I don't see how anyone overreacted to the video, it is a clear case of abuse and cause for some outrage among educated and caring horse owners. If you saw someone beating their child in public because they ignored it and it got too far away from her and into trouble, would you not be a little outraged yourself, having seen that is was clearly their fault the incident happened in the first place?
Now I am not comparing horses to children, but my point is that when the person is clearly at fault for the undesirable behavior but takes it out on the subject in an abusive manner, though the subject is only the victim in the first place, it is IMO cause for a little outrage...
