I can only imagine what goes on at home if they are willing to do THIS out in public!!!  It disgusts me!  It disgusts me even more the people that allow their horses to be abused this way!  SHAME ON THEM!


I've learned that no amount of money can substitute for class.

Of course it's worse at home. I learned to train and stand up halter horses years ago from attending Mike Neal clinics. Those methods will only get you so far. To get the horse to tighten every muscle in his body you have to make him terrified.

This is why people like myself won't buy halter horses to be used in performance.  I know it's not all trainers, but how is one to know for sure......

It's something that stays with them. I have a lovely mare that has been super for my daughter to learn on, but heaven help you if there's a plastic bag on the floor as you come into the barn.

I think this was one of the videos from 2015 that lead to USEF stepping in about the shanking. It's hard to watch and I've seen people defending it. :( I'm worried things are just going to get worse with all the talk about "making halter exciting again".

Unbelievable that people would defend this abuse of these poor horses. They need to get out of horses if they think that is acceptable.

You have to wonder how they treat their children.


One definition of insanity is repeating something over and over, and expecting different results.

I couldn't even watch it past seeing Schall going after that poor baby for NOTHING!!  I've seen this stuff in person too.  I can barely watch halter anymore.  My daughter refuses to watch it.  Now thats not to say I've not seen abuse u/s.  I've sadly seen plenty of that too.

 

Good point someone said why we can't get more people to our breed.

The last time I went to Scottsdale my husband had to sit on me to keep me from going over the wall at Rodolfo Guzzo.  I wouldn't let him touch one of mine.  And if he dared to ball his fist at me?  My husband and 10 more twice his size wouldn't have been able to hold me back.  A$$HOLE!  And yet, people keep on paying.  And like TripleH says, I've seen MUCH MUCH worse.  Glad I'm out of it.  So sad for the horses but you can only do so much when people refuse to see.
