I appreciate the free gift. Thank you so much for posting this offer. I will be downloading it when I get home.

Rob, you are getting to the point with your comments where you are no longer contributing anything to the conversation and are being rude. If you don't want the book, don't download it, don't post, and move on with your life. No one is holding a gun to your head.

Rob I am 35 I have been around horse my entire life. I used to approach horses from a "passenger perspective" like many people do. I started to notice that lots of people no matter what "Master" they followed had lots of issues STILL when it came to their horses. I don't know everything about horses, I really don't think anyone does. I might know a lot about one particular horse and meet a new one that is absolutely different to work with. I have started a few colts in my time :) I have also retrained, refreshed and reworked older horses. I have been on lots of horses. This past summer I worked only with horses that had behavior issues that were extreme for the next project I am working on. Horses that were so bad no one wanted to even mess with them at all. I learned that by approaching, even a "bad" horse, with a firm, relaxed & confident stance (inside & out) you are listened too. Although they may charge you, kick at you, push you down, attempt to bite you, downright bully you...IF you stay calm, proceed with confidance, and maintain that firm leadership aura...the horse will listen. I got called out to quite a few homes and witnessed that even a horse that was very naughty for it's owner was delightful once handled correctly. I often left thinking "why did these people call me?" BUT the second I would hand off the lead rope to the real owner the bossy, ill behaved horse would return. So I want everyone to be able to handle a horse with confidence, that's the problem MOST people have with their horses. They fear them and horses being the extremely intuitive creature that they are take this as an invitation to walk all over the person. If you have been around horses you may know this...and that's great! Unfortunately not everyone understands that a horse is not just a great big puppy dog you can ride. Its about getting that key component confidence.

I agree with you whole heartedly rob...just cause you have a cookbook doesnt make you a chef :) Books are just a way to share information...thats all. I just wanted to help some people and some horses out. If you don't want to read my book I am ok with that too. :) no worries!

Your silly rob...i hope you enjoy. I never approached it with an "I am a God and know everything perspective" because I don't. I just conveyed what I have learned & what has & has not worked for me :)

Trust me, I have no intention of being your mother. Just telling you politely that you are being a donkey's behind for absolutely no reason.

I agree SEAmom. The behavior is a bit immature and condescending.

Herdbound, thanks for the book. I appreciate your sharing your ideas. We are ALL here to learn.

Rob, I completely understand your point. I know there are a lot of people out there without the common sense to realize that reading a book or watching a video on youtube doesn't make a trainer. Your later posts were rude and almost belittling when you started talking about your years working with horses versus the OPs. There was no reason for that. I had no problem up until that point. That's just when you veered from your original point and hopped on your soapbox. Again, it was unnecessary since you had already stated, more than once, your original point by that time.
