    ONE person does something bad and we ALL get blamed.





    Ok, those pictures are pretty bad. But seriously? There are more of us that DON'T ride with our horse's heads cranked back.

    And, sorry if I shouldn't have posted this.

    Wow.
    That is all I can say.. is wow, there is no words to describe how hurtful that video is, Not all equestrian's are like that, and I feel like they are blaming the whole equestrian community. I would never do anything of that sort to my horse, and anyone who does, need's to be more educated..

    I do find that they need to more educated on tack and equipment, (person who made video) About martingale's and whips and spurs etc, they only harm, if they are used inappropriatly. They were not made to specifically inflict harm upon an animal, or living animal.

    Hopefully people know better than that

    Exactly my thoughts.

    I don't think that bits and spurs need to be removed from the horse horse world AT ALL. However, think the equestrian world needs more education as to HOW to appropriately use some equipment. Or, maybe, if you don't know how to properly use it, DON'T!

    I won't say this happens only in the competitive arenas but I'm betting its the majority.
    When cash and ribbons are on the line, anything goes.

    Yes, I've never shown horses but I see it in other livestock competitions just as well. I wouldn't doubt it for a second. It's the only way to win nowadays, so why not?

    Sad, sad.

    Most of those pictures were just horses caught with their mouths open...

    This video makes me gag! If I took pictures of anybody riding I could take them out of context and show the person "abusing" thier horse. Some of those pictures were of people falling off, how is that abuse? In the end the point of the video was to get you to join a bridleless and barefoot club (pretty **** stupid in my opinion) and I'm sure they have something to sell.

    I don't have anything against Bridleless and barefoot clubs!
    It's a good thing in my opinion.
    But heck, NOT with advertising like THIS.

    Frankly, even without a bridle and barefoot, you can still abuse your horse.

    I don't think any club/group/.. that does a specific activity washes it's hands in inocense (I hope I spelled that right! Not english by nature)

    Don't get me started on this video.
    Some of those horses were on loose reins in a snaffle.
    The rest were being held in proper head carriage and were either chewing on the bit, or yawning.
    Very few were cruel.
