Now THIS is trust and horsemanship

I have never seen anything like this...ever. From Horse Nation at
Video du Jour: Doma India HORSE NATION

"Ive never seen anything like this bizarre yet mesmerizing display of natural horsemanship in the tradition of Doma India, an Argentinian system of horse-training. The Doma India School was first established over 50 years ago in San Luis, Argentina as an innovative horse-taming program based on non-violence and respect for the animal. A bit of background on the Doma India from a spotty English translation of doma-india.com:
The method is to tame the horse according to its nature, avoiding fear and pain, and earning their trust and loyalty. This method provides us clear notions of how to treat the horse, and when and how to teach, and what we want to achieve. The horse learns by persuasion, and by understanding its nature, behavior and psychology, we achieve this persuasion and teach exercises that will make the horse an animal suitable for any discipline."

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I haven't watched the video yet (loading slowly) but I don't think all methods are pain based??

I certainly didn't inflict pain on my horse to train him Nor did I use fear... nor did I baby him.

I also know quite a lot of people whose methods also don't inflict pain or fear..

So what methods are they referring to?

Okay I just watched it..

How does that contribute to training for multiple disciplines? It looked like what what you do with a sleepy kitten than actual horse riding..

I guess the internet is lacking in subtly, the title was meant to be tongue-in-cheek

Oh thank GAWD, because I was wondering if you'd lost your marbles!

This idjit reminds me of Nevzorov in the early days when he actually rode his horses. Same froot loops approach.

Pretty cool, but some of it made me feel a little dirty for watching...

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?
