I too, have tried the natural horsemanship thing. I don't fancy it. As kevin and rio stated, those are merely just tricks. This is my own opinion and I'm not bashing anyone who loves this natural horsemanship. I've found that I get further in my training by getting down to the nitty gritty of things, rather than *****footing around with whips and circles and what not. If a horse does something bad, he gets hit with my hand or foot or whatever but never with an "extenstion", as some say. If a horse tries to do something bad, I'm not going to pet it and say "you know better than to do that, no." He's just going to do it again. Some people say horses don't understand physical actions, but why does it work than?? Some people say that if a horse is kicking and bucking or trying to harm you, that you shouldn't hit them? I will make that horse fear for it's own life!!! If he can decide to kick out at me for no reason at all, you better believe I will kick out at him and hit him and make him run from me! I just have no time for NH anymore.
