S & N, thanks, my friend. I've seen documentaries on what they do to train these wonderful horses and it is nothing short of ghastly and so cruel that it is just plain wrong.

OMG i didn't know about this, i watched the vid!
WHY would anyone want to cause a disability like this to these beautiful horses,
what is so attractive about them walking so unnaturally?!?!?
THEY LOOK WRONG!!!
This is mindless TORTURE.
Thank goodness for what the Humane Society is doing!
The people who attend these events must be targeted, they couldn't possibly know about this & still attend!

i'm sickened to the core!

Signed and noted, but was amazed that anyone actually watched the video!!! WHY? Surely the description was bad enough to make you so ANGRY abd UPSET for those poor animals!! Why DO some humans make animals do totally inapproprate things like this anyway? Are they sadistic or just plain STUPID! Grrr!!!!
