Do you know any horses, personally? They are all actors. Any saddle horse will fill its belly with air when being saddled so the saddle will fit too loose and the rider may take a bad fall, if the trick is allowed to work. We had a lazy work horse, Ted, who tried to act like he was working as hard as the other horse in a two horse harness when he was not carrying his half of the load. We had a paint, Rowdy, that enjoyed playing all kinds of tricks on people and with people. These were just regular work horses and riding horses that were never ever abused! I have lots of similar stories.
The horses, we had and that most owners have, are spoiled and never treated cruelty. They were loved and respected.
Horses enjoy learning tricks for the same reason dogs do; they enjoy the time with people!
There is cruelty to horses and there used to be cruelty to all animals in the movies. Public opinion changed that and there are very strict rules preventing cruelty to all animal actors in this and many other countries. If you know of any animal being used cruelly, report it to the ASPCA. They will act quickly to correct the conditions under which the animal lives.
