I just saw this youtube video and I was wondering if anybody had looked into it. The video is kind of vague.
If you have broken young colts, the first few times you might experience this same thing. He is not trying to make the horse go down. It is a reaction to tightening the girth.These people look like idiots to me. I dont want a horse falling down like that anywere near were I am standing. These people are most likely pinching a nerve
I have seen it numerous times. The last 2 I started got really weak in the front end and attempted to go down. Since they were in cross ties I pushed them side to side to get them to take the weight.Interestingly I have seen horses that are "girthy" do this on there own when a girth is tightened. Not just young inexperienced horses but some of various ages.
Just is a bit funky to me.
