    I like this guys method. Very similar to what I do.

    I love how just before he said the horse was being "smart" the horse had that smug look on his face. You could tell the horse was trying to be Mr. Cool and edge his way in because in the horse's opinion, people are dumber than he is. I love reading horse body language <3

    I don't use a whip, I use the hand signals (my own little thing I do). The whip is pretty much his way of becoming a horse and saying "Eff off buddy, this is MY FOOD." If I fed two of my horses together, one would definitely get bit of kicked. A Bullwhip smack on the back once or twice doesnt do NEAR the amount of damage that another horse biting or kicking does. We need to use techniques that puts us on a level playing field with a 1,500 pound animal or else.. hey.. we lose!

    I use a very no-nonsense training method of training that I developed myself. Im pretty smug about it because so many people are pro "trainer name". Im just pro "good horses" lol.

    I was very glad to see a video like this posted. Everything he brought up I bring up with my clients that have disobedient horses. I swear, I need to get in on this whole "Video Training" Thing! =)

    I completely agree with the methods this guy uses. I didn't use a whip but I used a bucket and a 3ft stick to accomplish the same thing. My horses weren't being as pushy as this fellow but I demand good manners at feeding time.

    You go bugger off and I'll feed you, then you can come eat. I've always done it this way.

    I think a more important note that he mentioned is that NH has it's time and place...Sometimes a good whack with meaning and purpose at the right time will send a better message to the horse than any amount of love will.
