    Northern....I thought you were a Parelli-faithful?

    Either way...I disagree with his handling of Catwalk...and quite a few others that I believe could have been handled better. But I have seen real abuse. That was borderline mistreatment.

    I don't know if it is still up on youtube, but I'm sure you can do a search for "Parelli and Catwalk" and come up with about a hundred videos about it.

    I don't think that was abuse either, bad training yeah, abuse no. If I were the horse though I'd kick him in the face :P

    Sorry but I was there and watching. It was horrific. The horse was very clearly distressed.
    I was one of those who demanded a full refund of my tickets because of that disgusting display. I have already signed the petition.

    If you tolerate that treatment at a public display then god only knows what happens behind closed doors. Nothing good will come of tolerating it. Sorry but that is Horse ABUSE and high profile. You let them get away with it in public then others are going to decide that that sort of behavior is ok.

    Sorry-I agree with the majority here. There are certainly other cases that merit investigation much more than the hoarders who starve animals, etc. Not worth wasting $$ for an investigation just to prove your point.
    If you (faye and Northern) feel that strongly, then spend your own $$ to spread the word to the people who are being fleeced. But please don't spend mine for me. I might need it to buy a new stick! (knockoff of course)

    I didnt see real abuse, (obviously the video wasnt very clear) but I saw a frusterated man and a even more frusterated horse. When I picture abuse I picture a horse being whipped with a chain or starved to death, which is happening. Im sure PETA has got this case covered and we don't have to spend out money/ time looking for abuse in it.

    I have no real feelings about 'TV' trainers one way or the other, but my gut tells me they are probably better businessmen than horsemen. If you want to send a message to a businessman, convince your friends to not buy his products and more importantly, write to all the companies and organizations that sponser him and his events. No sponser wants to be associated with bad press (just look at how fast sponsers drop athletes when they become a liability).

    Franknbeans it wouldnt be your $$ as the event happened in the UK and thus it would be our .

    So you are saying that because parelli has a known name it is alright for him to abuse horses in public and not be pulled up about it?
    Smacks a bit of one rule for them and anouther for the rest of us.

    ANY animal abuse should not be tolerated at all, perticularly not from a known name who has a cult like following and 100's of thousands of total novices following what they do and deciding 'well parelli says do this so it can't possibly be horse abuse'.
