Actually that is not true.
She asked that this thread not become an ANTI
please refrain from making my post an anti-Parelli thread.
And I haven't said a **** thing against that training method.
The thread is about NATURAL dressage and since the person selected is a level 3 Parelli and the OP is also a Parelli follower it is going to be a normal course to discuss that training method with dressage.
The fact is that having a bond with the horse in a sensative way IS dressage (at least GOOD dressage). Just the two methods go about it in different ways.
I would hope this thread does not degenerate into bashing ANY method that gets the horse to respond to the desires of the trainer...PERIOD !
