I don't think you can say any entire discipline is "preposterous" or "insanity". But with a lot of disciplines, I can see how an ignorant, quick-to-jump-to-conclusions person might think it. I just don't see that with reining...
Ah yes, but I think the big problem is about how it was written. People can most definitely nullify their argument by writing it like what you saw in this article. Extremists - for just about anything - pretty much scare the crap out of me for their one-sided, limited, all-consuming passion for a subject. Kind of like there's animal abuse in the world, but I sure as heck won't side with PETA.

Haha, yes, I agree.

I stopped reading after the first few lines. That was ridiculous. And I'm sure there are plenty of beginner horsemen out there just eating it up. It's like those Youtube videos that were probably made by ignorant fourteen year olds that say bits are evil or sitting on a horse's back is immoral and unethical. Some people make me want to vomit.

I actually think reining is one of the better events out there because the horses are actually allowed to move out and work at a natural speed.

I would like to see western pleasure horses moving more like reining horses. Take out the sliding stops and spins, but let the horses actually canter at a normal pace. From what I have seen, I like the looks of reining.

I also like how the horses work on a loose rein. Precision, control, a loose rein, it's beautiful.

Haha, I hadn't.


"I am well aware that most people in this world and around horses are blind, cannot see or understand the things around them because of their inability to see things as they are, which of course distorts their judgment and sound reasoning..."


Hmmm.... That does remind me of somebody....

" Writing about myself is not something I like to do, as I find it fairly vain and useless to write about where I was, what I have done, who I worked for, and such and so forth. Though I will provide more of this personal information at the end of this article, and in the near future on my personal website, I still find the concept of writing about my life sort of silly, vain and useless.

It would be fair to say that my writings fairly represent not only my experiences but also my personality, and if one cannot see it then writing about me would be quite useless to such reader. Most importantly, one should be aware that I am writing from my experiences, from my life, and no articles written by me represent my thoughts or opinions, let alone something I've heard somewhere, but rather disclose the truths that I have seen and lived.

If you think you "love" your horse or call him your baby, friend and such, do yourself a favor and leave this website. This place is not for you, as you can rest assured you will leave this site bitter, especially if you are blinded by pride and or feminist prejudice, which not only clouds one's judgment but also his or her understanding. In short, you will have no clue what you are reading here."

He also stated that, you don't have to agree with his opinions. I hate alot of things about different disciplines, does that make me ignorant?

Only if you don't understand what it is you hate, which he clearly doesn't.

I stopped after he started saying we make them spin without picking their foot up...If only he knew they actually do pick it up and reset it!

It hurt my brain to read it.

It's one thing to dislike it, its another to talk like you know whats go on and whats happening, and how it works when you clearly have no idea.

Ok I had to read more. The sliding plates part made me laugh out loud! Hardship and insecurity in circles? What the heck! Haha.
