photographing and learning about wildlife
Well i post it in the PET category and this page isn't only for for animals in the wild, if you don't want to see this pic because you have a different perspective about the breeding of the horse. you are free to just leave and see another photos. I insist this practice isn't animal abuse, just a form to train the animals, used only in shorts periods of time.
They are different opinions, as I said these animals are healthy and have no problem. ofcourse, its use has cosmetic purposes but is performed by staff who care these animals all day and would not do anything to harm the animal as this specimen for example has a high economic and sentimental value to its owner.
this horse was very happy and healthy, the thing in her mouth isn't the same thing that we use to stop the horse, this is different in the pic you can see two little chains adapted to their mouth without any pain, used to correct
the position of the head and never we have any problem with this system. the owner of this horse is a great veterinary and i can swear you, these animals are treated with love.
