    Dont you HATE

    Ok don't you hate when your training your horse and someone steps in and tells you your not doing it right.. (not talking about horse trainers)
    Ok so my 3yr old TB doesnt lift her feet and that's what we worked on toady.. so she's tied and im just rubbing her legs and getting her use to me touching her legs.. so when I got her foot I held it up for about a sec and put it back down and I did it a couple more times.. then I held it for as long as I could.. She stomped it down (exspected) so I did that one more time she again stomped it down.. So this guy comes over and was ranting about shoving my thumb agaisnt a tendon and put the hoove in a lock.. so he was like here ill show you he moved me to the side his hands where on her before I could even say anything and my horse reared up when he tried "HIS" method.. I kinda laughed and was like hmm I like my way better.PATIENTS. It took me another hour but I clean all 4 of her feet (the guy watched the whole time and just smerked when I walked past him) lol

    This is why I love having my horse in his own paddock with no 'horsie' people telling me how to work him.

    I HATE when that kind of thing happens..I'm more than willing to accept help and listen to someone's opinion when I actually need input, but when things are going smoothly and what I'm doing is working for me and making sense to the horse, I don't need to do it the official extra special way! Why fix what ain't broken?
    I certainly know my own horse better than anyone who walks up in the middle of me working with him on something, anyway.
    People need to learn to be less pushy and see that there's more than one way to skin a cat.

    Grrr yes I was lunging my horse and the non horsie neigbour was watching.
    Because he doesnt really like to stop, it takes me a while to get him to stop but he does in the end.
    I was doing what I usually do and the stupid lady tried to call him over. I was like wth so now Buzz ws listening to her not me. But after ahile she walked away and it was okay, but it was soo annoying

    When someone comes up to me with a quick fix training method that "forces" the horse to do whatever, I say something along the lines of "I am training my horse for a lifetime, not just this moment........."

    I have NO PROBLEM with people (not trainers) telling me I'm doing something wrong as long as it's a person with lots of experience and the advice makes sense. For example, my neighbor (who is not a trainer, but a dressage rider with ~20 years of experience) from time to time tells me that I'm doing something wrong in my clues to the horse. While of course it's not very pleasant to hear you do something wrong, it helps a lot, because I re-analyze situation based on her comments and see what I can improve.

    I actually do appreciate when people give me advice..providing, of course, as kitten val said they're horse people and actually know what they're talking about. The non-horsey "tips" I get I kind of just smile and nod-they can't help that they don't know about horses...though it probably would be nice if they didn't try to be a know-it-all..But otherwise, I like to learn as much as I can and pretty much drink it all in.

    Yeah I agree with good advice but from HORSEY people Like these forums I have never met anyone in person from here but the advice people give me is AWESOME!! I don't even think he owend a horse he was just visiting the land owner!

    Gotta love being on a private yard xD
    The only person who tells me what to do (just advice really) is mummy dearest (:

    I can see how it becomes a pain in the butt though :/
