Not that it is my intention to defend Lina Parelli because I really can't stand Parelli, but I have a horse that is blind in one eye and she still given me "two eyes". By this I mean she pays attenion and looks straight on at me. Of course this might have to do with the fact that she didn't loose vision until she was already well advanced in her training.

Your mare's training probably has made all the difference, she knows what you want. The video horse wasn't sure.

Thanks for asking

YouTube - Lambo's walk

Those are really the only two trainers that I like, the other ones seem like they are just putting on and are trying to sell something more that they are trying to give a clinic. I would rather have a clinician/trainer who does try and sell you his product but can back it up and you actually learn something from!

AMEN! Love Clinton - we went to his Walkabout tour when he was in Madison, WI this past Fall.. and not only he is a good horseman, but also good people person.. he is genuine and FUNNY as hell.. his tour was not only educational but very entertaining.. had not laughed this hard in a looong time.
I also like Chris Cox..

Parelli has worked really well for my horse, but I haven't bought any of the videos of the Parelli program. It's more of my trainer's interpretation of Parelli's work that has been working very well. It really depends on how you interpret it I guess. I have two left brained horses. One is an extrovert, he has gone really well with Parelli with pretty much minimal former training. Then the other is an introvert who has been trained in a completely different program, then I've been trying to correct her a bit with Parelli and it hasn't been working a bit. She's really stubborn anyway, and isn't farmilliar with the program.

I don't really have much of an opinion on either of them, but I've worked with a Parelli-type program.

The reason that Clinton Anderson doesn't get mad: "Frustration begins where knowledge ends." - I believe that was by Clinton himself.

I'm not too familiar with Parelli, but what I have seen is confusing compared to Clinton. Clinton makes it simple to understand and use. I like to use things from Clinton. Like others have said about using info from several trainers, just remember that the way you train your horse may work on several horses but not always. You need to be able to adapt when it doesn't work, which something from another trainer would.

Someone posted earlier that they saw Clinton make the horse go round and round. Maybe while he was explaining something to the crowd, but his training is to only go around a few times or the horse loses focus on you. Yes, I have seen him have his horse Mindy (she is so awesome!) go around him several times during a clinic. This was not to train her but to show her off to the crowd with what his training can do. She was going around him without him cueing her or any halter or lead rope.

As for the issue with rope halters vs nylon halters, rope halters will get a better response from the horse. Some people say that a rope halter will give the horse rope burn across the pole and/or nose. With a nylon halter, the pressure on the horse is disspursed over a greater area, so they really could pull all day without bothering them. If you use a rope halter, the thinner the rope, the more response you will get. Also, tie the halter RIGHT! To tie a rope halter, tie the knot BELOW the loop. If you tie it above and the horse pulls back, you will have a hard time getting the knot undone. If you tie it below, all you have to do is move the loop up and the knot becomes loose.

Not to scare you but if Lambo goes missing I had nothing to do with it :)
