So many wonderful friendships, bonds and training videos on AND which show emotional bonding, understanding, consideration and trust. I wondered how members chose what to select, one method or own methods evolved from a variety of experience, adaptation and which 'known' trainers they most align to...and WHY?
Looking and watching some beautiful video demonstrations from around the world, I wonder when seeing these what methods were used in training. Sometimes it is Caroline Resnik's Waterhole Rituals, similar use by Cynthia Royal who has Blanco the Star of Lord of the Rings.
I love the interactions in this demo and see body movement similar to Romy's videos I think.
Published on 16 Jan 2013 a Mosie Trewhitt video, you can see Mosie on Facebook as well.
From Mosie - An hour away from home on a public beach with dogs and people running around us.
Annie was a dream.
This whole day was a dream - Annie brought all of my dreams to life. She never ceases to amazing me. Annie - I don't know how I can ever thank you for everything you are to me and all you have shown me.http://youtu.be/0ZqkWmS_LZE
Also Farrah de Johnette who has also taken a CR rituals route. http://www.fdhorsemanship.com/
Chatting to a friend about methods he was looking into these were his favoured routes:
First Difference, Principles the program is based upon which excluded the NH trainers like Monty Roberts and Pat Parelli but included Klaus Ferdinand Hemfling, Caroline Resnik and Friendship Training - which is my friends chosen path and I asked for his reasons :
KFH : Dominant horse using dominant horse body language
Carolyn : Lead horse using lead horse body language
FT : Horse buddy using Equine Peer Attachment Principles
This is one of the best difference of the best programs I had in my mind at the time I found FT!
Second Difference, Area selection in the program :
KFH : Uses Picadero
Carolyn : Uses larger Picadero where the horse can escape the human if he feels the need to
FT : 500 acres! HECK NO PROBLEM!!!
Third Difference, Equipment necessary :
KFH : Whip (to guide the horse)
Carolyn : Grass reed (to guide the horse and to keep ourselves safe without hitting the horse!)
FT : NOTHING!
We also discussed many behaviourists, ERC, Ben Hart, Shawna Karrash, Equilibre, etc. http://www.on-target-training.com/ http://www.equineresearch.org/
We looked at Liz Mitten Ryan, One With The Herd, most of us do not have those fabulous acres for liberty and travel for our horses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oS1LAuQA6Rw
Honza Blaha is TOO Parrelli, dominance training style for many and his horses do not have the softness shown by SVG School. http://www.honzablaha.cz/en
PNH versus Stina Herberg SVG using CR rituals http://youtu.be/Y17nv-xny_s
Emma Massingale has some super demo videos but I have no idea what her foundational training is based on. http://www.emmamassingale.com/
Equine tourism has many good archives and tends towards the bitless community. This is an example. http://www.equinetourismcommunity.com/i ... -language/
Who are your favourite 'known' trainers and why?
