But that is what I am saying. None of us are there. Ok he admits the mare is unruly. Can you think of 10 people who are actually outhorsed right now? I can. We are condemning people for learning through experience.
It's how I learned. My father taught me a lot. My old trainer taught me more. But the horses taught me everything. I have always ridden the rankest, meanest, most onery animals. It's what I did. It's who I was. If I couldl sit it, I'd ride it. Does this make me less of a horse owner, No. I learned through mistakes, trial and error. Did I mess up, YES.
But who in this world can honestly say they have never messed up with a horse? Their kids? Their dog? I can't say that.
As for dangerous, owning a horse is dangerous in itself. It becomes more so every day with people doing things like this. Those pictures were taken and that man condemned without anyone knowing for sure what happened. While I might not agree with the how of it, the mare appears to be no worse for the experience. The owner however will NEVER live this down. He'll be in court because public outcry will demand that the :bad, cruel man" be tried and hanged for it.
To me that is just sad.
