I'm adding my support to that of Grey Horse Matters and Horse Of Course by posting the logo below and the associated text. I, too, hate to see the welfare of our equine athletes sacrificed in the name of sport, vanity, and greed.

"The FEI is holding a closed-door round table meeting on Feb. 9th to discuss the training method known as rollkur, or hyperflexion, which involves pulling and holding the horse's muzzle to his chest. This practice is known to have many negative effects on the horse, both physically and psychologically. Gerd Heuschmann, the lone voice for the horse at this meeting, has my support and appreciation as he presents his case "for the good of the horse" along with petitions and letters saying NO TO ROLLKUR."


  1. Thanks for putting this up. The more we make our voices heard the harder (I think) it is for them to totally ignore us. One step at a time.
