Heck ya I would be interested! I'm not an NH follower at all, I have no use for playing "games" with my horse, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure a horse out yet it appears to be high level stuff in the NH world. I'm old school all the way...I show WP horses so I understand what it takes to get a horse to "pack" a big bit and work off of it with no hand from the rider. Bridle horses go SO far beyond that, the bits are bigger, and the process and art it takes to get one finished (which takes a long time) is SO awesome.

Thank you everyone!! Below I have attached a couple pictures of "Pistol" a two year old Dash for Cash/Hancock bred grulla filly. Sorry about the mud and weeds in her tail, like I said, she hasn't ever been handled. Let me know what you all think, critiques are welcome! She was my pick of the bunch!

first of all, I really find it irksome that "natural horsemanship" is perceived as something different, something fluffy and full of rainbows and butterfly kisses (thought I would love to be kissed by a butterfly). Some things of NH might qualify for that, but plenty doesn't . There's plenty that was done by Ray Hunt and the Dorrances, and Branaman that is directly connected to Vaquero training of bridle horses, which all goes way back to training connected to Classical Dressage and the use of the Jakima (hackimore).

In any case, I would love to see your training videos.
The filly is beautiful.

I agree. In this forum though, all I see is NH. I'm not saying its wrong. In all actuallity, NH and vaquero styles share most of the same concept, but today the old ways are getting covered up by new views on things, which is fine I understand that's how life goes, but making a bridle horse is an art, an art that is quickly dying away. Everyone can learn something from different methods of training. And I just though I would share mine and the bridle-horse art.

I follow Clinton Anderson's methods......I find Parelli is more the "fluffy" stuff and that the horse really doesn't respect the human doing it their way....JMHO.
I would love to see vids of how you are training, never heard of that.....

I personally like (and use) a combination of good old fashioned horsemanship and some NH. In other words, each gives me more tools. Each horse is different, and I use a different combination of "tools". I would love to see your video...in fact, had a similar discussion today with a trainer friend.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Nice looking filly! As far as a critique goes, I see short pasterns and a weak loin, but I like everything else!
