I own a wonderful TWH that I bought the day he was weaned.
I do not need to watch the video, I am aware of the abuse at the top levels.
I think you can find it in almost any discipline, if you look hard enough.

Maybe someday it will stop, but as long as people care more about winning against other people than they do living creatures, it won't.

Wow, that's horrible...I can't imagine what kind of pain those horses are forced into from that. I mean no wonder they're laying down half the time! I don't think they have much of a choice, it's either suffer through pain even more by standing and putting pressure where it hurts, or laying down to ease it even if a little bit at the risk of getting in trouble.

As I see it, horses are people too, and if only they could speak, I'm sure we'd be getting ear-fulls every single day!!

If I worked in that stable like that lady in the video did, I'd do everything in my power to make sure they were stopped, horses are too beautiful to even think about hurting, it's just so sad. :(

I watched one a few weeks ago...and was too shocked.

OMG this makes me sick to my stomach. I would love to take him and beat him in a public place for all to see and then bring the horses he abused in to step on him

Sorry ... Don't think my real words would have been appropriate

Sorry to double post, I did that first one on my phone. My first ever experiance watching a big lick class is this video: Around 1:40 was very disturbing to me...

I find it hard to believe that this even goes on and how the trainers get wins from this movement.. I wanna take a trip to the shows and show my "support" ... But I'd probably get shot.

Tinyliny, google Papa's Royal Delight - he's a registered TWH stallion here in Missouri who has mopped up in the 'natural' TWH classes. Here's a video of him cantering. This is achieved by breeding, training, and no soring practices or chains.
In fact, his owner is a gifted gaited horse trainer, horse lover, and tireless advocate of Friends of Sound Horses, which promotes sound shoeing and humane handling practices. I would love to have one of Papa's offspring, I think they move like magic.

It's a testament to the stoic, huge hearts of this breed that they 'try' to please these human beings who are truly torturers. Even the ones who don't 'make' - e.g., can't be trained as show horses because they don't tolerate the abuse -- are not winners even though they escape the torture.

This made me absolutely sick..

That video was made by the Humane Society by an undercover operator at the stable to document that particular trainers activities and to publicize the actions still out there in some barns the industry.

We concern our selves with the soring, but there is no way a horse can be bred to have such a large overstride. Look at what this is doing to the stifles and hocks. If you watch Big Lick from behind the back legs are literally flapping side to side.
