    Pepsi needs to do better and tell WHY they are dropping it.

    The only way to stop the abuse is to hit them where it hurts! The pocket book!

    I want anyone who hasn't watched that video to watch it. Made the front page of The Tennessean today.

    How can those people in the stands watch? And then clap? Like it's a lovely thing to behold a horse so encumbered, it's movement so labored.

    I didn't even get to the abuse part. Watching them in the show ring brought tears to my eyes, and not the good kind.

    Thank you for the video. I'm SO glad Nightline did this. But, it seems to point out this is a random thing. Since 52 of 52 horses at the championships tested for illegal substances, doesn't this point how pretty much everyone winning in the high stakes is doing this? It's sort of like saying you caught the one dog fighter breaking the rules.

    I hope this spreads. I'm going to send it to people. I suggest others do the same.
