Politely, of course.

Honestly, I know that's the way they make money...but you guys ever consider the possibility that the owner could have been enough of a PITA that the CA people tried to drive her away? "You know...your horse CAN die during training "*crosses fingers* *please, please don't say you want to come!!!!!!"*

Just to throw a wrench in this. Also, I know I can't be the only potential employer that has tried to scare employees away, just in case they were there for a lazy position.
. . . Judging by CA's "statement", I don't think he or his employees would have minded kicking the woman to the curb outright. So I don't think they foresaw any issue with her.

. . .

This is the song that doesn't end.
Yes, it goes on and on my friend.
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And they'll continue singing it forever just because . . .

Lol, I can't imagine too many bosses that would be happy knowing an employee was trying to unsell the business! ;)

Either way, I was just trying to throw a different thought into it

And agreed, it's a song that never ends. Seems like there's a lot of people accusing others of being rabid followers, when it seems like CA has a lot more rabid HATERS than lovers...

Oh and people who read selectively.

My BO didn't want to work with a stressful, crazy witch, so she told her the things that would SCARE HER AWAY.

I didn't want to work with lazy employees who were looking for an easy job to sleep at, so I asked them questions and told them things that made me look like a difficult person.

If the peons at CA's told her that her horse "might die" (that's a big IF...we don't know what was said, nor WHEN IT WAS SAID, nor in what context), they may have been trying to scare away the potential pain in their butts. That's all I was saying.

Unfortunately, you seem to have missed my point. =(

And again, sadly, the disclaimer that I literally have no clue who this guy is, except for that a lot of people think he's a big deal?! I didn't even know he was an Aussie, but having some Aussie friends..I guess that explains his statement a bit!!!! LOL
No I get it. It just sounded very unprofessional for someone like CA-- I would like to immagine he runs a very professional facility and would say something like 'i don't think your horse is right for this program' then explain why he thought so and maybe give an alternitive training session or point the owner in the right direction?


Ha! You coulda just spat on the floor by their feet then said 'we don't hire sissies'



I get what you was sayin-- juss givin my opinion.


Im going to go ahead and assume you're joking? I've heard of him for years before watching any videos on the internet.. reminded me of the movie the horse whisperer.

No, literally, I have heard his name before, now I know he's Australian...and I looked up his site to see JUST EXACTLY WTH he was offering for all that money!

Lol

I don't watch TV. I don't have cable. I read, but a lot of the time if I see a big name trainer attached to the article, I skip it. I'm not training my own horses anyway, and if it's not pertinent to me not giving them bad manners, then I don't care yet. ;)

I guess I don't understand the rabid hype for/against certain trainers? If it's useful, learn from it, if it's not, everyone is free to ignore it...There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say. /shrug.

Either way, it seems like from this thread, his detractors are louder than his "fans"....
