    The thing that bothers me is that guy is way too big for that pony. WAY too big.

    Plenty of people don't break horses. They train them instead.

    Everyone knows you need to break a horse or pony paitently and gently! I can't beleive someone would do that!!!

    That horse should have been prepared first, and the ill-fitting tack didn't help one bit.

    That guy did not seem like the best person to be breaking a horse.
    Rednecks at a rodeo, perfect image.

    Green Broke
    That some people find nothing wrong with this is absolutely unreal to me.

    99% of properly handled horses will never buck. These idiots did not BREAK this pony, unless you count the broken parts of his structure that will cause him problems at 10. Absolutely nothing these morons did in any size shape or form made this pony ANY more ready to be ridden by a child then he was before - matter fact, I will bet you any mount of cash you want they just made it TEN times worse to actually train him.

    I get that small ponies sometimes need to be ridden by larger people to be trained, but it was ludicrous to me that anyone could say this was ok. A yearling is PERFECTLY capable of pulling an all out rodeo with a 200 pound man on him - let's go saddle up some yearlings shall we? I mean, obviously if they can pitch a fit that big, they're strong enough to handle it right?

    I worked carnival ponies for 10 years, and every single time we had a young pony we were going to start using for rides, I would get on and ride for 5 minutes. After a lifetime of being handled, loved and leaned on, we did not ever have a single instance of any pony protesting to a saddle and little rider.

    Anybody who thinks THAT is how you break a horse should not be allowed within sixty miles of a young green horse. That's how you screw them up for life, NOT how you train them to be safe for CHILDREN of all things.

    What you are missing is that there is *NEVER* any need for a horse to be started in that manner. It is disgusting. I know I am not in the big league starters and backers, I've started about 20 of my own, but with proper careful ground work beforehand. I have never had a single horse or pony buck, rear or panic. And Lusitanos are not "quiet" horses.

    ^^^^agree with Lusitano and MM. The vast majority of properly started horses don't buck, let alone throw a rodeo performance like this. Completely unecessary if your goal is a ridable pony rather than hits on YouTube.
