wow,that girl did good. I thought she was going down!

I have had small bucks not big ones like some videos you see. My horse did this bronco buck once..that scared the crap outta me.

Ppl need not to abuse. Stay calm and breathe. I'm not saying give your horse a pat for everything bad it does..and i mean bad. My horse tries to kick me sometimes and yes, I do kick her and she knows not to do it again. She likes to be a brat and see what she can get away with on some days..but most time(although she is a snob) she is a good girl. We are just working on manners.

Noo, I do not abuse my horse or kick for no apparent reason and I do not do this all the time.

Poco I've seen that video before...and that is definately how it should be handled...calmly and efficiently, no freaking out and beating the crap out of the horse for something that you provoked him to do and already forgot he did(in other words he doesn;t know what the smacking is for.)

OMG the first video of the girl hitting the crap out of the horse was just not appropriate!!

I find people do throw around the word abuse around very easily!! I was told i was a horse abuser and i got an oficial warning because i hit my horse with the whip more than 3 times because he refused a jump "and i was going to get him over it"!! There wasnt even a welt!! But i do beleive that was very un called for in the 1st video ! I would never even think of doing that unless it has a **** good reason!!!! Poor pony i feel like going and ripping the pony from her hands!! Its quite a disgraceand and i swear i would get my ass kicked if my mum ever saw me doing that to my ponies..

I'm not sure that even qualifies as a buck. If that girl had her heels down she wouldn't have come off when her horse hiccuped. And he seems like such a nice horse.

Anyone notice she's not using her stirrups after the rear and STILL sticks with the horse? Now THAT is good riding!

I agree!^ and no wonder her horse effin hates her! I saw one of her videos before and she hit the horses face multiple times for refusing a fence and the girl slide off... SLIDE!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I don't particularly like this video either - see the headgear that's on the horse? They weren't giant bucks either. Admittedly the gal has a hood seat, but I'm curious what caused the rearing and bucking fit in the first place. The horse was stuck, no place to go but up.

I have to agree Charis that I didn't much care for that vid either simply because she didn't know how to properly handle that action (she was pulling on both reins and often see-sawing the bit), but it was still better than the first vid. She was able to ride what most folks would have bailed out on and kept her cool about it.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I saw that video a while ago - and more from her! That chick is a complete idiot and deserves to be beaten upright with a bit of wood.

I don't really like that other video posted of the chestnut western horse. I thought he was going to flip over, to be honest.

If we're on the subject of how to handle a "bad" horse, one thing that I always want to see is forward riding - not pulling and kicking, losing your temper, or staying fixated on what happened ten seconds ago!

I found this the other day and loved how the rider handles the horse's (very colourful!) spooking - I would've abandoned ship, but she just stays with him and keeps going forward and proceeds to ride a beautiful test.

Or how about this? ((Watch from 3:14 on.)) Favourit - whom I've been told is very sensitive to sudden noises and is often spooked at home because of this - just takes off and doesn't stop kicking and bucking until the end of the test. Tinne seems a little shaken at first, but stays with him and works through it.
