Today I have to thank Fugly Horse of the Day for bringing attention to the following video of a Danish horse trainer that is currently under investigation by the local police and animal welfare groups. Here is a very graphic video of the "trainer" beating and abusing the horses that are sent to her to "train". I warn you the video is not for the faint of heart. The case of this trainer abusing horses is not the first time. Here is a video of a previous animal abuse case against her. That video shows blood dripping from the mouth of the horse she is "training" as she rides it.
On another note, close to my heart is the incidents of horse abandonment. The number of horses being abandoned all over the world is rising at an alarming rate. Those of us located in the USA are well aware of the numbers in the USA, but here is a sad tale of a once famous horse in Ireland found wandering the marshlands near Belfast near death. The article goes on to state that Ireland is having a growing problem with horse abandonment.
