The guy got a slap on the wrist and a pat on the back.
Give me a break.
He should be banned from AQHA for life, and not be allowed to train any horse for many years.
Thing is, he's been known for years to be "harsh" with his animals... but people keep sending horses to him because he wins.
Way to keep your integrity, AQHA.
ETA - any trainer found with this sort of abuse or worse should get the punishment they're due. It's true Tiff, this is nowhere near the worst of the worst, but he should still be reprimanded, at least to send a message.
