Finally! TWH's the way they're supposed to be!

Check out this mare. She's flat shod, has her ears forward, and looks perfectly natural and relaxed. And the movement so much more attractive than padded horses. Notice how the rider is sitting up straight and the saddle is up near her withers where it's supposed to be. I'm not a huge fan of those leverage bits, but when used correctly and in gentle hands, the horses seem comfortable with it.

And another example of a natural Walker, with a well-placed saddle and competent rider. Is this not 100% better than the Big Lick?


This has nothing to do with TW's but,

<<< WTF IS THAT???

Is it a weapon? A 15th century torture device?
Jesus Christ, how screwed up do you have to be to design something like this? What sick bastard would put something like that in a horse's mouth?

My mouth hurts just looking at it.

Bits like this should be illegal.

That's just wrong. Just plain sick.
