My head feels like someone is trying to split it open with an icepick, and I’ve had this weird space-y ness in my ear all day (I can hear out of it just fine, but it sounds/feels like there’s wind in that ear).

…And what the fuck even. Sinuses? Ear infection? Inoperable brain tumour that will ultimately lead to my demise? 

No idea, but it needs to stop now, please and thank you.

Look, bro.

1) If you are this desperate to get my attention, send an ask to my inbox with your username on it, and I will reply to you. I ignored your snide reblog the first time because I had to be out the door and didn’t have time to reply; then you sent that dumbass anonymous ask, and now you’re in my tag, jumping up and down and screeching.

Chill the fuck out, yo.

2) I have a solid history of backing my points up with links re: horse training. It’s kind of a Thing. Meanwhile, you and your friends have provided … nothing.

3) This wasn’t even about horse training; this was about one of your buddies being snarky while also being incorrect. This is not you making any kind of point at all; this is just you being a douche. 

Anonymous asked: Why do you nevereverever seem to have results? Proof? A repeatable experiment? These things are vital to scientific theory and research and, well, reality.

…Proof of what? 

This is no disease; you don't need a cure: I'm teaching my Paint classical dressage in a bitless bridle.

the-arena-ballerina:

First of all, you have totally deviated from riding dressage bitless to ‘forceful’ methods of training, and so this isn’t even related. But I’ll play.

You can not in your right mind claim that bitless bridles are the least forceful, strictly because the very PHYSICS of it include placing force on a sensitive area of the horses face, as does a bit (before you waste your time giving me a physics lesson).

Do you know what IS the most forceful method of training a horse in dressage? Any method which people abuse. Any method where an untrained hand is pulling and shoving and yanking and not understanding the gravity of the tool they have in their hands.

If you’re going to make the claim that bitless bridles are the key to achieving dressage training through the least force, then this conversation is over, because you clearly are about as fanatical as the Westboro Baptist Church if you think that there is one saviour to end all forcefulness in training, and that there is a ‘correct’ piece of tack to use in training. That’s short-sighted and feeble-minded. 

Did you find that rant enjoyable? 

I have no desire to get into a debate with you over force. Mostly because equestrians can’t seem to grasp the actual definition of force. My issue with you was:

A) Your “bitless bridles aren’t tradition,” statement, which is untrue.

And B) Gentle training that can achieve the same results as traditional training is just as valid.

narutoe asked: im pretty sure animals do care what happen to their bodies after their death dickwad

No, they don’t. You know why? Because they are dead. Worrying is not a possibility after that point. 

But you know what animals do care about? Living. Which means that killing them, most of them while they are still babies, is fucking cruel.

narutoe:

i think its so disrespectful when vegetarians refuse to eat a dish that was made for them ahead of time “because it has meat in it,” like an animal died for it to be eaten but now its going to be thrown away for someone’s “healthy conscious.” like its already sad that they died but…

I think it’s so disrespectful when people make other people meals without bothering to check what their dietary requirements are first.

This makes me feel really angry omg.

Animals give zero fucks if their carcass is “put to use” after their death. 

Refusing to consume animal products is a refusal to partake in violence where violence is avoidable and unnecessary, full stop. 

This is no disease; you don't need a cure: I'm teaching my Paint classical dressage in a bitless bridle.

Screw your stereotypes and modern dressage bs!

Seeing as you can’t use a bitless bridle in any recognized dressage competition I’d love to see how this one pans out.

she doesn’t need your…

I’m talking classical, not ancient, but thank you for reminding me.

…I’m pretty sure Antoine de Pluvinel qualifies as classical? 

And regardless; many classical riders were quite clear in not being “forceful” with the horse and making sure the horse enjoyed the work. Like:

"Sire, when I said that one has to avoid beating the horse in the beginning of the training for the reasons I have given, I also said if it is possible. But I go further and claim that it is unnecessary to beat the horse in the beginning, the middle, or the end (if one can help it), as it is much more necessary to train him by gentleness (if there is the means) than by harshness, since a horse who works with pleasure moves much more gracefully than a horse who is dominated by force."

So… I’m pretty sure that any method that uses the least force as possible while still achieving classical dressage is going to be correct.
