I was not certain if this was the correct place to start a discussion on the specific training methods of some the people that have been discussed here, and if it's not, I apologize.
As far as the topic of discussion, Suppling in this instance includes the methods specifially of Baucher. He seems to have been one of the first proponents of this method, and I have noticed that there a very many Natural Horsemanship people following in these footsteps.
What do you think of these methods? Is there merit in dissociating the head and neck from the rest of the horse? Surely it creates a very obedient horse, but at what cost?
Not agreeing or disagreeing with any techniques or trainer specifically, only interested in a real discussion about the good/bad of this technique.
