Well he is a handsome boy. However, every time I've seen him, he seems barely under control and always seems to break gait and not necessary know his commands. I love to see him but hope movies like this, don't put the average rider off, from considering a Saddlebred as their every-day mount. None of mine ever behaved that way, had to be stopped between gaits or constantly nagged to behave. I'd be scared to ride this boy.

Wow, he seems really hot and too distracted to listen to the rider. Not my cup of tea.

Beautiful horses and very tolerant of the rider.

This rider has no confidence, and appears to be on his face most of the time. I'm sure this horse would succeed with a more confident and relaxed rider.

No, thank you. Nothing about that looked fun. Perhaps because when I say Whoa, I expect my horse to stop, but then I ride reiners. I do not say it again , and again, and again.......after a while it means nothing....all the horse is hearing is "blah blah blah...." she is constantly babbling at him. It appears he does pretty much what he wants.

I have seen this horse, ridden by another experienced rider. He behaved in exactly the same way.

Here is another video of him from last year.
Oh yes, he is one of those "not for everyone" kind of horses. He fits into the "all show horse" category. She is most definitely not a timid rider. He wouldn't put up with that. A horse has to be that game, that excited to be a top gaited horse. She does such a great job keeping him in check. I do agree that he would probably run off if he could get away with it.

For the record, she isn't telling him "Whoa". She is not asking him to stop. She is saying "Whoop". There is a BIG difference. LOL. One of my funnier moments was when I was driving a hackney the night before my class. We were going at a good show trot and I saw a road horse coming down the ramp. When I turned, I said "Whoa" instead of "whoop" and my pony slammed to a halt and I wound up in the basket. It was hilarious once I figured out what the heck happened.

Everyone talks to their horses. Easy, whoop, trot, canter, waaaalk. That ear flicking back says he's listening. Talking to your horse does not mean you are nagging or lack confidence. It is just... what people do.

I think now they need to do one of these videos with CH Sprinkles, or a roadster, or a fine harness horse. This was of the TOP. Wow, what a ride!

I ride a hot head barrel horse.....there's a difference between excited to do their job and blowing through cues and flipping their rider the bird.
