I'm not saying if I am for or against the man but if you work with horses to make a living you have to put food on your table and hay in the racks so money always has to rear its ugly head somewhere

While I agree with this there are some of these Clinitions that do not push their stuff as much at others. Lyons I do not even think he has anything he pushed.

OThers have stuff but you do not really see them pushing it while others that is all it is about selling their stuff.

He does have headstall and signature reins but he does not push them like some I have seen. I love his reins and use them. Not exclusively but I do use them. He does hold clinics and has wrote some books but as I said it is not a lot of huge deals and not all for money.

Yes you have to have some money but he is very humble

I wasn't actually being critical of John Lyons - so sorry if you thought I was. I don't know enough about him to pass opinion. He was at the Equine Affaire near us last year and he did seem very modest and chatted with us - interested that we were from the UK I think. His horses were very relaxed and comfortable around him which always speaks volumes for me.
What I was trying to say was that if you make a living out of horses then for the good of those horses and in order to survive you have to make money.
There's a huge difference between making enough to comfortably get along and turning the whole thing into a massive marketing circus

Information is information, no matter where it comes from. And if you understand it and find positivity in it and apply it and it works for you and your horse, then great! At the end of the day it's all about the horse and they are our greatest teachers, because the horse always has the right answers to teach us properly.
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.

Just skimmed through all the posts so apologies if I double over what anyone else has said, but try not to stick to just one trainer and become devoted to following their exact steps. Find what works for your horse, take what you feel is right from a multitude of different trainers. Try and develop your own style- not everything works for every horse!
For something different, look up Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling and search working with horses at liberty. There is some truly amazing stuff to be found!

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!!
