    Question: Is it ok for us to put videos of cruel or bad riding we find on the internet up on this forum? I just want to know.

    Comment: I also noticed that the horse was straining fiercely against a tie down. Ridden this way, how long will that horse stay rideabley sound?
    This sort of riding is nearly unheard of out in the Seattle area. I have never seen it except on video. But I wonder . HOrses in the gaiting world, are they bred , used and discared pretty quick like? I don't know what it's like where this mare comes from. I would sincerely like to know what that is all about. Who buys theres horses? Do they only use them for shows? I mean, is there any normal, daily use way to use a horse like that?

    99% sure its against the rules

    But I highly disagree with that policy. Say you take the video the OP posted. People will give their opinions and critique it, I find that educational.

    As far as I'm concerned, if it is posted on the internet- its fair game. If you do not wish for your photos or videos to be critique then don't post them online.

    YouTube is a video sharing site. If somebody wants to post a video the world can access, then they should realize people are going to judge. And posting a link to a Youtube video on this forum I think is fair. (I'm not sure on forum rules about it though)

    I can't even watch it; we all KNOW what kind of future she will endure. (or not) I have said it beofre and will say it again, it (cruelty/inhumanity) will be tolerated as long as there is money that can be made from it in the horse world. Wish we could change that~PATHETIC.

    I believe we had this discussion previously, and it's only the Critique section you can't post vids/pics that aren't you and ask for a critique. This is a discussion on a public video and I'm almost positive it's ok as virtually every fifth post on HF Videos is of a random YouTube video.

    I understand completely if the mods would rather remove it, I just think we're all pretty universally in agreement that a fully trained 1.5 year old Walker with such extreme equipment on is a travesty of the horse world.

    Maybe if more people are aware of the suffering these poor animals endure, we can do more to stop this terrible practice.

    Basically yes. TWH retiree's or rescues are a lot like racehorse retiree's or rescues - you find them at auction because they've broken down and because they only know how to do ONE thing, nobody wants them. TWH are easy to rehab, but even worse off then Thoroughbreds - the injuries and body wear and tear they endure almost guarantees you will have soundness issues in every TWH that comes off the Big Lick circuit.

    They are only used for shows and never know anything different - they are locked in stalls and go through agonizing pain for most (if not all) of their lives. I honestly don't know what becomes of them after retirement, I know the mares are kept and there are a LOT of rescues and rehabs - as for the other percentage, I'd also be interested to know how many retire with some relative degree of soundness and who buys a retired TWH. How many go to slaughter?

    I do believe this type of extreme is localized almost exclusively in Tennessee. People have ostracized it virtually every where else, and opt for the much more natural flat shod TWH shows.

    I don't believe the members here are supposed to pull random videos just to pick apart the people. Rather in poor taste.
