Undercover video shows horse abuse

 

The horrifying abuse of the TN walking horses captured on new undercover video obtained by the Humane Society of the United was stomach churning. The video was taken undercover by an investigator posing as a stablehand at Whitter Stables of Collierville, Tennessee.  The scenes played out on this video are sickening. They show horses beaten with sticks, whipped, even receiving electrical shocks to their heads. To see these beautiful creatures being tortured is absolutely stomach churning. The Humane Society says the substance being poured on their hooves is a harsh chemical. All to make them prance higher.
