    I disagree with that, see the whip? That suggests that the guy getting attacked was more interested in making the horse do what he wanted than listening to the horse and figuring out how to ask.

    I agree the second one as well. The first one has a main picture of a girl leading a horse out of a snow covered field by just a rope over its neck while surrounded by other horses - that looks mildly dangerous to me.
    Dangerous? Maybe. Only if proper groundwork has been neglected and trust has not been established. I have done that plenty of times. If the horses' attention is on the handler (like it ought to be), there should be no issue.

    I know I'm chiming in a bit late, but I thought I'd add a little blurb on my opinions.
    I don't subscribe to the idea that "love love love will always be the best way". But I do believe that it's vital to listen to the horse, build trust, and always think outside of yourself.

    The first trainer looks better if you're looking for a personal horse that you'll be riding indefinitely. However, if you want a push button horse that says yes ma'am and yes sir to anyone and everyone (lesson type), the second might be better.

    Those two things aren't mutually exclusive, you know. Any good trainer can train a horse to be obedient without losing their fire or personality. As for whether a horse will be a "says yes ma'am and yes sir to anyone and everyone (lesson type)" depends solely on the horse's temperament as no amount of training, good or bad, will make a fiery or stubborn horse suitable for "anyone and everyone".

    Every horse I've ever seen that was trained with love, like the first website proudly claims to do, has been a spoiled, obnoxious mess with a craptastic attitude. Just because a horse is obedient and trained "traditionally" doesn't mean that they are broken or sullen or robotic.
