So have we decided if tying a horses front feet together is cruel or not yet?

I can see the point in hobbling a horse so they can only take small steps but just the other day we were walking the corridor verde and saw a few that were so tightly hobbled, the only way they could move was to jump their front feet together. Now that has to be cruel as the strain put on the horse to keep throwing its head up and jumping its pair of tied feet was horrible to watch.

I have hobbled loads of horses before, and twitched them. Sometimes its the only way to do anything with them.

Thats exactly what they are like here, and its horrendous to watch them.

A good thing though, I was passing yesterday and the farmer was in the field and he had untied some of the horses and they were having a good gallop round the field
