Abby, you are SO right! I had exactly same with my 2 horses: worked for very bossy one, and completely run nuts my nervous one.

He-he... Most of stuff there is same as in his "Gaining Respect". :) And he completely skipped trailer loading even though it's advertised as part of the course - I didn't like this fact at all.

I personally found CA methods helpful (although not all of them). And I'm not fan of Parelli (didn't work for me).
I agree with Kitten_Val. CA methods and get them used if possible to save some money. :)

I requested the free DVD that Parelli offers and it was really fantastic to watch, really it was most inspiring! I was willing to pay the man after I watched it!....but my hubby said hang on...lets see what else is out there and I am glad he did! I recieved Parelli's e-mail news letter and they always have a Q & A section in it. Usually I'm fairly impressed with their answers but in this latest one the gal writing in said that she had a horse that was biting. Parelli actually suggested giving the biting horse a carrot! I was furious! Lol... maybe I reacted too strongly but C'mon! Reward biting???? I ranted to my hubby for about an hour...lol...poor man.... I think Parelli has gone too far with his horsenalities...right brain, left brain...what does that matter if the horse is biting you? Ok.. I won't rant here (too much) but I was just really disapointed in that answer.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Fugly's blog? Not sure what that is.

I wish I could call the poor gal and tell her NOOOOOOOOO! :roll:

I got parelli's DVD and haven't watched it yet.... I will do that soon though, hopefully! I talked to the Dennis Reis People and I didn't get some ordinary employee, but Deborah Reis (Dennis's wife, like Linda Parelli) and she told me about it and told me to call her on her cell phone! I like the closeness of it and it really makes me feel like they want to help me and not rip me off.
