Frustrated Jockey Gets Two-Week Suspension for Punching His Horse (VIDEO)
It’s hard to think of what to say when you see something like this, so let’s just get to the incident. Australian jockey Dylan Caboche has been given a two-week ban from horse racing after this video surfaced that very clearly shows the guy punching his horse in the stomach.
Semantically, it looks like he gives the horse a quick poke, but it’s clear that his intent was to harm the animal. Fist or stick, it’s a terrible, inexplicable act.
Here’s the clip:

While he’s been doled out his punishment, it’s a safe bet that this was neither the first nor last time Dylan’s mistreated his animal. Let’s hope that when he comes back officials continue to keep their eye on this dude.
