I have picked up things from thiem, and I even had a Parelli trainer come out. Well he wasnt licensed. He was ALREADY a trainer and he grew up breaking horses, as did his brother, and he used alot of the Parelli philosophy. IT DID work on my rearing gelding, BUT I have never learned Parelli.... so how much of it was Parelli techniques and how much was just natural? I have no clue.
We had already had our thoughts on why the rearing was happening, and he confirmed it, and gave us the left, right introvert stuff... Honestly he could have fit in ALL the catagories, as could any other horse. And it made it more confusing to me. I knew how my geldings personality was. I already knew why he was doing it. The trainer fixed it, and showed me how to continue it. I used that and then started adding my way to it. Bc I'm the one riding him!
So I think the games are fun and everything, but I couldnt terll you if it was Parelli 's training that helped or if it helped this experienced trainer slow down and take time on a horse.
A wise rider will take a little from everyone that gives them advice and make it their own though.
