Saw a bit on CTV about a jockey headbutting his somewhat resless horse after it had thrown him...much consternation in England, where it happened, about cruelty to animals. But - when you watch horseracing, you see the jockeys flailing away with whips going down the finishing stretch, and if the poor horse has the misfortune to stumble/fall and break a leg, it stands a fairly good chance of ending up in the glue factory...so why all of the concern about animal cruelty???

Maybe the jockey is just a wannabe footballer?

Does that make the jockey a butthead?

I've been around a few stables and seen handlers punch their horses to get their attention. When it happens, none of the other handlers even bat an eye. A horse is a pretty big and tough animal after all........ and the head butt wasn't that bad.
