Support Astrid Appels - keep on reporting!!

1,081 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The journalist Astrid Appels wrote an article about a controversial training method called hyperflexion, otherwise known as Low Deep and Round, or in German Rollkur, used by Dutch dressage rider Anky van Grunsven and her partner Sjef Janssen. These methods are deemed by many riders, trainers, competitors and horselovers as being cruel and believe they should be banned. Now Ms van Grunsven and Mr Janssen are sueing Astrid Appels and her magazine Eurodressage in court. We the undersigned wish to show Astrid Appels our support and believe not only should the freedom of the press upheld when objectively commenting on proven facts, but that we are against the training methods used by not only Ms van Grunsven and Mr Jannsen, but many other riders and trainers.
