Call immigration? Jokes aside, if you bother AC enough, they eventually have to do something. Get some friends to report them. As far as the race thing, I have to admit I have seen some **** ranches and some good ones. The **** ones usually did have Mexican hands that treated the horses very poorly, but it's still not something you can solely ascribe to race. I've seen white people treat horses cruelly as well. I've seen Mexicans that blow me and fifteen like me away in ridership, bonding, and teaching. Not that I'm any guru, but I know some stuff. Lol. Wallotext end, all I have to say is do something. Silence gives consent.

I agree it is no excuse, but it is different culture and well...you know...rather not get deeper into that issue because I don't want this thread to go crazy off topic.

Just because it is a different culture hardly means that your barn and its workers make up the majority of "mexicans".....

You're making excuses perhaps because you are afraid of being called names or people judging to conclusions.

Not all mexicans are bad, but if they ARE being bad you need to bring it to Animal Control's attention. What if they get so drunk that they leave the gates open and the horses run off? Then it would be your problem.

I second not supporting this type of atmosphere with my hard earned money. I'd fear for the safety of the horses if they find it OK to carry on as they are doing.

Actually I'm not making any excuses. Animal control has been called. Nothing has been done. Why must you assume I'm stating that all Mexicans are bad. I'm sorry, but I see nowhere where that was said. This is why I did not want to elaborate more on the "Mexican" thing. People just don't understand the Mexican culture where I live. I'm afraid of being called names? Sorry, but I'm not 12 lol you made me chuckle

This implies you were toe stepping.

I merely talked about the elephant in the room. I didn't assume you felt that way about them, just merely stating fact. Sorry dear but the one that assumes in this situation is you.

Also I'm glad you called Animal Control but I'm not a mind reader so I was just putting fourth my vote to contact them.
