    I always think when this kind of thing comes up, what if she had posted as an alter?

    Anyway, how many surreptitious videos have we seen of clinicians doing this kind of thing, and people are still giving these charlatans money? Too many.

    New horse owners are especially vulnerable...

    It's clear this discussion isn't even about the horse, or the owner, at this point.

    I am a total Elisa Wallace fan now. That girl can walk the walk!

    The helmet cam is great, I love her rides, and it's terrific she's into training the mustangs.

    She's an asset to the sport.

    She said it already, he goes crazy in a stall and loves to be free and gallop. He would never be able to do that again -- even if he got rehabbed, the odds of another injury would be very high.

    The other side of that argument is to euthanize an animal because it has ceased to be useful to you, which is also immoral in my opinion. Just because a horse can't do one job any more does not mean...

    From what little we know, he's not going to be a lower level packer or fun pasture buddy. So, she made the tough call to end his current and future suffering.

    However, I think maybe all the...

    I enjoyed seeing the not-so-great rides early on, too -- with KOC commenting, was quite a clinic. Commenting was great, hope they keep that up. Later on others weren't so vocal in their...

    Another factor may be that she has to leave him here, and would be concerned that he would be put back in work or end up starved in a field somewhere, as we all do when selling a horse with issues. ...

    It's his second injury to this suspensory, so it may be in tatters and indeed may not respond to normal treatment or rehab, and not fair to the horse.

    Still, it's quite a black mark for the sport,...

    I hope they go out of business, too, but how many people go on the internet and research boarding or training barns? Not enough, probably.

    Let's just hope someone buys the pony, at least.

    Anything can happen in sport, that's for sure.

    Karen is back but much more subdued in her commentary, too bad. These guys are her peers and I imagine she can't say much of a critical nature.
