I've seen her around on FB. She lives some-what in my area...I just can't wrap my head around people like that...AT ALL.
Yeah, she has several horse groups on FB, horses for sale at various prices. I dunno how much is true but after lurking in these groups awhile...let's just say I'd rather no do business with this person.
Where I live, the majority of the horses have horrible treatment. I'm sure a lot of you remember my old threads.
Horses have kids on their backs by nine months old, and are 'dead broke' by two years. Many of them always have their noses pasted to their chest in tack. When those 'training methods' don't work, they breed the horse, hoping the offspring will be better. Bacjyard breeders from hell.
Everyone down here thinks you can hop on a horse, and everything will be fine (They don't take the time to learn how to make the horse comfortable while riding).
Out of about fifty horses 45 of them get horrible treatment, no eggageration; I have contacted the humane society and gotten a lot of issues fixed, but you can't fix stupid. These people refuse to do things the right way. Honestly, I think there are maybe three owners who know what they are doing. Posted via Mobile Device
I sure am, tiffrmcoy. The one I go to every year (I usually ride IN it so I don't see most of the other animals) is the Katy rodeo parade. Its a sorry sight. I saw it for the first time all the way through last year, due to not being able to be IN the parade after a major surgery. There was a drill team on there and all of them were riding horses in Mech hacks, tie downs, or big twh type curbs, and the horses were very agitated. Two men in particular made me furious.
Note the bit in the paint's mouth, the 'nose band' and the animal's feet. It reared 3 times in the time I saw it, and I didn't blame it. The weight of the brown horse was terrible as well. Thankfully I actually did see the brown horse again this year and he was in MUCH better condition, but I can't say the same for that poor paint.
I'm having the same boarding situation. No place in my area except for the $700+ boarding/training facilities have even close to decent stalls, turns out, etc. I need a place that I can do self-care so that I can feed my own feeding regiment, but its impossible to find that within 30 minutes of me or so for a decent price, and I just can't afford to pay $300 for self care per month, and I surely want to see my horse more than once a week!
Wanna be weekend cowboys, there everywhere. Could he get the bit anymore tighter in the paints mouth. The poor paints face screams pain and the noseband, oh my goodness Most tolerant horses ever. Posted via Mobile Device
I'd just had gallbladder surgery five days before the parade, but I was about to march up to that man, demand that he get off his horse, and if nothing else take that wire noseband off of the poor animal's face. The bit appeared to be a thin piece of twisted wire as well....and a curb! :/
