All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize.
This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.
Golden Rule of Horsemanship
Here is a golden rule, a horseman should live up to;
The priceless knowledge in horsemanship.
Remember each time you approach a horse,
A man of kindness to his horse is kind,
A brutal action is a brutal mind.
Think, the Lord made thee, made the brute.
He who gave thee speech and reason, formed him also mute,
He can't complain;
But our good God has all-seeing eyes,
So behold thy cruelty.
He hears the cries of the mute.
He was created thy servant, not thy drudge.
Remember, his creator is thy Judge.
