In my opinion, you learn how to treat animals from the adults around you. I don't think this is a bratty kid just reacting, I think it is a learned behavior. You have to teach kids how to treat animals, especially horses. I also think you should work on showing your kids how to teach animals to do what you want them to. I have a 13 year old, a 6 year old and a 5 year old. All of them know how to treat animals...admittedly my younger ones are working with dogs, not horses, but I think the message is the same. I wouldn't think twice about leaving my 13 year old with the horses alone (although I don't because if an accident were to happen I need to be there), because she knows how to handle them and certainly would do anything abusive to them. The point to this long winded speech is that I think the girl in the video has learned that whipping the horse is the appropriate reaction to the horse bucking.

Bat as in "riding bat", same thing as a crop, just different name for it.

She is a tool

First off...learn to stay on a horse??? That wasn't much of a buck and she goes toppling over his head?

I would have had no issue if she had taken her crop and gave him a slap on the chest or shoulder, as bucking no matter how mild is not acceptable behavior. But to haul off and swing at his face repeatedly, and then chase after him as he escapes her not necessary and not effective training method....
Again TOOL and not a sharp one at that.
Next time I hope the horse steps on her face.

Also I like how someone had to hold the crop for her...shows again the lack of riding skills she has, cant hold a crop and a set of reins at the sametime. People like that don't deserve to own goldfish never mind horses

Horses are like can never just have one

If I ever treated my horse that way, my trainer, my sister, and my mom would both have me strung up by my neck...not even kidding. And you can bet I wouldn't have a horse anymore.

I watched the free lunging video and I have to say, that horse is extremely patient. Lakota would've kicked me in next week if I tried doing that with him. You can tell the girl obviously doesn't know what she's doing. I just want to take that poor horse away from her and take care of him.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
