    I'd be willing to bet that the horse that attacked Pat didn't come out of the womb breathing fire at people. No matter the cause of behavior like this, there's just no justification for not eliminating that safety hazard, IMO.

    Pulling personal information from other sources and posting it here with the intent to ridicule is not ok. The original discussion does have relevance here, so we have decided to reopen the thread after reviewing, cleaning, and some post removals.

    Letís keep it on topic and follow the rules, or it will permanently closed.

    I have no idea what I said, so that being said, she's an idiot, pics pulled from other sources or not - she says the horse didn't mean to. Oh really?

    OMG i've just watched the video if he were mine i'd have murdered him ! I started reading the thread and then had to look at video to see what the fuss was about and by god that is one dangerous animal and she's lucky to be alive but then like some said you don't know what she's been doing to him. I'm just so shocked I can't believe that video

    I agree that her judgement is mixed up on this, and the hrose kicked intentionally, and she's totally deluding herself if she thinks otherwise.
    Her judgement is off on this, and she probably has a relationship with the horse that is not balanced toward respect from horse to human.

    But,
    There is a difference between saying "She is badly mistaken, or mixed up, or deluded if she believes that horse kicked her accidently" and saying "She's an idiot "

    A horse that aims and delivers? No, accident.
    I personally feel natural selection will settle that love affair. You can't fix stupid, in human or any other animal.

    Maybe the bigger point here is to not assume that just becuase you are wearing a helmet that you are immune to the dangers of horses. I doubt that was how the girl felt , once she strapped on her helmet. But, the way the video has been used to reinforce helmet use is kind of odd when it is such a clear demonstrator of the dangers of foolish horsemanship (riding bareback and jumping on icey/snowy ground) and a likely lack of respect training.

    I think the biggest point here is to assume that when 98% of your posts (I know HF has some funny rules, but IMO anything on the internet is open to anyone - including a FB link you post everywhere and your videos you put on YouTube) that your horse is a raving lunatic or a red devil or whatever other term she used, and then go on to say that this was accident - well, once again, knowing when you're over your head and that enough is enough is probably the best aspect of a well rounded horse person.
    Unfortunately some people that this skill - I blame it on poor evolution and a skewed society.

    I don't think I agree with you Tiny. I get that pulling photos from other sources is not ok with forum rules, and I know the policy here is to keep it nice.

    Maybe a better way of saying, she is an idiot, is to say she is not educated enough? But then she would think that she is, I saw the other photos, so it might not be nice, but I do think she is an idiot. I was one too at that age, and I had no clue I was, when I was told, I fought it, as I wasn't in my mind.

    There are some great benefits to getting older.
