Nevzorov
 
Has anyone read his book or follow his system here? Just curious as someone just 'gifted' me his book. I have read a little of the first chapter (it's one of those gifts where I am not sure it was meant well or not), but I am curious about it and wonder if anyone here follows his method. I'd be interested to hear thoughts.

A very talented rider, But I find his theories a bit.......offbeat.

^ Agreed. I love watching his horses and him perform together, but I don't agree to every word that comes out of his mouth.

His rantings against equestrian sport make him a nutcase in my book.

Ray MacDonald 02-21-2012 06:03 PM

I agree! A whole lot of crazy! He is apparently against using artifical aids, bits and actually riding horses.....

You should see some of the crazy things people say when they comment on his YouTube videos.

Well, his first chapter is a bit snarky. I was trying to get a feel for his method and why this person gave me the book. I ride trails and am thinking about endurance, and I already use a LightRider bitless, so I was thinking she either thinks I'm abusive or a kindred spirit to him (which I am neither), but I guess I will just keep reading a bit more. It doesn't seem, so far, to be as much of a method as a diatribe, but I was wondering if there's some methodology in there that I could use to better relate to Bucky and Dixie (mostly Dixie because she respects us, but I don't get the sense she enjoys us, like Bucky who is so friendly and happy to be with us). Anyway, thanks for the replies!

Yet if you look hard enough in youtube you might be able to find videos of him doing his "haute ecole" act with spurs and a bit. Unless he's taken the video down.

I believe the flaming nutbag has since stopped riding his horses because it's 'cruel'.

2SCH, you're better off watching the documentary Buck, than reading anything by Nevzorov.

Oh,he's very controversial... I don't agree with his methods, neither I agree with his constant ranting, conflicts with other styles (for example, he prohibits his followers to do anything from the Parelli system), trying to make himself elite (only a small number are let to participate in his online "school", if they are voted to be worthy enough), and also his past - he used to be a part of OMON, a Russian special ops group who carried out the most cruel orders of the government back in times when the Soviet Union was to collapse.

To my mind, a good horseman is good, no matter what, can be easily recognised and doesn't have to be nor flashy, nor participate in any conflicts with the rest of the equestrian world.

I too do not agree with the degree of his 'diatribes', but do agree with the basic gist. While I think he's quite fanatical about the subject, I don't think(of the bit I know of him) he's a nutcase and think there is a lot to be learned from him too - I don't like throwing the baby out with the bathwater & tend to think that about any horseman - can't recall seeing anyone I've agreed 100% with, but just taken the good points & shelved the rest.
