I didn't like the video, but now I feel for LP in some way. Because it's been going already on what? 16 pages, mostly same comments. Folks, lets give her a break and switch to someone else worse IMO! For example Julie Goodnight (spell?) and her shock collar for horses to train out of bad habits!
The problem, though, is that is WAS LP, and this wasn't just some backyard video taken of Linda during a "bad day."
This was a video sold as a training video. Linda, in this case, was supposed to be the trainer. Given that Pat and Linda have such a devoted group of followers, many of whom are very much novice or timid horse owners, Linda's handling of that horse is a poor example of "training" and not something worthy of trying to emulate.
