Just Stupid!

Hey,

I was having a look on you tube at barrel racing videos and this one made me sick, first of all someone has a sad enough mind to make a video of horses/riders getting hurt in barrel racing. But then people sit there and make rude comments about horses, the comment by panthergal18 on the first page was just plain stupid I would never put the word "funny" in that video anywhere *posted on the first page of comments 6 from the top*

Rachaelray1515 made a comment that horrifies me of something along the lines of "Those horse deserved to be slammed to the ground and whipped"

The comment has now been removed.

Some people really talk themselves up to be more then they are on you tube.

Here is the video:

I've seen that video many times before. I'm a barrel racer and don't mind the video at all. Falls happen to everyone. Its inevitable...especially in a sport thats as demanding as speed events. Sure, people make rude and rediculous comments on there, but that's youtube. Gotta learn to shrug it off.

I've seen the video several times also. And I agree with BuckOff, the video itself doesn't really bother me. They have blooper/wreck reels for any sport. People are always going to make idiotic comments, usually its the people that don't have any idea what they are talking about.

Just learn to ignore it mostly.

^^ Yes, yes, yes.
Those are some pretty good horses though, to put up with some of those rider's bad riding. Some of them looked really off-balance. And looked what happened? Falls. Right and left.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

entertaining

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

And some of the horses it's neither the riders nor the horses fault. Some just slip and fall due to poor arena footing and other things. The video just proves to people that think horse riding is easy that they are wrong.

There are so many videos like that on youtube...alot of the falls do seem to be caused by rider error, but hey...everyone rides the way they ride...
