The video reminded me of when I teach the wee kids... one of the 5 year olds will sometimes do this little scoot/hop in the saddle to try and will the horse to move...
I have one of those too. Maybe I shouldn't have told her not to do that...she might have gotten my ancient lesson horse to piaffe! Who knew?
That must be one of his super-special methods used only for teaching the non-warmblood...
Dies anyone else find it odd that "Kelly" refers to him by only his last name? If I have a trainer I like and respect, I'm going to refer to them in public as "Mr. Trainer" or "Ms Trainer," not just, "You just don't understand Trainer's method, you uneducated slob..." Most riders refer to their trainers as "Mr." or "Ms." or by their first name. That struck me as odd...
So, note to "Kelly:" if you're going to play the houseguest, at least do a better job of it...

Reason: Minor addition
Twas a week after Christmas and all through the 'net
Was talk of a trainer, as bad as they get
His video horrid, that poor Peronace
His art not good, he's no Liberace
But his mouth was big, his words all lies
Of greatness, of skill, all stumbling tries
Because the one thing this schlep didn't know
Is how far horsewomen are willing to go
They don't like liars who make false claims
They'll check out the facts, these curious dames
So I'll tell you Nick just give up the fight
You reek of fraud, you're just not quite right
Might I suggest you go back to school
So you no longer write like some blubbering fool
And take a trip to a trainer near you
They just might teach you a thing or two
And remember always when you tug at that bit
That's a thing you do when you ride like chit.
