The Real horse Abuse

I was just reading on the boards,about one person who had been using a harsh bit on her healthy horse and some people had been saying it was horse abuse etc..

Watching these videos by this idiotic pathetic girl from India makes you wonder what would you term this? The way animals are treated in these third world country makes your stomach rench if you ever get a chance to see it in real life.

I see a full cheek snaffle... with little to no contact on the reins. I don't see her beating the horse or riding it rough, sure her seat could use some work, but I certainly wouldn't call her riding "abusive." Many people on this board, even, are much worse than her.
What I am more concerned with is the horse's weight.

If you see her other videos the groom behind her is running behind the underweight lame horse with a stick and basically forcing her to move.she has disabled comments after this was posted on a big horse blog and everyone tried to ask her to feed the horse more.

Does anyone else notice that the horse not only is skinny, but looks gimpy as hell?

It's lame on it's front...I think left leg, although I may be wrong.

I wish the horse would just lambaste that guy chasing him with the whip >.<

I've seen her videos before, and I cry a little bit on the inside every time I see them. She's not using any harsh equipment, but the horse is skinny and lame and in no shape to be ridden at all. I understand it's a third world country, but the girl is clearly fortunate enough to own a horse and she has no problem buying nice riding clothes and equipment, so I don't understand why it's so hard to buy feed for her horse. She obviously feeds herself plenty, so I'm really baffled. The horse standing in the center was emaciated as well. It must be a barn thing, but if that's the case, she needs to demand more sufficient feeding or change barns. I'll live on rice and water before my horses go hungry. There's no excuse for it.

Wow. That video isn't so bad, but watch some of her others. I'm horrified.
