I’ve put my telephone number on Twitter, asking people who have any information about these individuals to come forward so that the police can arrest them. I was appalled when I saw the video. I can’t understand how anyone can treat a horse – or any other animal – with such cruelty.
I have already contacted a lawyer in order to launch legal proceedings against these people. All I want is for them to be sent to prison so that they understand the gravity of their actions and, above all, serve as a warning for others.
This act is even more incomprehensible given that the horse, especially the pure-bred Arabian, is a very respected and pampered animal here. This animal played a major role in the unification of Saudi Arabia [King Abdulaziz, Saudi Arabia’s first monach, and his men criss-crossed the country on the back of this type of horse as they fought to unite the country at the beginning of the 20th century].
