I got a kick out of these LOL.
 
Was just browsing youtube and found these. I thought they were pretty darn funny. I know I really shouldn't laugh, but I figure since I've been there a time or 5, it's okay

I have to commend the horse for putting up with this for as long as he did.


And this is one of the worst buckers I have seen in a very long time. Reminds me of some of the horses my Dad rode when I was a kid :shock:.

I have seen the cutting one... I thought it was funny too! The guy did a great job staying on LOL

Oh wow. Yea, I had one in to break like that last one.... fun stuff. NOT. lol She was making the most awful noises while she bronc-ed like that too. Pretty intimidating... I still see that mare and she is still a wench, too.

Wow! I was riding my mom's paint gelding and we were cantering, and my hat flew off just like that. Warrior stopped and whirled around, going 'what the heck was that?' I love that horse Lol.

He though has never bucked from spookiness. His trainers did an amazing job with him. When riding, he always spooks in place.

The first video was funny, lol.

In the third video, why is there a mirror in there? So the horse can see how pretty he looks? Haha, after the guy falls off, he stops! Lol is his hind foot relaxed too?

I have never seen a horse be that bad other than a bronc in the rodeo! What set it off like that? O.o

The mirror is so that you can look at yourself while riding. You can see your equitation flaws and fix them yourself, or see how your horse is moving.
I enjoyed the last video. And may I ask you what you meant by "horse for putting up with this for as long as he did" in the third video? The only thing I noticed was the rider didn't have that great of canter equitation, and the only way to fix that is to ride it.

The first two were pretty good, but the last one scared me. Why put a head-setting device on a horse that might blow up? Puts the horse off balance, and the whole situation is made that much more dangerous.

I thought I saw a tie down on that horse... wondered the same thing. A tie down is counter-productive for a bucker anyways....

yeah, I saw the tie down on the horse in the last video too. I thought the "trainer" had it coming. - one of the horses in the still pictures being ridden bareback was all ribby and unacceptably thin. that whole video was just bad. I noticed they disabled the comments, probably because they knew they'd get yelled at.

^^That's what I'm thinking. Most of the pics in that vid were of horses wearing tie-downs! Forced head-set, anyone?

that guy on the reining horse did a great job staying on. The ridder on the grey/white horse was so buncy i can see why the horse had enough and bucked her off. Its like she was trying to stand in the saddle or something. I didnt even finish watching the last one, I watched just a few seconds. I certantly would not call that guy a trainer.

Amlalriiee 10-31-2010 10:08 PM

Not trying to defend anyone/argue...just another thought to add. I was thinking the tie-down may have been to keep the horse from rearing? He did leap up quite a bit before bucking. His actual kick up with the hind feet wasn't bad half the time, the leap up was the worst of it. Could have been same situation for the other horse that was wearing one. Toward the end of the video I noticed that he didn't have one on this horse anymore so I'm inclined to think it's not something he'd ride with every time. Just trying to give benefit of the doubt here...
