Why stop again after the second opening? Is it related to the question of horse abuse on the internet? The person in charge of the project responded that the stop has nothing to do with public opinion, but because of the lack of manpower, the project can only be closed first for security reasons.
Rotating Real Horse left equipment on the left side of the square
People outside the circle dont understand horses, said the person in charge who stopped shortly after the reopening.
After 11:00 a.m. on December 17, people came and went to the entrance of a shopping mall in Shuangliu District, Chengdu. Many old people chose to take their children out for a stroll at noon. The entertainment equipment experience area set up at the entrance of the shopping mall was their usual place.
However, most of them were crowded into the entertainment area on the right side of the square, while the left side of the square was slightly cold, with only a 100-square-metre lawn and a locked rotating machine.
Previously, it was here that the entertainment experience of Rotating Real Horse was launched: the real horse replaced the prop horse and took participants to experience a different experience of the Rotating Trojan Horse.
However, it was not long before the launch of the project was pushed to the forefront of the storm because of horse abuse queries, and the project itself was suspended and reopened by operators after the queries appeared, and was closed twice in recent days.
This period of time is no longer fun, will not open again and wait for specific notice. On the 4th floor of the square and the outdoor venue of the operator, the reporter saw seven real horses. The staff told the reporter that at present, the shop only provides general riding service, and the project of rotating real horses can not be played during this period.
Why is it suspended again after reopening? Mr. Xue, the person in charge, responded that the suspension had nothing to do with public opinion. There are some voices of doubt on the Internet, but we certainly do not have horse abuse. He said that people outside the circle do not understand the horses trajectory and movement characteristics, there are some discussions or different views are normal, but in fact such projects are common in Belgium, the United States, Canada and other countries, so the suspension is not because of what is said online, mainly because there are not enough coaches, safety considerations stop first. When we get busy, the project will start again.
Seven real horses were seen in the outdoor area on the fourth floor of the square.
Some citizens dont buy it: it feels cruel
Whether the Rotating Real Horse project is horse abuse? There are all kinds of voices. The reporter interviewed 20 citizens at random and listened to their views on the project.
Citizen Ms. Zhu: It feels cruel to abuse horses.
When the project started, I saw someone playing, and I felt weird. As an old resident near the square, Ms. Zhu was the first onlooker of the project.
At that time, the horses were semi-fixed on the equipment, and it was cruel to watch them follow the equipment all the time, so neither they nor their friends had tried with their children. In interviews with reporters, a total of eight citizens have similar views. Most of them think that rotating a real horse is against the nature of the horse, so it is cruel.
Citizen Mr. Xu: Its not horse abuse, but horse riding.
At the same time, there are also some citizens who hold opposing views. Mr. Xu, a citizen, is one of them. I dont think its a problem. Horses are used for riding, and they havent done too much work. Its still acceptable to walk a few rounds. There are also some citizens who share the same ideas as Mr. Xu. Most people think that this degree is understandable. Citizen Ms. Liu: It mainly depends on the workload, but some citizens confess that it mainly depends on the workload of horses. I still cant accept it if I keep the horse spinning again and again. Ms. Liu said that the merry-go-round horse was originally a game for children. If you want to get close contact with real horses, you can experience riding normally on the basis of watching equestrian performances. This form still counts.
