Good lord. That was awful. People are so incredibly stupid.

I guess one thing to be thankful for is at least it looked like their cart was pretty well wrecked at the end.

At least the girl riding the horse wore a helmet?

That's definitely not the way to go about teaching a horse to do anything, but I bet those people didn't blame themselves, I wouldn't be surprised if they punished the horse. They are very lucky the horses didn't get hurt and nobody got seriously injured. I think they rushed the horse and overwhelmed him and just flat out had no clue how to teach the horse. I get so irritated at people who want to rush a horse into something. If they would just learn to do groundwork first and introduce things a step at a time horses wouldn't blow up like that. Of course any horse will blow up if they get scared, feel pressured, and find no other way to escape it. I don't think the horse is scarred for life, but they need to go back and gradually introduce things or that horse won't even want to get near a cart.

it takes a few minutes to ruin a horse for life, and a lifetime to reverse it.

I've seen that before. Is it bad that I laugh when the people fall out?
Yeah, its a good idea to take a scared horse out on the road when he is clearly unhappy in the arena with the cart. I feel so bad for him.

With the right kind of trainer almost every horse who was beaten or taught wrong can be brought back. If that sort of thing happens too many more times with the same results though it could lead to very long lasting effects, but from that one time that horse could definitely be taught to pull.

very pretty horse looks well taken care ( meaning it looks good weight wise and the shininess and overall condition of the horse) of but what the hell. I don't think that horse has ever been hooked up to a cart before. That is so dangerous that poor poor horse. I wonder whatever happened to the horse
