Sounds a lot like Caesar the dog whisperer, same exact philosophy. Very wise man here. Tom Dorrance is a very wise man as well. (I think that mule he has in the video is gorgeous for a mule, very nicely put together.)

Excellent video, I see myself trying to humanize my horses. I regularly have a talk with myself that they aren't humans and more than that they are prey animals. Completely different in their thinking than even a dog.
Leaving our emotions at the corral gate is more good advice. That's one I have to remind my husband Gotta leave that anger and ego behind. Not an easy task sometimes.

It reminds me a lot of Pat Parelli. We have something similar here in Australia, started by Carlos Tabernaberri. It's good to see that horsemanship hasn't dissolved completely. There are people who claim to be natural horsemen and women, but who still get angry and hit their horses. I'm not sure if you are one of those people who use crops, but I'm glad you posted this video. I try to point this out to people and I don't think I'm being clear enough =D Thank you

I would use a bear trap if I thought it would communicate to the horse what I wanted. I see nothing wrong with crops or spurs as long as they are used without ego.

I understand. Why does everyone think I'm ignorant for refusing to use crops or spurs?? I have nothing against them. I just do not like the way some people use them.

I've had good enough relationships with my horses that no matter what the problem, it's nothing that couldn't be solved using correction without hitting them. I've never needed a crop. Or spurs.

I'm sorry. I'm a little offended by wild_spot's comment. I have nothing against them.

That's a very good video. And he does remind me of the dog whisperer a lot. What is funny is I watch the Dog Whisperer quite frequently and I don't even have a dog! But I think what Cesar teaches (as far as being a calm assertive leader) also applies to horses, and that is what this gentleman is saying.

I also really admire Cesar's ability to read the dog's body language.

I am not a strong leader myself, but I am working on it. I have a good friend that always says "fake it till you make it." Sometimes I will get on a horse and I am a bit nervous because I don't know the animal well or the horse is nervous about something, and I will just try to take charge in calm but assertive way and "fake it till I make it." So that is something that is really changing my philosophy with horses. Actually taking charge and being a leader. Before I was more a passenger asking the horse pretty please to do as I asked. Not that I am a dominant person because I'm not, and I always hate to see people get into a battle with a horse, but just being positive and firm and expecting the horse to do what I ask, instead of being afraid to insist he follow through.

On the opposite end of the spectrum are the folks who seem to get mad at the horse and battle it out with them. I just hate to see that. Why get everyone's energy level all up when if they were patient they would get the same result? Almost like they take it personal if the horse doesn't respond in the way they expect. Anyway, I am getting off topic here I guess!

I figured wild_spot was being sarcastic.
