I guess this issue upset me more than I thought. I woke up this morning
fretting about it! I recently read (and have read in the past) "Research
suggests that a good night's sleep can help you remember a newly learned
movement skill, such as playing the scales on a piano or serving a tennis
ball. In a study, people who learned a new movement skill and then slept
before testing demonstrated greater improvement in accuracy and speed
compared to people who learned the skill and were tested before sleeping.
" (For more info search for "sleep dependent motor skills"). Are horse
brains so very different in how they learn? I guess my feeling is that
none of the 3 wonderful, popular and skilled clinicians gave much thought
to whether what they were doing was actually in the best interests of the
colts or their future riders. Phooie on that.
I woulde LOVE to talk to someone who has taken one one of these
wonder-horses after one of these 'miracle' sessions!
Me too! Anyone on this list have a horse that went through a "miracle"
session? Report, please!
