    Oh my goodness... now I have heard it all. That [Fugly article] might just be the dumbest piece of "advice" I've ever read.

    Some people will never understand the psychology behind it, or would even want to for that matter. :roll:

    Well... I've NEVER seen the dominant horse being nice and tolerant if other horse approaches it with certain intention to bite. The dominant horse will either pin ears and try to bite first, or show her bum ready to give a kick. That's their psychology. If I'm not mistaking Parelli is one of those trainers who says "think like a horse and understand it's psychology", but this particular article just tells completely opposite.

    Try and get as diverse a range of stuff as you can manage, and then pick out the bits that work for you. Most of these top trainers will have something that makes sense to you and you'llthink wow what a great idea and go try it. The library or ebay ides sound great, this way you can get more learning for your buck. And don't forget Monty Roberts, he has some great stuff to say on horse behaviour which is well worth knowing :)

    I had a horse that used to bite me when I cynched. I would stand on one side of the fence and have her on the other.... Then one day she got me good, right in the hip! It hurt so bad I was so mad I grabbed her face and I bit her nose as hard as I possibly could... She never, NEVER bit me again.....

    That's Psychology by the way... I'm the alpha mare - NOT HER!

    It's one thing for an alpha horse to correct another horse......it's a totally different thing when a PREDATOR wants to correct a horse. Because horses are programed by nature to NOT trust people, when we try to correct a horse he ususally precieves that as an attack.

    Ok.. Here is the thing... God made us predators...and Horses are prey animals... No amount of horse psycology will ever change that. I am 100% positive that my horse will never look at me and say..."Oh goodie...here comes that 2 legged short faced alpha mare out of the house to feed me." That is rediculous! I want my horse to respect the fact that I am a human. I have thumbs and can eat you if I want. I want my horse to be nice to all humans. Humans are to be respected and given their space and they can mess with me(the horse) all they want and I just have to take it. Now as the human in this relationship it is my job to protect the horse from harm. Disipline and punishment are 2 very different things. Horses are flat out stronger and bigger and capable of hurting us very seriously, we on the other hand are smarter. It is our job to out smart our horses and use that to our advantage. I believe Parelli has an overall excellent program. I however strongly disagree with rewarding bad behavior.....no means no and a horse has to learn that. For our safety and theirs!
