One question...How does a horse run and buck with one leg tied up? I mean, I imagine its possible but extremely difficult. I'm really starting to hope the OP is a troll. If not, I really hope they get a trainer.

If this is 'nasty' you'd better leave the internet before you find 'really' nasty. Being concerned for the safety of human and horse is NOT nasty.

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

Well, I'm just saying, if telling someone to their face they're cruel isn't "nasty" even if it's with the horse's best interest in mind, maybe we should back off. Some people (I'm not stereotyping the OP) are hard-headed and stubborn and will take something like that personally. Yes, he/she asked for help/advice, so we give it to him/her and leave it there - it's not your or my say if he/she actually uses it or not. 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..

Right it is absolutely cruel. And in that circumstance I am more concerned about the welfare of the horse, than hurting the abusers feelings.

So you would rather we (general we) leave a horse to be treated inappropriately than tell the owner that what they are doing is cruel? Because some how telling the human what they are doing is being cruel to the animal is worse than the human actually being cruel?

I'm sorry - I didn't mean to say that tying a horse's leg to it's barrel ISN'T cruel - it's old-fashioned, and old fashioned usually didn't have the horse's welfare in mind. Forgive me. But don't you think the OP has gotten the message already? 6 pages of DON'T TIE YOUR HORSE'S LEG TO IT'S BELLY isn't enough? We can tell her this till we're blue in the face, but the OP is the one who has to get out and do it...unless she gives us her physical address, lol XD

The vast majority of us would rather try to explain why something does not work than walk around with our fingers in our ears singing la la la can not hear you.

Yes, this thread is six pages long.

If you read back you will realize the OP was giving excuses and such until post #44, which is mid way through page 5.

That makes me think those first five pages were worth it.
