OH NO let's not open THAT box of fun!

Not everyone is going to train a horse the same way as the person next to you . My old trainer trained her pleasure mare by tying her down by her bit and making her run till she learned to slow down . Do I think it's right ? No . Does it get results ? Yes . Not everyone trains with the same methods . My trainer and I don't even have the same methods, but are our horses happy and responsive ? Yes . Does it make me a little uncomfortable to watch this horse get pulled ? Yes . Does the horse look uncomfortable ? Yes, but that's the point . What I learned is make the right thing easy and the wrong thing difficult . And he's making the wrong thing difficult and making the right thing easy . It's not abusive . It's training .

Oh man, I don't want to. I was just asking if that's who she was talking about.

Why exactly in the video description does it state:

Taken at the Florida Reining Horse Association show at the Florida State Fairgrounds on February 25, 2012.

This man was seen abusing his horse by sawing at his mouth mercilessly, even when the horse did what he was asked.

Please help identify this man so he can be brought to justice.

I don't really think this is point blank abuse. Is this really punishable by law? What happens when they find out who this is and contact authorities and give a heavily exaggerated description of this abuse? Isn't that an invasion of privacy? There will be THOUSANDS of people looking for this man now. In a way he is being, if I am correct, stalked? They WANT this person in trouble.

That is exactly what scares the crap out of me-and then his name is there! Any whack job can take a video snippet of any one of us at a show and do this. I really hope someone lets him know, at the very least. I would think that the poster could be charged with something? Sure hope so. I do not now what the law is, honestly, but scary for sure.

If I ever found a video of myself like that on youtube I would have a few words to say to the uploader. I'm sure some natural horsemanship extremist will eventually try and nail me for using an over and under when I barrel race. That'll be a fun day.

This is where Utube falls down along with the laws keeping up with technology. What this guy is doing is not abuse but what the OP is doing is wrong and if they really think this is bad there are other ways to go about doing something about it. There needs to be laws about this type of postings and UT needs to remove the video.

The comments on the video are amusing. People don't realize that a video like this could ruin his showing career? <-- (I'm just assuming) Would you alert the man in this video? If he wrote youtube could they take it down? I agree there needs to be a law.

I actually just flagged it and reported it. Others can do the same, altho I will say it is certainly not an easy process, and would be better of HE did it. I reported it for harassment and cyberbullying-that was the only thing applicable. The privacy stuff has to be first person, and something HE would have to report.

Yes they can because if the video was taken without his permission and posted, I believe it violates his rights.
