Just to throw this out there, please don't think all hispanics do the dancing horse thing like that. The "dancing horses" I grew up around were all Pasos, and their "dancing" was them gaiting across wooden boards (I think Paso shows do this as well but I've only seen them on YouTube so I can't say with any strong knowledge). They were prized and treated very well.

I think you're confused - I'm talking about the 'dancing' horses commonly found in Mexico and Spain. Basically the same thing every drafty said.

Please don't get me wrong, I don't think that they're all bad people or abusive to their animals - my Fiance is Puerto Rican and I got to go to PR to see and ride some Paso Finos. They're all magnificent, the particular trainer I met was a kind guy with well cared for horses - the retired ones got to 'live it out' on the mountain side and just be a horse. They had better lives than many horses I see here in the states.
I'm not referring to Pasos or horses trained in appropriate ways to move like they're dancing - I'm referring the the appalling spectacle of 'dancing horses'. If you read past my original post you'll see a video that (admittedly a bit on the extreme side) explains what I'm referring too and what was being referred to in the ad.

Some people don't, and like to incorporate "Beating" for things they do not understand at all, because they watched it once on tv.

Please read what Drafty wrote, we aren't referring to Paso's my Fiance's family has some in Puerto Rico - they're wonderful horses and they're not (generally) trained in any exceptionally awful way - the same as any other horse sport, good and bad people. We're referring particularly to 'Dancing Horses' - not naturally gaited horses or horses who perform in a way that looks like dancing (like dressage).

He is 98.9% homozygous and has a superb temperament which is passed on to his offspring.

Well at least they took the time to do some math.

No I'm not confused. I'm saying that the term is used to describe more than one type of activity. The Mexican dancing horses are not the same as the PR dancing horses. Our dancing horses are simply pasos gaiting across wooden boards - but they're still called dancing horses. I would hate to discuss my kind and have someone think I meant the other :)

I get where you guys are coming from, I just want to be sure not everyone is dumped in the same bucket!

Sadly, the fake piaffe dancing horse thing is not the worst of it.

DancingArabian, the reason PunksTank and I were so adamant is because your reply made it seem like we were confused and that the dancing horses we were talking about weren't "real" dancing horses.

Maybe they mean "healthy...except for the fact that she needs a few hundred pounds of weight." *facepalm*
