I am not against my horse seeing me as their friend. But there is such a fine line and so many people cross it and let their horses walk all over them. Of course I want to be able to go hang out with my horse and love on them and them love me back. But I am not going to think that because I love on them they can push me around. I guess I should have been a tad more clear on that.
As for PP, well I am not going to touch that one. But it leans a lot more towards your thinking of him as being a better sales person. Some of the basics there is great, however he leads people to believe that his methods only work with his special brand of a carrot stick and his halter... again this puts him towards not actually teaching, but branding.
I believe my sour taste about PP comes from the fact that its almost like a cult. And people who are level blah blah in PP horsemanship know more then you do and that if you don't use PP you are not doing it right. See where I am going here?
As for playing fetch... obviously I am exaggerating lol. But its a dig at the games. As I have been told by so many people in his cult that you should not ride a horse until it can "play" all of the games.
I am not even going to touch MR. Because that is a topic best left untouched by me.
