So my horse likes to try to eat while I'm riding her - heck she tries to eat all the time! I always kick her forward when her head goes down, but she still hasn't given up trying. I looked on Parelli's website and basically they say I should let her graze when I'm riding her every once in a while. (here's the link: http://www.parellinaturalhorsetraini.../eating-grass/ )
I don't really know if I agree with that, and honestly I'm too scared to try it because I don't want to teach my horse a bad habit. I always hand graze my horse after I get off and untack, but that's completely different than under saddle. Have any of you tried this way? Do you let you're horse eat while you ride? If so does it work?
And just so you know I'm not bashing Parelli, although I have heard alot of people claim it's all a scam. I'm just wondering if you guys agree with this training method? I can't say I do.
