And I should fucking think so too, it's a disgrace this is still allowed.

These pictures are just awful, I don't think I've ever seen a flash & noseband pulled so tightly. I can't begin to imagine how much pain the poor horse is in, and I'm glad I can't see the alleged damage from his spurs.

Shame on him, his grooms, the judges, the stewards and the Danish Equestrian Federation.

It's a sad day when sponsors lead the way for welfare in dressage.

Makes me sick and quite frankly despair.

He should be banned from competition, and so should anybody else that treats a horse like that. He blames the equipment... really??? Even if he doesn't tack up himself, doesn't he look at his horse's face before getting on? It's disgusting.
