It also seems to me like they are asking for huge leaps instead of baby steps... instead of being happy that he is backing and stopping, she tells him to make him back and continue backing.... makes no training sense at all to me...

I'll try going forwards... nope, still no release... I'll try backing up again.... nope, he's still swinging the rope.... now I'm confused!"
What, praytell, was supposed to be the objective? Obviously the horse didn't know what he was supposed to do. He backed up, didn't get any praise or release, so he tried something else.
Disgusting.

Holy cow. That is just ridiculous. Whatever happened to training using release of pressure? That poor horse didn't have a release for a solid 10 minutes. If she keeps "training" horses like that, she's going to end up eating through a straw.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Good heavens... I just found a version of the original video that my computer will allow me to watch.

That horse is an absolute saint. My guy would have stomped her under the circumstances, methinks, and he has excellent manners, at least by my standards and for the most part. I saw nothing any more dangerous than any other good sized horse investigating a new situation. So much for "phases", rhythm, not acting predatory (I'd have run from her, and I'm a predator, too), and release of pressure. Way to go, LP.

I'm a human and I can still watch that video and have absolutely no idea what they wanted from that horse. If anything, it looked like it was the game of 'make your horse head-shy'.

From the way she's moving and her gestures she is getting more and more nervous and unhappy. I've seen trainers working with the difficult horses. They are very calm the way they move, even when they are very firm to the horse or horse freaks out. Most of them also still keep smile and deep breath. :)

Yeah, the one trainer I know will actually laugh at the horse. He certainly does not get mad, I think the more freaked out the horse gets the more patient he gets.
