If it were a one off, I could maybe agree.

This girl is an idiot. I totally see that. BUT I am so OFFENDED that so many of you are talking about killing the horse! I thought we were all horse lovers, hence the horse forum... yup, he has issues. And attitude. And training issues. BUT seriously?! I know some of you aren't being serious but I am actually horrified you would joke about killing a horse. I am kind of new to the forums and I am scared to come back... this is awful.
I wasn't joking when I said I would kill it. I could never trust the horse again and certainly wouldn't want it in my pasture. I couldn't sell it to someone knowing that it already tried to take someones head off. I feel that there would be no other choice.

We are horse lovers here, but part of loving something is also realizing when to let go. That horse took the time to deliberately kick her in the head. That took thought and will to do so. He is dangerous and will no doubt lash out the next chance he has. She is not experienced enough to handle a horse like this and has no business owning or riding one. Around here these are the kinds of horses you find at the auctions going through the pound sale, and rightly so. It's possible for this horse to be "retrained" but it will require extensive professional training, and even then he would still be considered a risk in my book. His butt would be carted off to the next sale if it were me.

I had a friend that ALWAYS used a helmet AND a saddle when she rode and then one day she decided to get on bareback and was just having a blast cantering around the ring. She slid off the horse and it started bucking, and clipped her. That one really was an accident on the horses part. She broke I all kinds of bones in her face and spent 7 hours in surgery. It really does happen accidentally but I watched that video... over and over again and I honestly, whith out being mean, can not see the accidental kick... but I do see a purposefully well aimed kick....

I have been attacked by three family dogs in my life. Got bit on the face all three times. The first was my grandparents spaniel, the second was our first dog a rescue yorkie with food aggression, and the third was our second dog.
Every time I admit it was my fault, we as the more intelligent race have to act first and prevent these things. it is ALWAYS our fault. I would never consider putting any of those dogs down.

I'm thinking in the moment after a horse dirty kicked me in the head......yes I'd be in in a mood to pull no punches......a horse kicking someone in the head is a very serious offense.......however after watching her videos I actually am now starting to sympathize with the horse......he's been harassed beyond what's tolerable......

I'm just throwing this out there...In the end when the horse does kill the girl, most likely the horse will be sold to a meat buyer. Seen it happen too many times. And its the same thing, horse gets spoiled rotten and doesn't know what respect means.

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.

I do too, but I still would never be able to trust him again....I am really starting to believe she is abusing all her horses...she is pushing them way to hard.

Oh yes.....no trust there......he probably would've been a nice horse without all of her interference.....sad isn't it.....I certainly couldn't trust him, that move was dirty.....
