Unsettling Footage Shows Small Pony Being Pulled Through Busy Traffic in Dublin

Horses are an integral part of our culture in Ireland, from racing to show jumping and everything in between.

Despite that, we constantly see horses being mistreated, and today there is another horrific example of that on the streets of Dublin. 

This video, captured in Finglas, shows a small pony being pulled through the streets by a guy on a bike through busy traffic. 

The horse has to keep up while weaving in and out of large buses and tight gaps. This really couldn't be further from a young horse's natural environment and we can only imagine how terrified he must have been.

Thankfully there are wonderful people and charities out there working for horse welfare -like this example of a horse being pulled from the canal.
