Katesrider: yes, they are. Not all horses need them...so for my mare I prefer not to use them. For a horse whose feet are sensitive or chip easily, the shoes are there to help.

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

OH, and would just like to add: I know a lot of horses who get upset and downright sulk if you don't take them out for a ride!!! (even horses with cruel shoes on their feet and horrible bits in their mouths) I hope that the girl comes to some realization soon before she gets hurt. It's dangerous to let 1,000 pound animals boss you around. I do believe in respecting them, but they need to respect you as well. MUTUAL RESPECT.

I would just like to say, I think it is rediculous what she has posted. There are several pictures in which she posts as "this is clearly a horse who is pain cause of the bit" but you can tell that the horse is whinnying and what about horses that chew their bits? Of course this is in my opinion.

WOW!!! thats all i can really say.... she is kinda crazy and mostly wrong about her opinions on what is hurting the horse... I also find it childish she would do something like that and use pictures of people she knows... they talk alot about educating people in their comments but to me it seems like they need to be educated themselves ( just my opinion on the matter)

I love how everyone is talking about the event in the first pic you showed as being "poles"...that's not poles OR pole weaving...that's KEYHOLE, or Keyrace, whatever you are used to calling it...Lol!

I agree with Amlalriiee too. I had a thoroughbred who would just go crazy if I didn't ride him regularly, and you can't say it was from being in a stall, he had a nice big pasture with a run in shed and some buddies!

I just can't get over everything that she thinks is cruel. With the shoes, yes I've seen horses where the shoe hurt, not helped out. But what about the horses with naturally thin soles? Does she want them to stumble around in pain because shoes are so horrible and unatural? Please! (and don't me started on how bad leg wraps, polo's etc. are damaging too! :roll:)
