    This has popped up in my Facebook newsfeed several times today.

    ... I’m not even sure what to think, honestly. Totally at a loss.

    Horse is said to be a “bit of a Bronc” and some guy has the saddle pommel trussed up to a big tree branch overhead without slack and the guy gets on. The horse ends up pretty much swinging around in circles with only his hind hooves touching the ground.

    What on earth is the point of doing that? I mean I'm all for a variety of methods but I just cannot fathom that one.

    This is like tying up one leg and chasing them around until they give up fighting...
    Only with a human on top already.

    This didn't teach the horse anything, and especially didn't teach him not to buck. What an idiot.

    And judging by how the man slams on to the poor horse's back when he mounts, I'm sure there's a physical reason for the bucking.

    I saw this last night, reminds me of a combination of a carousel and the swing ride at an amusement park :rolleyez: No idea what he thinks he's accomplishing because it certainly isn't training
