    It sounds like you don't want to learn from them, How do you know changing how you treat your horse now, to how they treat horses, is not a better way ? If they allow their horses to bite and not be reprimanded, why would you want to go there ?

    My horse is happy being treated how she is now, why would I change it? I'm happy to learn, I just don't want to be forced into working with my horse a way that I don't want to because they don't like it.

    So don't bring your horse?

    Honestly, it's one month. TRY the things they are asking you to do. No one says you have to continue to do it and if your REALLY REALLY against it just politely say no thanks. They run an apprenticeship for a reason. If they had no what they were doing I doubt they would be in business, never mind offering you an apprenticeship!! For once, OPEN YOUR MIND UP TO A NEW EXPERIENCE!!

    I always try new things and I'm not going somewhere without my horse, it's for 2 years. The 1 month is just a trail. I'm always open to trying new things but why would I want to go somewhere if I'm not allowed to work with my horse how I want to.

    Why would you want to? Oh, I don't know, maybe to expand you horizons?

    On second thought I don't think you should go. Let someone who will appreciate the opportunity to learn and work.

    Whatever. You don't know me and my horse works well with how I work her, why change that? As you said on another thread "why fix something that isn't broken?". It's not like I'd completely disguard any help given or suggestions but I'm not going to change completely jusy because someone wants me to.

    When you go to these apprenticeships it's about learning something new. That's doesn't mean what you were doing is wrong or not effective. Nobody wants you to change, but by doing something like this your asking to want to learn new things. I wouldn't enlist the help of a dressage trainer for dressage lessons if I had no intention on listening or doing the things she says. Personally, I've very much pro cross disciplinary/technique training. While I don't do dressage it's very helpful for reining. A barrel horse may not do reining but can benefit from reining work. I dislike doing Parelli, but It sure did teach me a lot about pressure, release and timing. You can add or tailor some of their techniques and into yours to optimize your own.

    That is your opinion, but I don't think SS is being rude, I think what she is expressing is frustration, I feel it as well from reading the Op's responses. I don;t know you, as far as I know this is the first thread of yours I have come across (memory for names etc is shot, so I maybe mistaken) but all I read is push back.

    You go for an apprenticeship, working pupil or student position to learn, which means trying new things. If you don't like what you see and you don;t like the way they handle their horses, don't go, because you should only go and apprentice to people who make you go "WOW, that's what I want"

    If there is enough there that you want to go then do the months trial, see how you get on, away from home, no other young people, different way of working with horses, and then decide. Of course you should be adult enough to have a conversation with them about the way you want to handle your horse, but please bear in mind that when he is in their stables, he becomes a reflection of them, the pair of you in public are representing the stables, so they have an input!
