[RC] horse training in general - Ed Kilpatrick

some good points there. look at it like this,  any kind of training method, in the wrong hands, improperly applied can have very bad results.  and i certainly agree that horses have different "horsenalities" and some things work better for certain types.  sometimes my wife comes in from work, asks, what did you do all day?, i tell her, i studied horse psychology!  i kind of divide them up into 4 or 5 different  categories, like human beans!  as for round pen work,  if you know what you are doing, and what you are trying to accomplish, it is fine.  i do some of it, i know what i am doing and get great results.  if you dont, then dont do it, but dont knock it either.  i have had to clean up behind some people who thought they knew what they were doing in the round pen, or training in general, and that is harder than starting a horse that doesnt know anything.  so, there are lots of ways to train a horse, just make sure that you and the horse know whats going on.  & nbsp;  ed
