The use of Rollkur has been shown to be extremely damaging to the horse. It causes painful spinal distortions as well as blocking off the throat of horses - shutting off their breathing.

Please take a minute to review the following link and I hope after reading about and viewing the "Blue Tongue Ride" you too will be compelled to sign the petition and bring an end to this torturous method of schooling horses.
