I thought he was clapping his hands behind it... I don't know, people can be ignorant...

hahaha... it really doesn't matter what he was trying to do.... it didn't work either way... and as a result we get to laugh at his stupidity, and hope he never does that again :)

hhil. oh my godness. some people have no brains. he got kicked in the face?? and yet he got up and walked towards the horse again. STUPID!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

He probably should not have gotten right behind the horse like that, but he didn't deserve that... It's not like he hit the horse, he simply clapped his hands at it..? I've clapped my hands at a horse before to get them to move away from me. That doesn't mean I deserve to be kicked in the face.

He followed the horse clapped at it and at last put his hands on it.
Doing that in an already stressful situation (was it a parade or something?) and it doesn't ereally look like he had any buisness there. He just wanted to scare the horse and get a show.

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

Either way it was a one minute video and we don't know the story. I hate that people laugh and call others stupid when they don't know the deal. I've seen tons of people clap their hands behind a horse to get it to load on a trailer or whatever. clapping your hands behind a horse might make you dumb but kicked in the face... this is a thread that belongs on fugly.

IMO the horse was walking fine, didnt need to be clapped at and it was allready nervous. He shouldn't have touched the horse when it was so stressed out and spooked, thats why he got kicked.

Obviously, we don't know the story, but it's my opinion that the horse was moving along quite fine. I clap my hands at my horses all the time, but I don't take them to parades, make them nervous, then have strangers run up behind them clapping... that's asking for trouble. Perhaps he didn't deserve to be kicked in the face, but honestly, what he did was entirely stupid and unnecessary. He should have expected as much from a horse that nervous.
