Someone posted a link to this in another thread, and I've seen it posted on other forums as well. Absolutely appalling.
And, it's not coming from some novice, newbie owner who doesn't have a clue about how to train their backyard horse who is just getting starting in the program.
This is the "queen bee" of the PNH program who is whacking the horse in the face with both the rope AND her hands! Not just once, but repeatedly.
I don't care if she is taking dressage lessons from WAZ or lessons from any other pro in the industry to improve her riding. . .this has nothing to do with bad riding and everything to do with crappy, irresponsible horsemanship.
