    So using a fiber glass stick is natural?

    Using it to make your body as long and as tall as the horse, to put you in a better position for more clear communication, yes, it's more natural.

    I LOVE CLINTON ANDERSON!!! I forgot who originally posted about him, but I think he's the best of all the "natural horsemanship" clincians. He's down to earth, funny, and really knows what he's doing. I don't mean to offend anyone, but I think a lot of Parelli is just smoke and mirrors. Clintons methods are straightforward and easy for both horse and riders to understand. He doesn't put up with anything but respect from his horses but at the same time is very kind and doesn't believe in using harsh or abusive methods to get what he wants. I've seen him at Equine Affaire a few times and his clinics were unbelievable. I was with a non-horsey friend, and even he was blown away by what Clinton managed to do with an ornery horse in an hour and a half. If anyone wants to know more, I highly suggest youtube. He has a series of tips under the channel "DUHorsemanship".John Lyons is awesome too.

    I've been in Parelli for YEARS and I can assure you it's not smoke and mirrors. What you see is what you get. Pat is a brilliant horseman, there is no denying it.

    I agree with the statement that I don't think that NH is for all people.....You really have to changed a lot of how you think especially if you are used to more traditional ways of horsemanship/training...
