Nothing wrong with getting after a horse if he's not doing something correctly. I don't show Arab halter, so I have no idea, and have no place to judge... I think that might be the same situation the OP is in. Plus, in the video you're interpreting what you think the horse is feeling/thinking, what if he's simply testing the handler? They do do that.
On another note, I'm not a huge fan of taking videos of someone without their knowledge (or knowledge of what you're going to do with it), editing them up in dramatic fashion, then posting them all over the internet just to cut the person down... My 2 cents.
