Yes. Yes you can. And okay actually I was thinking to myself “no one actually supports rollkur right? I mean it’s so obviously terrible I can’t imagine.” But haha I was wrong. I’ll report as well and ask all my followers to also report.

Yes.please. 

Yes.please. 

ACK!!  Such a lovely and clearly patient pony. Look at this leaning back, braced child using waaaaayyyy to much hand with her leg in front of her.  No child should have a flash (or spurs). Pony cannot get away from that hand with it’s mouth clamped shut. This is the grooming of another harsh badly balanced rider.

Nope, not cute. What does this teach a child?   Look at her poor ponies mouth and expression. Why is winning exalted above all else?

Have you heard about NETHERLANDS BAN ON STABLING HORSES?

"In a public ordnance dated 5 June 2014, published in “Het Staatsblad van het Koninkrijk de Nederlanden” issue 210, year 2014, is a clearly defined ban on the keeping of horse in stables or boxes.

Specifically:

Article 1.6 The Keeping of Animals

1. An animal’s freedom of movement may not be restricted in such a way that the animal experiences unnecessary suffering or injury.
2. An animal must be provided with adequate space for its physiological and ethological requirements.

Article 1.8 Housing

1. A building where animals are kept, must provide adequate light and darkness to fulfil the ethological and physiological requirements of the animal.

In order to fulfil its ethological and physiological requirements, a horse cannot be kept in a box or stable. Lighting and darkness in stables and boxes and the space they offer is inadequate for the requirements of the horse.”

I don’t have the most reliable source regarding this matter: HERE

I found this floating around Pinterest. Lots of repins and lots of laughing about “the horses face LOL”. Really?  What is wrong with us that we joke about the pain of another creature? We ask our horses to do our bidding for own selfish goals and pleasure and then do this to them?…And people find it funny. All is see is pain and it does not take a rider/trainer to see that. Shame on those so insensitive and blind to suffering.

After a very long time in my past as a rider and trainer in the Hunter/Jumper world I have a thing or two to say about these hands. Enough with the flat hands. You have to give and take so subtly and stay so soft while jumping (although many, many do not do this) you just cannot do that with such flat hands and cocked wrists. It is the fashion I know but not good for your horse’s mouth this needs to change. I also would like to see more angle in the hips which would bring her seat down and her legs under her and make so she cannot hang on her horses mouth. I am happy to see no spurs.

Stuff like this is why I do not ever believe Parelli “natural” horsemanship is ok. This is Linda Parelli supposedly lunging a horse- what what the hell kinds of cues is she giving?? She gets it’s attention not by gently bringing him to her, but by taking the horse completely by surprise and yanking it’s head! Then the rope flings back and forth, which does nothing but confuse the horse as to which way you want it to go! In the second gif, she is looking at the horse’s hindquarters, telling it to stop, while whipping at it to go forward! And then she is trying to get the horse to stay away from her by slapping at it’s face/nose while pulling it’s head back towards her, then slapping at it again! What is this even accomplishing besides upsetting and confusing the horse?

I have seen this video, and did you know this is the process, the before, not the result? This horse was practically running over people and this may not be the prettiest thing to watch, but it is effective. Please don’t judge what you’ve never tried

No. There simply is no excuse for this. This horse was not acting up. At the most, he was a bit distracted. So you attract his attention, not with pain and fear, but by getting him to use his brain.

Parelli sucks, sorry not sorry.

Let’s just point out that this horse was
blind in one eye. Yup.

Please, educate yourselves before you judge… And look up her reaction video.  She discusses what has happened…

LOL her reaction video was crap too.  All she does is list a whole bunch of excuses.  NOTHING can justify what she did.  Anyone buying into her crap about “the horse was dangerous” needs to re-think how horses behave in different situations.
For anyone else interested, Pat and Linda make excuses in this video HERE
