    I think in certain situations Parelli can be a God send. For me its too much "beating around the bush" as stated above. I guess I'm a little to no nonsense, just get on the horse about it. Plus I'm a penny pincher

    I brought a parelli dvd when I brought my horse as he had had very little handling so really needed to learn to trust each other, I had also never trained a horse before buying him. The parelli was good and I still use some of the techniques and others I have altered to suit us. You don't really need to buy all the tack or even the dvds if you google it you can get directions and even video clips on the net.
    If it is a respect and bonding that you want to work on have you heard of monty roberts? He does join up. And when done properly it is amazing. When I brought tommy I couldnt get near him to touch him let alone catch him but through doing joinup in the paddock (which is alot better than doing it in a round yard) he learned to trust me and I could then move on to doing parelli games.
    Join up really is basically advance and retreat in detail and teaches you how to mimmic a horses behaviour and how to read their very minimal signs such as licking chewing and watching their ears. Anyway it is really worth giving it a go, there is nothing more beautiful than a horse asking to join up with you and it wanting to be with you. It will also teach them though that you are head horse and to respect your space (as while you are learning their language they learn yours if you know what I mean)

    If you are going to try Parelli, I would urge you to buy the Level 1 pack. Trying to do it from directions of a video clip with NOT help you. Then you run the risk of saying "I tried Parelli and it didn't work." Plus those won't give you the Why' in why you are doing what you are doing.

    Not all rope halters are created equal. You can buy a cheap one, but really it will be a piece of poo. Cheap ones, unless made from the exact stuff Parelli makes theirs from, will not have the feel that the Parelli ones do. Same goes for the lead ropes.

    It may seem expensive, but when you get right down to it it costs no more than sending a horse to a trainer, buying more equipment, taking lessons, etc. The amount of information you get in the packs is huge. It's worth the investment.

    Parelli doesn't work for everyone and every horse.

    Well I agree it doesn't work for every person.....

    When I first got my lvl 1 I decided not to get the rope halter, lead, or carrot stick, but as soon as I watched the first part, I stopped it and ordered those. I have found that they are really useful, and yes they are expensive, but what part of owning a horse isn't?

    Hmph. You would be suprized.

    I recently bought myself a carrot stick. And really, I could make the same thing at home. Yes it wont be made with "parelli" type stuff but in the end it does the same thing. A $10 rope halter can do the same thing a $40 dollar rope halter from Parelli it may not be made from the same stuff, but it still serves the same purpose. Yes buying things that are expensive are part of owning a horse. But that doesn't mean you need to go out a buy a $40 rope halter when you can get a off-brand halter for $10. Yes its not Parelli yes its not "as good quality". But with a $10 rope halter I would be less worried about getting dirty and such. I just think its a pure waste of money. Just like Twinkle. You can get the same effect of Twinkle from Hairgel and Glitter. But yet you spend $40 on a little tube of Twinkle. Its pointless and its a waste. Your buying a label.

    That's just my view of it. I know im not going to presude the hard core "Parelli Followers" but that's just my view.
