Far too often, when contests for money or prizes are mixed with animals, the animals suffer for it. I’m not saying it happens across the board, but it does happen.
We need serious oversight in cases like this.
In the case of the following video, we find horses being abused to make them walk with a high step with their front legs, in Tennessee walking horse shows. I don’t get it.
Once again, the Humane Society of the United States led the charge to save these horses. The practice of applying chemicals to the lower legs of these horses is called “soring.” Anyone caught doing this should be in prison as soon as possible.
