A photo of two stallion horses fight for the female (mare) horse standing beside the man. Organized horse fighting is a blood sport between two stallions which is organized for human spectators. Though combat between horses naturally occurs in the wild, organized horse fighting is a staged event done for purposes of betting or entertainment.[1] Horse fights often occur in a fenced ring. Two stallions and a mare in heat are brought into the ring by human handlers. The mare is then removed, but kept in the vicinity so that her scent lingers; in some horse fights she is tethered to a pole at the center of the ring. At this point the stallions will often spontaneously attack each other; those that do not are whipped or startled with loud noises to provoke them into a frenzy. Horse fights may be staged in rounds, or occur as one-off bouts, and often result in significant injuries or death for all stallions involved.[2] Horse fights may last between 15 minutes to three hours and have been criticized for their brutality and lethality, however, organizers have claimed that the death of horses in organized horse fighting is rare or non-existent.[3][4] Organized horse fighting is a traditional observance of Chinese New Year among the Miao people that has occurred for more than 500 years.[1] Though illegal, it is also widely practiced in the Philippines where, as of 2008, approximately 1,000 horses were being bred annually for horse fights.[5] Organized horse fighting has also been recorded in Thailand, in South Korea's Jeju Province, on Muna Island in Indonesia, and among medieval Norse settlers in Iceland.
