Wow thanks for calling me stupid :) so that tallies up to how many names I've been called now...?
Oh well I've tried to explain my viewpoint as clearly as possible but apparently it makes me a stupid bitch. I do understand where most people are coming from, however I still find it rude and demeaning, along with conceited, that anyone would suggest one discipline as the basis for all others. Horse training is horse training and each discipline has its own goals, however the methods are strikingly similar. This does not mean that everyone started doing stuff from one majikal discipline, just that good trainers have their stuff figured out and horses tend to act like horses and similar methods tend to work on them. But each discipline has different goals, and to truly and correctly "do" any discipline you must commit yourself to learning it, not just dabble. No discipline is so easy that everyone can just dabble in it. Posted via Mobile Device
