#dontbeafruit is an awareness campaign, to hopefully educate people about the dangers of doing risky “tricks” with their horses.
The #dontbeafruit campaign started because one girl on Instagram posted a photo of her lying down and putting the horse’s hoof on her stomach. People have been videoing themselves demonstrating what can potentially happen to your organs if the horse puts their full weight on you by using fruit instead of people. They are unnecessarily risking their lives doing dangerous “tricks” to prove they trust their horse and that they have a bond.
There’s been other photos that have surfaced because of this, including lying underneath the horse’s legs, and sitting down and putting the horse’s hoof on your head. Most of the time these horses are unrestrained and could move or spook at any time.
Mostly, young teenage girls are the ones doing this stuff, usually they have thousands of young impressionable followers and they don’t realise that they have a responsibility to be a good, sensible role model to these people. Hopefully with #dontbeafruit these people will realise just how irresponsible they are being, and realise that there are other, safer ways to prove your partnership with your horse.
That’s actually a fantastic explanation of it
