What's with this trend??

I've been browsing instagram lately and I've found a startling trend.... Teens sitting Indian style under their horses with their heads between their horses legs! Then the comments that follow... "oh muh gawwwwddddd, you and your horze have such an ahmazing bond!!!". Yes, until Fluffy wants to stomp a fly or something.

Of course these photos are followed by other pictures of them riding their OBESE mini donkey and jumping bareback in you bra and underwear.

I'm thinking I should start a blog or a hash tag or some sort of collect.

That is the problem with so many of these Social Media sites and why the Horse Forums does not allow links and re-directs to them, so many crazies out there....

Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD. A little common sense seems to be lacking I've noticed. People treating horses like fluffy unicorns scare me.

That's crazy. Anything to get attention, I guess.

Yeah, as a teen on instagram I too have noticed this. To be honest I almost crapped a brick the first time I saw it, and then got cussed out for asking if that was dangerous (I'm aware it is, but I wanted to be gentle). The words that I was called should never be used by a twelve year old with a half dead pony that they don't know how to handle. It started out with a girl named Lacey jamieson, who was a 16 year old girl that trained a few horses. She did a good job training them, but she was the one that started the "let's do stupid stuff underneath ol nelly" trend. It is sad to say that this girl recently passed away due to unrelated causes, but after her death the trend EXPLODED. Everyone with a hoofed animal wanted to do handstands on its back in honor of her. I guess some parents just turn the kids loose with animals...

I'm so glad I was never that dumb as a teen.

They always say that the more things change, the more they stay the same. In my days, the guys would brag about how great a driver they were going 80 mph down the gravel roads in their new car that they worked so hard fixing up...until they met that big oak tree one day.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Ahhhh, I keep seeing everything kind of relate back to her.

In all seriousness I do find it rather alarming. And I've commented several times (ok, I'll admit I like stirring the pot) and asked if they thought this was safe only to get jumped on about me being jealous of that person and her horses "bond".

I've only done that once, and I was squatting. Hahah
My mare is great, but I'm still not going to sit under her. Anything could happen and I don't want to be in the ground when it does.

We do summer camps at my barn and a young girl, maybe 9, told me to go with her. She wanted to show me something.
she was riding Spring that week, QH mare bombproof, well trained, but she's a mare when she wants to be. She kicked my younger sister in the chest.
Well anyways I thought she wanted to show me something on the horse, but no. She runs back and forth under Spring and pulls on her tail from between her legs.
I obviously said for her to stop that, even though Spring is a good girl, that's still really dangerous.
And she said to me "no, we have a bond. It's okay. Lots of people do that all the time, I've seen pictures and stuff"

somehow she didn't get kicked that week.

Yup, I love my horse, we have a bond, he respects and trusts me, but there is no way in hell tha I am dumb enough to do that. You might as well run arid waving a red "KICK ME" sign lol.
