Chavs and horses are a bad mix.

Making a horse buck seems to be a bit backwards in the way of training.

I've ridden a lot of buckers and I get them through it by ignoring them. "Sure, you can buck if you want, but we're not going to stop working." I don't discipline for bucks. I kick them in the ribs because a buck is a refusal to go "forward", and a kick in the ribs is a reminder to go in that direction. I've never whipped for a buck, it invites another buck and encourages the habit.

The sessions should be about work, not focusing on the bucking. The horse can do whatever the heck it wants to do, but we're stilll working. It doesn't matter if the apocalypse is happening. After a while when the buck is ignored, the horse will no longer do it because there was no reaction when it happened other than "Yeah, right. More work".

Telling it to "buckbuckbuckbuckbuckbuck!" instead of giving it something to refocus on is backwards. In training, you redirect the negative energy into a positive step, you don't focus on the negative and make them perform bad purposefully.

There was a couple times she smacked that horse for no good reason. I don't care what the story is, I would have taken her straight off the animal. I will never believe that this is appropriate, or an appropriate way to break a horse out of bucking by lacing it over and over again. A whip should never be used this way. That's why too many people consider it an abusive device instead of a training tool its meant to be.

Yeah, kind of English version of irritating, inconsiderate, obnoxious, etc and so forth people I guess, we call them Bogans in Australia. I just heard the sound of the person filming and thought she sounded like a chav.

To me it is apparent that they are making that horse buck for the camera. The person filming is laughing, and I believe at one point says, "[Horse name?] has some buck in him, eh?" like they've never seen him do it before.

Even if the horse were bucking like that unprovoked, that is definitely not how I would attempt to get control of my horse.

From what I saw, the idiot was smacking him to make him buck. Because when the horse stops, the abuser smacks him again as a "reward." Way to "break" a horse, you stupid jackalope. Would that someone would take a whip to you and break you in.

Wow... Putting a horse over a human's life? That's scary.
HF scares me when it gets borderline PETA.


That was a **** impressive fall, that's what I'm going to say. I sure as heck don't roll and jump up like that.
