I could see being upset if she were all bloody and scraped, but in the pictures she isn't. It says nothing about him heartlessly dragging her for 50 ft or anything. The picture they show IS the side she fell on, I don't see any indications of trauma. But then again I wasn't there.
Who knows if the man even heard the woman screaming? Who is to say he didn't SEE her fall and stop? There are 2 sides to everything, well 3 if you count them as his, hers, and what really happened.
Besides if horses were taken from everyone who didn't KNOW how to care for them, then there'd be a hell of a lot less horse owners. Who decides what is adequate care/knowledge. Just because it isn't something you would do makes it wrong? The horse looks damn healthy to me. But then again, I am not there in the barn or where she escaped to see what happened. Some hysterical neighbor freaks, takes a few pictures and the world condemns the man for cruelty. Sorry to me that is a crock. We have a recent post about a video something like this of a reiner. Gotta love the horse world.
