    The message is valid for those people and they are making up more of the market all the time.
    Isn't it true for many NH trainers?

My gelding is a real butthead to everyone but me. He's leadable, he respects space and all of that basic stuff, but they haven't put in the time with him to earn his respect and he lets them know it. After a hard workout, he'll stand in front of me, close his eyes and rest his forehead on my chest and heave a big sigh. He'll stand like that for a few minutes and then turn like he's ready to be lead. That's just his version of a hug, and it only happens every once in awhile. He doesn't do anything like that to anybody else.

    I think a lot of this stuff in the video is just common sense--of course, you can't make your horse feel safe with you even if you do all of these things. A horse is going to go on its gut instincts, and if those instincts say you're someone to be wary around, that's exactly whats going to happen.

    I know this is true!
    I have had a quiet and relaxed horse turn into a rearing,biting,and kicking monster in 5 minutes because of the energy that the PERSON was putting off.
    Seen it a bunch of times and I usually praise my horses for having such a good judge of character.

    I'll second that.... just ask the tow truck driver who was threating hubby and got too close to the fence. My old guy George who is a ***** cat took a chunk out of the guy.

    I've put this up before , but if your bored it's a good story and TRUE!
