So he replied to my email and stated that he doesn't really care what we think about his website. It deeply amuses me and I responded by informing him of the differance between not caring and close-minded ignorance.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I don't think its so much close-minded or ignorance; while I agree his website is a bit over the top to say the least he comes from a different place and time. He is used to seeing horses starting slowly and a lot older than Americans do. I also agree with him that shows are all about 'fads' and the 'ideal' changes slightly all the time depending on who is winning...

As I ride my halter bred 3 year old, adorable to me all the same, on his crappy little feet as he stumbles over every rocks and stick becuase he has been fitted to show and has never been in the outside world nonetheless turnout ever until now... I can't help but see sort of where he is comping from about ALL disciplines.

After all in this day in age where you can have a trainer on your horse 7 days a week until you enter the show ring; wherein of course you yourself then hop on.... is that really even discipline at all?

Ps. E-mailing and harassing someone becuase you do not agree with their opinions rarely changes their opinions.

Although this might work with some disciplines it does not work for reining. Especially for a non pro. A pro might be able to catch ride a reiners but it rarely happens.

Once again, there is a differance between harrassment and offering up my opinion. My words were far from impolite, and I did my best to hold a decent temper. The first email only held the link, the second stated that one should be open to others ideas, and I told him I didn't care what he thought so long as he could do it with some accuracy.

Oh yes, I know he won't change his mind. But I'm one of those open-voiced people who feel the need to let people know their opinions for consideration whether they decide to take my advice or not.

haha, Kind of off topic but, that is one gorgeous horse lol.

I have to agree that this article seems ill informed to say the least. But it was interesting reading all the responses from people who know something about reining
I've only been on a reining horse one time, but it was just about the funnest thing I've done on horseback. Haha maybe someday when I can afford a decent horse and trainer, I shall become on of those "non-horseman phoney cowboy" reiners
