: I understand your opinion here, and to some extent I agree with you. The horse is very very dangerous and almost impossible to handle. I don't even want to imagine how it will be if the horse will escape. For this reason we tie the horse with two halters and two lead ropes. The possibility of him being in danger and couldn't escape is smaller than the possibility of him escaping and injure or even kill someone.
We have an experienced horsemen available, I really trust him to train this horse. The person that is dealing with the horse in the video has a lot of experience but is still young and to brave for his own safety. But he and the other person that I'm talking about are the only one that can handle the horse. With a lot of risks that's true but it's their choice to do so.
And if you saw some of my posts you will understand that the rescue center is notorious for dealing with hopeless chases. We have a management (administration) that want to be heroic all the time. They are against euthanasia (they agree with it only in limit cases) and they want to give a chance to all the horses. It doesn't depends if their chances of survival or rehabilitation are very limited. And I can't fight with them. I only try to help with what I can, considering that I'm not very experienced myself. And I always try to find second opinions.
