Ok now my time for a pet peeve rant from me then- and its about the blue tongue video.
Does anyone actually know the backstory on the horse? Has anyone actually cared to find out? The horse plays with its bits, constantly. This is not an uncommon thing. Another not uncommon thing is for horses with active mouths to get their tongues over the bit. Again, not uncommon is for the tongue to then stick out of the mouth. Finally, another not uncommon thing that happens to horses who get their tongues over bits is for the tongue to lose circulation. So, rider notices horses tongue is over the bit, what does he do but reach down, put the tongue back in and encourage the horse to take it back under the bits. I fail to see how that constitutes abuse, or makes it alright to chastise the poor guy. He has received death threats over that video. Give me an effing break... that happens to horses all over the world, rolkur or not.
Peoples idiotic responses to stuff like that makes me want to throw up.
