    I have seen some things, and heard others.. but never have I seen something that sickening done for the sake of 'training'

    Poor creatures, hope that they're helped and manage to leave that in their past.

    Their goal was to get a good bend in the neck for dressage that looked natural. "According to the trainer/groom, the horses stand like this for 2 hours, then a break, then 2 hours…… "
    They were trying to make it so that it was the natural way the horse would hold their heal. Honestly I hope these people die and go to hell for what they did!

    I'm not in tears.

    What I am is angry beyond reason with a burning desire to beat whoever did that to within an inch of his miserable life.

    I'm also very ashamed of south africa right now. I hope this stud gets named. I would like to do some serious hate mailing, what do you think?
    ...Or even hate visiting...

    Very sad! :(

    I remember coming across the website listing animal offenders in my state (with the description of what they did and how they were punished). I was able to go may be through just 1 page (if at all). It was absolutely sick. Some people just don't deserved to be called people.

    I think that's a waste of time. I think it would be much more useful to send your opinion to whatever prosecutor has jurisdiction over the location where that farm/stable/stud is.

    I have no clue what the animal abuse laws are in your part of SA, but there surely must be some under which these animals can be prosecuted, tried, and hopefully convicted and imprisoned.

    I am sure they can, and will, prosecute...

    I'm struggling to write a coherent sentence, because I'm just so angry. So I deleted most of my reply and am leaving it there. I'm sure we are all thinking the same thing anyway.

    Wow. I believe that would either break the horses spirit or turn it dangerously mean. I can't imagine the suffering it is going through.
