Not sure if he's even been near a horse before let alone ridden one.
Generally horses are trained either using English or Western Style commands.
If the saddle has a pommel horn, it's western and you hold the reins with left hand (right hand can hold the slack, but control is done with left hand), move hand in direction you want the horse to go.
If the saddle has no pommel horn, it's English and you hold reins in both hands and pull with the hand that is the direction you want to go (left hand = left, right hand = right)
So basically he is riding a horse with a western saddle using English style commands and the horse is antsy because it has no idea what it's being told to do based on how it was trained.
Some people are impressed with publicity stunts to show he's a "Mans man", but when fail as badly as this because the person doing it doesn't have a clue, it's funny as hell.

The smart play would have been for the GOP in Alabama to figuratively kick Moore to the curb and start a write-in campaign. It'll be a shame if he gets elected as it sends the message that it's OK to diddle underage girls as long as you toe the party line.
