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.
