Horse Tripping

Horse tripping is the horrific practice of roping the front or hind legs of a full-on galloping horse and causing it to trip and come crashing to the ground, all for the purposes of entertainment or sport (www.ahdf.org).  THLN successfully advocated for the addition of an amendment to the state Animal Cruelty Statute which effectively bans horse tripping (SB 15, passed 1995).
