    Yeah in some of the videos it looked like you were just making her mad. But idk maybe she was being a brat before but in SOME of them it did look like it was you.

    I agree. It did look sort of like you were instigating and making her rear.

    ^ exactly. Im not the one to rly walk around saying "its all the riders fault" like some ppl *cough cough my mom cough cough* but lots of times the rider can just rly set the horse off and make them mad. It looks like you were doing just that.

    I found nothing good or entertaining about this video to be honest.

    I think you were sending mixed signals to your horse and at times, it looks as if you were purposefully pulling, yanking & kicking to make the horse rear. Then in the rear, you were pulling on its head.
    I completely agree, there's a ton of youtube comments about how you're such a great rider with such a great seat, but I see just the opposite.

    I completely agree with everybody.

    It looks like you were MAKING her rear.

    Am I seeing things or does that mare look very uncomfortable? Does she have a back problem...she doesnt look happy at all, she actually looks upset and stressed throughout most of that video and I found it quite upsetting!

    Okay threw that whole video I couldnt figure out what people were talking about then I watched it again and really looked and you were making that poor horse rear you kicked then pulled back kicked again! Where is the horse suppose to go if ur pulling on its mouth and kicking! Can't go forward not back and the only thing to do is go up! And that's dangerous poor horse was very stressed! Don't do this to a horse just for a movie and some comments Nor do I see a good rider or a good seat threw that video like the comments on youtube said.. im sorry but that whole video was just upsetting

    Lovely horse with huge po, but maybe you want to consider carrying a whip when she does buck and rear. Also is she on a feed?

    What I see.......

    Ok....I see several things here. I am going to be as polite as possible BUT also honest at this critique because of the dangerous behavior I see here.

    1. Your Seat - You don't have one. Sorry. You need to regroup your seat before you can safely tackle this mare's issues. LOTS of flat practice, walk, trot, barebacks! Probably not even on THIS horse, a safer one perhaps one that you're not going to be worried will throw you.

    2. Your Hands - OWWIE! Talk about on her mouth! Quiet hands are essential with a problem horse. When your horse is rearing NEVER EVER kick and pull back at the same time!!! Your horse will eventually go up and over w' you. I know you said she was a previous bolter which is why an arena is your friend. When she rears GIVE her her head and push her forward w' your leg in ANY direction she chooses. Forward movement is what you're looking for. AS SOON as she goes forward a few steps STOP, PRAISE HER! Quit trying to "force" a ride out of her she is not ready for even a simple hack or jumps!

    3. Jumps - DO NOT! This mare is hardly rideable on flat why are you jumping her? Not being mean and I don't really know much about jumping but it looks to me as you're not very confident with it yourself. I would not even consider jumping her until you've got her rearing and bucking fits stopped. Every time you landed you caught her HARD in the mouth AND the back.

    A few other things I can suggest would be a good long lunge before riding so she can work her kinks out before you get on her. Why does she act like such a spaz while being tied?? I would possibly recommend getting her vetted and looked at hormonial issues. Maybe she needs some hormone treatments?? I am not there, I can't really offer up much more with out seeing her in person. Are you sure she doesn't have a sore back or mouth? Who trained her, how long has she been trained.

    Please don't think we are picking on you, we're not. But as it looks right now this is dangerous. Please be careful.
