what is this horse doing?!

found this video on youtube, apparently the horse gets really excited when he sees grass.. i have never seen a horse react like this

This is an example of how people end up getting hurt. I would NEVER let a horse act like that around me PERIOD. And would she laugh about her horse having trouble getting back up? She's an idiot.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

That girl is going to get her or her horse really hurt from allowing that. That is poor handling at its finest.

It's actually really sad because if that horse acts like that seeing grass, it likely rarely sees it, if ever...that horse needs a pasture to run in and is obviously relaying it to the girl who is oblivious. IMO

My gosh, I've never seen animal act like that.

Perfect example of poor handling right there. That animal looks like it was having a seizure o.o

That looks like a horse that has been confined for very long time, and needs to be excerised, or pastured.
How sad, how some horses are kept and handled by their owners.
Both could have been injured.............

American Justice-standardbred gelding great ground manners but when he sees grass he goes crazy becuase he wants to be turned out really bad!
Currently still at the track racing! <--- what the video description says... so im assuming from the way he acts when he sees grass, he doesnt get turned out at all O.o madness....

They both need a slap, if my horse did that round me she'd have a whip across her stomach, chest- whereever it hit.
The girl needs a shake and a wake up call... bit late shaking the rope at it now.. jesus and some people wonder why horses are 'dangerous' ARGH.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
