I am a fan of both Clinton Anderson and Pat Parelli, but it was Parelli's techniques that I used when working through ground issues with my pony. I achieved amazing results using his methods.

I think the reason Parelli gets a bad reputation for creating spoiled, rude horses is because Parelli is often picked up by inexperienced and uneducated horse owners. He puts his program in such a nice little package- "buy this kit, watch dvds, play the seven games, move up distinct levels, and then your horse is perfect!" I'm not saying this is what Parelli actually SAYS, but I think it's what a lot of the audience hears, or wishes they heard. So you have people with horses who are way too much for them, trying to play little games with them, claiming they are practicing "natural horsemanship," and it just doesn't work.

I think he can be a little rough at times but I get more out of his demos than PP. that being said, I've picked up several tips from PP/LP that have worked well for me.

I heard that CA was so angry and punched his Manager at RTTH in 2011 when it became apparent he wasn't going to win, so maybe his issues extend beyond horses? The person who told this was there, back stage, saw it.
I still watch him on RFDTV and think a lot of what he does has its place, afterall most of them do very similar things to gain respect and trust. Some just do it better, like Chris Coc, IMHO.
