Because horses shouldn't be abused or even be in the hands of an unresponsible and cruel owner. Horses should be free in green pastures. They should be able to have fun and get exercised almost everyday by there loving owners. Not being cramped into slaughter trucks and sent 15 or something odd hours to there death in Mexico. Horses should be just as free as we are. If you think about it, horses really have done a lot for us. I mean if you don't thinking hitting a horse with a stick or not feeding it or doing anything that you think looks cruel isn't?
