sets in their butts. What they do isn't illegal or necessarily abusive, but it is morally and ethically reprehensible. However, that in itself does not mean there needs to be an investigation.
