I use mainly CA methods but also a bit of all the method's I've seen except Parelli. We call the it the parrelliite cult around here. I didn't used to give much thought to him at all until I saw an owner giving their horse treats when they tried to bite while being cinched up. When I told her that wasn't a good idea she started going on and on about how HE said that was what you should do and how dare I contradict him. That was not the only stupid thing I've seen out of that program.

Mostly I just try to always use common sense when I'm around horses. That seems to be in short supply these days unfortunately.

I just wanted to comment on this method. I know that it sounds insane to treat a horse that is trying to bite you, but this actually worked with one of my mares. When I bought her, she had the bad habit of biting and kicking any time you put your hand under her belly or chest and I spent two years smacking her and yelling "NO!" only to have her get more aggressive with me. After hearing the treat suggestion, I thought it was nuts, but also thought I didn't have anything to lose because this nasty old mare couldn't possibly get any worse in her behaviour. In about a week of treats her attitude changed completely and she never really had a problem with me touching her underside again.

The psychology of the method is that the bite is just feed back on something you are doing. The horse is thinking "I hate it when you do that!" So when you reprimand them they still keep a negative attitude about what you are doing, but by treating them it changes something they feel is negative into something positive for them.

I'm not saying this will work on every horse in every situation or that it would always be my first course of action, but it isn't quite as stupid as it seems on first glance.

I could see that being used if you offered the treat BEFORE the horse threatened to bit. Mac does not ever threaten to bite, but he does bloat when cinching. I usually bring him a treat , give it to him just before raising the cinch. It seems to keep his mind off the cinch for that moment. If he threatened me, I would not give him a treat, I'd give him a wollop .

Monty Roberts. He just has such an easy way about him and the horses he works with and if the Queen of England trusts him with her horses, then I trust his techniques with my 7 year old haflinger :) I use his online university for tons of ideas on how to work with Sonny and so far, everything he said would happen has and Sonny seems happy with me too.

I voted "Other." If I were forced at gunpoint to choose CA or PP, I'd take CA in a heartbeat. The Parellis drive me bonkers, but at the bottom of the fluff and pageantry are a few sound techniques. I don't like either of their under-saddle work particularly...

I don't follow any one trainer religiously... I take what I like from anyone and everyone, and modify it if I get to the barn and things aren't shaking out right in practice.

I would pick CA. I actually went to a CA clinic with my dominant Appendix, and it was great for us because he was a pretty pushy horse. BUT my pony mare is sensitive and I just use very light, light pressure and cues. I don't need to be aggressive at all, and the guy that ran the clinic (wish I could remember his name, but I'll have to go look it up in my journal) said that you need to adjust the pressure for the horse, and with my mare just a *tiny* wave of the stick is all it takes and she's doing the right thing.

Parelli overall didn't work for me, but I have integrated some of his stuff and some stuff from other trainers, so it's like a smorgasbord of training stuff. I even do some Tellington Touch with my super sensitive pony to relax her.

I don't think one has ALL the answers, but I do let my friends that have first time horses use my CA DVDs because it is easy for them especially if they don't have the $ to spend on a trainer because they just blew it all on a horse, trailer, boarding, etc ... I saw something on FB about equine owners and one part said: "This is what my husband thinks I do." and it was a pic of someone burning a Benjamin. Yeah, I get that.
