Helping the horses

Hello Ladies, an Gents. i'm sharing this with everyone i can think of; i'm not asking personally for people to donate only for your help in getting the word out, i am currently working to fix land in my local area to take horses away from stalls and will be making approaches soon to the chairman of an housing association with wasted fields and land. this is the site(REMOVED ) i would appreciate if you would share with friends and ask they share too.

I use a bit and my horse is stalled overnight. When I showed up at the barn this evening, I walked out to pasture and called her name once and she came running to me. Clearly an abused animal...

so glad you took it personal. you may use a bit; but i'm talking about people who dont know how to ride, and they're not taught how to communicate - and yeah you said pasture so that means your horse isn't stuck in a stall ALL day, theres people that take a horse out of a stall an hour a day, it'll sleep 2 or so, that leaves 20-odd-or-so standing in its own **** and ****, when it gets bored it'll eat the straw where said **** and **** lays. i mean im glad you took it personal like i somewhat attacked you - its NOT ABOUT YOU! its about the horse and giving a better lifestyle to the horse.

You threw a lot of insults in your campaign while at the same time asking for help. Maybe you should try and be more specific before making blanket statements regarding horse care, while at the same time saying you want to "learn" about it.

yeah 'learn' cause if you say out of 10 on how much you know, you say anything more than 6 imma call you a lier. why? because there's always something to learn - sorry what insult? the thing about a bit? sure i stand by it, because at the end of the day someone who has worked a horse that long still feels so insecure they still need the bit i wouldnt want to be taught by them - but again glad you felt so attacked.

Oy, I stayed away from bits for two years with my guy, and now that I use one I find our communication is MUCH better. He's also stalled 12 hours a day and yes, he stands in his poop.... he's in a straight stall. I clean it when I can, wether that's once a day or twice a week and he's no worse for wear. I understand where you're coming from- there are some horses in horrible situations. BUT there are professional ways of going about it.

thats brilliant ya never used one for 2yrs - how come you went back? again i'm not attacking people for it. but the pain from them is very real. so i dont use them - do you pasture your horse? like allow him to herd up with other horses. like stalls arent a woeful thing, but horses need to be able to establish herd dynamics its how they learn naturally to pressure and release, which starts very young with their mothers. and theres a lot of people who take their foals away from the mother cause she bit kicked to correct it. horses know how to be horses but we need to learn to be horses too. - again if anyone feels this is an attack it isn't. i just want what you want, a happier healthier horse.

i think most peoples issues with herd is finding out their horses are lower in the herd; when they see them being pushed or corrected, kicked or bitten - but thats just my opinion
