Doesn't number 3 contradict the other two in the guidelines?

You let the horse do what they want with no restraint, but no injuries?

Good luck with that.

Omg, the dressage section is hilarious!

The major points of abuse in so-called dressage are:
The use of unsuitable horses for dressage/riding e.g. coldblooded horses or too heavy and/or too tall warmbloods.
I guess no one told my trainer that her successful Grand Prix Percheron stallion was unsuitable for dressage!

I can't..... I just can't read it.

Based on not reading it, and just basing my opinions on the comments here, do they suggest that we just let our horse misbehave for the farrier if they feel like it, because sooner or later, they will stand still?

Wait, don't answer that, I don't want to know.

Sounds like more horses going to slaughter because they can't be handled to me.

Never saw so much BS bundled up into one website.
Browsed through the dressage section and was indeed, quite entertained.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Frank, I was just thinking that.
Grandpa step away from the medical marijuana and turn over the laptop.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I tried to read it --- I really did; But then, I discovered I was wearing shoes and not high boots and I did not want all of that poopy on my feet and legs. Reading all of the BS definitiely requires VERY TALL BOOTS. I'll just leave it for those of you that have tall eough boots on. Don't bother telling me how it went!

Hey, it's like Facebook for horses! You sit in the arena waiting for the horse to "Friend" you and you don't do anything that would cause the horse to "unfriend" you. In the meantime, the horse writes whatever he wants on your wall, but that's okay because he's learning, learning....

So, just as Facebook is successful in teaching people how to have REAL relationships with REAL people, this training method will teach horses what we want them to learn, too! I get it, I get it!

^^That's awesome.

But, FB is like prison too. You sit around, write on walls, and get poked by people (or horses) you don't know.

ETA: I just watched parts of the videos and in the words of Dean:

"I feel like I've got the crazy on me."

Now I need a bath.
