It was probably to simulate the impact that a person in a show exserts on their horses mouth when they wear a jacket. :roll:

And you never know when a machine is going to buck you off, so of course the kid is wearing a helmet. :roll:

"[45] What does Alexander do, if not riding? What about Haute Ecole?

NHE is developing, new knowledge is coming, old knowledge is being rethought, values are being revalued. Now Alexander teaches the horses Latin. Details will be available very soon, when the new film is ready.

[44] Why there have not been new photos in the gallery of Alexander aback for so long?
Are the horses healthy?


All the horses are healthy, but there are and will be no riding photos. Alexander stopped riding about two years ago, and is not going to continue this practice.
He doesn't ride on ethical grounds, first of all. And besides, even the most permissive riding doesn't profit anything horse's health."

F.A.Q.

"He was the first to tell everyone what equestrian sport really consists of:
" … equestrian sport by nature can’t be even defined as a sport. Yes, any sport includes records and victories, but these records and victories are gained by one’s own sweat and blood, by one’s own pains and efforts. And equestrian sport (if we study the issue) represents parasitizing on physical abilities of another living being which does not want to be engaged in this sport but forced to it by pain and beating. So why the hell we call it a sport?
Among all sportsmen there are no more than two percent of real sadists, and others just do not realize what they’re doing”.
A. Nevzorov “The Horse Crucified and Risen”

Alexandår Nevzorov

""In NH [natural horsemanship] a horse has its part of course. But it matters no more than a cow matters in a barbeque. Its role is integral and even critical, but totally unenviable.
Sure, NH has its "front end" which is shown publicly. Everybody sees and knows it while it is presented by business disciples of Pat Parelli, who is now considered the head of HN.
The "back end" is just a collection of simple tricks taken from cattlemen, some specifics and a firm knowledge that there are thousands of "fat ladies" who want to "have a ride" but are scared of horses."

Horse Revolution

Now, I ask you, how can anyone think a man who spends his time teaching Latin to horses is nuts?

I would love to see his horse speak fluent Latin. Oh, and even carry on a real conversation with him.

Nuts, man. That is what is in his brain.

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

I'm getting sick of these bitless extremists.I've always used either d or O ring snaffles,switching to western show shanks for western pleasure shows.I have never,never hauled on a horses mouth like that and never will.It's bad riders that cause us responsible and kind riders to get a bad name and become targets for the mindless fools who fall for such stupidity fed to them by quacks like this guy.
And ever notice how extremists like this use only footage of said bad riders?

I know! Like if your riding like that, you just shouldn't be riding!

I agree.When I'm giving riding lessons to a beginner I always teach them what proper contact with your horses mouth is and usually have them working on a loose rein until they can maintain a proper, Independent seat.Keep in mind I won't have any one going over a trot off the lunge line until they can do so,so they feel comfortable not being able to hold the reins.Because I find beginners who haul on the reins too hard are trying to so to balance themselves.Which I suppose is no excuse,but as A trainer and instructor I find you have to give newbies some slack as they just don't know any better and most are pretty good when you kindly let them know it's not right and offer some help and advice to them.

The sad thing is some people don't know when they're riding improperly or I've found just couldn't give a hoot if they are or not.
