Ceasar Parra situation

I have been reading about the incident with Ceasar Parra and William the horse that was seriously injured under his "training." I have seen both sides of the argument, and I am a bit curious about what others think about the situation.

Ready? GO!

Really? I really want to know more about the situation and I was hoping that some members could shed some light on it for me. Everything I read says the same thing, so it's hard to gather a lot of facts.

You could also google it. there are several links that you can find.

There are pictures of the horse named William on the Passing Fancy Farm website.

I just don't know which side to believe, as they both have believable stories. However, they are drastically different.

I found a few articles and basically what I'm gathering is that the owner of William, brought her horse to be evaluated. Trainer lunged him and the horse spooked, freaked out, and flipped over hitting his head.

How many times has that happened before to horse owners? Owning a horse, especially expensive horses, involves risks...

Am I missing something else from this story though? Were their other instances with this particular trainer where he's been allegedly abusive towards his horses?

That's what I gathered as well, however, it seems that the horse was in leather side reins rather than elastic ones and they were so short that the only way to get them off was to remove the bridle and saddle at the same time. SO I guess what the owner's are saying is that the horse repeatedly hit his head during his struggle to get back to his feet. Which he couldn't do because his head was so overly restricted. He also spiked a major fever and supposedly Ceasar took the hose from the owner and instructed his employees to wash the blood from the wall instead of tending to the hurt horse. I believe that is what the story is from the owner anyway. What I don't understand is why it's taken almost 3 years for this to be reported. The incident happened in 2009.

Do you have a link to the defendant's story? That poor horse. I have yet to get any opinions, I wonder if it is a touchy subject? Are people hesitant because of the possible involvement of a HF member?
