Re: RC: Please explain NH to me.
My take on these "NH" programs are that they are people training systems.
Horses can learn anything presented in a calm consistant manner. It's the
people who need the work on being consistant giving the same verbal & body
language cues. The round pen (or little square pen) keeps the 2 in close
enough proximity to work things out.
There are so many people getting horses with no previous experience with
animals, there is nothing "natural" about it---for the people. That's why
the different programs work for different people, it depends on what the
people are more comfortable with.
