Ignoring bucking doesn't always work - personal experience there. Some horses say "oh, so you don't mind if I do that? Well don't mind if I do" and then escalate. My mare went from a little pissy pop up in the hind (which would get her a pop on the shoulder with the reins and a growl) to full on bronc bucking. The only way to fix that little habit was to confront it head on. Took a few rides, but now she's past that almost entirely.

.....and why is he bucking? To me proper training has been either rushed or is/was non existent. Someone needs to whip the rider and the person taking the video, idiots.

The most "horrible" thing about this video is the obnoxious laugh....

That is what I was seeing as well. I never get into the videos where some morons are standing around watching an animal being manhandled while they laugh like idiots. If all of us watching the video cannot make sense of what the rider is doing, how could they expect the horse to understand? I have managed to train several horses from foal up to show horse and have NEVER had to ride and beat a horse. There are many ways to train horses but some are more humane then others. I would never suggest what was happening in that video as a good option. If a horse is bucking like that with a rider, they might want to start with soundness issues and saddle fit before trying to "beat it out of the horse." Just a thought.

After doing a little digging, I have learned that the RSPCA has been involved, as the owners sent this horse in for more training and had NO IDEA this was how the poor horse was being treated by these abusive trainers. The "trainers" responsible are shutting down websites and trying to get rid of evidence. Does that sound like the actions of someone who was simply "correcting a bucking habit"? No. I don't think so. Hopefully they will be able to do more than just give them a slap on the wrist. This is just awful.

Ok this was a pretty big thing a while back in the UK it was all over Facebook and forums. Horse and hound had a pretty long thread about it. These people were so called 'professionals' this horse had been with them for just a few hours they literally took him off the lorry and jumped on him, the horse was not a bucker or anything malicious just simply young and green previous owner had not had the time for him due to other commitments and he was sold to these people through a friend of the owner who had no idea they were like this. I've seen videos of the horse before he was sold to these people and he was lovely. As soon as someone contacted the previous owner and showed them the video they were disgusted and immediately arranged to have the horse picked up when they got there this poor guy had welts all across his hind end and was pretty distressed. The RSPCA got involved, the website for this 'company' was taken down and the horse was swiftly taken to the vets for a quick check up and then back home. This was a sweet young horse that was being punished for no reason straight after travelling quite a way. The woman that owned the company is rumoured to have been the girlfriend of the spindles farm owner not sure if you guys woulld have heard about that but it was the biggest case of horse abuse the RSPCA have ever encountered. Hope this clears things up the thread is probably still on H&H somewhere if anyone wanted to go see. The owner of the horse actually commented there. :)
