Using chains on rearing horse

Just a perfect example of how "great" it is...........

Had been at the local show this Sun (just to watch). Someone brought the 2 year old really big and nice looking boy (not sure gelding or still colt). He got SO excited that just started to rear almost non-stop: in ring, and outside. Instead of taking him away from other horses (or better just drive back home) or AT LEAST lunge him or move the hindquarters to prevent rearing the owners just kept jerking the chain on his nose. Certainly didn't stop him at all - just got worse. He ended up falling and got stuck between the fence boards scared to death. Thankfully there were other SMART people around who run and dragged him away from the fence, so his legs got free and he could get up. Guess what? His owners shown no concern - just laughed and kept jerking him after the accident. He kept rearing again. I left before the end of this show but HOW PEOPLE CAN BE SO IGNORANT! They certainly don't deserve to own any horse...

Ugh... I hate to hear stories like this! Sorry you had to watch :(

Somehow I think I would feel better if I could jerk them around with a chain under their lip...
