    Default Look who's back...our favorite "expert" horse trainer does showmanship too!

    Apparently her videos are still lingering on another how-to site...http://www.ehow.com/video_2365844_wa...-practice.html

    Well at least poor Rowdy looks like he's still hanging in there...and no splint boots!

    Default Join me in a moment of silence for Rowdy

    That poor horse. One day, he's going to impale himself on a fence post after writing a suicide letter in the paddock ground.

    I think Rowdy kept trying to tuck his tail between his legs... at least that was the least horrendous video I've ever seen of hers. Hearing her describe herself as an "expert rider" though always makes me cringe...

    Thankfully, all she's doing in this series is showmanship -- no riding.

    Does she not know she's a laughingstock?

    Poor Rowdy has yet again, proved himself to be a saint.
    I thought she was finally gone- but I guess that was too good to be true!

    She has to know that she's the laughingstock of the horse world.... but if not, maybe she'll stumble onto COTH and see for herself!

    Oh my...Just when you thought it was safe to learn about horsemanship...

    And check out this one:
    http://www.ehow.com/how_2192438_teac...r-command.html
    It's not Sarah, but it's equally scary.

    Praise the horse repeatedly for rearing on command. This will help to teach the horse to equate rearing with fun and to strengthen the bond between the horse and rider. Teaching a horse to rear on command will also help to eliminate the rearing behavior when the horse is afraid, which can be quite dangerous.
    Pull back on the reins to the point where the horse stops any forward movement. Use your legs to swing forward against the horse's body to stabilize your weight as the animal rears on command.
    Training...? No, I think this just pisses the horse off so much that he rears because he has nowhere else to go.

    Be careful not to give your horse the rear command by accident, which may cause you to be thrown unexpectedly from the saddle. Use a command that will not be confused with any other command.
    Because the command you told us to use is not at all like the command for the horse to back up.

    Seriously. People scare me.

    Do you think she could introduce herself one more time?

    I think it's automatic now. Like every time she begins a sentence she automatically says her little introduction. I do believe it's burned in my memory.

    I haven't seen her other videos. None of them seem to be online. Anyone know where to find them this is some good funny entertainment LOL

    I guess she is just a kid and her parents have no clue either about horses. This girl is going to get herself killed.

    If you search her name on that site there are a bunch of other videos.

    I now have something to amuse myself with tonight, as I missed these the first time round.

    At least she didn't appear inebriated in the few I took a look at.

    ValleyMiss, too bad you missed out on round one. We all learned how to (in)correctly put on "shin splint" boots - upside down and cranking them as tight as humanly possibly. And who could forget measuring a horse - by doing the "itsy bitsy spider" walk up his side.

    Dang none of them are online I have searched and searched. And I really needed a good laugh.
    What was the deal with the measuring video? I see people cracking up about that one.

    Lol- have you noticed how it gets duller every time she says it? Her older videos she would say her whole introduction "Hi, I'm an expert horse rider... blahblahblah" all enthusiastically. Now she just mumbles it.

    Here's the measuring video. You'll understand why we laugh.
