But HOW did he get that horse to jump on command? A whip?

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

So this is my reply to one of the posts about bad riders that whip a horse to make it go slower. You WHIP a horse to make it go slower? Wouldn't whipping it stimulate the reflex to go FORWARD or RUNAWAY and NOT slow down? Who did these people learn from?

And about the crazy guy, did anyone else notice the transport back in time look? Back to the time when people AND horses wore armor. I just found it ironic.

A pony is a childhood dream, a horse is an adulthood treasure.

This guy actually sounds like that Bear Lover guy who got eaten. I hope he realizes that he is nothing more than a circus trainer...

There is even a video of his horse biting him. Though at the moment I can't find it.

What I don't get is he hasn't started any of his horses. They all came from hard core dressage barns and all had advance training..... all he is doing is making it look better by working with them and further training them without any tack.

I think you were reffering to my post.

Don't ask me- the girls are just stupid, and mean to the horses. It makes me very mad. They laugh when the horse freaks out. Absolutely no communication between horse and rider.

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

I did watch one of their videos from their supposed research center :roll:.
Is it just me or does anyone else see the similarities between this video and those that preach BITLESSBITLESSBITLESS or you'll go to hell? I guess they are going for the shock value but they always choose the videos of the worst of the worst riders on ill-trained horses to show how "horrible and inhumane" the bit is.

I don't get why those people are all like "Set the horse free" What are the horses gonna do once they get free? They'll be hunted, eatin, starved when the resources run low which would happen cause the mass amount of horses that would be set free. They're just so irrational. Horses are much better off with humans. Well most humans, there's the small amount of horses that would be better off free.
