We are fortunate to have so many good horse people to help us along. There is enough that we can choose which we think will work for us and our horse or if necessary experiment till we find what is right for us . It's nice to have choices. I don't think I would have ever made it in the old 'tie um down & sack em out days"
I'll have to take a peek at your Jason Patrick when time permits. Just got done with a very late lunch and am ready to go spend some time with my guy, Cash. Planning on a ride!
Are you a cowgirl hippy chick?

Anyone else a fan of Jason Patrick?
I saw him at the Can Am ( in London, Ontario and in Nova Scotia earlier this year and now I am hooked as a fan. I love his down to earth style, common sense approach and, who can forget, his green boots! :)

I just got home from a long day at the Dennis Reis Program. I was planning on going tomorrow too. I've decided to do some other things. I will just say "I" personally relate to most other natural horsemanship trainers more then I do him. It was a much smaller gathering then I've been to or seen for others. They were televising some of the portions and those really drug out cause everything had to be prep'd and sometimes they'd retape segments. After two hours in the morning we'd only really seen one session. Buying his programs was plugged way more then I've ever experienced too. He does have to make a living and support a few people that were traveling with him. He does have his followers that find him to be wonderful.
His wifes Arabian was fabulous and she can ride awesome! The 4h cheeseburgers hit the spot for lunch.
One section was done on bits and bridles and that had parts in it that I wish I could remember but by then I was having a really hard time staying awake. That bed is gonna feel really good after sitting on bleachers all day. I'm not too old to ride horses but I'm way to old to sit on those bleachers that long. Keep Horsen Around!!

I watched him on RFDTV. I do not understand a word he says. LOL... his diction or volume or something is too low for me.... but so what right? go for it!!

Has anyone heard of Dennis Reis? He is doing a week-end program near me so I'm going. He is on RFD. Horses respond really well to him
so I think it will be good..

Imagine if you only had one school teacher your whole life.... at least enough people care about training to keep all these trainers busy.. and they each have a huge following.... I have one personal trainer for my lifetime in person... now he can teach me how to ride the horse he trained... but I've read alot of books by every trainer.... I find honestly though that I have to just do it now.... it is about trusting Oliver enough to get on him and ask him to take me around..... I think I'm done reading... I've been in the classroom as we say for 5 of my 5 years, LOL.... now I need field training. Wish me luck!! Jen

I agree that taking something from a lot of different natural instructors is good and then make it your own.

I have been reading some books by John Lyons & think he is amazing so down to earth. I have also been taught by our Parelli Instructor here in NZ Russell Higgins & he is very good too. I do believe everyboby has alot to offer & not everything suit an individual we all have strengths & weaknesses, but I do know its alot of fun when you get it right.A big thumbs up to everyboby who gives a horse a chance to talk & express itself .

I like a group where you can talk about lots of different trainers and what they bring to the table.... I don't believe in all one way or the other about anything else in life.... I do find that my horses are good teachers too as well as all the guys I learn from....

I was taught Natural Horsemanship by Gary Convery in Ontario and he followed Dorrance etc. I believe he took the best of all the leaders or teachings and made it his own.
