He kept refusing and several times instead of encoraging him or nudging him, She smacked him very hard with her crop (he had lines where it had come down). I was taking pics and I got one of him looking terrified and her with the whip coming down. |
Then she is an undeducated rider - she obviously doesn't realize what horses truely see when they are approaching a fence, and that 99% of refusals is rider error.
So since every refusal was her fault, how about we use the crop on her to teach her a lesson? If I were there in person, I guarantee you I woud of done that. Done it before, I'd do it again.
She is uneducated and ignorant - I feel sorry for the horses she rides.
I carry a crop with me when I do CC. Better to have it and not need it than eed it and not have it. When do I use it? When I make an error on Nelson and know he is going to not take the job because of something I did, I'll wave it so he can see it, and that gives him the motivation to get over the fence to cover my ass.
I use it on my leg when doing flat work, I'll smack my leg, not him.
I'm disgusted at this girl - she has no business riding a green OTTB.
