Oh yah, the Koreans too! There is a brutal game Buzkashi that they play in central Asia where they use a dead goat as the ball an ram their horses into cement walls at full speed! And just to think, in the west we are crying about pampered million dollar race horses getting tapped with a safety steering tool 3 times in a minute race It's funny, our ancestors worked with horses all day, every day. They depended on them to eat and live, so they took the best care of them; a dead or hurt horse = you starve. They had no problem with racing and they all used crops or whips. Now a days tho, people are more out of shape, soft and disconnected from the horse ever, but apparently pink haired PETA couch potatoes know everything about horses Dunning Kruger at it's finest.
