How can people train horses this way? It is abusive.
photo of Klimke abusing Ahlerich?
You knowthere photo, somewhere of Klimke with Ahlerich schooling at a show when it could be be said that he , Klimke is abusing the horse horribly, horses' mouth is open head up, eyes alarmed, and,he, klimke, appears to be standing up , and balancing on the horses ' mouth; does anyone have that pic? I think it may have the "Ahlerich:" book.
Oh, right! claim the photos are fakes...
Horses do all the things they are doing here because of their generous nature and because we want to. After all, they don't tack themselves up. As stewards of these noble creatures, isn't it our responsibility to make their wellbeing paramount.
Saying these are just "accidents" or a moment in time is a cop out, isn't it?
JS Mom, I think you are just saying these things because he isn't a fancy WB with flashy gaits. It is your prejudice. Who would want a horse like that, anyway? Not me. A donkey is a much more servicable mount.
