Nope, not me.

No offence but when people start banging on about how we only use 10% of our brain and therefore the other 90% has the ability to do all of these wunderfulll and mystikalll things I just want to remind people that the human brain is approximately 80% water.

Sorry to disappoint.

I know that there are some people here that are interested in this type of thing though, there is a thread that talks about animal communicators and it is a positive discussion... I'll dig it up for you...

Animal Communicators?

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I had a friend who believed in animal communicators. The animal communicator wasn't even in the same state! I never could understand how she would listen to someone who had never even met her horse. She would actually make decisions on whether the horse was happy or not, and what she would do about it, by listening to some psychic on the phone.

How could a stranger know anything about her horse, when all she would need to do is actually go out and interact with the horse herself?

So yeah, I'm a big skeptic! Just go out and "communicate" with the horse yourself, by grooming, groundwork and riding them.

I would probably audit if it were free or extremely cheap.

Sorry, just want to add that I didn't see how expensive this is - I would definitely do it for a cheaper price.

If the auditor cost were free, I'd do it for sh*ts and giggles. Other than that, there's no way I'd pay someone $100 just to sit and watch them do woo-woo stuff.

Only if it was cheap enough. And I do not consider anything even remotely near $400 to be cheap! And I would require some pretty good proof that the communicator was not a fake.....not sure if I believe in that, but I could possibly be swayed if enough hard evidence connecting to me (so that I can verify it's truth) was provided........

I wouldn't. I don't believe someone to be in expert in ALL riding disciplines, plus I can communicate with my own animals way better that any communicator in world (who doesn't even know my animal to start with).

I'd much rather spend money for the clinic on several private lessons with the very good trainer in discipline I'm interested in (whether english or western).

Sounds like a great home-business idea

Thanks for your honesty, Carleen. I am interested in knowing what you would think is a fair price for a 2-day (20 hour) clinic where you'd be one of 12 riders. Could you share that info with me? Thanks so much.
