Endotapping to teach a horse to relax, what do you all think?

Hey all,

Well I just went to a clinic (my first ever!!) with Paul Dufresne, and he demonstrated endotapping, I was wondering if any of you use it in your training, and where do I buy a the whip/ball thing?

Here is a video that sums endotapping...

I guess whatever works, but I can do all of that without constantly tapping him. I know for a fact right now that my horse Gunther wouldn't tolerate this type of riding/training. The horses look like they tolerate it but it looks uncomfortable/annoying. What if for some reason they forget to bring the whip and ball? Then what? They don't have something to rely on.

You can probably make one, instead of paying $100 for a new one.

I have never tried it and probably never will. Seems like a bit much to me.

Wasn't there just a thread on this last week?

I don't think I'd ever try that . I know I sure as hell would get pretty pissed off if someone continuiously tapped me . There are many other ways to relax a horse .

No matter what they say, I think their method is just like desensitizing a horse to any other thing...you do it until the horse relaxes. I don't need a stick/ball thing to do that.

To me, the results just aren't worth the training. The traditional way of lengthening strides, stopping, etc. is just easier.

Seems a bit distracting. I've tried some goofy things on Nico...I don't think this would go over well...but best of luck to you!

Also, couldn't they have chosen some better riders to showcase the method anyway. Nearly all of them were either bouncing all over the place or popping the horse in the mouth every other stride.

I see it as just training a horse to react to a stimulus. You can do it with your hands and seat - to me it's just another gimmick to circumvent the proper way to train your horse.
