I feel so sorry for that horse. He looks like he doesn't even know what is going on. That rider looks completley unbalanced too and is using his reins to keep him in the saddle.
The guy on the ground shoul not be chasing the horse. That is an accident waiting to happen.
Poor horse..

What trainer? My take is a kid someone asked to ride a horse that keeps dropping it's shoulder and trying to run out.

The rider is not balancing off the reins. He is attempting to correct by pulling the horse back to the circle instead of lifting and keeping the horse under him and using his outside leg as a wall to block the dropped shoulder.

That is a terrible video and hard to watch. Looks like someone was hiding behind the trees taping it. That looks to me like he's not a trainer, but to be truthful, I don't think he's doing a bad job. I wouldn't say poor horse, I'd say that horse has some pretty big issues. It's trying hard to get the guy off, it's trying to run out, doesn't want to steer. I would say that horse NEEDS a trainer. But poor horse and bad trainer I wouldn't say.

Thats what I thought 2. Looks more like the horse was bad not the kid.

I sure hope you people who are so judgmental never watch my mare on one of her 'no thank you, do not want to do what I'm told' days. Sigh. Not all horses are perfect all the time. Life is not butterflies and rainbows.

I agree with MLS and farmpony.

Some guy was asked to get on an unruly horse.

I agree wuth ab that is pretty much what most of us look like when horses are being stubborn. Luckily we don't have people hiding in the bushes recording. He is not actually doing anyhting to hurt the horse

He has decent balance, and I don't see him hanging off the horse's mouth or seesawing the bit.

The horse is being a butthead but his rider isn't beating him, cranking on his head, or kicking him in the ribs.

I don't think he's an actual trainer so much as an exercise rider.

In any case, whoever took the video had no real clue what they were seeing and just decided to snark about abuse.
