One of the reasons for posting on this thread is a silly one.....my username is nhblond. When I first joined I used to see "nh" here and "nh" there in threads. I was so confused because to me, nh means New Hampshire the state I live in. It didn't take rocket science to figure out by the context of the threads that people were not referring to my home state! Eventually I came to understand that it is the abbrev. that many of you use for Natural Horsemanship. I had to really laugh when I figured it out, Duh! Notice the second part of my username???? Anyway, most of you know that I am an adult beginner. Natural horsemanship makes me think of a trainer that I hooked up with in Maine who turned out to be a total Quack!!!!! I do like alot of the principles, but it is not gospel to me. Anyway, I added my location to my profile/avatar so that anyone who dislikes Natural horsemanship will not assume my username refers to that discipline, LOL !!!
