Some of you know I bought a 5 year old gelding a few weeks ago and we are having a few issues. My plan is to have some one come out a few times this year and give me a few lessons with ground work and just help me out overall. Then I was planning on sending him for 3 months in the spring.
So in my search for trainers I found a lady that does natural horsemanship. I wanted some one who worked with Morgans but I had no luck in my area and I want him to be close enough that I can participate in the training process and watch his progress. I was in no way, shape or form seeking a Natural Horsemanship trainers but I have heard many wonderful things about her. I rather have a cool and collected horse trainer than some one who is going to try beating Dan into submission and train him based on fear which I have a feeling that’s how he was started. So she is coming to help us next weekend.
She isnt cheap…so sending him for 3 months is hard enough and the thought of having to send him for any longer than that freaks me out.
I have heard that Natural Horsemanship trainers seem to take WAY longer than most trainers do. Is that true?
Plus, what is your personal opinion on Natural Horsemanship??
