This is Ghostly Blue aka “Casper” and Melina LaBonte at the canter. If you click through the pictures quickly it looks like they are in motion!
First off all let me point out that this horse has it’s front legs tied together. (If you look closely you can see a string/rope attached to whatever is on the fetlocks.) The we have the ‘tail wrap’ which looks like it’s a a tail setting device used to forcibly set a horse’s tail higher. This is used with gaited horses, so I wouldn’t be surprised if that is what it’s used for here… I also have problems with the double bit with long shanks which is extremely harsh on the horse’s mouth especially since the rider has constant pressure on it.
I’m just appalled at this…
