Please tell me this is not how training a horse to drive really goes.

Or does it really? I've never seen a horse been trained to drive except once and it sure as hell didnt end up like this.

No that isn't how you train a horse/pony to be driven, and sadly I have to say I have seen this video before, I think horse abuse but mostly less then agreeable training methords is still a big problem in some Easten Europeen countries.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

Wow. The whole time I was thinking "Someone is gonna get hurt." And then they flipped off the front of the wagon. Not surpised, and I don't feel bad.
They are lucky that that is the only mishap. They're lucky he didn't break any legs or seriously injure someone.

There are stupid people in every country. I come from an Eastern European country, too, and of course we have our share of terrible "trainers" and horse mistreatment, but proportionally - not much more than in other countries.

The video is ghastly.

Is it mean that I totally laughed when that horse ripped them out of their seat? I wish no harm on anyone but at some point "You deserved that" crossed my mind.

Bad training? Absolutly, but abuse...Im not seeing it. Seems like some idiots hitched up a horse without starting him properly and he showed them he wasnt a fan of that cart following him

When the one person rode in front of the horse all i thought was 'yeah thats its. Ride bareback in front of a terrified horse that has a huge cart hooked to him. That'll solve everything!'

Sad to say, ive seen worse. That was messed up, big time

Never forgot the horse that taught you to be fearless (Braveheart RIP) the horse that taught you to stay strong no matter how bumpy the road is (Caesar) and the horse that always had to test gravity by throwing you in the air (Cali)
