A horse friend I respect told me about going to a show where they were going to doing their "thing"...and in his wandering around, since he was there with horses, he was all over the place behind the scenes, he saw her riding the snot out of a horse, off and on he saw it being ridden for almost an hour. Hard riding too.
He decided to waste some time and watch the "demo"...lo and behold, what comes in the ring but the very same horse LP had been riding to death.
Only NOW? It is an unbroken, wild, dangerous horse that has never been handled in its life...and would the audience PLEASE make NO NOISE, NO MOVEMENT as it would be life and death for LP.
She did some of that worthless voodoo she do so well....and abracadabra!!! Presto changeo another PP miracle was born...and the horse was CURED!!! Riding AND trained...all in less than 30 minutes. Amen and pass the collection plate.
He was flabbergasted to say the least.
And all the rb/lb/in/ex deal? Mumbo jumbo to explain why their idiocy is getting people hurt.
Good horseman KNOW when a horse can be pushed or not...a horse that had to be left/right/in/outed in the wild? Would be dead.
Horses make me a better person.
