I've heard many times that JL is boring. Sure, if you are expecting to see tricks, fancy jumps and a huge event....I agree. However, if you are truly watching to learn how to train a horse...he's not boring at all. His methods are easy to learn. The horses don't get bored because you are engaging their minds in each step. The horse learns to focus on it's person and not some object like a lot of the other trainers use. IE: I want my horse to move his rear when I ask him (my horses cue is "excuse me") not because I've smacked his legs with a stick. Then, he focuses on the stick and not me. I want my horse to backup when I backup not backup in fear of getting hit with a buckle of a lead rope. Again, he would be more focused on that buckle than on me.
However, different strokes for different folks! People learn things in many different ways. Oh and if anyone saw JL at RTTH.....you really wouldn't have thought he was boring during his demo with his horses. He had them sitting on pillows, jumping a triple combo of jumps, running at liberty, etc. It was quite entertaining.
