If you feel like you have to watch someone "famous" (on RFDtv) then you should watch Chris Cox, if you want to learn from someone a little lesser known but even better, look up Curt Pate, if you want to learn from someone completely unknown, but possibly better than all of them, look up Kevin Wescott.
Don't get me wrong, I think a person can learn from nearly every trainer - even if it's learning what NOT to do...but if you were going to try to mimic one trainer, he isn't the one, and for your own sake IGNORE ALL the Parelli stuff!!
Ok...i'm ready for the rotten tomatoes and beer bottles to be thrown...just please don't start your argument with "i don't care what he looks like..." it's a dead give-away!! Lol
Everyone has their own opinions. I prefer Clinton to Chris Cox but I like them both. I think Clinton is just really easy to follow and his methods really do work. Like they said like kids could do his techniques. I'm sure the people really into Parelli hate him because he is too rough or something!
Is that Curt guy the one that did the AQHA video? I never heard of the other guy?
I take bits and pieces from just about everyone and make some of my own techniques as well. Whatever works for you.
