Foal
Sorry I haven't read through all the other replies.

My feelings on it are this:

It makes me sad to see other people disrespected number one. Some have been downright cruel/mean and demeaning on some of the other forums when this subject comes up.

If Parelli or (Fill in the Blank Trainer) doesn't agree with you or your methods, there is never a reason to be rude or to throw cheap shots with glee.

I wish those that don't agree would stay out of the post unless the subject asks directly Anyone want to make fun of Fill In The Blank Trainer. Which would be of course childish.

There have been plenty of times I was really interested in reading about Parelli for an example and learn more and had to stop because of bickering.

I don't know when it became politically correct to bash him or anyone's methods, especially for those who are having success with those methods or are just intrigued with them like me.

Okay, I just have to say, This:

But I think some of the reasons some people are against it is because they 1) don't understand and 2) belive their methods are the one and only methods to be done just because they have got their horses to do what they want.
Is the view that really makes me see red.

Personally, I am not 'against' parelli, persay, but I have seen a lot of negative things come out of people attempting his methods. There is a lot of room for error when learning simply from a DVD, which is what a lot of parelli followers rely on.

I find it insulting that you think because I choose not to follow Parelli, I somehow don't understand what he is doing, or am not able to comprehend it...

And also the idea that because I don't choose to follow Parelli because I believe it's 'my way or the highway' or I an=m too blind to see that there is more than one way to train a horse...

I have tried many, many different methods of training. I have found, through my experience, my own way of doing things, that incorporates a lot of different methods.

Also, While I agree that Parelli in some cases is awesome for establishing a bond, for getting a good solid base of groundwork, etc. It is not always practical for the performance disciplines of riding. Therefore, if I want to compete and do well at my chosen disciplines, I need another method of training for these sports. I could not be wholly Parrelli, even if I wanted to.

I just find it interesting that the people that ressurect a thread that went to bed some time ago gets brought up...by a Parelli fan and instead of just simply saying they do Parelli and are happy with it have to slam those that A) left this thread to die, and B)"don't understand it and think their way is the only way.

The problem is that I have found that the description "my way is the only way", "you just don't understand" and "you must be doing something wrong" to be far more descriptive of standard Parelli follower tirades than other disciplines.

A NH section was created on this site so those that like this way of training can express their views and like minded members know where to go to respond and BriocheIsLove's post simply brought up a lot of feelings that can get out of hand.
