Why do people shoot a perfectly good horse just because it broke its leg?! If we did that to all horses hardly any would be left

You can't just let her suffer. It wasn't fixable.. I am glad they did so. She was in pain for a long time//

Rehabilitate her and give her an even better life the. Just shooting her for almost no reason.

I'm not trying to start an arguement her but she was already old, she was in pain, she was lame, If you had a bunch of stuff wrong with you and didn't have that much time left anyhow, I just think I was COMPLETELY the right thing to do. Now, if she was a young horse, and it wasn't a bad break, yes I probably would try to fix her. but it wasn't. She completely like snapped it.. not fixable with a 1000 pound animal. Expesically, my boss has 112 other horses to care for. And not that much money to spend on horses that don't necessarily need it. JS

Hey awesome person!
I did HUS/ H/J for a few years, did dressage for a year, and now back to hunter jumper again. I also do speed events, western pleasure, and hopefully eventing in the near future!

There are gonna be so many people in your life that are gonna tell you you can't. What you gotta do is turn around, look them in the eyes and say "Watch me."
