Yes - which is why people shouldn't pull videos off youtube at random. Start a problem where there is none.

a video never tells the full story.

He's done a good job of staying on and pushing the horse forward. I don't think you can criticise him too much. That horse is being a snot! Dropping its shoulder, jumping/bucking, refusing to turn, I can go on. The only thing I didnt like is when he hit the horse in the head.

We've all had a bad day with our horses, his was just put on youtube.

So true!

The idiot who posted it on youtube is..well an idiot too. They too are looking for people to complain about the horrible abuse.

But poor horse and bad trainer I wouldn't say.
I agree with FP 100% First of all, when someone hides in the bushes to video an idividual, they've got it in for that person. I'm sure there is some legality with secretly taping someone then posting it on the internet to bash them. Taping them knowingly is one thing, but it was clear as the leaf veil would allow it to be, that this was being taped in hiding.

If you read the comments posted on youtube they say it was taped on purpose to show how mean the rider/trainer was.

Yep so the havent got the guts to go over and talk to him, so they hide in a bush and take a video of him and post it on youtube. That's really low!

Yeah!
They watch thru the bushes while they are at a horse show (that is what they posted, right?) and they assume they know what is going on.

People are so short sighted. I suppose if you have always ridden horses that knew how to steer and simply tried to be compliant you would totally have no clue what is going on in that video.

He sure handled it better than I could have, I'd be on the ground pretty quickly. He's dealing with a snotty horse, and not doing a horrible job at it.

I'm pretty sure it's called video voyeurism and though the law was enacted due to a landlord playing "peeping tom" on a woman in her home during private moments the law does state it's a criminal offense to video tape someone without their knowledge. If they actually came forward with this video the person recording it would likely be charged with trespassing, voyeurism for recording it, and libel/slander for posting it online for others to see and therefore causing damage to the persons reputation. I'd advise nobody else to hide in bushes with a tape recorder

For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!
