I wouldn't call it stupid, everyone has their own methods and we all know horses are weird creatures.

Jynx has been a trail pony for over a year now, we ride through dense bush almost daily in summer, she gets wacked by sticks, and leaves and branches and all kinds of foliage. One day I broke a stick with some leaves off and held it down in front of her nose to see if she wanted a nibble and she went BALLISTIC. You would have thought I was trying to electrocute her - she started spinning violently, throwing her head, backing up and snorting and doing everything in her power to get away from it. I ended up having to carry the stick home out of her sight, then get Shay-la to dismount and desensitize on the ground and then transfer it to me to keep her calm! You would have thought we were trying to kill her with that silly old stick!

Either way I adore this video and that woman is an unbelievable rider.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

Wow! She's definitely a good rider - it wasn't easy to stay on! (and the horse is definitely a GOOD farter.... )

Wish I could ride through bucks like that, but come on, drop it sooner! Could have been really uglly. Now she will have to backtrack a lot to make up for that bad experience.

she is a great rider, that's for sure.
i've worked my horse with tarps or sheets all wrapped around him just cause i like him to be desensitized to everything, never know when it might help me out someday :). and i agree that it's likely she used it in the ground first, probably numerous times.. i don't know about everyone else but my horse can be ridden with/through/past/under/over something a million and one times, but the next time, it's gonna kill him!

In her defense, she was holding onto the tarp and the reins with the same hand. When you're riding a horse that's freaking out, you're not even CONSIDERING letting go.

I love the girl at the end. "oh my GAAWD." That horse had some fancy moves in it...Little rear/jumping action going on.

wow shes good for staying on it's funny cos when my horse sppoked at my whip one day (which by the way even though I always ride with it just in case I very very rarely have to use it so it's not like hes scared of it cos a whack him with it all the time) my first reaction was to drop the whip... and grab the reins but then again I wasn't holding the reins at all cos I was sorting some stuff out haha next thing I know we're doing one eighties and galloping xD

Wow! I ride western, so I have a horn to grab onto in case of emergencies, but I would have fallen off right from the start! Seemed like a good de-sensitizing method, though. I mean, for all we know, she did sensitize him on the ground first, and this was the next step. Who knows what she's training him to do-- maybe she wants to ride in a parade with a long cape over his butt! That would be awesome.
