The Proper Way to Imprint a Horse - Why Human Imprinting Fails- Rick Gore Horsemanship
Here is a link to "The wrong way to imprint a horse" In the below link this so called trainer or horse lover is tormenting this poor foal. She scaring the crap of the horse, she has no concept of pressure and release or giving the horse a right answer, she is being an ignorant predator that is grabbing, restricting and pulling on the scared baby. She is lucky Mama did not kick her ass. Mom was not liking what was being done to this baby, but the idiot human had no clue, she was too busy teaching, too bush being right, too busy thinking she knew what she was doing. This lady probably has 100 other ladies thinking she is so cool and tough and does such a good job since they don't have a clue either. And I think she is listening to guy in wheel chair, who also has no clue what is going on. Any idiot with an ounce of common sense can see that this baby horse is scared, confused, fearful, not learning and is just trying to get away and figure out what the hell is going on. This lady is the typical know it all that thinks forcing and "Showing the horse who is boss" attitude somehow makes her a great trainer. This video is beyond stupid, but many will see it has great training.

Has for my video on the babies in open pasture with other horses and other babies, NOTICE that no horse is killing each other, I get so tired of the Know I all barn people protecting and telling and sharing all their ignorance about how horses will kill each other if they are allowed to be with other horses. STOP listening to idiots that talk of human imprinting where so called humans are somehow smarter than horses, the horse is the best teacher of the horse, when you start thinking you are better than the horse, you ignorance only grows. LESS IS MORE, so if you want to interact with babies and work WITH mom to easy introduce yourself in small non-threatening or NON-TEACHING ways then that is fine, otherwise leave the horse training of babies to mom, there will be lots of time for training later. Trying to rush or take short cuts with this Imprinting nonsense only creates more and bigger problems later.
When I make fun of the baby walking in water and scratching his ear, I do this since it is common in today's Horse world for people, mainly women, to think that they know better than a horse and they need to teach a horse basic things like walking, listening, giving to pressure and many other things that the mom horse is perfectly able and better suited to teach but Stupid humans want to feel important and have to feel needed and want to treat a horse like a pet or a child and all of this just messes up a young horse and ends up teaching a horse bad lessons. Ignorant human imprinting teaches things like a horse is stronger, a horse is smarter, the human is scared and insecure and then after the stupid human teaches all this they want to blame the horse and label the horse mean, stupid, pushy, disrespectful and all other crazy things. LESS IS MORE, even when it comes to training. NEWS FLASH to all the imprinting followers, A horse does not need you to teach it how to be a horse, that is what his mom will do if you idiots stay out of it and mind your own business.
