A Discussion with an american freind recently raised an issue that has got me thinking. In America the "killer" market for horses has just shut down. This has inturn caused an influx of low quality horses onto the ridden/breeding market. This has gone on to create a further two problems one being that there are now more people with problem horses and the second is that the quality horses are being devalued. My thought was that if the practice of "dogging" horses was more readily accepted in Australia would we inturn end up with less problem horses and a better return for our quality horses instead of recycling or "saving" these problem horse.
