He's originally from Austrailia. That doesn't mean he is well liked there. (he may be, I don't know) Personally, I like his methods, but there are many methods that may work.

I have to disagree with all yall. I have a 3 year old filly and she is the best horse I've ever ridden. Alot of people told me I shouldn't get a 3 year old for my first horse but I did and she's perfect for me!

He isn't confined to a stall - he comes in at morning and night for hay/grain, but he's outside in the pasture all day with his buddies, so he does have the opportunity to get exercise and stretch. I don't agree with keeping horses in stalls all the time at all, so I don't think that would be the problem.

Thanks for the advice and insights though everyone.

ah ok! im not confused anymore now lol ive looked into his stuff a bit (not in detail) and he seems to have some good methods. im a big believer though in looking at all the different natural horsemen and basing a training program around a little of everything ;)
