What's with all the haters?

Why is this section of the forum crawling with haters? So many of the posts I see in here bash NH methods. I thought this was suppossed to be a section to discuss NH? Come on, people, let's all chill out. Just because someone doesn't share your opinion on horse training doesn't give you the right to bash them or their training methods. Can we please be civilized and show a little respect for both our opinions and eachother?

And while I also agree, it is a two way street. Bashing others because they choose to not participate in NH doesn't make them abusive owners...

I completely agree, corinowalk I just wanted to address it here because it seemed more prevalent. We really do need to respect eachother's opinions in every forum section, unless it truly is harmful.

I don't have a problem with natural horsemanship. I quite like it. I have a problem with a lot of the mainstream "NH" trainers because they are nothing but big ole money lovin' posers (cough Parelli cough).

I also agree with that, Tennessee. I wish we had some of the old NH pros that began it all

Agree! I think we should keep an open mind about all forms of horsemanship and learn what we can from every piece we see.

*sigh*... I''m not trying to get into an argument, but my trainers at my barn use Parelli quite successfully. Sure they don't buy all his gadgets or whatever, but they use his method =)

You see this kind of comment is where the problems start maybe, from both sides..

If they aren't buying the gadgets then the true PP people will say that they aren't really following the program.

I don't have an issue with true NH methods, I do have an issue with overpriced gadgets, and I do have an issue with both sides who say that theirs is the only way.
