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
