If this is illegal than why is it happening? Instead of taking the time to edit a video about this ~ get the law involved!! This should not be happening :(

This made me absolutely sick..

I cried, just seeing the horse at the beginning of the video get HIT. Disgusting, disgusting people. DISGUSTING.

I didn't watch the video because I've seen plenty of it lately in the news. I live in Nasvhille,TN and this has been in the news with a trainer here that was using terrible techniques to train walkers. Here's a link to the article about it.

Sometimes I'm ashamed to be a part of the human race.. I just can't fathom what would posess a "person" to do that to a helpless animal. I hope these people end up in prison, with a cell mate named "Bubba" if you catch my drift. Sickening.

No words.
None.
I'm not going to go into details about what I'd like to do to that man, because I could probably get arrested for even saying those things.
Anyone who does this. Anyone. Has NO sympathy from me.
My belief is that just as there are people that are 'deformed' on the outside, there are people that are 'deformed' on the inside...
People that can do these things, anything like this, should be, frankly, put down.
That guys been in it since 1979... He's not going to change.
I dont understand why the industry doesn't ban the stacks and the chains. Would decrease the cases by a lot imo. The stacks do enough damage without soring- to the ligaments and tissues. Not to mention the issues the rest of the horses body will get from moving in such an unnatural way.
The most ironic thing is that as far as i know- these horses were bred- this gait was bred to be comfortable and effortless for horse and rider.
I dont think it looks like it is... I think it looks ridiculous. Heres a great video that will REALLY put how ridiculous it looks into perspective. index
(Sorry for the violent nature of this post- but I cant stand cruelty to animals- or people. I also do not mean to offend anyone here- religious or otherwise. I'm not talking about the TWH industry as a whole)

I couldn't stand to watch the whole thing, it's disgusting the things people do.

that is just so terrible! I dont see how any person could ever do that to an animal! We should beat the people with those sticks and show them how it feels! ugh
