Is that not what I just said?
My problem is not with Parelli.
I just wonder why people think he is doing anything new or different.
Parelli is just a guy. A guy who makes mistakes contrary to what seems to be popular belief.
Natural Horsemanship, working with your horse as opposed to against, works with any horse NOT just Parelli.
I don't care if parelli works for every horse like you say it does. I want it to work for the person...because if the person can't properly communicate to the horse, it is useless.
Too many beginner horseman seem to do Parelli "wrong".
I agree with what CMT -- You can try and be nice and gentle and friendly to your horse as much as you want but if he's running you over, make him stop. A loud, firm noise, waving your hands in the air, and even an angry look will help.
You can be firm and still have a partnership with your horse.
