While I agree with his ideology on not using bit or any form of pain or discomfort inflicting tack I do not agree with his way of going about the whole thing.
First of all he is a showman and makes a lot of money - that is bloody obvious to anyone
Second instead of developing his system (which is derived from french Haute Ecole system) he just made it into a ridiculous religious cult with strict rules and regulations where people are not allowed to share or help others
Thirdly he dishes dirt on every single system and somehow presents himself as a superior Horseman
Fourthly he is a Hypocrite - in the past he was a stuntman for movies - he used very cruel ways of training horses- sharp spurs, whips and harsh bits. When he became "a Haute Ecole trainer" he rode horses all the time and made them do tricks and movements that are completely unnatural (with him on horses back). Now he says that that all that is wrong - contradicting everything he did. As I said - total hypocrite!
And finally - I just don't like him! His face, his image and his way of talking - and his horses to me on all the pictures look very tense- eyes white open, veins all swelled up - they look uneasy and scared!
I would never follow his system - to me he is not right!
