What in the name of all that is good is WRONG with this world?
I don't know why I'm surprised WHATSOEVER, but every so often I stumble upon a video that makes me sob a little more for the horse industry. I was showing my brother-in-law the atrocities of Big Lick and happened upon this gem.
This is a COMING 2 year old - in December. So, basically, assuming the average horse is born in April, that means this darling filly was only a year and a half. And already completely trained.
I hope something truly and horribly and wretchedly awful happens to the sick twisted SOB's who did this to her and every other horse who's forced to live this horrific life. :-(

Ugh. *resisting the urge to write a long, detailed letter explaining where this person should go because it will not get me anywhere....* :?
Sad. :( She's so young.
It took every urge I had not to blast him because he obviously deletes the comments from his main page on a regular basis and it rolls off like water on a ducks back.
I just felt physically ill thinking of how many of these poor babies every single year have to endure the same BS for the sake of money and trophies.
Love how the comments are disabled.
the age thing aside - i don't understand what the point is of having a horse move like that. horses don't MOVE like that on their own. at least, i've never seen one of any breed do that without a rider. :(
now on the age thing - i had someone tell me the other day that i should start backing my colt now because "well you're not that big and it'll be fine". um... he'll be 11mths old on monday. are you nutz? no way.
You know, it really doesn't surprise me that that guy's riding posture sucked.
I think what makes this video 100 times more horrific is the fact the horse is using an unnatural gait.
IMO, I don't have a problem with people backing coming 2 year olds, but having a completely trained horse that is just now turning 2 will NEVER be even remotely ok in my book.
I think everybody knows where that guy can go so I won't say it.
That's horrible. Did anyone else notice him gouge her under the belly with those big spurs he was wearing right at the end in the slo-mo? That poor baby. Doing an artificial gait like that so young, she's bound to have all sorts of leg and joint, and probably back issues when she gets a bit older.
How sad. That poor thing :( That was almost painful to watch. I noticed the spurs too. Sad to think about what her future has to offer.
