Yeah. I've heard of Pat Parelli, and I know that TOOONS of people like him...but why? I'm not saying he's bad-I'm just curious as to why? I like to get as much information as possible. So what does he do that sets him apart from the others?

For me, it was the whole method being a little 'softer' maybe? I was new to horses with a nutcase horse. It was something that fit what my mare needed at the time and something that helped me understand horses in simple terms. The 'horsenality' thing really helped me. Placing my horse in a category helped me understand how to deal with her.

I've been to a couple of his clinics. I was a Saavy Club Member for a couple years. I personally just really enjoy his laid back personality. He is humorous, entertaining and is good with people. I don't care for Linda. I think she uses Pat's status as her own and can be a little confused herself at times and uncoordinated.

I have now 'graduated' from Parelli....not in a level...just in developing more horse knowlege where I think some of the Parelli stuff is quite comical now. I no longer believe in the jiggle the rope with the snap hitting the horse thing and I definitely don't believe in the stand still or sit in a chair while the horse runs around you as lunging. For me now, I have ventured out onto other avenues with some other trainers and understand more of the philosophy in training horses (at least from my perspective) and am happy mixing up techniques to suit my needs.

I still would love to go to one of the Parelli clinics again, not because I worship his techniques as the 'only' one....but because I really like him and the show. He is very inspirational and funny....very entertaining. I would also like to see Monty, John/Josh or Buck...or even some of the underdogs with similar styles....even some of the ones that have done the Mustand Challenge.

Here is my daughter, Pat and myself....

Thank you for helping me understand!!!

I'm hoping to-someday-visit Monty Roberts' farm and hopefully *fingers crossed* will so an internship someday!! I just think that he's so cool. I love his "think like a horse" mentality. I'll have to look into Pat Parelli.

Thank you!

Monty Roberts, Pat Parelli, Ingrid Klimke, and many others. I really liked Her father, Reiner Klimke. I feel that you can learn something from every trainer. Wether it's a new technique or something you shouldn't do. :)

Very true!

I like Buck and I'm starting to pay more attention to Martin Black.

I've been hearing a lot about Buck (brannaman(?))

I'll have to google his methods I think.....
