Born to run but your horses have no access to a pasture? What happened to
race horses being treated like kings? I have to mustangs I use fore
pleasure riding at a small barn and they get better care than these horses.
When people tell me that racing is okay for the horse I should just show
them this video to prove that it is not. You have been training for your
whole life yet you actually think a horse goes to sleep when you leave and
wakes up when you come back? A horse sleeps for two to three hours a day.
So the horses here are awake and bored for 20 hours a day. That one in the
video was shaking his head he was so bored. And don’t try to tell me that
he is playing. My horses play, they run around, kick, bite and buck, that
is playing, not shaking your head because you are going crazy.
