So I first noticed that it's great that she can join up with you and follow you. Then why are you making her rear by throwing your hands at her? No seriously.. that's a question I would love for you to answer. You seem to be very well balanced on her in the first clip of you jumping her. Your leg slides back over fences though. Really in the first 3 jumping clips pretty solid overall.

Why are you teaching your horse to rear? Everyone is going to ask you. But really, I want to know your reasoning as to why.

After that first rear where you spur your horse on up to camera. Please be nicer on her mouth when you stop. You yank really hard and her head goes straight up to try to get out of the pain.

That "grid". You are going to break your horses leg. She carried your butt through that because you certaintly didn't help her. You sat down way to early over the first one and held her head the whole time. Then your body was so out of balance it was all she could do to get through it safely.

Very cool that she goes in the water. I swim with my horse and it's so much fun.

Your horse looks like she loves you, which is great because she is getting you out of bad situations. One day she's going to hit one of those logs, fall and break her neck and yours. Grids are great to work with, wonderful, but they need to give. Especially when you are learning and the horse is learning. If you want to get the best from your horse, put her into situations where she can thrive, not ones where she has to struggle.

Also, if you want a good critique on your riding, try to get full clips instead of just little tid bits.

Especially with a gesture as common as throwing your hands up in the air. I do that ALL the time.

I agree with the comment about grids. Doing a grid with solid objects is a bad, bad idea.

You're a brave little rider, but you need to ride and train smarter.

This video was amazing! You and your horse are a great pair and I think all the stuff you do with your horse is wonderful. I'm sure if this stuff was REALLY all that dangerous you wouldnt put her through it. Kudos to you!

The only thing I noticed is that sometimes you can see your horses ribs..have you wormed lately? It also could just be my imagination or the camera. Lol

People do some crazy awful things to their horses just because they don't know any better. For example the omak sucide race. These people do it to their horses, and it always injures them. Extreme example I know. In this case it seems like lack of knowledge.

Ok, from an artistic perspective I think that movie was really cool. Very emotional and I love how you pieced it together.

Kids do silly stuff. I had a lil welsh cob/arab who was my buddy and for goodness knows what reason I taught him to rear cuz I thought it was cool..

I love the relationship you have with your horse, she is smart and athletic. Just be careful. As others said that grid with the trees was amazing but pretty unsafe. If your not worried about hurting yourself I hope you would want to keep your amazing horse from harm.

I love the clips of the shadows:). As the others said, be careful with grids and rearing on command. He could fall backward in a rear, or you or someone else could mistakenly give your horse the rear command without meaning to....disastrous consequences. I've always heard that rearing, piaffes and such are better left for the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Safer;). Just make sure you know when enough's enough, and you'll be fine. Love the vid!
