"I am honored now to consider myself friends with OTHER ‘natural horsemanship” clinicians"

I'm just saying that to me yes SW is a natural horsemanship trainer and in that sentence I feel she is calling herself one. Maybe she made a smart move by not attaching that title to everything. Especially if it helps those who feel she's not a NH trainer follow her. I just don't see the difference between her and the others. You can learn something from all of them.

I don't think NH trainers or their programs are perfect. They are pretty good at getting beginners started and keeping them safe but they are far from flawless. And I think part of the problem with all the negative stuff going around about NH is due to bad experiences people have had with NH. Maybe not themselves but watching or listening to others. I've not really experienced that sort of thing myself so I don't have those same negative feelings. If I had though, I bet I would feel the same.

from what my chiro said..the problem with ppl who attend a 1 day NH clinic is they go home,they expect their horses to be perfect and do the same things at the NH clinic, and then blame NH for them getting injured,

see to me NH is like...thinking like a horse, being aware of the horses behaviour, and why and what can be causing the current behaviour, like they say, horses can run off our emotion, so its having an open mind to how u are feeling as to why the horse is doing what its doing.

to me i find blue ribbens get in the way of alot of ppl and their horses.

to me not everything is about riding the horse, i enjoy picking up poo in the paddock, i love grooming, i love just sitting and watching the horse
