***rant***

There is this chick on FB and is calling me an animal abuser because I ride horses, use a bit, and thinks it is unimaginable to even properly use spurs, shoes, and whips. She is some weirdo I tell ya. They are even against CORRECTING your horse when it puts you in danger. They are COMPLETELY against showing. Calling bits sadistic when horses don't even mind them. Her "about me" spot on her page says all this BS about "i don't want to hear how good your horseback ride was or how good your horse reacted to conditioned responses or how terrible your horse is". What do you think? Here is their website...Welcome to www.horsemanshipwithoutharm.com. They have some good points but I still think they are a bunch of crazies.... So yeah, tell me your opinion!

We had a "crazy" lady at our barn a couple years ago and she went into a "break" so to speak and told us if we didn't take off all the shoes on the horses, got rid of the bits and saddles, jumps, whips, and other misc items she came up with that she would call the police. I can blame her mental state of mind, but for others its really a matter of a difference of belief. Its not really worth me getting upset about it because its not like I can change their minds. People will agree to disagree constantly in the horseworld, hopefully.
My advice to you is to block their posts so you don't read them. Then go about your own life and what makes you happy and continuing with what you believe in. Sometimes people choose different paths but it doesnt necessarily make it a wrong one. Its just what works for them, which is okay. Everyone is different.

In riding, a horse's energy is like a river- guided by the banks but not stopped by them.

How do you know her and how many horses has she trained? Looks like a website she set up with no real information of value. I think most people that deal with horses have a deep respect and compassion for the animals. Thats a nice thought to deal with horses in a completely non 'abusive' manner; however, if a horse puts you or someone else in danger then I think discipline is fair action.

Does she even ride horses anymore? I just saw a few pictures of a girl with a horse and one donkey.. ?

She "trained" 3 horses recently (her own). She used to ride and now wishes to "heaven and hell" that she never did. Discipline is a fair action. They look at horses as equals which is a HUGE mistake. Horses were put on this earth UNDER humans. If they see horses as equals, they must have hellians for kids because they would not discipline them either which is wrong.

There is not one page of that web site that shows anything, just words and a few photos. Yet the one photo of the white horse and the lady, looks to me like the horse is trying to bite the stick or whatever it is.
She just talks words and says nothing.

I had a lady like that at Toni's barn....She caught that idea after she had a nervous breakdown and discovered she was Schizophrenic. We called her Crazy Shelly.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Hehe, I couldn't help but have a little giggle. People like that make me laugh. Normally I just state the obvious about how disciplining is fair yadah yadah, and then proceed on with my day. Nothing really to rant about.
