Spyder, how was I suppossed to know that you suggested the sections be added? There was no way of me knowing that.

As a supplement to learning what I can from Karen's DVD's and her book, I plan on taking lessons with that ex-Parelli instructor I mentioned earlier and also going to study with Karen at her place in Florida. I realize that Dressage needs one-on-one instruction, but for the place that my horse and I are at right now, the DVDs and books are working really well for both of us.

To quote my coach (who has ridden at the Olympics):
"That Parelli sh*t has no place in a dressage barn"

Didn't I say NOT to make this an anti-Parelli thread? Thanks, anebel, for respecting that. Since you respected that so well, I'll respect your coach and say that I think he's full of bull and doesn't know what Parelli can do for horses.....even dressage horses.
It's too bad my thread couldn't stay civil. Perhaps no one should post anymore.

If you don't want discussions about the topic that you've posted, then don't post it.
99% of the dressage world doesn't do Parelli. I am willing to bet my saddle that Edward Gal doesn't even know what a carrot stick is, and he just got a higher score doing GP than most people get in training level.
If you would like a more pro-Parelli discussion there is an NH board.

Geez, I'll be one of the first to say i'm not a Parelli fan, but she asked for this not to become a discussion about Parelli, and look where it ended up. Some people are frustrating.

I didn't post this as a debate or suggestion thread. I posted this simply to share with other people interested in DRESSAGE, as I am, who I ALREDY DECIDED I was going to learn from. I didn't ask for anyone's opinions, so really, input from you is not encouraged.

Do you honestly think I care what the dressage world thinks of Parelli? I could care less. I KNOW I'm doing the right thing by my horse, and that's all I care about.

Actually that is not true.

She asked that this thread not become an ANTI Parelli thread.

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 !

I hate parelli, and even I think Anabels post was out of line. Spyder, I certainly see where you were coming from though.

"

OK, this is the thing....I think you sound defensive here. I think I get Anebel's post. I don't think she was saying what you seem to find offensive. She is telling you what her olympic-experienced trainer says about NH.

The point I was trying to make earlier is illustrated by this trainer's comment. If you wish to do upper level dressage you need to consider the opinions of upper level riders and judges. I am not saying you have to like their opinions. I'm not saying you have to agree with them. But you do need to consider them. If they know you are into NH you may well limit your ability to do upper level dressage.

This is not an NH debate. It is always important to consider the political atmosphere of our preferred discipline.
