Competitive Dressage is demonized for it's use of Rollkur and rightly so but it is not the only discipline that uses this abusive technique. This picture of a jumper rider (who?) shared from the German group "Deine Stimme Gegen Rollkur" photos taken of a Canadian rider at this year's CHIO in Aachen Germany.
Please do NOT use this bit on your horse!!!! It is called a thorn bit and is incredibly painful for your horse. It will often result in bleeding, and dental damage. This makes me sick to my stomach, how can horses do there best at what we ask them to do with all this abusive bullying? Please comment if you think this is pure abuse!!
how does anyone not see this as abuse? the horse is in roullkur,lathering,sweating,foaming at the mouth,and has 2 bits in its mouth.the rider is pulling the reins hard,using spurs,and does not care that his horse is overworking!!
