these people we see doing this stupid stuff... are probably not horse people. They are probably people who know nothing about horses and are putting there faith in the people that do own the horses (who ARE stupid). Ignorance can be a very dangerous thing...

i've never seen a horse tied like that before...

Do you see how angry that horse looks? Could you imagine if he just exploded right there?

We have put our little nieces on the horses at a young as 3 months. One big difference is we are just setting the baby on snapping a photo and off comes baby.. Or holding them while the photo is taken. That horse is POed very bad idea in the real world to put that child in danger. They must be living in happy muffin land.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

That poor horse obviously very unhappy did nothing other than what it was told. As I thought at first glance, if you look closely you will see someone in the background with a stick doing something to the horse's hind end. I'm guessing that is how they are making that poor thing animal move the way it is moving in the video.

Absolutely disgusting.

While I disagree with the child being put up on that horse the actual method of getting the piaffe is not unusual. The Iberian horses are often train in this way. That is not the happiest of horses but then again not all horses look happy doing piaffe.

When you have to train them like that why would you? I feel some things need to be dropped and some people need to not be allowed to be responsible for anyone or anything other than them selves.
