    Let's not forget the Conscientious Etiquette Policy either.

    The Horse Forum was created so that people can discuss horses in a friendly, fun, helpful environment. While the Horse Forum is open to the public, we reserve the right to restrict access to those who undermine our efforts to preserve the character of the community.

    Please exercise what we call conscientious etiquette when you post. This means that you keep the objective of preserving the forum's friendly, fun, helpful environment in the forefront of your mind as you write your message.

    If your post is nasty, condescending, rude, etc., regardless of how subtle, and whether shrouded in the form of opinion or otherwise, it is subject to be removed and your access to the Horse Forum may be restricted.

    This applies to the Critique forum as well. People come here because they are passionate about their horses. Naturally, a biting critique about an animal a person is passionate about can be very hurtful. While a request for critique implicitly invites criticism, the sensitive nature of such topics is all the more reason to post conscientiously, keeping the other person's feelings in mind.

    Our interest in preserving the nature of the community trumps our interest in allowing everyone to share their opinion here. If you can't share your opinion in such a way so as to preserve the friendly, fun, helpful nature of the community, don't.

    Please exercise conscientious etiquette when you post. Please use the alert button to notify the Horse Forum Staff when you read something by somebody who clearly hasn't.

    If you have any questions, please contact a moderator or Administrator

    And please don't accuse anyone of abusing their horses. We are all part of this forum for one huge reason, our love for horses. And we all know there are numerous ways to discipline a horse. One way that works for you will not work with everyone.

    Let's just be nice and continue on with the conversation from the OP

    My last post:

    I don't want people thinking I hurt my horses. I would never hurt my horse at all. I am not going to post anymore in this forum, but I just wanted people to know this.

    Remember that horses can feel a fly on their bodies, so what do you think a smack feels like, much less a kick? Yes, I smack my horses on the chest or butt when it's been misbehaving, and I do use a whip. However, I do not and never will kick a horse, especially not in the gut, that's, well, like me kicking you in the gut - it's a crippling pain.
    Anyways, that's my opinon.

    Sorry, I said I wouldn't post again, but I needed to add one more thing. People and horses are two different things. Horses are bigger animals. Yes, they can feel a fly, but kicking as hard as you would smack a horse is fine. To me at least. I never kick, but my friends never kick harder than they can slap.

    My last post, I swear it now!

    Regardless, I don't find it nice or even humane to kick a horse in the gut.

    Okay, two sides. My ideas aren't all bad, y'alls aren't either. I'm done here!

    Omigosh! I don't know why, but I'm shaking after this! Maybe from embarrasment, or upset. I'm so not good in situations like this, even over the internet! If I was talking to y'all face to face, I'd be crying! LOL!

    I'll make this short......

    Yes, you can hurt a horse, and not just physically. You can damage a horse mentally and emotionally and that is just as sad as physically.

    I also do not agree with kicking a horse. I just think it's unneccesary in any situation......whether it's meant to correct a horse or to get him to go faster while being ridden. While being ridden, it just makes a horse dull.

    The End :)

    Oh my goodness .... little did I know how much controversy this would cause by making this post. Mods feel free to delete this if need be.
