No New Barn For My Horsey! :P

Well most of you know, I was suppose to be moving my horse to a new stable. Well this place charges $455 for just the stall! For you horse to get grain, and hay you have to pay about $50-$60 bucks more!!! And I was hoping to take lessons there which cost $65!! Worming, farrier, and vet is more money!! Well that's not the only reason i'm not going there. When we got there they brought a horse out and I took a lesson and all but this horse was the worst mannered horse I've ever met!! When I went to clean the other side she would lunge at me trying to bite, kick out, try and push me against a wall!!! And all they would do is be like no no no and give a small little tap I was like what the?!?! All the horses are aloud to do that! They do some natural horseman ship but they take it over the top! They only ride bareback which I really loved but the horses throw there head up and everything else. And everyone there is pretty snobby. So the no name person is NOT aloud near my horse and im keeping a REALLY close eye on them.

Wow. They're pretty dumb. Natural horsemanship is good and everything, but when a horse tries to bite and lunges, you need to take control! All those horses probably think that they're the boss and no one can touch them. And $65 for a bareback lesson? I don't think so!

That is insane. I didn't even know there was such a thing as "bareback lessons".

You poor soul.

Yeah, even in natural horsemanship you have to be agressive. Natural horsemanship is about speaking the horse's NATURAL language and horses are not always nice. They punish each other. In join-up, which is natural horsemanship, you have to run the horse away before it can come to you. Those people don't know the first thing about natuarl horsemanship.

I think natural horsemanship is a touchie subject. Some of the things done don't make sense but I will say a lot of it works and beats some of the "training" methods used.
