Spinoff: LP's version of "Horse-man-ship."
Someone posted a link to this in another thread, and I've seen it posted on other forums as well. Absolutely appalling.
And, it's not coming from some novice, newbie owner who doesn't have a clue about how to train their backyard horse who is just getting starting in the program.
This is the "queen bee" of the PNH program who is whacking the horse in the face with both the rope AND her hands! Not just once, but repeatedly.
I don't care if she is taking dressage lessons from WAZ or lessons from any other pro in the industry to improve her riding. . .this has nothing to do with bad riding and everything to do with crappy, irresponsible horsemanship.
It's like he's never been taught anything prior to that, and that they didn't even attempt to gain his attention before the lesson. wtfbbq?
Is that the PNH method for getting a horse's attention?
My sympathies to the poor sod of an owner who was so immersed in the Kool-Aid that he just stood by while LP "trained" his horse.
She was driving him forward by whacking him on the but with the lead and then hauling on his face to get him to STOP going forward - No way would I let her anywhere near my horses. Latte's brain would melt if you tried that on her. What a saint of a horse.
She apparently wanted him to teleport away from her....she doesn't want him to back away, but he can't turn to walk away either. -sigh-
Found a quote of Linda:
Wow... why are they shaking ropes at the horse and twirling ropes and then waving arms.... ? This does not make sense.
It would appear her hypocrisy knows no bounds. It's all about talking to the horse on his level and NEVER using force, right???? I have had to resort to using tactics similar to that before, but not in that way or that situation. Then again, I am not the self proclaimed Queen of NH either. To me, it's not so much that she is using those tactics, but the way she is using them seems really bass ackwards to me. Plus they are always preaching about never forcing an issue.
I would love to know which of the 7 games that is and how it is supposed to make the horse your friend. :?
..I prefer the moose guy. :|
