If Peta's "perfect" world were real. There would be horses all over the place in the wild, and there would be a horse hunting season. Yeah let's see what peta thinks of that.

Rescue organizations are always started with the best intentions and then for whatever reason, the mentality changes and they head towards the extreme. It's a shame.

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.

Same here!
PETA could say the same thing for a lot of animals, but idk what they're thinking for horses.
For example:
Dogs used to be wild and were (are) pack animals, but that doesn't mean we let 'em loose because it's their "nature" or whatever. Some dogs only know to live in a house with a human, or be a lap dog. So if we let them go back to their old ways, they wouldn't be able to survive

Actually I would have assumed that PETAs response to horse riding would have been worse than that.

Me, too, Alex.

To the OP, I wouldn't hold much stock in what PETA has to say. They have gotten so caught up in the war that they have forgotten the cause, IMO. Most of the info put out by PETA is down right crazy.

PETA is a bunch of humaniacs .. Idiots. They say one thing and mean another.

That is a suck you in PETA proclamation.

Their over all stance is no domesticated animals being kept as pets or as livestock at all.

I think this video was brought up in the last thread about PETA, but it's on horse-drawn carriages in New York, not actual riding.

Watch it with sound, then watch it without. The script they give Lea Michele makes it sound like the worst possible thing you could ever do to a living creature. Making an animal bred for pulling things..actually pull things? How dare they. If you watch it without sound, it's a video of a horse doing its job completely content. Le sigh.

My Psychology professor is completely against PETA because they've destroyed experiments he's been apart of, so we went on a rant about them in class one day. It ended with "If they have such a problem with doing medical experiments on animals, they can volunteer themselves. That'd be rid of them pretty fast." Bahaha.
