Shocked and stunned.

This is disgusting.
Once again, I am NOT against TWHs - I like then a lot and am planning on hepling my dad find a nice calm TWH that he can plasure ride.
But this is showing at its worst.

ooo, this kinda stuff (ie. Cruel practices in the gaited horse world) is around the internet a LOT lately.

I'm going to have to stop checking forums/blogs before bedtime. I don't sleep well after seeing this kind of thing. Disgusting.

That is horrible. :( I hate some things that people do just to make a horse look good in a show...

Ride more, worry less.

Yeah, I know right. Ehh...but that lady was so wrong saying it's harmless. Yeah, okay. You can plainly see the horse's legs/hoof areas all hurt.

Ride more, worry less.

"They lay in their stalls moaning in pain and have to be whipped to stand."

WHAT on EARTH makes this people think that this is even remotely right?

OMG!!! Those cruel people! How could they be so convined they weren't hurting the horses!
I don't see the point of making them do those gaits anyway! They look so awkward and weird (as well as painful)!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
