Honestly, its not just smacking with a whip, she put him back in his stall one day, and I started to cry at what she had don't to this poor horse! Where she had hit him had gone red raw and was bleeding! She also left him with his tack on and no water! From that day on I hated her and 'classical' or whatever she called it! I didnt realise she meant tradtional! I thought that classical was a method of training when you beat your horse like that! But now I realise it was just her!

They would say 'when you get him into a nice trot, keep slapping him on the bumto keep him going. If he gets to fast, yank on your reins and give him a huge slap!' I left I wondered if there was any other way and dint ride for years because I thought that was it. I know that not everywhere is like that, but it has put me off traditional riding for good! Like some you you don't agree with parelli :)

Each to their own, but don't be put off because of one bad experience. If we did that all the time, no one would get back on a horse for falling off it!
Search the boards, some of the dressage threads are good as it'll teach you that 'traditional' is more than just snatch the reins and put your spurs in a horse's side till it bleeds.

You have to get permission fom your horse to ride? What if your horse says she'd rather graze than go for a ride?

With your pre-ride routine, if you & I were going riding together I'd have you call me when you got to the last play session.

Karen is truly amazing, I agree. ;) It might be beneficial to read her book "Dressage: Naturally", if you can get one, or watch a DVD, or the videos on youtube. She changed my opinion on dressage, too, and now I do many of the exercises she advises, and see how they do good for my horse.

Mind me, I'm not trying to advertise anything here, just sharing my experience of how not everything is black or white. :)

I am still waiting for her to tell me what her horse DOES.

I don't have the patience to putz with my horse and my horses certainly do not have the patience to be putzed with. They like to DO something. Trail ride, work cattle, etc.

I do understand what you are saying duffyduck but with that other girl making her horse bleed, I just couldnt face it even though I know its not cruel, I just break down and snivvles. She had her horse put down because she 'wouldnt listen to the whip and was too slow' its not that I hate tradtional, it brings back bad memories

Natisha, I always ask my horse permission to mount - and, if he doesn't want me to mount, I know there's something wrong - either with our relationship, hierarchy, or the way he feels physically. Sometimes it means more groundwork, sometimes it means something's wrong with the saddle or something in the arena scares him and he'd like to get a better look at it with me leading him, not with me mounted, etc. It takes a lot of horse reading skills, but I think it's worth the effort. :) Because I put his well-being in the first place, the ride is secondary...

Sorry if I'm wrong but this horror story is starting to look a little too far-stretched to me... If you faced such cruelty, why didn't you report it to the authorities? And putting down a horse that is just too slow instead of, for example, selling it to someone - do such things really happen?

Mls, a horse that does parelli, can do everything that anyother horse can do. And natisha, yes, I would like her permission, I don't think id like someone to come up to me and sit on me without asking first ;) and if shed rather graze (which my horse does) I would change her mind, take her somewhere where she cannot eat, and make her do something (like figure 8 at trot or canter) then she will think, would I rather have her on my back or do cantering circles?
