    Thank you all for your responses. I ask to be corrected if I was wrong in my thinking and obviously I was. Thank you.

    Also want to add that I never stated what my opinion of NH was.

    [QUOTE= Unfortunately, that's not true. Posters do that very thing, go on certain sections of the forum just to say "I can't stand ______(insert discipline, practice or trainer here)____" and it's not just NH that comes in for that treatement - hunters, Western Pleasure, barrel racing, dressage and gaited horses have all been bashed with a ferocity that is usually reserved for religon or politics.[/QUOTE]

    For what it's worth, this is a two-way street. I've seen NH followers on the training section "bashing" someone who doesn't follow NH. Not recently, but when I first joined.

    That is one of the reason for the blog at the beginning, critique and discussion of training techniques is one thing, bashing is another thing.
    Bashing is being cracked down on, as it serves no purpose in learning

    It should be possible for people to question things, even disagree with things without making it feel as if you're sticking a knife in the back of the someone or insinuating that they're an idiot simply because they have a different opinion or preference - and I don't think it matters what the thread is - including religion and politics.
    Once one person starts something unpleasant it just escalates

    I'm in favour of 'NH', for what that's worth, for what it means to me, & that's what I'm here(or on the general training forum) to discuss. That's not to say I like, respect, advocate every person who 'fights under the banner' by far - words are cheap.

    ...And maybe because I'm Australian, I take the snides & sarcasm and roll with that too! It all comes out in the wash!

    The subforum topic statement is a contradiction,
    This place is for asking about methods not for opinions of methods ? How you going to get advice on implementing methods if different people don't include their opinion of those methods and how they worked ?
    Besides what would the point of even having a discussion be if only people that agreed with the OP posted ? We could simply have one training guide and all sit around and clap and say how great it is.
    "Natural" is just another marketing gimmick used to trick people, Same with "All natural" being applied to drugs, supplements, foods, beer, etc etc,, like Natural is some endorsement form God Himself.
    Next time you see a add with "all natural " in it. Remember it is a meaningless term. Arsenic is natural, beating something over the head with a club is pretty natural as well.

    Do you know what NH is? Do I? Does anyone? The answer, of course, is no. There are more theories and opinions about NH than there are beans in a bean bag. Thus, there cannot be a section on NH without discussions, disagreements, and opinions. If NH was just one single set of training methods, then your observation would be correct. However, due to the hundreds of different views of what NH is and the hundreds and hundreds of different, and sometimes conflicting, training methods, there will always be debates and differences of opinion...as it should be. I have practiced NH for 50 years, but it is so far removed from the modern "NH" put forth by commercial trainers in tight pants whose primary objective is to sell DVD's, entertain, and make money, that it is folly to even call them both NH...

    I am thinking there should be an "OH" style of horsemanship. Organic horsemanship, practiced without pesticides and chemicals.
