When I use caps, it's for emphasis, it's not yelling, & zillions of others use caps likewise, in their posts, so please don't pick.
Amazing that y'all are indirectly criticizing Ray Hunt & Klaus Hempfling for crouching when they sensed it'd take pressure off the horse (Ray got on his knees, to be exact)! Come to think of it, I also saw Leslie Desmond, Bill Dorrance's student, get on hands & knees with a particular horse, in a clinic of hers, & she's certainly no slouch in the horsemanship department.
I know that many here have no prob bashing Parelli, but Ray & Klaus are so well-respected by so many, including Parelli bashers. That goes for Buck Brannaman, too, but he learned a lot from Ray & so if Ray's getting on his knees that time was nonsense, it begs the question, "What else of Ray's was nonsense?", & "What then, of Buck's is nonsense?"
Maybe it's just that Hallowe'en is tomorrow.
