    You're the one who brought it up.

    So....what?
    Well, toots, seems you can't. Reread from a different POV and you'll find the answer, grasshopper.

    Man, this thread has just delivered on so many levels. From the First Baptist Church of Beaverlicking to a good ol' fashioned Texas hillbilly rootin' tootin' bulletin board shoot 'em up. "Are you not entertained?"

    Hey, George Jones just died. You can't expect folks from Somewherein, Texas to take that news with a smile and a howdyedo.

    PS still, sorry that there was a dead horse to get it started.

    All I'm noticing is prickly right now. Gone, I've read and enjoyed your posts for some time now. So take it as a friendly heads up that someone who usually enjoys your stuff thinks you seem to be throwing some shade, and I can't quite figure out why. Can't for the life of me figure out what Crone said that got your hackles up, but it sure seems that way. *tip of the friendly hat*

    Well, thanks for the tip! I have written my reply several times and can't get the words to come out like I want. Gah!! So, I'll let it go. My POV 'wasn't what Crone thought' is the easy version.

Truly, I don't know what all he does, only what I've seen on RFD infomercials, but I have to do more with my guys, so "I" feel safe(r). My nerve has bebopped on out of my confidence. This isn't quite what you mean or were looking for, my POV is more ground handling is better for me. Which is one reason I bought Jackie, the Wonder Mini.
    Yep, that pretty much sums it up. Well said... I have Rowdy, the Wonder Mini at my place. He's a hoot.

    I don't use groundwork as a breaking a horse tool, in as much as I use it for refining my riding horses on the ground. Some days I just don't have time to ride, or whatever. I can pull one out and do some stuff, play with the ponies. My POV has changed. It used to be bail on, ride fast... Now it's more about me & the horse, just whatever it is.
    Did that make sense or make me sound batshit crazy?? lol

    This just made me snort... in a good way... way to sum it up.

    This book has the sort of info I'm interested in now. Actually training, not mindless roundpenning and fooling around, accomplishing nothing. I have the mini training book for driving and jumping my Jacks over tiny fences. Dressage on the longe line. Oh, and by the by, he acts like he knows what he's doing already!! This is a good thing so he can teach me now!

    Also, the book looks like it goes back to needing the human to read the horse, just like if you were in the saddle.
