    This disgusts us...

    Does it disgust you too?

    My sis and her friend were pondering across videos yesterday and found this video. When I watched I was just waiting for that pony to flip over on her or break her nose. The draw reins are not helping at all. Well anyways, to the point, we want to know if we are completely wrong about this?

    Poor pony probably feels like he can't move forward with how tight the drawreins were. My mare didnt want to move the first time I put them on her either, but I loosened them and she was fine. But this chick just held them tight tight...poor pony =(

    Erm, that's a toughie to judge. She doesn't have tight draw reins - he's got a teeny little neck, and he's still fully capable of sticking his nose straight up when he's rearing. She's got some pretty decent skills to stick on him like that, and keep him balanced when he's freaking out and almost flipping wit her being so big on him.

    I would wager to say he'd be pulling the exact same thing without them. The tone of the video tells me this pony has been a chronic rearer for some time now, and you don't know how long she's been riding him in draw reins. It COULD be the result, but it could just be him having another episode.

    I would personally have done a few things differently, but I don't think it's anyone's place to tell this girl she did it WRONG. We all handle situations to the best of our ability.

    I have to agree with MM. I probably would have done the same thing in the situation. What was that girl to do? Give up, get down and put her pony away? It was being naughty. You have to ride that out. Every time the pony went up, she released and I think the rein pulling once he was down was trying to get him going in any direction *but* up!

    I can see how these types of videos get taken as bad. The girl is obviously proud of her accomplishment. A little too proud. I don't see anything in that video that I wouldn't do.

    If you look she's kicking and pulling at the same time. She does lean properly, so that's one plus. IF this was a pony that did this often, why would she be putting draw reins on him to begin with? He needs proper training beforehand. Draw reins can be serious and need to be used appropriately. It's a shame because he's too cute :(.

    I feel like punching someone now! One she's whearing pink(soz I hate the color) and two stop kicking and smacking your horse! Get off take him through the area he's rearing at or lunge him kicking and smacking him till he goes forward arnt going to reach him not to rear!!!!

    But by getting off of him...are you not teaching him that rearing works in getting out of work??
        10-11-2010, 10:23 AM
    I don't think getting off would solve his problem, but adjusting her training methods would. Her draw reins are on between the horses legs! Everytime she pulls the reins, that's pulling his head down, not to the side. It takes a very patient, responding horse to train with draw reins (used correctly). In the begining you can really see she's kicking and pulling his head downwards at the same time. It was clearly frustrating for the pony.

    Then if she dosent get off she could get someone to lead or lunge the pony!you may beat him up till he is calm but that only makes him madder when you get him next time!

    To me it looks like she is cueing the pony to rear.... or at least inadvertently teaching it to by kicking and flopping her arms each time....
