    Keep in mind though that those clips are from one training stable. You can't condemn all for the actions of one.
    Encouraging the action in the show ring and giving $ for winning encourages stables like this to operate this way. You cannot have one without the other. How about you just eliminate this unnatural action from the show ring, period?
    I am SOOOO GLAD that you posted this and SOOO GLAD that somebody took the trouble to take these photos. You can see the pain in their bugged out eyes. I never saw this look in my (natural) TWH's or TWH mixes. BUT, we did have experiences with "Merry Boy's Hart" that indicated past abuse, like when he tripped with my DH aboard. He took a fall--no injuries bc he rolled off, really, but the HORSE took off as if we were going to beat him. I think we finally convinced the horse that we didn't treat our animals like this.

    Watching that made me physically ill.

    I don't like to think violently, but give me 10 minutes in a room alone with that trainer, or anyone else who does that to a horse KNOWING the pain that it causes, they might not come back out.

    Those kind of people aren't worth the horse **** that they step in.

    I agree with you all...... and the sad thing is they all look like nice horses :( to tell the truth , even if it was the ugliest thing I had ever seen , I still would have reacted the same :(

    Like most of you, it made me sick and I had tears running down my face
    I think they should get a taste of their own medicine...good on the person who jailed a trainer- I think a better punishment would be to put stuff on THEIR legs until it burns through the ligaments and when they physical can't walk , whip them and hit them and shove an electric cattle prod in their faces and make them walk rediculously unnatural untill their bodies hurt! (sorry to any TWH people just in my opinion)

    I was horrified.....

    It made me want to puke when they had the horses canter. Other than the buckskin, it looked horrifically painful for those horses to canter.. And watching them move their rear legs is awful.
    But like alot of sports involving animals, people will do anything to win, so when something keeps being given awards and money, more folks will copy.

    Is there any showing of TWh's that does not utilize those freaky shoes? How can that movement be considered desireable or in any way natural? How can a horse that walks that way, with it's hocks hyper bent like that , not be lame in a couple of years?

    Things like this make me ashamed to be part of the human race. I have very strong opinions on what we as a race have done to this planet, I won't even start. I will spare you all

    I think it looks freaky, horrible, unnatural, painful and totally undesirable.

    I could write for hours about what I think we have done to this world we live in today. It's disgraceful. We think we are some huge superior race, at the top of the food chain.

    Shove a man in Africa with NO weapons... yeah... good luck!

    I won't get started because as I said, I have strong opinions on many things...
