Spirithorse, unlike you, I have no point to prove or philosophy to uphold. I responded to your advice/post the way I did because I thought it was, and is, DANGEROUS. I would have done the same to ANY post/advice I felt was as ill advised and dangerous as yours…so don't take it personally! This isn't about YOU and what you can do. It's about the person asking the question and whether or not the advice is safe for THEM. There are things I do with horses that I would never advise anyone else to do, because I know that if it is done improperly, they, or the horse, could get hurt.
Horses are honest animals and appreciate honesty, not sneakiness.
