How did you arrive to the conclusion that it doesn't make a horse better, safer or handier? Isn't that subjective? To some people a horse that you can work with at liberty is better than a cutting horse, or a dressage horse or a reiner or whatever else. Not everyone can or wants to ride and liberty training is the extent of what they can do.
How is engaging in what even you admit may be a fun pastime useless and non productive if the whole point of a fun pastime is FUN?
Some people like to engage their horses differently, or more in depth than you can by riding and groundwork.
It's fine to have an opinion on something but why bother to try to post against something, which may dissuade someone from giving it a go, if you've got nothing more than that you don't like it? Posted via Mobile Device
