Those are some very good points Jolly. I think the mind set that many people have is the Monte Roberts idea that before him cowboys used to blindfold their horses, or snub them up to a post, or throw them down before riding them - anything to "break" them. That is so far from the truth.
The Dorance brothers, Ray Hunt, John Lyons, and others are cowboys but great technicians. I know many cowboys that earn their living on horseback and they are some of the most patient people on the planet earth when it comes to their horses.
It's the backyard yahoo, wannabe with a cheap Western saddle and cheaper cowboy boots that fosters the misconception.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
