Hold on, this could be a rough ride.
Roped, tied up, thrown down (some like to call it laying them down… but) mounted and ridden hard. Some call this colt starting, but if it was a woman instead of a horse, we’d want the perpetrator in prison.
Now, I don’t have anything against laying a horse down. But, not in a manner when the horse doesn’t have anything to say about it, such as pulling their legs out from under them with ropes. Seems quite a few trainers out there think it’s a short cut to making the horse submit. And truth be told, it is. But, the results are just as bad as they would be for a person treated the same way as to how that horse feels about the person that did it to them. Fear. There is no trust from a safety point of view, but they do trust that they’ll be put in that position again if…
It’s always said that this crime is a crime of violence. What do you have to say? Where understanding and communication end, violence begins. And, “Frustration begins when knowledge ends.”
