yes i know i do the same with tarps. I am not saying it is dumb or bad. I am saying it looks cute. Especially since it is a baby. The white mark was more of a response to the halflinger filly's "saddle marks". Like i said hes a beautiful horse. Most of the Aztecas are breathtaking. there are a lot around here.

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

yes punks tank. There are TONS "dancing horses" around here. Most of them are very tense and most of them wear very short tie downs. They are usually very beautiful horses but the training uses a lot of fear. I have a friend who bought a horse that was trained to dance. He said the horse would dance if music was played. hmmmm. the horse isnt what you would call relaxed.

Hmm I don't know much about "dancing horses". I looked at the last pic but I guess not knowing what they do I didn't see anything wrong. Think I am going to go have to do some reading now. Is this more of a southern/mexican kind of thing?

NBEventer, it is almost exclusively a Hispanic thing. Look up dancing horses on YouTube. I haven't seen one dancing horse trainer that I would feel comfortable calling humane.

While I don't agree with everything in this video, it's a good explanation about dancing horses (caution, it's a tough video to watch - I had to turn it off a few times):

yes a mexican thing. I think there was a thread on here with a video on the horrible training that goes into these "dancing" horses. Most of its just a very exaggerated piaffe. But the way they train it is very different than dressage. It explains why dressage horses move calmly and the dancing horses are tense and scared.

Oh my god... I don't even know what to say. I was in tears at parts of that video. Those poor horses.

I hope someone scoops that poor little guy up before he ends up in such a vile nasty life :(

Obviously but his life could continue that way. From the sounds of the ad it doesn't seem he has done a lot of it so there is still a chance to save him before it gets worse. That is heart breaking.
