I'm talking about the ones that do. And what they do is they put some kind of chemical such as karosene, mustard oil, ect. and the put it over the pasturns of the horse. Then they rap it so it burns the horse when it puts it's feet down so he picks them up quickly.

Another way is they file there feet down to the quick and the do the gait on the road for like an hour. To make the horses feet very sore.

They also used to put tacks and nails under there shoes.

It's awful.

One of my friends that had bought a 5 year old Tennesee Walker and it had come from a barn where they filed the feet so short that it made the horses sore, and that caused them to pick up their feet really quick! It was awful she didn't even ride it for the first 5 months she had it because they just let it's feet grow out. And it was the sweetest horse I had ever met and I can't understand why someone would do that to such a young horse, or any horse!!

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

There is a lot of money to be made in that event. It's not truly the event that gives the money, it's the horse.
the horse will win a lot of ribbons, making it worth a lot of money, so they can sell the horse. OR the horse will win a lot of money, making the horses baby worth a lot of money. people will start breeding with the horse to creat champion foals, but these people are not smart because if the dad or mom was harmed to win the ribbons, then the "skill" will not be passed on to the foal.
Lol i learned that in Biology!!! it's called the theory of acquired characteristics.
it's so mean i dont know why someone would do that.
