    Talk about setting a young horse up for failure. It’s a future tragedy in the making, she obviously hasn’t graduated from the basics that she would need to make her a successful riding horse, and each time she ditches her rider to applause, she gets one step closer to a final catastrophic trailer ride. SAD

        Yup , when she walks forward dig her with spurs! Good way to turn a horse into a bucking horse . Some stupid fun at the horse’s expense. 🙁

      Yeah, the horse wasn’t ready from the get go!!! Geez! And if I was the guy that got bucked off, I would get some new friends!!!

      There are so many things done wrong here I cannot even list them all. The person riding needs to learn how to ride as the horse really does not even know how to buck. They are teaching this poor horse so many bad habits and I feel so sorry for it. They need to find a professional trainer to undo what they have done and teach the horse right and also teach the humans about horsemanship. God help them all but youo cannot fix stupid.

        I agree wholeheartedly. Not only that, but there was no explanations or connection from the get go. The rider was too heavy, unexperienced and nearly was hurt badly. Cannot fix stupid.

      • Corin Linch

        As Ray Hunt said `People don’t have horse problems, horses have people problems.` Why is this fella wearing spurs on a green horse when he can’t keep them out of the horses guts ………… this horse was moving okay until he stuck the spurs in and then could not keep them out of the horses guts. Plus I would not consider this fella a horseman you can see that from the get go.

      • Eileen

        My semtiments exactly about the spurs. The horse was figuring it out when he jab the spurs into him. That was one of the many mistakes but the one that changed the horses experience to what might have been good.

      • Cathleen Trope

        The FIRST thing I saw were the big honking spurs.

        OMG. Like someone else said, too many things wrong to list. Where is this horse so that one of us who isn’t a moron can rescue her?

    • Keyser Horsemanship

      The definition of a true Horseman, is the person who can help each horse to maintain their dignity. This fella is clearly a rank amateuer and did everything wrong, the biggest mistake of course was wearing his ego on his sleeve. I feel bad for the horse

    • Horse Trainer

      WOW! This is a great example of “bad”. Starting a colt without the simple technique of ‘stepping up from both sides’ is exactly why this guy busted his ***. He skipped so many life changing steps, which is simply laziness. Honestly after seeing this, itll be a wonder if this horse ever see’s broke. The lesson here is to let people who are certified start colts. Especially if you want a horse worth owning.

        Umm, no, it’s not. Look at the best cowboys working today (Buck Brannaman, Clint Anderson, etc) and they would disagree with that statement to hell and back. Worked with a bunch of pen riders who would also disagree. That’s an ignorant statement.

      • Eugene Smirnoff

        If you think Clinton is a cowboy then you’ve never met him. He’s an entertainer, plain and simple. The guys in the video are idiots, but that doesn’t make Clinton a cowboy any more than it makes me a professional shuffleboard player.

      • Jessica

        Amen! Clinton Anderson is not a cowboy and is certainly not a natural horseman either. It’s like he took tom and ray videos and just repeated each step without regards for the whole concept. The result was not ok.
        These guys were complete idiots that know nothing about horse sense

        Not at all. They want something that can be ridden and trusted. Good groundwork and some respect would have prevented that mess.

    Cowboys have been starting colts like this for hundreds of years…..load and go thats the cowboy way. Now Im all about getting them confident and respectful of you before you climb on, but sometimes they blow its just horses…. Ive come off colts like this before, and sometimes all you can do is laugh….. This isnt clicker training people sometimes horses have to just be climbed on and rode off, what happens next is up to the rider…..

    Reply
    • Jane

      I don’t think that’s the point of what most folks are writing. And clicker training is just one of many ways that people teach animals. This guy had no idea what he was doing. No helmet, spurs, way to fat for the horse’s size. I could go on.

      And, just because something has been done one way for years doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. Hmmm, blood-letting, locking mentally ill people in chains, and on and on and on.

        Agree, this is not how it HAS to be. I understand that folks have been “starting colts like this” for centuries AND there are other things that can set the horse and rider up for success, like, lets not wear our big boy spurs, lets sack this poor scared horse out a bit first, lets do some round pen work, build trust (which clearly this horse does not have any yet) and then ride in a smaller space for a bit while the horse gets used to EVERYTHING you are subjecting him to all at once! Or how about we take things a little slower, one step at a time. Can YOU imagine being thrown into this situation? (and I say this with the assumption that this is true based on the horses behavior and response to things that he just wasn’t ready for this step yet). Let’s be smart about how we start our horses. Let’s be smart about the correct way to do this and it doesn’t have to be 100% rodeo. It is a relationship issue. It is a trust issue. It is about meeting the horse where he is at. And yes, I have started many colts and NONE of them have gone like this for a reason. end rant.

    • Diane

      In the Ol’ west the “bronc rider” was just that. He was rarely bucked down and if you watch you will see she didn’t start to buck until he started kicking her to go forward. He obviously didn’t know what he was doing and it shows. A real bronc rider would have just stayed in the middle of her and let her go.

When she did buck!! Boy though she’s got a good bronc future if she doesn’t make s good riding horse

      Certainly anyone, no matter how experienced, can have a ride like this…horses are horses and no matter how well you prepare them sometimes things don’t go as planned. I think what most people are trying to point out though, is that a good trainer will do everything in their power to set the horse and themselves up for success and that was obviously not done in this video. The guy had no idea what he was doing as far as starting a young horse. I am a professional trainer and specialize in starting young horses and re-training “problem” horses, many of whom have had their problems caused by people trying to train or start them who had no business doing so. Some of the horses I work with have seriously injured people or themselves…and that is no laughing matter. This guy could have been seriously injured or killed VERY EASILY. And now the horse could go on to hurt someone else. There is a reason for all the concerned comments and it is not because the people on here are egotistical or trying to put the people in the video down…it is because they have a legitimate concern because they have seen things like this go wrong in the past and have seen people and horses get hurt as I have.

      Well, I am an expert and have plenty of happy, successful horses to prove it. This is a horse site and it’s reasonable to say there could be many experts posting here. The rider in the video isn’t just stupid, he’s ignorant, and so are his laughing buddies. If this is the horses first ride, he is setting her up for a tough future. This isn’t funny or entertaining. This is how horses get ruined, how people get injured, and how, without a knowledgeable trainer to fix it, horses end up at the slaughterhouse. I guess the saying “you can’t fix stupid” really is true. Too bad the horse has to pay for it.

    I’ve known older horses that have started bucking, and got real good at it because they got away with it with peoe that hold tight to the ideal that gentle is the ONLY way. You can do all the ground work you want. but if a colt feels the need to stretch their legs and arch it’s back, NO OUNT of ground work is going to prevent it. It’s what they do. And sometimes it takes a person willing to weather that storm to make that colt a solid citizen. And that fact that you have NO clue about this particular colts breeding and precious handling give you NO right to judge. And since I don’t know any of you personally, your level of horsemanship, age, physical capabilities, etc. it wouldn’t be proper of me to judge you. But I get the feeling that you would sell a “bad actor” as opposed to letting him buck you off over and over because you’re afraid to spaml his bottom (that’s how a herd deals with rude behavior). And before you pass judgement on my comment, I’ve started warmbloods, Trekeners, Hanovarians, Connemara ponies, roping, cutting, and barrel horses over 40 years. And some no matter how much ground work and desensitizing you do, are GOING TO BUCK. This colt just might be one. And you may now or I. The future buy a broke horse that was like this at one time. So be thankful for guys who arent afraid to go through those storms so you don’t have to.

        There is a wonderful video in u-Tube that demonstrates that horses can buck like crazy. The gal in it is in Sweden. Before and after 4 years of her training. She stuck on him, and the 4 year later post shows a horse and rider in beautiful connection. Big, beautiful jumper. Horses and people part ways lots of times. it’s just what this guy was doing that results in the comments.

      I disagree. Ground work helps establish your leadership with the horse. Get their respect on the ground and you’ll have respect from their back. This horse clearly was not ready to get on. This horse might have been okay, but then he kicked him!

    Although I don’t agree with his method and he’s lucky he didn’t get killed because he rushed her I think people tend to forget some of the best broke, honest and long lasting horses were broke out this way before we turned everything into natural horsemanship in the last decade or so. Just because those of us who prefer a safer more sane approach now doesn’t mean this is wrong or abusive to the horse. Many trainers use spurs from day 1 too so that’s not really anything worth crying about. I do natural horsemanship and have plenty of negative opinions on the lack of preparation for this horse but I’m open minded enough to know that doesn’t mean failure for the horse when most ranch broke horses can’t even be tied up and are roped just to be haltered yet are way more broke than most horses I know and know their job once a rider is on their back and didn’t get that way with tons of groundwork and prepping first. Let us not forget what works for some may not work for others and doesn’t make it wrong or right just because its different. A good trainer once told me he would rather have a horse resist riding early on in some way then be perfect and never resist because that means they aren’t suppressing emotions and stress and those who never buck or react when started regardless of how much groundwork and prepping is done are suppressing emotions and often the ones who blow up when they hit 10 after years of competing.

    Believe it or not, some of us have worked with horses all our lives and have successfully gone back to the basics of ‘breaking in a youngster’ to repair the damage done by people portrayed in the video. Believe it or not, some of us have have taken on youngsters, done the ground work, long reined them, backed them and correctly and ridden them away without any reluctance from the horse.

    You could see the horse didn’t like the spurs at 49 seconds, then at 1:02 he really showed he didn’t like them. I think the rider did this on purpose to get a cool bucking video to show his buddies.

We have some the best horses around , best behaved and trained and in 35 years have never started one from ground work and never will . What work they do get before being saddled is from the back of another horse.

    Cowboys, y’all. They know horses enough to know what they can do and can’t and they know horses. If they pulled this the mare is probably such a bronc that this isn’t going to make that much difference anyway. Spurs can be used on a beginning colt if you know how to use them. Don’t get judgemental unless you know the deal- and unless you know cowboys.

    My blog Musings From The Leadrope says what I think about breaking colts.

    While I am in favor for good ground work & getting one completely broke before you step up – mainly because I don’t like to get bucked off- I do know there are good hands out there that will step up on one without all that. The difference is that they can ride it through.

    Bottom line, if you’re not going to put the time in you’d better ride as well as you think you do and be able to ride it through. If not, its not fair to the horse & their future. I don’t really care about the rider in that case– egos don’t belong on horses.

The horse is a 6 year old that went through numerous trainers an nobody ever had any luck keeping her from bucking. Their was more ground work done on this made than any of you people even know how to do! So before you all keep running your mouths maybe you should think that not every horse in this world is trainable or even ridable! This was a big money filly an bred to be the best so don’t think they didn’t give her every try in the world!

      Obviously YOU didnt see that he had spurs on and it was when he jabbed them in her that she bucked. and that is WHY she bucked. you dont start off a new horse in spurs.

    In answer to the original question. No, I do not find this funny. I’m not a horseman – haven’t ridden in over 45 years. I do, however, like things to BE funny…if they are purported to be. Good riding with a trick or two, maybe?

    to the people that say you dont need to do groundwork…well look at it this way, ok?
    Think about a herd and the Alpha. the Alpha obviously isnt ON another horse when it is demanding respect right? no the Al[pha controls the other horse and moves his feet on the GROUND.. so isnt it logical for us to do the same? move his feet forward backwards left and right? It is Perfectly logical when you think about a herd.

    Very nice little mare. As scared as she was, she was trying to figure it out. Right as he used those spurs one of the guys says “Just cluck to her” a second too late. Horses are incredibly trusting. If this little mare has a more experienced rider take just a little extra time with her she should be fine.

    I have made a living training horses for 15 years and that colt had been ridden before. A colt would have kept bucking and run off not stopped at the fence and walked off. The horse has a problem and maybe a big one. Is that the way i would have done it? Don’t know. Don’t know the history. It looked like a bar bet. I laughed. Good effort. Evidently the guy wasn’t big enough.

    This horse was set up for failure… obviously no ground work… and why do people feel they must wear big ass spurs to break a horse.. he stabbed the heck of of horse’s sides.. I would dump his ass to… wrong way to break a horse..

    Rode and broke a bunch of horses in my day. And I don’t care who you are or how much you know. This is a case of setting your typical arena cowboy up for failure and it worked. And I for one thought it was funny as shit. Nobody got hurt. Those boys knew she would buck. And the way she acted it definitely wasn’t her first ride. Ole fat boy learned his lesson and that’s that.

    What people like those really should do is riding on an electric bull . So no one get´s hurt but themselves.

    This is not for me. I try to celebrate working relationships between horse/human that show impressive communications and achievements. I find this to be just another example of an ordinary underachieving bully that lacks even the most minimal amount of skill. Too bad for the mare.

    Not funny, that poor horse is getting a bad start. That asshole deserved to be bucked off especially after digging in with the spurs. Twat
