Not sure if this is the right place but I've met a lot of people who think jumping is cruel. They think the riders force the horses over the jumps and ruin their legs. They think jumping is bad for horses. I know this isn't true for the most part. Those horses obviously love their job. They love jumping. It's near impossible to force a horse over a huge jump. What makes people think it is cruel and the riders are forcing jumping on the horses? I know most sports are not natural to a horse and every sport pushes horses to the extent of their abilities. But I don't agree that it's cruel (if the sport is done correctly and the horse likes his job). I'd like to hear opinions agreeing or disagreeing. Would also like to hear stories on ridiculous things people have told you about how normal things we do with our horses are "cruel".
