For some reason, the natural beauty of horses is not good enough to many people. Sadly, horses are abused in racing all the time.

For example, American Pharoah was
The 2013 Brakke survey revealed that 85 percent of respondents are recreational horse owners, compared with 86 percent in 2009. More noticeable, in 2013 30 percent of horse owners were participants in competitive horse events, a 6 percentage point decline from 2009. With so many people using and having horses for their recreational purposes, the amount of illness/disorders is overwhelming. One of the foremost disorders in equine is lameness.

The Government Document states, “The term ‘sore’ when used to describe a horse means that- an irritating or blistering agent has been applied, internally or externally, by a person to any limb of a horse.” This shows one of the definitions created by the Government for this topic. This definition can also be elaborated to say, “-any burn, cut, or laceration has been inflicted by a person on any limb of a horse.” This is what many people think the definition of “soring”. However, that is not the only thing considered soring. There is even more defining soring. As stated by the GPO, “-any tack, nail, screw, or chemical agent has been injected by a person on any limb of a horse, or any other substance or device has been used by a person on any limb of a horse or a person has engaged in a practice involving a horse, and, as a result of such application, infliction, injection, use, or practice, such horse suffers, or can reasonably be expected to suffer.” This shows that there is more to the rules than people think and that one step to stopping this horrible abuse is to inform people.
"The Wild Horses of Assateague Island" & "Wild Ponies of Chincoteague" & "In Thunder and Rain, Chincoteague Ponies Make Annual Swim" Opener In this poem, I am going to show you more about the ponies by the illustrations. For example, in "The Wild Horses of Assateague Island" the illustration of the herd of horses on the beach shows that the horses were survivors of a shipwreck off the Virginia Coast. Another example in "Wild Ponies of Chincoteague" the illustration of the people on the boats and the horses in the water shows that the people who were actually the 'Saltwater Cowboys ' were rounding up the horses who were actually not horses and were ponies. Another example in "Wild Ponies of Chincoteague" the illustration of the people watching the ponies while the ponies were walking shows that the ponies were walking to go somewhere. Also in the passage, it says the ponies were being held in the corral for auction so the ponies were clearly going to the corral where they were being held.
3).That was pretty brutal but on a side note the empire of Genghis Khan was more than double the size of Alexander the Greats land. The next closest to how much land Genghis had taken was Alexander the Great. In battle they tended to be a little harsh, like if a group small group that is smaller than 10 do something and the others in that group of 10 don’t join in then the group would all be killed (Doc. 2).

As most of U.S. prepares for cold temperatures and lots of snow and ice, the majority of the people are probably taking pleasure in the fact that it means that they could bundle up and go sledding with their close ones. Sadly, many of them are most likely to be hospitalized and severely hurt in a harmful way. In a similar matter, Source A presents the following: “Nationwide, sledding injuries sent nearly 230,000 kids to emergency rooms between 1997 and 2007.” This astonishing fact completely real because of lack of experience, lack of safety, and lack of awareness. If people focused on what they were doing, they wouldn’t have to endure all of the misery.

Horses Heart Rate Introduction This paper is about how a horse’s heart rate, along with the riders, changes from riding bareback to riding in a saddle. Riding a horse for some people is a hobby, but for others it 's their life. According to Lisa Rask, 2011-2015 “Riding was started around 4,200 BC when wild horses were often used as a source of food before people learned to train and bond with them.” Once they learned to ride horses they found out that it was a much faster way of getting around rather than just walking everywhere. They also discovered that it was much easier to keep up with large herds of animals such as cows and other herds of horses. They also figured out that it was much easier to hunt big game animals such as buffalo, elk and moose.
