I did have to explain to them where to sit on him, that's why his back end went down, because they were sitting too far back.
If I knew this was going to cause such a big problem, I wouldn't have posted it.
He was in no stress and there was no harm done.
I never saw the video, but from what I hear, the goat could've been done a lot of harm. If you are desparate for a horse, then go find a horse to ride! I'm always wanting to ride horses, but I don't go jump on my beagle or my cat! That's ridiculous! I also agree with jazzyrider that if they rode horses, they should know where to sit.
Even if the goat used to be a pack goat, which I have never heard of, he probably hasn't carried that much weight in a while.
Think before you put an animal in danger.
