Bad horse owner?

Is this really the sort of thing you do to a horse that bucks you off?
Watch till the end!
Btw I've never posted a video so just say if it don't work and how to do it properly!
Thanks for looking xP

I think it's moronic. By the time she started whupping on him the horse's mind was already on something else. If she really wants to whack him as a response, she should at least just smack him with her own hand or something right away, because that wasn't fast enough for him to make the connection..

But I think the loudest thing crying out to me is that IT DIDN'T WORK. You can see clearly from the horse's expression that it had happened before and will happen again. Time to find a new approach!

She certainly isn't a very good rider. First of all, if her position was more solid she probably wouldn't have fallen off in the first place(she is pinching her knees, which sends her falling onto her perching hands as she loses her legs and thus becomes unbalanced) and could get him moving in a circle after the buck. For many cases, you can feel a buck coming and can prevent it before it even happens. We also cannot tell from this video if he is having some sort of discomfort causing the bucking, something a good rider would look into.

Anyways, after she fell off, she waited about 4-5 seconds before she did anything. Any sort of correction has to happen within 4 seconds are at the most, and I personally believe it should be no longer than 1-2 seconds. It was clear from the horse's expression that he was focused on something else and thus could not have realized he was being 'punished' for bucking.

She was laughing. That is pretty much one of the stupidest things you can do when you correct a serious behavior, regardless of the correction. A correction should be done with a calm, serious, and authoritative demeanor that is neither happy nor angry. Whapping at his neck with a crop is NOT going to correct bucking either. If anything, it's just making him lose more trust and respect. In the end, he got what he wanted anyways: he escaped. IMO that horse is pretty level minded, if that horse wasn't as good as it was it could have bitten her, kicked her etc.

I was going to say the same thing. Her riding epically fails if she can't sit her way through that one.

I don't really understand why someone would post that kind of video on youtube in the first place?

If I ever caught a child of mine treating a horse that way(if you watch a few more of her videos you will see what I am talking about a little better, especially her "free lunging" one, that gets me a little steamed...) She would lose that poor horse in a heartbeat. Not only does she not know how to sit a horse, but jerks on his mouth and constantly jabs him with her heels. Then she reinforces the horses want to get away with her by whacking him with a crop and laughs about it. Screams spoiled little brat with no respect for the animal and no training in how to act around it.

^^ totally agree. I just went and watched the free lunging video..man, what an idiot!
And the poor horse seems like a very nice, patient guy in general..but I bet she thinks she has it so hard with him. So sad that so little can be done about that sort of thing.

And Bek, that's exactly what I was wondering! Is she proud of this or something?

It is the image at :26 that makes it worse, she seems to enjoy the thought of punishing him, with that big poo eating grin of hers...She needs a swift kick in the rump.
