    I've seen Mark Rashid doing a clinic and there was nothing airy fairy about him at all - he rides using a bit - he just doesn't like the Tom Thumb bits and he's very firm with his horses. He also has a good view on the role of the alpha horse being the one the others want to follow because they trust in it and need a leader.
    Carolyn Resnicks methods are pretty standard and the results look OK to me - the stallion in this video (at the end of it under saddle) had only had 7 rides on it - better than a lot I've seen that have been working for longer.
    There's nothing wrong with trying to understand why horses behave in a certain way - helps correct issues a lot faster and there's nothing wrong with training horses in a way that they do as asked willingly and happily because you've taken the time, expertise and patience to get there - much better than ending up with a horse that's sour and begrudging and doing everything it can to avoid work - spooking, herd and barn bound, bolting, rearing, bucking

    Giving any animal the leadership role puts a strain on them because they are constantly on the alert.

    I like all the Mark Rashid books, he strikes me as being a very honest man and not afraid to admit his mistakes.
