Does anyone have the videos saved? I was talking with a friend about these videos, particularly the one about how to measure a horse, and she has never seen them. So I was hoping that someone still had them saved and could share with me.
ETA: Hmm, maybe not. I just searched her name and couldn't find them. Saw several of them in the past six months though. Don't forget the "spoof" video that someone (a COTHer, I think) did. Hopefully someone will post that link since I don't have it anymore.

There was a COTHer who had several of them saved, including horse measurement & "shin splint" boots, and uploaded them to Youtube the last time there was a thread about this. However, they do appear to have been removed. If that person still has them, maybe they can be reuploaded somewhere...
These videos are going to become part of the ways people define their Riding Era.
You have your people who grew up riding with hunt caps with elastic chin straps, your people whose junior years were all about Navaho pads and the advent of polar fleece, and your people who remember the Sarah Stetner videos from back when they were still on expert village.
Somebody please put them back on YouTube for the next generation.
Every time I see a lesson or camp kid putting on "shin splint" boots in the front, I think wistfully of Sarah Stetner... or when I see a poor sad QH limping mournfully around on a longe line wishing for death...
And some of you guys (Cothers in general) gave me s**t for trying to give a good easy horsemanship book to the clueless young lady I know. Hmph.
ETA ehow probably hosts their vids on Youtube because I can't get them to load either, darn it. At the very bottom of the page they do have a transcript of the dialogue - still just as bad as it ever was.
