We got the respect on the ground CA DVD used on E-bay. Can't imagine paying full price. We have practiced the beginning stuff alot! When we have needed it with my daughter's young horse it has worked like a charm. For example one time he was getting himself all wound up, when he was having to stand and some other horses were working cows and my daughter flexed him for a minute the way we taught him from the video and he let out a big sigh and pretty much forgot to be worked up and half went to sleep. We originally got the DVD's from the library. Had to put a hold on them a wait a month but got to see if we liked them at no expense.

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.
yes, Curt Pate did an AQHA video I believe. I think he may have done a series of articles in their magazine also (he may still, I haven't read it for awhile, my wife runs of with it and I never have a chance to see it! )

Kevin Wescott is a trainer from Nebraska who learned NH from Tom Dorrance (the REAL father of natural horsemanship - sorry, whoever said Parelli is). Kevin is a real unknown because he's never searched out the spotlight, he's seemed very content doing some small clinics here and there and helping out his friends and their friends. He has enough "cowboy" in him that he isn't too soft, but again, he has an incredible understanding of the "natural" methods.

I agree circleck, there are better teachers out there but then there are better teachers then those teachers as well. Does that make sense?
I don't think anyone expects perfection in a trainer, just someone who they feel comfortable with, can easily understand and can fix their particular problem.
I heard someplace that Pat Parelli worked with Tom Dorrance in his early years by the way. I'm not a Parelli fan just thought I would point that out We all have to start someplace.

Mark Weiler, who owns 51% of the Parelli company, is to blame for the prices. He's a jerk who doesn't have horses and he is all about money. It's not Pat and Linda. Mark's done a good job getting the word out about Parelli, but with everything else, I think he will drive a lot of people away. I just tell people to look past all that crap and look at Pat's horsemanship skills. There is no denying the man is amazing, and those who argue that must be blind.
Actually PP was NOT the first. He just had the right agent to get him out there.

No CA did not study under PP.

I never said Pat was THE FIRST. The term "natural horsemanship" never really took off until Pat started using it. And yes, he did study with Tom Dorrance, he was one of Pat's greatest mentors and he gives credit to him all the time.

And yes mls, Clinton did study under Pat, he was a Level 3 student before he went out on his own ;)

Of course he won't say he studied with Pat, he's one of his "competitors" in the training world. We have a friend who personally knows Pat and Linda (darn them! Lol) and she asked once about Clinton and Pat told her that he used to be a student of the program. When I was participating in a clinic once one of the ladies in the class asked the instructor about Clinton (she had previously been studying his program) and the instructor told her the same thing. This instructor has been with Parelli since the beginning of the instructor program when it came out in the 90's.

The Parelli studying under Dorrance angle is WAY overblown, it is NOT what PP makes it out to be - I'm a nobody in the horse world and I'm not pretending that I'm important or know "the right people", but I've heard from people who I believe know this as a fact, it's just another marketing trick of the traveling tent revival PP puts on.

I went to one of his clinics in October and it was sooo cool!
I worked with my horse the next day and she was already acting better!
It was amazing!
(I even got my picture taken with him, he touched my arm! SQUEE)
(UGH! Bad picture of me)
