I completely agree with you guys. That was NOT a big buck! If with all the different horses and all the times I have been bucked off, and it was that small, I wouldn't have had any injuries except maybe a bruise...big deal. As for using the crop to hit the horse with afterwards...that was just wrong. I agree with what roro said, "In the end, he got what he wanted anyways: he escaped." If she keeps doing this to this horse, she probably will get hurt. He does seem like a level headed horse to me. IMO she needs some SERIOUS lessons. Both in riding and ground work.

That was barely a buck and the kid couldn't sit it? Then got mad at the horse?

If I were her parental unit, that horse would be given away or sold to someone who would treat him right.

No excuse for that kind of attitude or treatment of an animal. No wonder the horse doesn't appear to like her.

Kid needs a serious attitude adjustment, and some lessons with a professional trainer who won't take her crap.

Her parents probably weren't the kind who believed in belting their children...shame. I know if I would have even thought of smacking my horse like that for basically no apparent reason, I would have been beaten.

Honestly, I've sat through bigger bucks than that, and my seat is horrible. Adn then (because I'm fairly certain she knew it was coming) she waits to be bucked off to grab the whip? If it was going to be effective at all she should have been carrying it with her. I don't even think I want to watch the free lunging video.

If she doesn't want him, I'll take him. He's a cute little guy.

Wasn't even a buck. He was kicking at something bothering him. I'm guessing her.

I've seen that video before and I haven't been able to find it for the life of me. The smile on her face and the laughing about it REALLY bother me. It makes me frightened for all horses she is in contact with now and any others in the future. A truly inappropriate reaction to his behavior.

And, free lunging my foot. She's chasing him around with a crop. I'm really very surprised she wasn't kicked in the face. Kudos to Bert for dealing with her as well as he does.

That definately was not a buck. When a horse bucks it's front feet leaves the ground. That horse just gave a little kick and the crappy rider fell off.

If I saw one of my kids take a whip to a horse like that the video would have a disclaimer about child abuse instead of animal abuse. My kid would have a problem riding because of the welts on his butt. Somebody is going to be able to make a mint on that nice horse after she screws him up and either hires a trainer to fix the horse (it would take about 4 rides to fix him) or sells him for a song and quits riding. The latter would deffinately be better than the former for the horse.

Kevin, it probably wouldn't even take four rides. It'd probably just take a different person and the problem would probably disappear for someone who knew WTF they were doing.

So, let's all make a pact to go find Bert and give him an upgrade.

He really is cute as a button, isn't he? If I didn't already have 4 horses, he'd be on my list!
