found this video on youtube, apparently the horse gets really excited when he sees grass.. i have never seen a horse react like this :shock:

looking at her other videos, the horse certainly seems like a character lol

That girl is going to get her or her horse really hurt from allowing that. That is poor handling at its finest.

It's actually really sad because if that horse acts like that seeing grass, it likely rarely sees it, if ever...that horse needs a pasture to run in and is obviously relaying it to the girl who is oblivious. IMO

wow...

My gosh, I've never seen animal act like that.

Perfect example of poor handling right there. That animal looks like it was having a seizure o.o

American Justice-standardbred gelding great ground manners but when he sees grass he goes crazy becuase he wants to be turned out really bad!
Currently still at the track racing! <--- what the video description says... so im assuming from the way he acts when he sees grass, he doesnt get turned out at all o_O madness....

They both need a slap, if my horse did that round me she'd have a whip across her stomach, chest- whereever it hit.
The girl needs a shake and a wake up call... bit late shaking the rope at it now.. jesus and some people wonder why horses are 'dangerous' ARGH.

Thats not a pasture to small for him to streach hes a big boy and needs to run. i wouldnt think about putting my horse in a pasture that size (unless i had a mini) that lady needs a good smack so does that horse, he should never run around someone like that, shes a little late on disaplin, and she and the horse could have been hurt or worse. its unbeliveable on who owns horses and how they handle them.

The lady needs to be kicked, hard!! That horse needs to be turned out ASAP or else he's going to hurt himself!!! Why he didn't hop that measly paddock fence and head for green pastures I'll never know!
I don't think it's fair to "discipline" a horse who's freaking out because he can actually MOVE! He just needs to be turned out frequently for a long period of time and he'd quit that.

I don't see the horse doing anything bad. If I expressly allow my horses to run or roll on the end of the line, they absolutely know the difference between that and work / "at attention." I can call them back at any moment.

The lack of turnout, however, is cruel and ignorant...

I don't personally allow Duffy to roll in my sight, after working, I'll let her loose in the roundpen and walk away, ten minutes later she's ready to come in. BUT, if you can teach the difference between work/ at attention that is fine.. but looking at that video, the girl clearly has no idea whether or not she's letting the horse mess around, or snaking a leadrope at its head...?JMO

It's not so much the crowhopping and such that bothers me, personally- bubba, it's the fact that she's allowing it to act that way so close to her. He came very close to kicking her and stepping on her more than once. He obviously has no sense of personal space, and could easily hurt her if he wasn't paying attention.

Not to mention the 3 foot fence that's shorter than my mini's fence that has to be less than half an acre of pure mud...

honestly I thought the horse had EPM or something when I first saw him, what with all of the quivering and jerking around.

Wow, that's sad :-( And she knows what is going on, she says so in the description when she mentions how he "goes crazy" because he doesn't ever get to see grass and he really wants turned out. That's just like teasing him, IMO. grrrrr....

Did someone say he was still racing?

My guess is, a bigger paddock means he's going to run off his energy, which they want for the race, so confining him will conserve his energy.

I honestly had to stretch after seeing the video of him in his 'paddock' the poor thing has no room to run..
