I have read up on natural horsemanship and I really do think its a great thing... I just think its such a shame that it has become such a business!
I recently adopted an OTSB (off the track standardbred) and was really interested in getting started on training him, starting of course with groundwork. So i've been looking into clinics and courses. IMPOSSIBLE! No one holds clinics in Canada over any season but the summer! Which doesn't make sense to me, there are lots of indoor arenas and do they assume that people just don't get new horses or work with their horses once it gets cold?!
So then I thought of maybe getting a DVD, but which one? There are sooo many I don't know where to start and getting them all is more expensive than doing a clinic!
Sorry about ragging on training, I have the same issue with training in any species; people that want to try and do the best thing often just get bogged down in a lot of red tape and BS and its such a shame.
Anyways the point of this is just to see if anyone has been stuck as I have and can offer me any advice.
