Honestly, that paragraph wasn't half bad. It sounded like they thought horseback riding was ok as long as it was done based on mutual respect, isn't that what we all are striving for?
The use of whips and spurs however, are a different matter. All I had to do was ride with a crop in my hand and my horse would listen to me, I never had to use it. Is that punishment, or riding cruelly? No. Neither are spurs if used properly. So I do disagree with that part of it.
