No, because he teaches better and does things with horses a lot better.

I personally just started parelli with the liberty and horse behavior dvd sets and I think they are very good because he helps you pay more attention to what your horse wants and feels instead of just making youe horse do what you want....I have watched clinton anderson and read his excerpt s in my monthly horse magazine and I find that he is very simliar to parelli just a littke more dry in the way he teaches...
I have used some of the material from both and my tb is a lot more responsive to parelli methods and he seems to enjoy it more as well....
So unfortunately every horse is different as well as every owner/trainer is different, and if your see a. Parelli based trainer he or she could also put a bit of there own views or twists on it as well, because when it comes diwn to it we are all different so weither it is parelli or anderson it turthful just comes down to what you and your horse enjoy more and always remeber. Your view is not the same as others so respect that abd just give advice of what you have experienced.
And yes buck branaham is awsome too, so try all three at least once and see who works better for you and your horse

I say there's a disconnect because some of the most poorly behaved horses I've ever met we're strictly Parelli trained, so while the method seems decent it doesn't look like it works for everyone.

Personally, what I've found, is if it's done the way it's meant to be done, which is adjusting things to the horses type of mindset and smarts so he understands and doesn't get bored, it works on every horse...
People tend to blame the way their horse is on either the horse himself or the way he was trained, instead of saying they themselves caused it.
In people's minds it works like 'people with horse problems'
In their horse's mind it works like 'horse with people problems'.

A lot of times I hear people say "Ohh, I tried this trainer's method, but it just wasn't for me.'
Does the horse get an opinion? No because he can't speak... The most inquisitive and well behaved horses i've met are all Parelli trained, properly. This includes mine

By the way, I'm not saying Parelli is right and all other trainers are wrong.. I just hate how much discrimination there is against Parelli. I know from years of doing his methods and watching others use them that they work perfectly fine on every horse if done correctly.

Pegasus, I was amused at your tactic for getting more active than your filly and how well it worked. Most people would try the opposite and get no where. We need to stop and assess if something isn't working and maybe try the opposite. I look at it this way, as long as a person isn't inflicting pain then it's ok to try new tactics and not worry if it's right or wrong. The horse will let you know.

The greatest lesson my horse taught me is to live in the moment, because that is what we are all doing. We can't live in the past nor the future, but right now. The mind is a bit of an oddity in that it gets noisy, noisy with tho'ts of what has happened, what might happen and what is going to happen and we need to tame those noises. There's a misconception that if we hear voices, we are nuts. Surprise, we all hear voices, our own, in the form of thoughts. How many times have we thought "well if she says this, I'll say that" and make up this hypethetical argument when the situation doesn't exist. Those are the type of thoughts that keep us from peacefully enjoy "now". Your horse lives in the now, he doesn't think about what he ate yesterday or hope for a treat next week. It's not easy to clear the mind completely, it takes a lot of practice but try it when next you are with your horse. Think only of your breathing and nothing else. This quiets the thoughts in your head as you focus on breathing.

I do 7 games with my horse and must say that it really helped me and him to understand each other better. He is a hotblooded ex-race horse the games make him think and work things out which keeps him calm and concentrated. I am very pleased with the results and I hope to go much further

I became fascinated with Parelli after I vacationed at a Dude Ranch in Montana where all their horses were Parelli trained. It was a great experience and the horses were wonderful. I even played the circling game with one of their horses (with help from dude ranch of course)!

I was pretty new to horses at that point and had only been taking English lessons once a week for about 5 months so I didn't have much experience with horses on the ground. Studying the 7 games really helped me to understand "horse psychology" and made working with them less intimidating. My trainer let me take out a horse after my lessons sometimes to practice the 7 games. I only got through the first 3 games with one of her horses because she doesn't always have a horse to spare for me to practice with, but I find that I use the Friendly Game and Porcupine Game quite a bit around the barn for various scenarios (like asking the horse to move over in the crossties).

What I liked most about the 7games is that for horse novices (like I was before) it gives a pretty solid foundation of horsemanship, groundwork and allows you to understand the "why" of horse behavior so you can handle other situations by thinking it through.

I've not studied any of the higher levels, but I found the 7 games (level 1) helped me to be a better horsewoman when I was first starting out and I still use the principles along with what I learn from my current trainer.
