I am not in a good horse community either...
I have a friend who I was trying to teach her more about horses - exactly what you have described is true.
Only her way works, everything I am teaching her is wrong, I am hurting the horses, etc.
None of my friends are TRULY interested in horses. They do it because I am in horse and one of my "friends" is only in it to try and prove me wrong in everything.
Just stay away from people like that and completely ignore them. It may be hard - but we will all live much happier lives.
That girl who is "proving" me wrong with everything, has also randomly become an expert on how to train horses. All of a sudden she "knows everything."
Everything that is "correct" with her is actually wrong and doesn't help the horse at all. It is very funny when she copies me in my riding and handling, but for some reason her horse isn't listening because she doesn't realise how important her body language actually is.
