I know that it does. How do you know that this is what this poster was intending or if they just wanted honest opinions without clouding it by say who was or wasn't riding?

Unless this is you or your horse, you are not allowed to post this here. Bashing other people is of no benefit to you or other posters. If you have an honest question, ask it, but do not mention names or links to riding just to be bashed.

My thoughts exactly. This thread was created to stir the pot, in my opinion.
Please only request critique of yourself or your horses!

How do any of you know that this isn't the OP in the video?

I hate to say it, but everyone is jumping to conclusions about who is or isn't in the video. Automatically assuming that the op is posting about someone else isn't the "nice" thing to do.


All the op asked is what everyone thought of the horse and rider. It could very well be themselves in it. Obviously the mods must know something if they put this thread back up after taking it down yesterday. Why not give you opinions on the video instead of on whether not the the op is or isn't post a video of them-self?

agreed!!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

If I say that no forum rules are being broken here, does that answer any questions?

And speaking of answering questions, can we get back to the OP?

The horse, to me, looks very uncomfortable, and is just shuffling his feet to try and please his rider, who is very handsy with unclear seat and leg aids.

Agreed. The horse does not look happy at all. The head to the sky and the gaping mouth are not signs of comfort.

What concerns me more is that this was posted on the youtube description.

She's had quite the saga with repeated soundness issues (torn tendons and ligaments) in the past,
If the horse has history of lameness and injury, why would it be ridden in this way? NOT a smart move by the rider.
