After watching a few other videos she says she uses the bag to make him jump or Gypsy refuses without it. Umm yeah because we want to teach our ponies to run away from bags instead of actually figuring out why they are refusing, can't believe I forgot that. *facepalm*

I've seen this. I don't understand. ._.

That bit made me go as well.

It's a lot like nuts and bolts...if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts!

She doesnt seem like a bad or mean little girl to me, she is patting the pony and smiling constantly. I just think she needs direction as to the proper way to ride and play with her pony. She just needs to be taught that chasing a pony with a bag on a stick is not a good way to teach him to jump and is actually scaring her pony. Poor pony, he does truly seem a tolerant little guy and he looks well cared for at least, I have seen a lot worse dont to kids ponies, at least she isnt a mean spirited uneducated little thing. The bit sucks as well but it could be worse too...could be on a crank noseband or wire wrapped.

If she didn't have the bag thing she woulda made the jump nicely...

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

ugh it takes common horse sense to figure out that, that could have turned out alot worse than it did and she probably dosent know how to jump a horse correctly.

Horses are like potato chips...............
you can never have just one.

Oh jeez. This girl is scaring me. In one video she jumps some almost 4' jumps...Side saddle? What? And the jump has no way out, as there is a fence on both sides. Poor pony. :(

At least she loves her.
