My TWH had heavy chains before i got him. Poor guy. And I'm sure they did the crap under the tail to get him to hold it up. And pads on his fronts. Yah, he's a rescue and has the scars to show it. TWHs get a lot of the cruelty in the show ring. I'm all for letting the horse gate naturally without the aid of torture devices. I don't know how he associates evil people with shows, because not all evil people show horses. Some are politicians, some are businessmen, and others have Youtube chanels. oh wait, the last one isn't evil, he's just an idiot.
