Wow, what an idiot. Maybe somebody should cut off his balls both the guy and the horse. Poor thing.
Well, one of my stories was not too long ago...
I was at a AQHA show with a friend. We were in the barn at MSU and we just sat around talking, etc. When she was going to go outside and warm her horse up. We had to go to the outdoor arena, since the indoor was being in use for the shows. I went out there with her, for the most part I like watching people train horses and trainers training their clients, etc. But this trainer....Oh my gosh I was SO close to slapping him. So my friend went out and lunged her horse for a couple minutes and this horse came loping around the corner. What caught me was his WIDE OPENED EYE. He looked terrified. The trainer had him in a curb bit (without a curb chain I should add) and he was cranking his horse's head up. What I was thinking is that he was trying to get the horse to be tired from holding his head high that he'll hang it low. So he was loping him for a very long time and kept cranking his head high. Not only that but the poor thing was dripping blood from his sides because the poor excuse of a trainer kept slapping him with the spurs. I felt so sorry for that horse. I was about to go give that guy a piece of my mind, but it just wasn't a good idea. Especially with the amount of people that guy had I probably would've been kicked out.
Anyways, next time I see that I'm going to report it. Its sick.
