We drive up to a public park/staging area/ horse arena and see a horse who has been saddled, and left alone in the round pen with it’s reins tight around the horn of the saddle. A lead rope is clipped to the chin strap so tight the horse can’t lower it’s head. After brushing, saddling up and riding away we see the owners of the horse riding back to the arena. When we returned 2 hours later, the same horse has been retied in the same fashion, but moved. We witnessed other abusive behavior by these horse owners. it’s so sad.
