    As I watched the video, I was impressed at how the guy worked with that horse. He had a good seat, and his heels were down. He didn't get into the horses face, and was trying to get it to move foward. He did a much better job then I ever would.

    Well I guess I had better watch out that someone doesn't tape me one day when I am training a problematic horse! He didn't do a bad job with a horse that was really misbehaving badly. If anything he probably could have given the horse a little more room to move forwards with his hands. On a horse like that I would sure as hell be carrying a crop to send him forwards rather than sideways and backwards. I suppose that would make me a horse abuser and terrible trainer too.

    It's hard to tell what was really going on with that horse and ride combination. Will admit the rider's lack of proper riding clothes made it slightly less believeable that he is in fact a trainer, who knows. When watching the horse, it's also hard to say if it was simply a matter of misbehaved/untrained/green horse being a punk, or if there is something the rider has been doing, or is doing to cause what you saw in the video.

    As for posting the video online and talking about it, well. The internet is what it is. Though I would be very upset if someone did this to me, the second you go out in the public eye, you have to deal with what comes along with it.

    This is what drives me absolutely BONKERS about all these prissy little show barns preaching equitation to utter novices - you get people who see things like this and are so ridiculously blind, they can't even see what a GOOD job he's doing.

    Yeah, he gets a little flappy and bouncy at times - how about his criticizers post THEIR videos of dealing with a snotty youngster? He doesn't have spurs OR a whip - the horse is pitching a fit in the beginning, and he not only rides the bucks out, he actually gives him his head to get him forward, and only takes up a battle when the horse is trying to run away or run out. He may not be winning a hunter ring, but he stayed ON and got the horse moving - end of story. This isn't a showring - it's the ring of teaching witchy horses that this crap will not be tolerated. He's the one BEHIND the scenes of that expensive hunter you bought all trained and ready to go!

    He can get on one of my horses any day of the week compared to some of these so called COWBOY trainers we have around here!
