Lol I was just in a huge discussion about thing in another forum.Thier where some Friendship trainers there trying to tell us how bad other methods are and that you can't be nice to a horse using any other.
They mostly use shaping then add "hugs and kiss", and claim it is a new thing they came up with.

The sadist thing is that they don't believe in castration and claim that is will "confuse the horse of his gender"

So in essence once again the friendship training is not all about the horse as they claim. The human is still deciding what, when, and where the direction and time the friendship will evolve.

Truly the only way is to cast off the perils of human society and run free with the wild horses. Only then can you truly bond with that equine spirit.

(I've decided to go the route of the Arabic nomads and have my horses sleep in my tent.. I mean house)

PS. All of the above is not directed at you Beling. Some of it are just rambleing thoughts of a crazy horse woman who needs more sleep.

Obviously I should feed Deva to the dogs since the fact she's a Percheron is soooo unacceptable. I bet if I told her she would feel depressed and go cry in a corner, AND she wouldn't want to be my friend anymore. :roll:

I agree absolutely! The way I see it, most of us would NOT want to be a REAL friend to a horse, as a horse is friends: horse friends are pretty much inseparable and we'd have them calling after us every time we leave.

But I do get annoyed when people brag about their power, superiority over horses. Fortunately, in most cases it isn't true (we're more like their slaves).

I have not read all the replies here, I went to the website and looked about for a while, then later did not recall seeing anywhere about ordering/buying anything from it. It started me to wonder if this is possibly NOT a 'real' site but rather someone's Thesis or something like that, and maybe incorporates something of a spoof on NH in itself.

This explains why my horses are constantly falling on me... Too bad my pee- size (not to be confused with "pea" size) brain couldn't come up with this logic itself.

Try to keep that fact in your pee- size idiotic brain the next time we ‘go out alone’ carrying some idiot on our back that; (1.) Makes us feel clumsy and unbalanced.

Has anyone got to the "We do not castrate our stallions." part? good idea... good idea!

My gelding still seemed pretty sure of his gender when the mare in the next pasture went into season...
