Apparently he wasn't happy with his last horse so they put him on the "bouncy" one.
Thats ******ed, not only do both horses have their ears pinned the entire time, but there are other kids not a few feet from him. What if they ran into him because they couldn't control their horse?

I am constantly amazed at how stupid people can be around horses!!! She obviously must not be a horse person, or she would know that even the best horses can be unpredictable.

But, aside from that - does anyone else feel sorry for those poor horses? Didn't they all look miserable?

I have never seen anywhere like that place - it looked like complete chaos.

Holy crap.

When I saw the second video I felt so bad for that pony. What a nice little pony to "take one for the team" like that.

As for the idea/situation/etc... there is far too much for me to comment on, so i'll bring up these points...

I have witnessed a ranch i knew and had been to get shut down BECAUSE.... Grandpa and Daddy wanted to do something nice for their Daughter/Granddaughter on her birthday DDD So they took her to a OMG PONY RIDE YAAAAY!! Mommy didnt know, because mommy said it wasn't safe for a 4 year old to be unattended on a horse. So Daddy and Grampy put this little fresh 4 year old on a horse and STRAP HER IN DDD because its SAFER that way right?!! Thats why we have seat belts on motorcycles RIGHT?!! because we WANT to stay with the Motorcycle as it wrecks... RIGHT?!!! So.. happy girl bouncies on the fun little horsie until he gets spooked, bolts, saddle slips, she LITERALLY... gets her head caved in by the thundering back legs. The horse ran 1 1/2 miles all the way back to the barn with the little girl underneith him... bucking and striking underneith his belly trying to shake her loose... but THANK GOD SHE WAS WEARING A SEAT BELT... because if she wasn't she might have actually -LIVED-. the little girl died sometime in the 1 1/2 miles while the horse was running home. She had no back part of her skull left, and there was blood and... "matter" everywhere.. on the horse, trail, street, etc. Of course, no helmet in this situation either (not sure if they make one that small anyways). The ranch got shut down by the City of Los Angeles later that week. I remember when I went there I TOLD THEM what a dumb arse idea it was to use seatbelts, and they brushed me off.

Now, back on topic to this video (since i strayed off with my "wtf with the seatbelt rant)... Did any one else notice that the fence in the background is like.. easily demolishable by horse? They have 8 horses going in this tight little ring, and if one spooks it'll bash into the rest of it, run through that little toothpick fence, and right into... TRAFFIC DDDD YAY!!

What a terrible idea, and what a terrible place. I feel very sorry for the horses... WTF put BITS in their mouths when the people who will be USING THEM have no clue how on earth to ride?!! These are people with no riding experience and are under no instruction, yet they get these reins put in their hands and go have a bloody ball.

Okokokok.. i'll stop now. Promise. thanks for sharing the videos Spyder/Lucara, It makes me glad that I teach people how to ride.. it'll be one less individual going to a place like that and making those horse's lives more misrable.

My God. Honestly. What was she thinking? Oh wait, she WASN'T! I can't believe that somebody would actually allow a child that age to ride by himself, let alone not have him wear a helmet or be lead around. I too was a youngster (2 yrs old) when I started riding, but my aunt always lead me around. Until I was 6 anyway. But honestly. Shame on the business owner and double shame on the mother. Absolutely clueless. I don't care how broke a horse is, they're still animals and can do anything they want whenever they want.
Strapped to a horse without a helmet or lead even?? Yea, no thanks.
I feel even worse for the poor horses that have to deal with idiots like that. WE all know horses are smart and one day those ponies are going to get their revenge I'm sure.....

I am totally against governement and whatnot having a say in who gets to reproduce or how many, for example how it is in China. But in this case, I would say these people need to be "fixed". Pronto!

What disturbs the ever loving crap out of me isn't just the asinine woman and the child who's obviously going to get crippled at some point during his short life, but who on EARTH is running this freakshow? Seriously? How do they not have enough accidents to get themselves sued on a daily basis?

I used to work for a carnival, specifically doing pony rides. It was by far the most responsible setup I've ever seen. We had height and weight limits in place, and I had full rein to deny anyone. Bernice cared by far more about her ponies then about money. People would actually scream and complain because when it was 40 degrees celsius, all the ponies would get an hour break every hour (hour of rides, hour of quiet time). They were enclosed in a portable metal pen, and they were each individually led around by a handler to ensure our full attention. And I demanded parents walk with their children and HOLD them if they were under 2-3 years old. I actually had to get beligirent and kick people out at times because parents would be like "HE'S FINE, HE'S FINE!" as the kid is sliding off the flipping side and I'm doing the crabwalk shuffle trying to lead a pony and catch a kid at the same time.

/end rant

People are stoopid.
