Because you don't agree with the way this particular owner deals with its horse doesn't mean it's wrong. The owner obviously cares, even if not in the same way you would. If the horse is happy, healthy, well cared for and supplied with any routine or emergency medical attention it needs, mind your own business.
I'm sure you'd say something similar about me, maybe worse. I'm rarely able to make it to the barn right now, my horses are rarely ridden, and mostly just hang out in the pasture and graze or stand in the barn and eat hay. But they are of good weight, healthy, feet are trimmed every 4 weeks for my mare with soundness issues and every 8 weeks for my other horse. The vet is called in an emergency, and they are subjected to routine vet care as well.
Just because you would do it different doesn't make the other person wrong. There are far worse things a horse could be than a pampered, expensive pet.
