Ok so a spirit bridle, reins and martingale are $350. Add this to the custom saddle with no tree for almost $1500. Add the DVD set I looked into for another $1200 to teach me NH. Hmmm let me see here the total so far is $3,050. Oh and that nice rope halter that is only available in one place for another 60 bucks I think it was. Plus all the supplements, herbs, powder, potions and pills that came highly recommended with my horse. Which if I bought all that stuff would set me back a good $400 a month. WOW do they really sock people for this much cash???????
Every single day!
NH IMHO is nothing more than common sense. My little doll knows he can run rough shod over bf and son. He knows (even on crutches) that he can't bully me anymore. Yes, he got whacked with a crutch on his butt.
Don't step on me and I won't whack you. Common sense. Don't run over me while gettin your feet done and I won't pop your chest. Common sense. Don't try to run me down
when I am crutching out to feed you in the mud and goop and I won't smack ya with a lead rope. Common sense. Leave off trying to use me as a scratching post and I'll let you stay close and get lovin. Common sense. Did I mention it is horse sense and common sense...same difference LOL
Now my guy costs me enough without all the expensive doo-dads. I can't imagine spending more than I do with upkeep, vet checks, trims (shoes if he needs them when the new guy FINALLY comes) and all the other assorted (oops son lost a hoof pick) costs.
I guess if you got that kind of money to put into some NH trainers pocket..well have fun with the games of round and round.
Now having said that, yeah I can see where some of this would work great, hell some of it I use daily, I just can't see being stuck into ONE way of doing it.
Horses and snowflakes, no 2 alike. Hmm my new sig I think LOL
