    Yay for everything that makes me dislike the "Natural Horsemanship" movement.

    I still do not understand why the heck it's called "Natural Horsemanship."
    I use a bit, I use a saddle with a tree, I use various equipment and different training methods to accomplish what I want done, but I never misuse the equipment.
    For the "NH" people... isn't simply ... owning a horse "not natural"??

    It bugs me.


    Like I said, the video was FULL of half-truths.

    It's about being as natural with a horse as possible while they are living in our unnatural environment......it's about getting what we want done as naturally as possible even though we are asking our horses to do sometimes unnatural things.

    ... I just wonder how I'm "more unnatural" than some "NH trainers."
    Anyways, that's just semantics.
    I hate how I'm lumped into the "abusive" group because I use a bit and saddles.

    My favourite part of the video was the bit where the text asked something like, "Do you really want to do this?" and then it flashed a clip of a Grand Prix horse and rider executing a lovely fluid half-pass, and I thought, "Well, actually yes, I would."





    Okay, the next clip was a guy riding a half-pass bridleless, which I wouldn't be averse to either, but I'll take what I can get. :)

    I would love to learn to abuse my horse like that too! If I'm going to be a horse abuser anyway it might as well be at the Gran Prix level.

    Haha, that is a good way to look at the positive side of how we who ride with saddles and bridles 'abuse' our horses!
