Natural or Other?

Hey,

Do you use Natural Horsemanship for training horses or do you use another way? If its "other" what way do you use?


Maddie,

I use a combination of different training methods. They could all be called natural in that I try to use non-forceful, horse body language to communicate my intention to my horses.
I voted other because not all that I use are natural. Some are just old cowboy methods. Some I just make up as I go along I've studied some Tom Dorance and Jesse Beery (really old timers) plus Clinton Anderson, Pat Parelli, John Lyons and other modern day DVD trainers. Our personal trainer/friend who helps me a ton is pretty much an old cowboy/new age trainer type.

Ditto, most of my training tactics I learned from my Dad who has trained horses professionally for about 41 years. Everything from show to ranch to polo ponies. The rest, I just use my common horse sense.

A combination of everything I've learned, and I always incorporate new techniques whenever I feel they would be beneficial.

Do I follow the brand Natural Horsemanship? No. But I do employ quite a few of the tips and techniques when necessary.

Yep. A lot of what I use is just what I picked up along the way growing up. I have combined that with the bits and pieces I like from various "experts". I don't really subscribe to any one particular method or expert because there are things about each I don't agree with - so I take what I want and discard the rest.

I use whatever works for the horse i'm working with, nothing more, nothing less.

I selected other. I use a combination of things that work for the horse that I am working with. Some methods work better with one horse while different methods work better with other horses.
