PRIMUM NON NOCERE   

Artikkel av Stormy May

If riders took the Hippocratic oath required of physicians, the horse world as we know it today would immediately cease to exist. Primum non nocere - do no harm. The best fitting saddle can only achieve one thing, it can evenly distribute the pressure of the rider and saddle on the horse's back. Horse magazines, veterinary journals and texts are filled with articles detailing how to rehabilitate horses from back injuries but the best they can offer in regards to preventing the injuries is to suggest proper saddle fit and proper conditioning of the back muscles. The bigger problem is the amount pressure itself, no matter how well it is distributed, or how well the muscles are conditioned.

There is nothing benevolent about a bit. Even the best fitted, "mildest" bit has only one function, to cause pain. This might seem to be a shocking statement at first glance but that's only because we're used to operating under a collective illusion. Society tells us that we're doing the best for our horses. We give them the best hay, supplements, foot care, veterinary care, we spend thousands of dollars on the best fitted saddles, perfectly designed bits, spurs of just the right length, and even whips with cute little hands on them, to give the horse a gentle "love pat" when it's time to get going.

It's like having an ergonomically correct electric chair or spiked high heels with a tiny toe cushion. It looks absolutely absurd when we see the larger picture.

When we are causing pain to another being for our own pleasure, we can never have the sort of relationship that we're fantasizing about. We have horses who go where we say, when we say, at the gait we specify. We consider them "safe" and "bombproof", or perhaps they "need an advanced rider" or "are a little resistant". We think our horses love it when we spend hours on their backs, jumping obstacles, running around barrels, venturing out to the wide open spaces.

All our training has done is turned the horses into puppets, when we pull the right rein, the head turns right, when we squeeze the barrel, the hind leg steps over. Is there any room to consider the horse's well-being in this scenario? "Of course," we tell ourselves, "if the horse is injured or sick I will get him the best care, I would never push him past his limits, I love him!"

Now let's take a look at this from the larger perspective, if you knew without a doubt that you were causing compromised circulation, leading to pain, numbness, and the destruction of muscle tissue in the horse's back, would you continue to do it? If you knew that the use of bits and all traditional horse training methods (including the popular "natural horsemanship") is based on negative reinforcement, and positive punishment, would you be so sure that your horse enjoys doing what he's told?

What is your ultimate goal? Is it to win at a horse show, to "have fun" by going out on a trail ride with friends? There is no doubt a thrill associated with achieving these goals. History has shown us the best way to achieve these goals, it's called training. Training for these goals creates a victim, that victim is the horse.

If a "horse lover" is able to uncover what is at the root of her love for the horse, she might be surprised. She might discover that all the ribbons, the accolades, and the hours spent doing "fun" activities that compromise the well-being of the horse were not what originally drew her to horses. It is perhaps the most basic human desire that we want to experience love. Do you want to experience yourself as a kind and loving person, respectful of all life, a person who has true partnership with another being? Training will not get you these.

To break through this illusion that we are doing the best for our horses, we must be willing to reevaluate everything that we currently take for granted. We must be willing to see things as they are and to call abuse, abuse and torture, torture rather than cloaking it in euphemisms such as schooling and correction.

In future articles we will take a closer look at areas that we must re-evaluate if we humans are going to evolve in consciousness. We have the potential to evolve from beings who need to control every element of their external environment in order to feel safe, to ones who feel the connection between things and who can feel safety even in the midst of turmoil because they see a larger perspective.

The first step is Primum non nocere - do no harm.
