One of the trickiest parts of horse ownership is attempting to understand a horse’s behavior. As you spend more time with them, you see that their conduct is quite unpredictable. Although horses are very beloved by people, they may also be aggressive and deadly. Horse people find it difficult to understand how violence may result from a multitude of factors.
For instance, you could be surprised to find that a horse is responding violently because of a suspected illness because this is not what you would anticipate. Lack of training might result in further problems. Many artists put a lot of stress on their horses in order to perform at their best in front of an audience, and occasionally they forget that horses need to relax. Extreme endurance is sometimes beneficial, but it shouldn’t be permitted since it will undermine your goal of making your audience happy, which is the most important thing you want to achieve.
At the “Big Lick” North Carolina Championship Horse Show, a Tennessee walking horse competing in the Amateur Specialty Gelding Class flung his rider to the ground. This event took place at the Western NC Agricultural Center in Asheville, North Carolina. Some onlookers said that the “Big Lick” Tennessee walking horse’s rider was thrown because of abuse and torture.
The forced deformity that these Big Lick show horses endure during their forced training is not something that horses’ legs and hooves were intended to withstand. Nobody who owns, trains, or rides a horse should consent to making it move in this unattractive, unnatural way. People who have been brainwashed are abusing horses, and we must do all in our power to spread awareness.
The discomfort was too much for this horse to take, hence his reaction. I genuinely hope that this movie serves as a lesson to all riders because if they don’t properly care for their horses, the same thing might happen to them.
