This is important because people are taking these wonderful animals for granted. I have 4 walkers and they do a more natural walk than any other horse I have seen. It took me 3 months to get him to walk it was hard work but it paid off. My horses are not spooky and then run around on a 400 acre property that my parents own. This need to stop now I have seen so much abuse with these animals and some never know anything different please help me find a way to stop this horrible act. I am going to college soon to be an animal cruelty officer and I will do everything I can to stop this. I am 18 years old and not taken very seriously with my passion for stop not only this abuse but the abuse of all gatied horses and every animal that is hurt for some bad reason. From a quote from Ann Dillard "Cruelty is a mystery, and the waste of pain." We have enough suffering in this world why create more please stop this. I also know that there are people who are in these shows that don't know what they are doing wrong because this is how they are raised if you are one of these people please look at what it is doing to these horses and find some way to stop. These horses are suffering they can't speak out for themselves so we to fight and speak out against this inhumane way of horse training. The horse in the picture at the top is one of mine.

      Here is the undercover video of Jackie McConnell and his horrible act of cruelty. he currently has three years of probation and a 75,000 dollar fine. The reason his is lower than most is because the judge accepted his plea bargain.

      This is important to STOP rewarding torture to horses. As long as they are allowed to show and receive awards these people will continue to torture these beautiful equines.
