Question Alexander Nevzorov?

So Im always open to looking at new training theories. I just stumbled on him the other day. Has anyone ever heard of him?
I really don't know what to think. He seems to be Very cultish. He has this big website yet I can't find anything about his training besides not causing pain with bits and such. He's supposivly a big thing in Russia.

I just followed the link, I'd never heard of him before either. I agree, he sounds really cultish. "The bit is a torture instrument"? It's only the hands on the bit that can torture.

If first impressions mean much, the method (or what little of it was described) doesn't impress me that much. Maybe there's more to it if you get into watching the film, or something, but his "review" of Monty Roberts really rubbed me wrong. I'm not Monty Roberts' number one fan, but is he a torturer? Never.

He's massive in Russia.
Which surprises me because not once have I seen a Russian compete at HOYS or the British Open. Not even at the Grand Prix' in Germany.
I've seen his videos, and I don't doubt he is an amazing horseman, just a shame he's based himself in a country with such a low equestrian rate.

Monty Roberts does put clothesline in horse's mouths....
To me, he's just another NH trainer that has the guise of doing dressage naturally. If you watch his videos, the horses are not properly collected or performing the movements correctly. They are doing tricks.
Meh, he's halfway around the world it doesn't affect me :P

Omg, just read the forum rules.
What a joke.
Must not support racing, jumping, eventing ect;?
Wth xD
Has he never seen people jumping bareback and bridleless?
I don't condone racing but still.
I think he's lost the plot a little bit...

he's a dude who is asking to be shot.

He practicly worships his horses and if no one is willing to follow 'his ways' then they shouldn't be owning horses according to him.

There are a few videos on youtube of him... and he's going to get killed one of these days by his own horses. They praticly lunge and bite at him since they get away with so much.

Not to mention half of the 'horrors of the horseworld' pictures are photoshoped or just of horses sneezing.... also he does too ride in bits, there have been videos of him and pictures too. He says that all his methods shown now are from without bits... but I highly doubt it.

Never heard that about Monty Roberts before... I'll have to do some more research. I lost interest in Mr Roberts when his trailering demo failed to completely impress me, and I don't like his Dually halter. Just no need for stuff like that.

I completely agree with your assessment of Mr Nevzorov. Having watched a couple of the Youubes, I see falsely collected, grain-high balls of disrespect. One of my horses ran up to me striking and biting like that and a bit would be the least of his problems...
