The full truth may never come to light.
The German amazone Christine Wels, was sentenced to 21 month’s in jail for animal cruelty 7 years ago. A vet brought charges against her after he discovered scars on many of her horses. The vet took photographs and pressed charges. He also had images from a hidden camera.
On screen it was clear for everyone to see how she would whip her horses until they bled during training exercises.
This week at a riding school near Bonn, the horse she was riding, Rolando, pranced and kicked the 67 year old grand-prix-amazone in the head and killed her.
The video below shows blurred out images of her “training routine”.
Accident or Revenge? Maybe we’ll never know.
