One good thing about him - at least in the part of the world where I live, he was one of the first to start talking about natural horsemanship. It was him, through whom people in Latvia and other Eastern - European countries got to know about Parelli, Anderson, Hund, Dorrance and others.

He demands adherence and obedience to the one and true only way of the Nevzorov Haute Ecole.

He's a narcissist and a nut job.

I'd love to read his book. Our north american Indians rode their horses with no tack for a long time, turning their horses with knee pressure, weight shifts, etc. often at a dead run. The leather thong around the bottom jaw was used as a lead shank only. When I began playing with a horse at liberty (I say play because it's not work), it was an eye opener. The more I learned and did with my horses, the more I began to question what I'd been taught years before. Not to say it was wrong, just that there may be better ways in some aspects. Big difference when your horse wants to be with you rather than has to be with you. Many horses will approach hoping there is feed/treats yet will often leave if not forthcoming. A horse that wants to be with you will stay.

I remember you can only subscribe to his website if you sign a policy that you agree with him on everything (I don't remember the exact words, but something like that). WOW was all I could say... Clearly I didn't subscribe, and I'm not interested to watch a person who's way is the only way. There are so many awesome trainers out there that it just doesn't worth it IMHO.

Yeah agree he's narcissistic, but IME a lot of 'gurus' & instructors are like that, so if you discount everyone with that attitude, you're cutting yourself off from lots of good stuff too. I guess they're so passionate about their opinions that they can't see that other methods may be fine too. I think that Nevzorov is more about the attitude & mindset, not techniques & methods, that you can learn anywhere, any way.

Oh & kitten, just noticed your signature line & that's sort of how I feel about various different people & their specific opinions - it's not about waiting for the storm to pass or only visiting in 'weather' that suits you perfectly... put on a raincoat, so you can ignore the worst of it & enjoy it all!

None who are the "my way or the highway" have a wide following, at least in hunters, jumpers, and dressage.

Hey, whatever floats your boat. I want nothing to do with him or what he proposes.

No, Parelli for eg doesn't have a wide following. In other walks, KC La Pierre & the likes doesn't either.

I'm sure he probably does have some good basic ideas in there somewhere....if you are willing to take the time and you are able to sort through all the hypocrisy and ranty-ness.

For example, riding of any kind is strictly taboo for being "too hard on the horse's body", but asking a horse to do things like this over and over and over and over again isn't hard on him?.......

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sod his beliefs... he can keep them. The only thing I will take from him is his arena. Stained glass windows! In a manege! Stained glass!
