    No biggie, hence my reticence on saying anything.

    Initially.

    Yeah, normally I never say anything on blogs as I don't want to mess with their continuity. This time I just said oh heck, on the fact that newbies might read this.

    Anyone who has horses is training them, for better or for worse, for worse if they fall for some idiotic rap that misuses behavioral science to make twirling a stick sound like some lofty 'method.'

    And I call bs on 'you're not a trainer.' Even someone who's not getting paid is training their own horses, for better or for worse. And we are all consumers of training when we buy into or endorse the carrot stickers. The whole point of this is to get people so they don't fall for these ridiculous supposed methods with the cute sounding 'behavioral science' rap. For heaven's sake, a child molester put up a website with some pictures of him petting horses and some quotes from a book by Alois Podhajsky and everyone was talking about him like he was God Almighty of horse training.

    Too tired to deal, but training is serious. It's not a philosophy .

    Just stop it. OK?

    I could say more, but I won't. Don't go there SLC.

    You know exactly what I'm talking about, so stop spouting training bs that you really have no idea what you're talking about.

    Just stop.

    Trainers don't talk about training unless we're making money. You need to keep talking and it's so full of ****e. I just am so full of it from your end that I don't want to hear anymore.

    Then don't read it. When I think you're full of it, I don't read your stuff. It works great.
