    The strain on the hock joints must be terrible. I wonder how many horses they go through in a year?

    No kidding. And what does a horse like this retire to? He's pretty much ruined for any kind of a normal horse-human relationship I would think.

    Not a shock collar, you see that kind of collar on akhal tekes, I don't know anything about it but I believe it's just part of the traditional dress, just like the attire of the man in the arena.

    No doubt in my mind that given the opportunity that guy would've been trampled. Very clear signs of aggression there. Just looks like another dangerous circus trick trained through cruelty to me...

    I think it would be easier and safer to train a Poodle to do that.

    Now I'm envisioning a Clifford sized poodle hopping around the ring on it's hind legs.

    Thats not training in my opinion. That's a very delicate dance occurring between one person and one very upset horse. The illusion is who is in control. The illusion nearly broke a few time when the horse backed the person up against the rail and a few other times during the performance. That would be a very different story if the person did not have the whip. I would image that it was "trained" by only having pressure release when up on its hind legs.

    I wonder if the horse purposefully pushes the handler into the wall.

    I would think so, because every way the handler was going the horse was followin - so it would make sense.

    Angry horse aside, there was something unnatural about the way the horse was moving. Am I the only one who found it to be incredibly creepy?
