Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Who is the best horse trainer of them all.

It isn't any of the NH trainers, that's for sure.

Let me know, all you bookselling Marketeer trainers, when you reach this level and don't spur the sides off your horse like I saw Parelli do when he thought nobody was watching, a few years back.

It was well worth burning 12% of my FAP time (hughes.net:( to watch this.


For those who think horses are stupid and can't understand anything beyond, whoa, go, back up and d**n you, listen closely. Tommy Turvey often uses short sentences and the horses respond.

I have trained my horses with short sentences for many years, with great results. It's wonderful to know I am not such an idiot after all.

It is true, I have little respect for the NH trainers and why I try had to stay out of these training threads. I have a lot of respect for the original concept of helping people who want a horse and have no one close to them to help, but the money-making end of the "NH'rs" has gotten way out of control.

If I were looking to buy a horse and somebody proudly told me it was NH trained -- I would not walk, I would run to my car while hollering over my shoulder "thanks for your time and have a wonderful day". I would rather re-school a Widowmaker--------------------

I know this will set off a firestorm but try to enjoy the video first and appreciate what real horse training is all about

It sounded as if they were using clicker training on the sheep and one of the dogs.

Im not sure what the purpose of this thread is, but honestly I really don't like tommy turvey. I saw him beat a horse with a dressage whip because it didnt want to lay down in front of an audience of thousands. Not use the dressage whip, really beat on the horse for a length of time. People in the stands were booing and screaming like crazy.

The purpose was mainly for folks to enjoy the Clydesdales in training and to have enjoyed what I perceived as real-from-the-heart training. Then you had to go and burst my bubble

I guess all of these famous trainers, sooner or later, get to beating on the horses, after all. Big big disappointment to hear this

I'm glad I've never done anything more than trail ride as that means nobody has touched my horses after I bought them - this really reinforces why I have always done my own training.
