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.
"Accidents" happen in all equestrian sports. The thing is, racing IS about money and that's why breeders, and trainers of the racing industry push young horses so hard. If it wasn't about the money they wouldn't be in such a rush to push immature horses to top level within a matter a months. Like jumping 6ft fences is not easy on a horse, but no body does that on a BABY! People wait until they are psyhically mature enough to do it.

Again, all equine sports have "bad people" in the industry who cut corners or do crazy things that end up hurting or killing horses. Racing is not a BAD sport and niether are any of the others, it's the fact that hunderds of horses are killed every year because greedy people are in such a hurry to make money they aren't concerned for the horses welfare.

Perhaps it's just me, But a horse blowing out it's whole leg and still running while bone fragments shatter every where is a much more gruesome and horrific event, compared to rollkur, and neck or back breaking. Of course that same type of blow out can happen in any sport, if the rider is idoitic enough to think running at that speed is safe.

That is in no way a typical two year old race! I've seen many two year old races and in actual fact its not many two year olds that race. Only if they are grown and stong enough and that does happen. It is true that two year old runners don't last as long but I have never heard of anything like that!! Those horses are being flogged to death... literally! This breeze thingo is bull "bad words"

Green Broke
Wacthed without the volume.


The worst, for me, that horse in slow motion running on the broken/severed leg/stump. Turned my stomach.

Any person that can do this to horses deserves to be locked up. There is sport, then there is pushing too far. We take care of ourselves as sport people, why not look after our animals too. MAKES ME MAD.

I am against horse 'sports' anyway. I wonder, if given a choice, what a horse would choose to do with his life instead of what the human wants.

Wow! Yearlings?! That's amazing....

That just made me sooo sick feeling. How can you push such a young horse like that! Once the leg broke I had to stop watching.. Wayyy to nasty for me.
