    I was wondering if riding horses is cruel. I know horse-pulled carriages are horrible, but what if you have a companion animal horse and you take great care go him/her? Is it bad to take them out for trail rides every so often so they get exercise? Thanks.

    Yeah, whatever usually when someone gets so defensive about a subject especially trying to say a whip tickles a horse usually means they do use the whip… but it doesn’t matter you are arguing over nothing PETA & most of the people on here will say that whips are a form of abuse so if your trying to persuade otherwise your not going too.

    You are assuming that you use the equipment to hit the horse, which we don’t. We literally barely touch the horse, so it is impossible for that to hurt them. I know it wouldn’t hurt me.

    @fit4life is the one saying when she uses the equipment it tickles the horse which I serious doubt that sounds like just an excuse to make it sound like it doesn’t hurt.

    I admit I haven’t read all of the conversation, and maybe you don’t hit horses, but others do. I have a friend that rides horses for sport and although she claims to love her horses, she will hit them if they do something “wrong”. It’s a terrible practice and horses shouldn’t be forced into anything like this.

    Once again, I have not read all three pages of this debate, but that’s just my opinion. I personally have not decided whether riding horses is wrong, but I know that doing it for sport certainly is wrong.

    Yes, hitting a horse is wrong. I think we can all agree on that. Our point is not that hitting them tickles them, it is that we do NOT hit them in the first place with this equipment. I think we have hit a misunderstanding. We are not saying the horse does not feel pain if we hit them, but that they don’t feel pain BECAUSE we DON’T hit them.
