Pia Olden’s family held fillets of her deceased stallion, Drifting Speed, inside a freezer after it was put down due to illness. The 19-year-old posted the story via Facebook, including photos of the meal that she had readied with Drifting Speed’s torso. The pic exhibited some meat with a mango and chili topping. She shared: “If I’m going to eat horse meat, it’s going to be my own.” Since, she has been the victim of online recoil, and has even gotten death threats. Speaking to local news outlets, she stated: “Many wrote that I too deserve to be killed for eating my own horse. One wrote that I should lose the right to have animals.” She too informed them that the primary bulk of threats derived from numerous female horse riders. “It’s not better for the meat to be buried and eaten by the worms,” she continued.

Following the backfire, she chose to delete her post, after it was posted to a Facebook group where it garnered thousands of responses. She stresses that she did assume that it would attract negative replies, noting it’s a ‘taboo in the equine community’, however she wasn’t ready for the level of invective she would receive. Nevertheless though, she stands by her decision still. She furthered: “I don’t think they should be able to control what to do. Horse meat is a delicacy, and when the horse had to be killed anyway, I thought it was okay to eat it. It was some of the best meat we have eaten.”
