You punish in the middle of an act so the message is that the act is bad but stopping is good. The horse was tugged on the mouth and tried to escape, she should have smacked it yes but not once it had come down and not on the head especially not with a crop. Because you have seen worse does not make this right and I feel quite sad that you think we are over reacting. I've been on a rearer but I didn't smack it on the head once it had come down. The way I see it the only acceptable time to smack a horse on the head is if it is biting you and then you do it as the horse is either going for you or has hold of you.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

I ride a young TB, Woody. He can sometimes rear when a schooling whip is used (which i wasnt told about, ah well i KNOW now). All I was told to do was to relax and give him the rein and his reaction was 'oh youre not going to fight me?' and then he stopped.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

In all do respect, when you're on a rearing horse, you're thinking about staying on, not smacking him when he's up rearing. I'm done making excuses for the rider.

I think everyone has made their point and there is little need to continue. I've gone in and changed some posts due to the harshness of the responses; it was done without changing the tone of the response.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
