Horses eviscerated alive for fun.

Horses eviscerated alive for fun. | Horse Sense | Scoop.it
The pain and suffering inflicted on the horses is immense. The fact that this is a "public event" witnessed by all, including children is very harmful to all. THIS EVENT TEACHES THAT VIOLENCE AND CRUELTY IS FUN.
sylvandale's insight:

This is simply intolerable. Please sign the petition (http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Horses_eviscerated_alive_for_fun/?fQLnCab&pv=2) to help bring exposure to this barbaric practice — maybe we can end this disgraceful activity.

 

These hard to watch videos show the cruel practice is indeed real (viewer discretion advised).

There are thousands of species of flies in the United States, and the disruptions they cause to your horse’s normal feeding and pasturing routines can be upsetting.

How to find a family friendly ranch vacation | Dude Ranch Blog

How to find a family friendly ranch vacation | Dude Ranch Blog | Horse Sense | Scoop.it
Tips on choosing the right riding or ranch vacation; some ranches in the picturesque Canadian Rockies.
sylvandale's insight:

A horse riding vacation is all about the riding experience. Getting the right horse for both your skill-level and confidence is key to ensuring a pleasurable riding excursion.

 

At Sylvan Dale we pair each dude vacation guest with their own horse for their entire stay, This lets both the horse and the rider develop an affinity and creates a comfortable riding realtionship.

 

We're just getting the page rolling but check our our Horse of the Month page (http://bit.ly/horse-of-the-month) to learn more about our mounts.
