    I would rather use a saddle & a bridle humanely and go enjoy a trail ride with my horse (who also seems to enjoy this) than train him to do big fancy airs over the ground and have his ears pinned at me like that all the time. I think Toby would be highly dissapointed if we no longer went on the trails - he enjoys seeing new places.

    Its just pure aw factor in the video.

    The "capriole" was off, you could see when he paused the film that one back leg had struck out and the other hadn't. I didn't quite understand the shuffle left and right at the beginning. And the bouncing at 0:40? Not quite sure.
    Love how his horse struck out and kicked in his direction at about 1:00
    Yes I agree. This guy seems kinda of "off the schoolbus".

    It's all useless theatrics. Unless you're with the Lipizzaner Stallions or a pro trick rider, why would you do all that stuff? Why would you want your horse to lay down while you're on him? And why would you straddle the horse while he's lying down? The whole bouncing and pivoting from side to side kind of baffled me, too. I don't see what good it does. I'll be impressed when the guy jumps a 6 foot oxer combination bareback.

    I agree, it is eerily like a cult.

    Just an amateur's thinking here, but... Horses rear when they are scared or angry. So, if you're not careful about how you teach them to rear on cue, scared/angry is what you get. Or, you teach them to rear by making them scared or angry.

    Also, random rearing does not = high school air.
