I'd say that he needs a new rider...One who could give him a good smack upside the head once in a while and teach him some **** respect. Honestly people like her are the reason why hospitals are up and running and innocent people getting hurt.

BTW - I removed an earlier image, but she was nailed by the edge of the hoof right at the top of the eyebrow.

Lol yes. But I mean maybe a parent?! I'm 19 and out of the house and my parents still look out for me. Her parents should be trying to keep her out of these dangerous situations..

This girl is an idiot. I totally see that. BUT I am so OFFENDED that so many of you are talking about killing the horse! I thought we were all horse lovers, hence the horse forum... yup, he has issues. and attitude. and training issues. BUT seriously?! I know some of you aren't being serious but I am actually horrified you would joke about killing a horse. I am kind of new to the forums and I am scared to come back... this is awful.

Bijou, no one is joking about killing the horse--we're completely serious. We are definitely a community of horse lovers here. However, this is a downright dangerous animal that will seriously injure someone else in the future. He's already proven that he will. There are just too many good horses in the world to risk time and safety on horses like these. That was a very deliberate and well-aimed kick to the head, NOT an accident. The horse is dangerous.

I wouldn't hesitate to kill a horse that was vicious. I don't think that horse is vicious - just badly trained and ridden. If someone treated Mia (my Arabian mare) the way that horse is, I could imagine her trying to take out her rider.

As it is, the one time I came off her, I shouted her name and she ran back to me so fast I thought I was going to be trampled. Then she stuck her head next to me and waited for me to make the bad thing go away...while I used her for support to help me limp home.

But Mia has her own sense of right and wrong, and could probably be made into a mean horse by someone she thought was unfair. I do believe some horses are just mean, and those I would kill without any hesitation. I also wouldn't go too far in trying to retrain a horse who was dangerous, because a horse can kill someone too easily.

Bijou, do you actually think that horse can be untrained after he deliberately aimed and kicked at that girl. What makes it worse, if he had killed her and been put up for sale, he could kills someone else. This girl is doing nothing, but training dangerous horses. I only stated on this forum a little over a month ago and have found that there everyone on here is a horse lover, but it also comes to a point where the horse has been overly let go. I know if he had done that to me, that I would never be able to trust him again and there is no way I would put that problem onto someone else.

In a way, I see this as a form of animal abuse. She is pushing her horses to the limits and is going to wind up in a wheelchair. Hopefully someone will have a sit down and talk to her about this. I know I was a wild child at 18 too, but it isn't just her life she is endangering, but the lives of her horses.

If you had a family dog that chewed your childs face off, would you put the dog to sleep?

It's kind of like a man, you know how sometimes they think with the "wrong head"? She's thinking with her heart so in her hearts mind... It was an accident.
