Are they horse people to begin with? Usually when someone comments on something being cruel, they are not informed properly.
Yes, jumping can put a strain on a horses legs and joints, but so can letting them stand in a stall with no activity, and poor bedding.
Lots of people think rodeo is cruel, because the flank strap goes across/under a bull or horses testicles, but I haven't figured out how that works when it is on mares or geldings. ;)
