Each time a thread has been started that contains an reference to the Parelli Methods it has had to be locked or removed. This is because certain members insist that Parelli is the only method and they become very argumentative, and sometimes just plain rude.
Parelli is most definitely acknowledged as a well known trainer of Natural Horsemanship. He is not the only Natural horsemanship trainer, to say he is the best is a matter of personal opinion. To say that the Parelli Method is the only way to go and if a horse is not responding it is because the rider is not doing it properly is just an unfair statement that is also merely an opinion.
When members of this forum post responses in a Parelli thread, it should be with the sole intention of providing helpful advice. It is a shame that each time a practitioner of traditional methods, or any method other then Parelli offers any type of comment the thread is immediately forced into extinction.
The bottom line is, this is a horseforum and all methods of horse training are welcome here as long as they are safe to the horse and rider. These threads are meant to be used for educational purposes and should remain as such.
