I have known about this trainer, but have not ever watched any of her training shows, until today, and I was not impressed.
She seems really harsh, and actually told the person to 'slam the horse down', to 'harshly stop her' etc, etc... One of the first things she did was to change bits, from a full cheek to some kind of gag type bit. When she was riding the horse, it was really uptight, and tense. When the owner got on, the horse calmed down, and was doing what the owner wanted quite willingly, even the corrections. On one particular correction, Goodnight told her she had to get firmer, so the horse would 'know' without a doubt what the correction was for. The horse HAD responded to the owners correction, so tell me WHY would you want to get firmer??? Ugggh!!! Anyway, not impressed!
Anyone else have any previous experience with this trainer, or did I catch her on a 'bad' day?
