mylucalove, I honestly don't think you've ever tried Parelli. Not trying to start anything with you, but until you have put SERIOUS effort into it, you can't bash it. The whole "dog" comment was evident to the lack of knowledge.

Pat was able to climb onto a wild mustang's back in 45 minutes WITHOUT touching her. We have it on video So Pat is able to build a strong bond as well.

aaahhh, the old battle over which natural horseman is the best hehehe i think it comes down to which one works best for each person and their horse. mylucalove - they all do the same thing just with slightly different techniques. turning a horse into a dog as you say isnt necessarily a bad thing. most dogs are much safer to be around than a nutty horse who has issues

im really glad everything seems to be going better for you and your horse. keep it up and im sure you'll be going great guns in no time :) you sound like even though you are timid in some regards, you are tough when you need to be and this might see you through these troubles :)

while we are on the natural horseman thing, you could even try frank bell. he is also a wonderful horseman with some brilliant, effective methods

Sorry to offend parelli fans....i went to a barn one time that claimed to be parelli experts but i don't think they got it. The horses were down right aggressive and mean. Yet the barn hands would brag about that horse being on a level two or three. My only thing is why pay $300-$400 for level such and such vidieo set when another man with a similar style is willing to teach you everything (all 23 vidieos) for $120. Its just my first hand impression of parelli was horrible. Don't get me wrong, done correctly I'm sure it works great. They just seem to over market there videos and such. Just looks like they lost focus from helping people to helping people and making lots of money.

Please don't think i intend to offend everyone. Just wanted people to know that there are other things out there.

Funnygal I'm really glad that everything worked out for you. It seemed you handled everything great. Keep up the good work!

Don't forget to laugh.

eh im not offended lol im a frank bell and clinton anderson girl myself :) its just a common argument over who is best and i just felt the need to say that everyone finds the different ones helpful in some way. ive never seen one parelli video for $400 but i guess its possible ??

i do tend to agree that parelli seems very expensive but i guess some people are desperate enough for answers that cost isnt reallt an issue. i know i couldnt put a price on dealing with my cranky wb when i first got him. i do think the 7 games are priceless though :)

whichever way, i dont believe there is much argument between them all. the only real thing is price as they all do the same thing in theory just the practice is different :)

I'm not "desperate" for answers and I choose Parelli..... Someone doesn't have to be "desperate" to do Parelli.
