    Default Need to find you tube video

    About a year ago there was a video posted on here the topic was something about bad riding.

    It was of a British women riding a grey horse that looked like a maniac. The women would do some sort of scissor kick / fling herself out of the saddle over each jump to supposedly "take weight off the horses back".

    I've been searching on here and can't find it, does anyone remember it ?

    If it's the one that was making the rounds here it was actually an Argentinian man riding. Let me see if I can find it

    yes, here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opMiCyoRzYM bad music now. Back when they first posted it it had "I believe I can fly" and it really was quite funny

    here is the original h/j forum thread http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...ht=awful+video
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    Thumbs up I loooove the grey horse Tutein!

    I have never seen this horse! I think he's absolutely fantastic. What a great stride, the way he reaches out in front of him at the canter! Can't comment on the girl's style though. You may not like it but she was jumping Hickstead and that means she must be doing something right...I usually have respect for riders who are jumping the big courses and unless I have gotten on the horse and proven I can do better, I usually try to keep it to myself..
    Anyways Tutein is great!

    Woo - that ride got very ugly at the end. One of the reins broke, good riding on her part but man . . .

    That horse looks like an absolute *&itch to ride. I can't imagine riding a horse that pulls on you (and that you pull on) SO hard that the reins break. Terrible, terrible, terrible...I don't like his jumping style either - flat, like an arabian that's totally out of control. She's obviously a very good rider, with a very odd style. I'm glad no one was hurt.

    only watched the first video so far but I have two things to say

    1: Suddenly I'm proud of my riding...and have hope again!
    2: If I were that horse, I'd have lain down on the rider and refused to move. YEESH

    The man hasn't got a clue how to jump and shouldn't be jumping until he learns better.

    I think the woman is a pretty darn good rider with a bit of a strange style on a seriously difficult horse. But if you watch she's not catching him and lands in good balance every time and this is a horse you really have to ride the snot out of, looks like. And that was some bit of riding at the end there. Wow.
