Ya know guys, There is an old saying that goes " there is more than one way to skin a cat" I think we should all just post what we feel is the best way to handle the situation the OP was asking about and leave it at that. Parelli has its pros and cons as well as every other training method on the planet. I don't think it is necessary to hack apart the advice that we are giving to each other. Of course we can disagree, respectfully. Lets let others disagree with us. This Forum is a great place where we can SHARE ideas...lets not waste our time and efforts trying to win a debate. The OP can read through the suggestions and choose what works for them.
