A knowledgeable horse handler would not help with this situation. They'd either stay out of the way and do nothing, or they'd do it, and ask the owner to stay out of the way. |
What you are suggesting is a great way to get hurt. The beginners can not learn if they do not have the facts about basic horsemanship. It is obvious you lack the basics of horsemanship, and to promote and suggest others follow poor horsemanship is dangerous and irresponsible. These horses are many times larger and stronger than we mere humans, BUT, we humans have the advantage, if we out think them, and understand the basics of horse behavior.
I may not have 65 years of experience working with horses, but I assure you I don't lack the basics of horsemanship.
People need to learn the basics, yes- not everybody can do that on their own, and like ANYTHING in this industry there is no one right way. Someone with experience may be able to tackle this issue on their own, others might need a hand and guidance. Asking for help, having an experienced handler is NOT poor horsemanship just because it isn't the way you
would do things.
