the video is still working, embedding is just been disabled. double click on it, and it will open the original vid in a separate window. :)

This animal is borderline out of control, and a completely uneducated person would have been seriously injured in this video. She obviously has some skill in handling horses, and it's blatant to me that she's afraid of him and focusing more on keeping herself safe which you always want to do but tends to actually put you farther into danger when you're that afraid. People who are afraid try to keep themselves at a distance, like you see, as opposed to right at the horse where it's safer.

Anyway, I agree that people need to get lives. She managed the situation without anyone getting hurt or bred, so kudos to her.
I agree totally with MM. It was certainly a dangerous situation, but you can't call it the worst horsemanship having only seen one video of her.

I think, that the woman lacked the confidence to handle the horse, and was highly intimidated. I don't think it necessarily shows the worst horsemanship, just that someone more confident could have handled the horse better.

I find it amusing (in a not good way) that the sole purpose of the person posting the video on youtube was to point out what an incompetant idiot the person in the video was.

I really do not see how this person acted that much differently than many people would have in the same situation. (Not saying it was the correct response, just saying it is what most people would have done.) It does not take a stallion to have your horse suddenly forget they are with you and need to listen.

Honestly, the owner needs to discipline her stallion. If either of our stallions started to act in such a dangerous manner, they be hearing about it to say the least.

This is far from the worst, its not as if the lady is beating her horse with a club to a bloody pulp. Just simply lacking is experience.
