I witnessed an LAPD cop slap a horse in the face more than once at Venice Beach, CA.
I said, "Why did you slap that horse? That's animal abuse! Why did you push the horse and then slap him?"
The cop replied, "He tried to bite me."
I started to record the video of the horses as the cops mounted them. I saw that the horses have bits in their mouths. This is used as a form of control when humans use horses to "work them".
I then knew that the cop was lying to me. He slapped the horse because he is an animal abuser.
Horses can't bite when they have a bit in their mouths.
The cop is an animal abuser.
He admitted to assaulting the horse.

They were riding the horses in the heat without considering how harmful it is to their well being. Just like not everyone can be a police officer, not everyone can take care of an animal properly. The human officers must be required to go through intensive training where they are taught to respect their nonhuman partners, treat them with the dignity they deserve.

Horses do not carry their babies. They must not be forced to carry humans or their belongings. Animals are not vehicles. The Police Department must retire the horses at a sanctuary where they live peacefully. The police must use bicycles or other vehicles.

Abusing an officer-animal must be punished as abusing a human officer would be.

What temperature is too hot for horses?
"As a very general rule, you can gauge if it's too hot to ride by adding the actual temperature to the percent of humidity. For a 90 degree day with 85 percent humidity, the total is 175, not to mention a very bad frizzy hair day. If that number is 140 or above, it's too hot to ride.
On that day of May 6th, 2020 the temperature was 82F with 67% humidity. 82+67=149
