Some of those things are not true, but I am glad she takes pride in her sport.

Thank you AKPaintLover and Gottaride. (I ride western! Its different than stock horses, but I've ridden a paint western once.. It was really neat he was very very light. I was thinking about taking a couple lessons for the experience.. but probably when the weather warms up.)

some of those things are not true, but I am glad she takes pride in her sport.
What exactly did I say that wasn't true? A lot of it was my opinion, true, but it was backed up with fact.

About how you get horses 'exited'. I do natural horsemanship and that is just a way to get a horse nervose.

Well then that's your opinion and this is mine. It does not mean I lied, I stated my opinion and it was backed up by fact. Natural horsemanship is good and fine if that is what you like to do, and you certainly don't see me starting threads calling it "dumb," "weird," or anything else. I thought natural horsemanship was about communicating with your horse in a way that encourages a partnership and is free of the negatives of normal human bias and judement normally found when training horses. (i.e. This horse is stupid because it doesn't understand ME, the natural horsemanship approach would be to understand the horse and communicate with them that way? No?)
Well my point is you should approach humans in the same non-judgemental and unbiased way. As long as it does not infringe on your rights or the rights of the horse (which it clearly does not, no matter how much you think or will it.. shaking a little plastic bag to get a horse riled up does not induce physical harm, not to mention the horses see the plastic bag on a daily or weekly basis. They know it is their cue to add a little enthusiasm to their work. I've seen horses spook and if the horses were truly afraid of the plastic bag.. why would they return to their owners with nothing but kind hearts and kisses?) you should not post things that are bound to get people upset.

The USEF would step in at the first signs of abuse if it were common to one discipline and stop it or place strict regulations. Instead, in their magazine, they have articles and pictures celebrating the athleticism and beauty these horses offer us. If you want a cause, support the Premarin mares and babies, or stop horse slaughter.. I can assure you that my horse who is snugly tucked in his or her heated stall with 4 inches of shavings with plenty of treats and bran mash on sundays and pleasantly plump and turned out daily and loved and kissed and groomed and ridden and taken out on the occaisional trail and loved is a far cry from abuse, even if he/she has to work once in a while. I can assure you that most of these horses don't need or want your support because they are perfectly happy doing they're job. =]

Whatever, I allready told you I didn't care that you did that. I just have certain veiws becuase I am a horse trainer and natural horsemanship is more than you think.

I actually know quite a bit about natural horsemanship. To some degree I practice it with my horse. But a couple of friends of mine do it and are much more dedicated to it than I am. I know I must be the antichrist.. a saddleseat rider who practices natural horsemanship? But really anyone successful in the horse business has to communicate with horses in a way that is productive, so it has to be in a way they understand.. But I'm going to drop this thread, since your arguments are not founded by fact and you have no experience riding saddleseat, only the biased opinions you formed when watching someone who was not a true representation of the sport. I'll keep my open and mind and leave you with yours.

I AM open minded, we were just fine discussing saddleseat, and I was acually learning some things about other peoples veiws till you came on and had to act like your opinion matterd most. I don't care I don't want to fight anymore.

Mods please lock this thread.

An open minded person does not start threads with the title you've chosen for this one. An open minded person does not say things like you've said all throughout this thread. Here are just two examples of what I consider very close minded thinking:

saddleseat ppl are mean, cruel, and hard headed
Every horse person has that breed, style, or trainer they don't like.

And to add a comment to the above, I think a true horseman shows appreciation and respect for every breed, riding style and other horsemen. There are very few horsepeople in this world....the rest are just people who own horses.

I am not sure I have seen any reason for a moderator to lock this thread???

People have stated their opinions (which differ amazingly), but no fowl language or cruel remarks have been made.
    12-18-2007, 05:49 PM
Modds please lock this i'm tired of fighting.

EVERYONE HAS A HORSE THEY DON'T LIKE! They had a whole dang thread about what is your least favorite breed, and how do you guys know? Maybe I HAVE tried saddleseat, and I HAVE been around saddlebreds, but you guys are too closed minded to listen!

Whooo....'letting out anger'
Okay I'm fine :roll:
