Only thing more painful to watch than that video are the poorly written youtube comments.

And yet when horses die annually doing eventing, nobody says boo. Interesting.

Accidents happen in any sport, but a quick google search says that in eventing

Information about horse fatalities is difficult to locate, but at least 19 eventing horses, many of them top-level performers, died in 2007 & 2008, most of them in the US.
and for racing

Around 700 race horses die or are euthanized every year in the US. Statistics are hard to find as there is no one source that keeps track of horse deaths and injuries
Maybe that's why, a lot of difference to me asking a baby with legs built for for speed to give their all before their time. Eventers I believe must be at least 7 before performing at top level.

Not the same comparison at all

In the horse world, a two year old is qualified as a yearling. Anything under two years is a foal.

This is sad. The things people do for money.. ridiculous.

The same way a dressage horse's neck goes to pot because of rollkur

The same way hunting horses break their necks and backs falling into ditches. You won't find stats on this because they just drag them out and send them to the hunt kennels.

Will we even go there on bronc riding?

I'm well used to do "anti-racing" people. I don't care which sport people compete or have interest in, everybody is different and the world would be a boring place if we all agreed on the same thing.

As used to it as I am, I do get annoyed with people believing we are these big bad horrible people rolling in the cash who couldnt give a toss about our horses. Videos like that create a witch hunt, if PETA and SHARK had their way all ponies would run free with no riders on their back and live happily ever after.

A yearling is just that - a YEARling

A 2 year old is a 2 year old. You'll find quite a few two year olds racing are doing so at two years - breeders aim for them to be foaled as early in the year as possible in order for them to be as mature as possible. It's a well known fact that there are plenty of horses with the 1st or 2nd of January as their registered birthdate - that were foaled in the last week or so of December. Obviously not all, but we have very few 2 year olds with a birthdate later than March.

What would cut back on these breezers is if it were possible to restrict the breeding of low quality mares. Unfortanetly people thinks they are going to take a mare who has won a mid level claimer or handicap and create a champion with a cheap stud. As I said above, these breezers tend to be the ones who can't get into proper yearling sales as they aren't good quality - cut back on the low quality mares/stallions will mean cutting back on low quality foals.

Humans can be incredibly selfish. I have even seen 2 year olds being ridden 250 hard miles across my state on an organized ride. Why? Why do people rush these babies? Selfish! Do not tell me they truly care about these horses. It makes me sick. These babies are NOT mature! Their body and mind cannot handle the stresses!

Yeah but where is the comparison of how many horses raced in that year compared to how many horses evented? Why do I have a feeling the sheer number is skewed by comparison due to just how many times more horses raced as opposed to evented?

Saying that cancer A kills more people then cancer B is not accurate if only 10 people who contracted cancer A died out of 100 people who contracted it, opposed to the 5 out of 10 people who died of cancer B.
