Surely that's why the intelligent discerning rider questions everything they read or hear?
I wouldn't expect someone that's just starting out and getting most of their knowledge second or third hand to know as much as people who've been around a lot longer and gained real life experience from working with many different horses and many different instructors and situations
That's not to say that new methods and thoughts aren't worth consideration, if people didn't keep striving for something better in all walks of life then we'd all be stagnating in the Dark Ages
