I've been waiting to see if the first vid was able to be viewed. I can't watch it on my phone. What is it that you did? I thought I saw somewhere that it said you did over the top(with the reins), maybe on the Youtube description? Anyway, if that is the case, I don't see it any different than using a crop. I also do it when I get a lack of response. Most of the time I'm hitting my own legs and not the horse. Usually it only takes just the movement of the reins back and forth without even hitting the horse. That's usually what I start with and if it has no reaction, then start smacking the horse.
