  1. Cancel!!! Not only have you abused the kindest breed ever, but you condone your redneck Kentucky way! Grow up you fools! Are you not capable of compassion and wisdom. It is not about your freaking gun rights! Dumbos!!!!


  2. Never mind the covid!! Any human that would deliberately allow their horse to be tortured by this barbaric treatment needs to be imprisoned for severe animal abuse! The agony and disfigurement and injuries are beyond all understanding! You bunch of gutless, black hearted evil , abusers need prison terms of no less than 20 years at hard labor wearing 30 lb boots nailed to your feet!

  4. The Big Lick is Not
    An Equestrian Event
    Its torture of Magnificent
    Horses for stupidity
    Burning the frogs of
    Horses feet injuring them
    Putting Acid or even
    Hot sauce to cause pain
    To make the Horse
    Step more exaggerated
    Ridiculous 💰.
    To anyone knowing
    Horses this
    Does damage to the
    Back , Legs, and the
    General Conformation
    If that Show Horse
    End the Chain Weighted
    Boot as well
    This Is Not Entertainment

    This is not Horsemanship
