Dramatic scenes took place in Hertfordshire, England. Animal rights activists from an anti-hunting organization filmed a female rider beating a horse. The members of the organization posted the sequence on the web, where it caused horror.

Beating attack on helpless horse

The whole incident took place after a fox hunt. The animal welfare activists of the organization “Hertfordshire Hunt Saboteurs” were on the spot and had to watch how the animal was maltreated in agony. They documented the beating of the horse with the help of a video, which they shared on Twitter. In the post, they linked to the world’s oldest and largest animal welfare organization, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).

In the video, the horse is seen desperately trying to distance itself from the rider. The woman responds to the animal’s backing away with kicks and slaps. The rider’s original goal was to get her horse onto a horse trailer. But it is clear from the horse’s behavior that the animal is afraid of the woman. The situation escalates so that the woman reacts with violence. She kicked the horse’s body, yanked on the reins and repeatedly punched the horse in the face.

RSPCA ist having a look at video sequences

According to the British newspaper Daily Mail, the video sequences would worry the RSPCA. This will now investigate the allegations against the rider along with the evidence. The British Hunting Authority has also been informed of the footage. According to them, the rider is not a member of their hunting associations.
