I do feel that the Yo-Yo game is just not a good training technique at all though and when done by beginners,just sends the horses head up in the air.
My horses have never done this, nor any horse I have ever worked with.
My complaint is not really with PP or the Yo-Yo game,but the people that watch the game and bang the buckle of their lead rope against the jaw of their horse trying the game.
I know that is not how PP teaches it,but you know that people are out there every day trying it with the wrong equipment and that is harmful.
The 7 games was introduced as a VERY easy set of games to "Play" with your horse and "SOME" people have gotten in over their heads with the training thing.
