I have asked for advice multiple times, gotten good, sound advice, and then not used it. We aren't here to discipline horse owners - we are here to give advice and be content with that.
Otherwise, no comment.
Tying a horses leg onto it's body and forcing it to run around IS CRUEL. No if, ands, or buts..
