I actually had a pony do that to me when I was ten. Stood right up and fell back, she didn't jump like that horse though. One thing I've found out
over the years is that all horses are different just like people. When a horse doesn't want you on them they usually will find a way to get you off.
Maybe the lower strap was to tight, I've seen that before.Crazy video!
that's nucking futs! it really looks like it's trying to backflip!? i think now that we have machines to perform labour and cars and bikes for
transport the horse is kind of redundant (on most terrain anyway).
I've lived around horses most of my life and I can tell you that horse was *angry* and annoyed. It's pinning its ears back, making jittery movements
and giving all the warning signs that the rider was about to get bucked. Good video, though.
I've seen this happen at rodeos. Check out the end of this video.
Edit: I wonder why he keeps whipping the horse in the video the OP posted. Perhaps he intended to make it rear up when the music pauses. The horse,
however, had a different idea. Liftoff!!! Take that jerk!

Good for that horse!!
As for the caption,
Hit me again Pancho, I dare you!!!
Unfortunately they probably put this beautiful horse down for one reason or another.
But the horse did the right thing I'm sure.
