    Just wait, before you know it she will be wearing a white helmet instead.

    I can't say anything about teaching a horse to rear... I was guilty of teaching my Andalusian x Walker to... Then again I was the only one who knew her cue and she never went above knee level in height.

    No wonder the horse clocked her in the head. Sounds like her horse world is full of rainbows and butterflies and her ponies are her best-est friends *snort*.

    No, these are complete rears...full upright...often with her on their backs...one day one of them is going to lose footing and go over on her.

    I'm amused at some of the comments on her pictures that are extremely favorable to her, such as ones of her laying on his neck, legs completely extended, helmetless and bridleless and they're telling her what excellent form she has. I think I missed the memo where that was a "good" thing...

    I have no words for this.

    You used the correct word...idiocy! Didn't know that that type of riding was scored in any equestion sport? Is there a sport I am not familar with?

    I'd sure like to know where her mother is in all of this. If a horse intentionally kicked my daughter like that, I'd kill it. This girl is an idiot and there are certainly things that led up to this. However, I could never trust the horse again.

    That makes me think of a story I read on this forum about a woman who was kicked to death in her trailer by her own horse. The horse was known to kick. It's not something I want to chance myself, much less with one of my daughters.

    Ummm, yeah.. does she think that falling off is funny? Cause that's what it looks like. Another one of the clips from the same video of her getting kicked, she fell off and he lashed out at her and missed.
    In the comments on the rearing pictures on FB, it sounded like the rear was because she hadn't 'worked him properly' for 2 months so that is how he is. Wow! My horse hasn't been 'worked properly' since last May. I consider him a bit of a jerk, I hopped on bareback at Easter weekend. We kept it to a walk, but the only thing he did was be a bit pushy with his bit (snaffle). If he even thought of pulling a rear, I'd be on the ground working the snot out of him.

    Yep, they have an incredible bond. Somehow it involves her head and his hoof. A weird way to bond IMO.

    A good example of why you should wear a helmet?
    More like, a good example of why you should not be riding at all.

    Sorry to say, I haven't worn a helmet in eight years and have had no incidents, and this doesn't encourage me to wear one yet. HOWEVER, this does encourage me to seek advice from a professional when I have problems with my horse, and to not do cheap tricks for the sake of ego.

    I'm sorry, but snow + bareback + poor training = what do you think was going to happen?

    Glad she was wearing a helmet. Sad her brain is already damaged.

    I have a bossy, pushy mare that had been a "lawn ornament" for 8 years, after a week of working on some refresher ground work, I hopped on her back, got about 2 bucks hops and she did fine....not worked properly in 2 months caused rearing....I scream BS!!
