There are idiots in every form of showing. The Tennessee Walkng Horses endure all kind of crap.

What possible use would a marble be in horse training? Honestly, I missed out on that. Maybe somebody lost their marbles?

No, it really is true that Big Lick people have been known to place marbles or half golf balls below horses' pads to put painful pressure on the sole and improve the stepping action.

I take people like the person in the video with a grain of salt and move on. Not much else you can do. Can't change people's opinions.

I have heard of marbles in their feet. If you look at the big idea of what he is saying- it does make a little sense. I mean, horses are often pushed to do things that isnt to great for their bodies (i mean like the marbles in their hooves and stuff). Now, I do show, but I am careful to provide plenty of rest for my horse, and not push her to hard. And some of his stuff is quite ridiculous...

How to teach your horse that nipping is okay. And how to get kicked in the face (by Rick Gore Horsemanship) Another dandy instructional video that'll get you hurt if you listen to morons. Did I mention I hate this guy?

If that horse wanted to kick him he would have been unable to give quick discipline. He coldn't have given any discipline until he was done with physical therapy and all the pins were removed from his leg! My 8 year old son knows the proper way to pick up a foot, maybe he should do a you tube video.

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.
