But be wary of the ones who are trying to convince you.
Another website I personally love which I have linked from my own website is Less Is More Horse HomePage
There are alot of good articles on there and alot of links to other 'NH' sites too.
Hi Essex girl!!!!
Love your art work by the way
Yes you are right - information is information unfortunately there is so much crap out there - 13 year old girls giving advice on Youtube etc and if you know nothing then how do you know what's good and whats bad?
A lot of people are making bad choices and their horse usually pays the price for it
I did find the website interesting - he doesn't try to say that its possible to do some things with all horses - which I like, he seems to have a similar style to Hempfling, especially with his thoughts on round penning (done incorrectly) Apart for the people in the UK who bought into the Monty Roberts/Parelli thing when it hit the country the US style of round penning is pretty alien, horsemen/women managed to successfully produce safe sound riding horses in a calm, kind way for many many years without it so continue to do so. It is not the one solution to everything. I also liked his comments on the 'respect' thing - again it doesn't all come down to lack of respect, its often down to the horse just not having a clue what you're asking for because your direction and previous training was totally lacking
I can't say that I would agree with all his ideas but he doesn't seem to have that forceful, bully boy approach so I'm good with that
Hope your horse(s) are coping with all the rain you're getting over there - its going to make for a very muddy winter!!
