 Conversations from our IHTC

Discussion on our IHTC group-about the DVD "The Horse That Could Not Trot". Jean Luc Cornille and Stacy Wilson.
Stacy Wilson: The horse that could not trot was so educational on a lot of levels. Don't want to spoil it for those that have not seen it yet, but have to wonder how many horses are labeled lame, lazy or bad behavior when in fact many times it is none of those things. I was so fascinated at how I could see more and more what was going on as the video progressed and the root cause was slowly revealed. 

The ending was simply incredible.

JLC, what is your outlook when you encounter these unusual cases, did you have doubts back then if the horse could be re-educated? I loved the way that you never punish the horse, but seem to just take it all in to try ...

Response to the Waspish Ghosts of Theological Thinking.

Part II


(E-mails after e-mails!  We have been submerged by riders, trainers, and horse owners recognizing ghosts around them.

The purpose is not to educate the ghosts, since they already know it all, but instead to unravel the danger of opinions and theories unrelated to the horse’s physiology.)


I was cited in a reference of a strange theory and entered a discussion about the telescopic action of the neck. I pointed out that even as a metaphor, the expression "telescopic action” was inappropriate since there is no telescopic action at all in ...

Response to the waspish ghosts of theological thinking.

 

(Recently we have been under attack of a few ghosts who are loading facebook and other blogs with theories not even vaguely related to the way the horse’s physique effectively functions. They take a picture or a short video segment out of context and go on the rampage trying to show their science. I never read these blogs but Helyn keeps an eye on distorted use of our information . The funny part is that once this response was published these waspish ghosts of theological thinking are so concentrated on their self that they did not even realize that I was referring to them).
