The more I see these poor creatures trying to amble along, the more sick to my stomache I get. These people really need to just let the horses go to people who care about their welfare and get into riding giraffes. They jack the whole front of the horse up to an unnatural angle. I am sorry but that can NOT be good for their spines, legs etc... I think I am going to go toss my cookies now after seeing that poor horse. :(

Just a theory I have:
Taking into consideration the name of the horse and the song used for the video, it looks like a prop. I think it's an ankle or leg holster for a handgun, the shape is similar to one I found online.

Because he has been bred for those terrible wobbly joints, he's been trained to use those terrible wobbly weak joints that way, because he has those horrible debilitating weighted pads glued, strapped, nailed onto his front feet and because he has MORE THAN LIKELY been sored with chains or chemicals.......the more I watch these abominations the more I believe that this kind of carry on must be stopped.
So this poor horse has, genetics, training and mechanical influences, temperament (because he seems to tolerate it) and a government who doesn't require more of TWH trainers all going against him....it's a bit like having a slow terminal cancer......slow painful death.
I have heard that TWHs have the most wonderful temperaments.....it's too bad because it hasn't served them any when it comes to these people who cannot see the forest for the trees.......

Try doing that to a horse with a less forgiving nature and it'd be like watching a freking trail wreck in full speed......

Sorry that's my blurb

I personally use very little leg while riding though I'm trying to correct that for more "proper" riding. I mostly use cluck, voice commands and my butt when riding. Next comes reins and last comes legs. Legs are last for me due to two things, really long legs and a need to keep my stirrups extremely long for my knees. Basically my legs really don't contact a horse in the normal areas for commands. Matter of fact if I wear spurs I end up spurring under their belly instead of the sides.

Most walking horse people I have seen ride with long stirups. I for one like the security of a correct stirup for my height.

My knees kill me if I set my stirrups at the proper length. I also have a 36" inseam so my legs really do hang down quite a ways.

I have mentioned plowing twin furrows down the trail with my toes when riding short horses. Every pebble and twig will leap up and hit my toes.
