You Nevada people have way too much time on your hands, idle hands are the work of the devil. Find something better to do with your time. Nevada and Idaho people get a real job and hobby.

Wow. People actually sit around thinking up crap like this - and then inflict their weird-ass cruelty fetish on living beings (EXPENSIVE living beings, no less) for... um, fun. Seriously, folks - do we even belong to the same SPECIES as people who would stage or attend something like this?

And anyone who makes a remark about defending the "freedom" to commit such atrocities is defriended. I mean it.

Normally, I don't do the "OMG, SIGN THIS PETITION!" thing. For this, though, I'll make an exception.

As a rescuer, I have had these horses afterwards. They are so terrified of human contact that in the beginning, they are difficult to even touch. This unbelievable cruelty cannot be allowed in our state. These practices are not to be tolerated in a civilized society. The horse has helped build civilizations and yet is subjected to treatment that has not changed in a hundred years. Please, please.... sign this petition, show your support and help end this suffering.

I don't understand why humans need to hurt animals for fun. Let them trip each other.
