Hybrid horsemanship?

Ok? What the? The Tap? Is this a new trend like chihuahuas when chihuahua movies come out or dalmations when 101 Dalmations came out?

As you can see, I'm cooped up inside, watching youtube and wondering what the heck make people do the things they do in regards to horses.

Just fyi, I have never and have no plans to ever try this.

But if you have why? And what is the purpose? Is it really just to try to "skip" breaking a horse and doing ground work? Like watching a movie that you were suppose to read the book about? Taking the easy way out?

Please no flaming or anything..I'm just wanting to learn.

I started a thread about this a while ago so you might want to search for it. The man that started the TAP is apperantly a fairly well respected race horse trainer and if you listen to the videos that he made he says that he only uses it on horses that are about one step from the killer pen and only experienced proffesional horsemen should try it. I'm not entirely sure what it is that he even does and I'm not quite curious enough to spend the $50 to get the full instructions but I saw nothing tooo cruel about it and I didn't here him say it was supposed to substitute any training.

I saw parts of videos that explained just what you are saying Kevin, but I guess I wasn't actually talking about it in regards to those horses that are suppose to be at their end because they can't seem to be trained. That I can understand. There was even a video explaining that it's like rebooting your horses system.

I guess what I was referring to were the videos for colt starting that advertise no round pen and putting the "horses" controls on as you ride him using the hybrid horsemanship/tapping method. Their quote, "Raw Riding", colt starting without groundwork, getting on and installing the operation system from horseback.. ." Seems sorta like a cheat to me. Just my .02 worth.

I guess it's like any other method and to each their own.

Unless you got an explaination from Paul himself I would discount any interpertatiuon of it.

How come all of these horsemanship guys say that their approach is a common sense approach? O_O



... nvm. I forget many horse folks lack that trait!

On the other hand, I think it's Paul who has a siiiiick video on how to mount horses from the ground! Doesn't work for me, I'm not nearly athletic enough to try that n__n short legs.
