Horse training method draws criticism and anger

, , 14 Comments


AN IOWA HORSE TRAINER IS DENYING WHAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE SAYING ON SOCIAL MEDIA…THAT IMAGES, BEING PASSED AROUND, SHOW AN ANIMAL BEING ABUSED. AS MIKE MCKNIGHT EXPLAINS — IN A STORY YOU’LL ONLY SEE ON SIX — AN EXPERT EXAMINED THE PICTURES — AND THE HORSE — THEN GAVE THE TRAINER AN EARFUL. FOR ANIMAL RESCUER GENEA STOOPS, PICTURES SEEN BY THOUSANDS TELL ONE WORD. GENEA STOOPS/HOOVES & PAWS RESCUE SAID,”WHEN I FIRST SAW IT I WAS HORRIFIED.” A HORSE LYING DOWN WITH ROPE AROUND ITS LEGS BEING HOSED DOWN — THEN COVERED WITH A TARP AND SPRAYED AGAIN IN PHOTOS POSTED ON FACEBOOK BY 29 YEAR OLD TRAINER LOGAN ALLEN UNDER THE HEADLINE “BAD BOY.” LOGAN ALLEN/HORSE OWNER & TRAINER SAID, “IT GOT TWISTED AND DISTORTED AND IT’S NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.” ALLEN BROUGHT PRICKLY PEAR TO HOOVES AND PAWS RESCUE TO SHOW THAT THE THREE YEAR OLD IS ALIVE BECAUSE THE PHOTO OF ITS TONGUE GAVE THE IMPRESSION OTHERWISE. LOGAN ALLEN SAYS, “THE PICTURE WITH HIS TONGUE OUT THE HORSE IS LICKING HIS LIPS.” BUT STOOPS WON’T BITE HER TONGUE ABOUT THE TRAINING METHOD. GENEA STOOPS/HOOVES & PAWS RESCUE SAYS, “IT’S NOT A TECHNIQUE I WOULD EVER EVEN CONSIDER USING OKAY. BECAUSE LATER ON THIS HORSE IS GOING TO REMEMBER THAT.” LOGAN ALLEN SAYS, “WELL I WILL ACCEPT YOUR HELP IN TRAINING HORSES.” NEVER AGAIN USING A HOSE METHOD TO CALM HIS HORSES FEAR OF WATER LOGAN ALLEN SAYS, “I WAS NOT HURTING THE HORSE, I WAS NOT WATER DROWNING HIM, OR WATER BOARDING HIM. THE HORSES FACE WAS NEVER WET.” LOGAN WANTED TO BRING PRICKLY PEAR HERE TO HOOVES AND PAWS TO SHOW THAT THE HORSE IS OK. BUT HE’S BEN CONCERNED ABOUT HIS HEALTH AND SAFETY.” LOGAN ALLEN SAYS, “THERE HAVE BEEN DEATH THREATS, PEOPLE WANT TO HUNT ME DOWN.” THE RESCUE CAN’T KEEP THE HORSE WITHOUT A COURT ORDER OR THE OWNER SURRENDERS HIM WHICH ALLEN DOESN’T WANT TO DO. LOGAN ALLEN SAYS, “I LOVE HORSE AND COWS MORE THAN ANYBODY OUT THERE AND THE LAST THING I WANT TO TRY TO DO IS HURT ONE.” SINCE PHOTOS HAVE GONE VIRAL IT’LL BE HARD FOR ALLEN AND PRICKLY PAIR TO RIDE OFF INTO THE SUNSET AND LEAVE THE CONTROVERSY BEHIND. IN MILLS COUNTY MIKE MCKNIGHT WOWT6 NEWS THE MILLS COUNTY SHERIFF SAYS HIS DEPUTY IS INVESTIGATING THIS. THE HORSE TRAINER SAYS PICTURES SHOWING OTHER ACTS OF ANIMAL CRUELTY ONCE POSTED ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE ARE SHARED PHOTOS AND DON’T INVOLVE HIM IN ANY WAY.

    This guy is a complete dick. You don’t train horses like this, you don’t put a tarp on a horse and spray water on them, ever. This guy needs a lesson. I’m gonna tie him down and do this to him. This is not training me thing at all. He needs to learn how to actually trail one. Probably abuses this horse all the time. This dick needs to be arrested, complete animal abuse, not okay what so every

    He should go through the same as that poor horse >. < but with boiling hot water spilled on him. He deserves to burn.

    The lady Didnt seem to know horses. She acted like a predator and the horse moved away from her.
