The rider in the rearing video is one of my favs on youtube... I never would have guessed that she is the type of rider who would do that. I have never seen her be so heavy handed like that before either. I am so, so sad to see her ride like that. She is normally a very lovely rider and does well with most horses, but that...? That was heartbreaking... ),:
I leased a horse that when he was being broken in, they would make him rear and would hit him over the head with an open water jub when he did go up. This made him think that he cracked open his head. Luckly he was very trusting of people so he was fine with people touching his ears by the time that I was riding him. Poor guy though. "/
You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.
