Turn Your Back on Riders That Rollkur!

4 Aug

Rollkur is defined as “flexion of the horse’s neck achieved through aggressive force” which, therefore, should make it inhumane. There have been cases where it has actually caused the horse’s tongue to turn blue and flop around lifelessly due to blood circulation being cut off.

Sign this petition and get this to stop! Quite a few different “equestrians” are using this disgusting technique at the Olympics. I think they should be disqualified!

    Signed. I always thought that the poor horse looked horribly unnatural with it’s head tucked in towards it’s chest like that. Awful way to treat such noble, beautiful creatures.

      But a lot of people these days thinks it looks “so pretty!” Its easy to tell simply by looking at the horse that its uncomfortable. They are beautiful, and mine is my four-legged baby. I hate that some people treat them like they’re machines instead of intelligent, beautiful animals.
