"Horsemanship at its WORST" video...what do you think?
This video has a lot of views on YouTube and a lot of different opinions on it. I think it might be interesting to see what actual horse people think of this vid.
(Btw, tell me if the video didn't show up...I've never posted a video before so I don't know what will happen)
i think this lady is uneducated and should not have been allowed to handle a stallion
The woman appears to be rather clueless about how to handle an excitable stallion, but I wouldn't call it horsemanship at its WORST by any means.
I was expecting something more dramatic and horrifying. This was rather anticlimactic, to say the least. I've seen much worse in person.
I think it's difficult to judge someone's horsemanship expertise on one video.
It looked like an accident waiting to happen, hitting a stallion in the neck and yelling "NO" at it doesn't do much... but, it wasn't the worst handled situation I've ever seen. She had SOME idea of what she was doing, but she didn't see confident enough to handle him...
Although, when he struck at her I almost closed my eyes for the rest of the video lol...
Really? WORST? I wouldn't call that the worst anything. Very anticlimactic :lol:
Yeah it wasn't a professional or smoothly handled situation but I think people are just being jerks and looking for ways to put other people down in order to feel good about themselves.
Something like that? Not very flattering, not very experienced with an excitable stallion but... People need to get lives!
Totally agreed. This video has ALWAYS annoyed me. The handler is obviously intimidated by him, but it's a far cry from the WORST horsemanship I've ever seen. This animal is borderline out of control, and a completely uneducated person would have been seriously injured in this video. She obviously has some skill in handling horses, and it's blatant to me that she's afraid of him and focusing more on keeping herself safe which you always want to do but tends to actually put you farther into danger when you're that afraid. People who are afraid try to keep themselves at a distance, like you see, as opposed to right at the horse where it's safer.
Anyway, I agree that people need to get lives. She managed the situation without anyone getting hurt or bred, so kudos to her.
Agreed. I cringed a bit seeing her get between the horse and the wall, horse and the gate, etc, but as others have said, this is nothing like worst horsemanship ever - I've seen much worse in person. This was just someone inexperienced, but not really demonstrating complete and total lack of skills.
aaawwww, man. they took the video down before i got to watch it. o well, im sure there are others out there to look at. :)
