What do you find so offensive? Horse bucks, riders does a pretty fantastic job to stay on and spank the horse for bucking......rider gets dumped......happens all the time.....if a horse bucked with me I'd spank it's rear end too......

This is not how you break a horse. He wasn't just smacking it when it bucked, he also whacked it several times after it had stopped and was standing.

I wondered about that, too. Why she smacked him once he stopped bucking.
I wonder if she was putting a leg on to say "go" and he was ignoring her?

looks like the horse was bucking because of the smacking.

Did they actually say that this horse was being broke? Or we're they joking in the title? That horse could have been so humped up under that guy when it was just standing there.......that he wanted it to get the buck out....
What's he supposed to do when it bucks then? Just let it? Fall off? What do you suggest he does when a horse drops its head like that?

And yes Tiny, he was probably smacking it because it wasn't moving forward unless it was bucking......

This is not all that unusual.....

To me it is pretty clear they are smacking the horse to get it to buck.

When I'm on a horse that is bucking, what I have found is that if you smack its butt for bucking, it's going to buck bigger and harder.

What I would suggest is not causing the buck. Depends on the horse - put it on a circle, get it listening, there are far better options than what this man is doing.

My internet is a little too slow to play the video smoothly....

So from I would gather is that if he had a habit of getting out of work by bucking, he also probably learned to get out of work by sulling up. I would spank him too if that is the case.

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

Sometimes getting the horse and in a circle to listen only applies to nice horses.....

And sometimes you don't need to cause the buck.....the horse decides he wants to buck and not you......

That horse was being a turd......if he was terrified he'd be running and bucking and really throwing himself around.....he was plain being naughty....
