That was a shame. That horse had no training, no confidence, and no leadership. Part of me hopes that those people get hurt for being so stupid. It could have been much worse, for horse and human. Some people are much harder on horses to get them into harness, but just because they didn't beat their horse into submission [at least not on camera] doesn't mean this method of training is in any way just or even effective for that matter.
Words can not even express how I feel about people like that. Plus it isn't even the horse's fault; if that horse was actually TRAINED it wouldn't behave that way.
