Re: RC: training schools???

Case in point , look at the whole Boggs versus IAHA lawsuit. Stories went on for years about the abuses from that guy..(remember the cattle prod and pond of water) but it wasn't until he got disciplined that he really turned mean as a snake and went to court .   Yeah, you can word things the way Maggie did in a public forum,  i.e. "That trainer? He sure knows how to use all the latest devices and he really gets that hot and spirited look out of them all the time!"   versus, "Yes, he/she will really help your horse to learn to carry itself correctly". If it was a friend and a private conversation though, I'd sure as hell tell. Save the friend hundreds of dollars and a damaged animal.  Beth
