    As irritating as comments on a thread like this can be, it's worth it for us to read, digest and/or comment. WE, the horse owners, need to police our industry NOT the bleeding hearts that go from recognizing obvious abuse to suggesting that working your horse is abusive.
    Why do these same people walk by under-sized and over-worked carraige horses in the big cities?......sorry, abuse segeway...
    I already "Liked" comments above, if you want my opinion of this particular case.

    Also, if you look these were taken on 2 separate occasions, trainer wearing different clothes. As soon as I got my little guy he was desensitized to everything I could find, swing ropes around and on him, plastic bags, flank rope ect, he even broke a sweat more than once of course that couldn't possibly be cause it was summer time but I must be abusive to my horse. Like many others the only thing I see wrong is backing him. Otherwise it's just preparing for future training IMO.

    Don't live in a city. Live on an island in the middle of the north sea no carriage horses up here if there was abused carriage horses up here we would phone the sspca even though they are useless up here.

    I have no problems except for the mounting. Everyone knows horses can be spooky and trailers are spooky things. To say I've never seen even a well trained calm horse in great hands spook at a trailer in the begining would be a lie. Bit? It's not hurting it. Saddling? That's not hurting it. So, mounting is my only issue

    So if you think this is abuse, as you say, why would you not call the SSPCA in this case? Carriage horses were just being mentioned because that was one of the recent other "abused horses" threads. Has nothing really to do with the horses you post about really, nor was anyone referring to carriage horses in Scotland. Your SSPCA may be "useless", but I would suggest they may be better able to actually DO something then folks like me at a computer half way across the world.

    Oh-and as for the person referring to your "fat pony on skinny legs"-I doubt they thought you could do something about the legs...so no need to defend that. I am thinking it was the "fat" part they took issue with. Same theory as the foal. Too much weight on teeny legs.....only your ponies are at least developed.

    I think franknbeans makes the point that bothers me.

    It's really easy to drum up a following and cry "OMG .. Abuse" .. by posting a 70 second video, or some still pictures depicting .. whatever .. than it is to actually do something to make some horse's life better.

    If it's really abuse in your eyes, send the video to the authorities .. or contact the people yourself , or have them further investigated .. or something.

    IMO

    I think if anyone calls that 'training', you have a sheet pulled over your eyes.
    Most of the comments on that YOUTUBE video, I think, are spot on. Gotta love youtube.

    Sitting on that foal is horrible.

    I did work my foals in a round pen and handle them.

    They had to trailer to get to the horses shows.

    They where in the show ring at about four months.

    Sitting on a foal at that age is just crazy. I give the foal props for putting up with that first of all! I don't mind the bit, it's nice to start early, but sitting on the foal went a little too far.
