For those wondering about why horsepeople are mad at Roy Moore:
According to friends of mine who own and ride horses and know their stuff, three things:
1. The horse was too small. Made it easier for him to get on and off, but it means he was too heavy.
2. He doesn’t know how to ride all that way, which is harder on the horse
3. The horse was clearly spooked by the crowds and the camera flashes, and any experienced person would have understood that and been able to handle the horse better. Moore apparently just hauled back on the reins in a way you should never do, essentially hurting the horse.
