NOPE!! He doesnt educate them at all on how to use spurs!!!
The mare is also very spooky! But now she goes at a fence like an idiot, gets very flat over the fences as she is galloping away from the spurs!! She is then hitting the bridle on the other side of the fence and throwing her head back and almost stag jumping in the air between fences!
The only difference is that now the mare doesnt spook at fillers etc because she's too busy running from the leg! It rediculous!
Its a yard full of 14-20yr olds who think the sun shines out of this guys arse! But the problem is his answer for everything is to bit a horse up to the hilt, stick spurs on and ride them in a constant and tight rein (ie pulling them into an outline with brute force!!) If a horse refuses to so called collect then he will have the tightest draw reins going put on them! And make them jump with them on! Now I've heard of jumping with draw reins but you have to be skilled and let the horse have its head over the fence but these poor idiots have to go over it as thery are!
He also gives so called lessons (since he got instructors insurance), and all they do is go around and around the outside of the menage (making a deep trench), occasionally changing the rein and then go around again! No circles, lateral work or anything to encoursge the horse to drop or enjoy a variation!
He has also sold them all dodgy warmbloods (all have been no end of problems, lame, sarcoids etc) for rediculous amounts of money after convincing these poor kids to sell there beloved horses/ponies due to them not being "good enough"!!! Since all this started (10mnths ago) not one of the poor kids has gone clear or been placed at a class but they still keep on listening to him! Like their brain washed or something!
He's making a fortune out of them!
