This video really bothers me!

What do you think about this video. There is so much stuff that could go wrong..

I think she's reacting pretty normal for a young horse in a strange/new situation.

If that's bad, them my horses I have are all horrible because they were 20x worse bucking. And we did tons of ground work with them.

Atleast she's not in a round pen where her legs and get caught in between the panels and broke in half.

yeah throwing some good bucks thats for sure but Im not seeing anything horrible about the video, it would be better if she was being worked alone and not around other horses. The first time I put a back cinch on my horse not thinking she maybe never wore one she took one lap around the round pen then came unglued bucked hard for several more laps and we never had a problem again, glad I wasnt on her.

I dont think its bad at all, the only thing that I would have changed is that she was alone. the other horses were worried but its something they can get a little more use to as well.

I think its actually kind of cute, it may look alarming but I think the guy has a good handle on the situation and maybe he didn't expect quite such a strong reaction. I agree that the other horses don't help the situation but may their dirty looks did, did you see the expression of that chestnut horse? He was like what the heck are you doing? Im outta here! When you have seen more than one youngster getting its first opportunity to try and buck off his saddle you realize how common it is and how it doesn't last long. By doing it this way the horse starts to think anything you put on its back can't be bucked off but also isn't going to hurt them. This will hopefully trick them into thinking the same about you.

LOL i would be thinking the same thing,they showed the horse being very calm/quite and then he looks like he had a little temper tantrum.I didn't see much wrong i think it was handled very good actually.

I guess there isn't anything competely terrible But I hate the idea that there are about six other horses in the arena. And if he were to let go of that lounge line, who knows what could have happened.!

the horse probably would have stopped had it gotten loose. Most of the time the older calmer horses in the arena cause the horse to finally calm down. The young horse would go to one of the others and probably be pretty easy to cathc. We had that happen at an organized trail ride where he did lose the line. The horse finally just ran up to one that was being quiet and stopped.

haha my horse does this on the lunge too. No big deal. Things happen.
What bothers me is the amount of time they put in this video. Like editing it and stuff. Does anyone on youtube really care if your horse bucks on a lungeline?

I would never work a horse with other horses loose! At 46 seconds, what if that chesnut (loose) had gone between the handler and the young horse! There's nothing "cute" about two horses and a person getting tangled in a lunge line together
