And everyone is entitled to an opinion. And if I had a video like that of me floating around on YouTube, I would probably appreciate being pointed out. I'm concerned for that woman, not mocking her. I don't care who you are or what you do, bad horsemanship is bad horsemanship. If she didn't want to be critiqued, there shouldnt be a video of her like that floating around on the Internet. Enough said..

Look at the title of the video, it's obvious SHE didn't post it. At no point is SHE looking for critique.

It had to come from her, or the person filming her at one point, it's on YouTube about three or four times under different titles..

Well, Idk. The second video w the stud makes me nervous just watching it. Everyone is "somewhere" on some imaginary scale of "horsemanship". I am sure the lady was doing the best she could w whatever knowledge she had, but you have to wonder if the stud was actually the most gentle on record and she knew it, or she was just completely oblivious to the danger she was putting herself in - and other horses. If I were mounted or on the ground (w my horse) and I saw that duo coming my way I would be on red alert....especially in all that mud. :) They walked passed the other horse w/o incident, though. So I am not sure if it's title was the best choice...or if something like, "sometimes the foolish confound the wise" would be more fitting.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I have to agree that this thread may be a really bad idea. I'm not sure Horse Forum should become a place where we can post random videos off the web and rip, shred and make fun of them. I am very uneasy with this.

As a result, I am temporarily closing it while the Moderation Team decides if this should stay or go.
