I tried to like Parelli, I really did.

Truly, I watch any trainer I can find on RFD and I always find something I can use, no matter how small. There's always something.
Until Pat Parelli and Linda. I've never found anything usable.

So I tried again today. I watched their show and I SEARCHED for something usable....nothing. I wanted to like it, I wanted to find something that wasn't completely BS. <sigh> I guess I'm a Parelli hater.

You can find something useful by watching them..... a what NOT to do with your horse if nothing else...

I don't blame you...I can't either. It's a hard pill to swallow.

I was talking to a friends wife who is getting into horses and doesn't know a whole lot but is wanting to learn right, she took a couple of lessons from a "Parelli trainer" and told me she thought it was ridiculous. She has moved onto a dressage coach.

I did the same thing. I wanted to find something to like about them. The only thing I could find was "Uhm, weeeelll..They have an interest in horses, too. I guess."
I think that I laughed too hard at the ferret on his face, so I couldn't really take him seriously.

I don't know why but certain 'trainers' (like the Parelli's) just tick me off and even if they do have something valuable to say amongst the dross I struggle to get past the irritation feeling they give me so I have to walk away

I have nothing against Pat or Linda. I do however dislike their philosophy behind their training. The introvert, extrovert, right, left brain BS. I just don't get it.

Their overall training really isn't much different than others. Most use the same techniques.

Occasionally I do use one or more of their seven games. The yo-yo game is good to help get the horse lighter with giving to pressure on the poll.
