    Default Horses who train their people

    http://www.horsetrainingvideos.com/h...aining-911.htm

    This gave me a nice mental image of horses in the barn watching "people-training" DVDs and how successful this horse would be with his tried 'n true method. ;-)

    I don't know who that trainer is, but it seems he has come across some parellites before.

    I think I know who that one responder "Tess" is also.
    I hope that trainer will take the time to respond to those comments.

    I think you're right!

    I wish the Parelli crowd would take the time to read this. Not that they'd learn anything, but hey...

    Ha, my horse tries to train me all the time. But never succeeds. Nope, never. Well, except for that peppermint thing, but we won't go there.

    Mine have me trained also. Just had some watermelon.
    Of course, what would be a hot summer afternoon without watermelon?

    Geez, when I read the title, I thought this thread was about my horse . She's a first class people-trainer. Is there some way she could make money off this, because I could really use more money.

    I learned about horse training from watching hundreds of horses interact. They won't hesitate to threaten death to their best friend to get their way. WHY do people think it's 'natural' to play kissy kissy to get along with horses?

    Oh, my mare is 28 and spoiled. But even before I retired her, I knew it was always a good idea to have another knowledgeable horse person watching us occasionally. After a couple of decades, these horsies tend to get our 'number'. Even the good ones that are well trained.

    I have one pony especially that would watch the people training videos and ask "Why doesn't that work on my human" .

    reminds me of children training their parents - definitely true for my daughter who wants to play free browser games like grepolis all the time now and gets her war more and more often...

    We co-train. He knows when I put the big green tub in the car it's time to come in from grazing by the pond to go back into his pasture. I know that when he stops by the gate and points with his muzzle it needs scritching. It's a dialogue, facilitated by a peeps exchange.
