What do you guys think of polo? I know that there is cruelty in almost all equine sports, but is there a lot in polo? Where are some places/websites to learn more about this sport?
My friend hates it because she once rescued a polo horse that was beaten since it was not fast enough, and was one time accidentally smashed in the face with the mallet. Is this common?
I live near UCONN, and all of the polo horses seem like healthy, happy horses. I've only seen one with a notable vice (Kicking the stall door).
I hope I'm not opening a pandora box by starting this thread.
