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 understand and respect the opinion of the moderating team. I have come to understand that you guys have a difficult job in trying to keep things nice and respectful, while at the same time trying to allow honesty and the opinions of everyone. I really do understand that.
However, in this thread, I really don't understand what the problem is. The things other people were posting were actually youtube and facebook videos that this girl posted herself. That is all very public and anyone sharing would know that. I think the information is relevant to this thread. This thread started out about riding helmets. However, it evolved to discussing the type of horse that would do this sort of thing and the rider that created such a horse. There have been very harsh things said about this rider. However, if you take a look at the videos she herself posted on youtube and facebook, I think you will find them both alarming and foolish.
There have been points made on all sides of this thread. I feel that while we have been having a debate, we have all been respectful of each other. One thing most of us agree on is that this rider is doing very foolish things and creating very dangerous horses. This girl is putting herself and her horses at risk for a very, very bad outcome. I feel that this is a situation that many of the people on this forum can learn from. There are people of all levels here.
For those reasons, I don't understand why it is not o.k for us to be discussing the videos she herself posted. If it is not okay for us to discuss her youtube videos that she posted, then why is it okay for us to discuss the original video of her getting kicked in the head? It is all relevant information, IMO. There is a lot that people can learn from this thread and those videos. They can all be a huge lesson for anyone on what NOT to do.
