Exactly! They all speak horse - they just have different approaches to it. My old Coach used to always say "Speaking horse is speaking horse"

They all have their own "paths" to reach the ultimate goal - you can learn good from all, and learn bad from all.

Take the good from each indavidual, and stick with what works best for you and your horse.

I have seen both CA and PP act like jerks. It happens with most folks at some point in time. Take the best from both but avoid drinking the cool aid from either. As a lot of folks have said, find someone local to work with you and your horse. It is really difficult only having DVD's and TV shows. We now have a PP trainer close enough to come to our barn. And by the way, she did not drink the cool aid either. If a trainer is good the trainer will understand you and your horse very quickly. The trainer can then tailor a program just for you. This is what makes a local trainer so valuable. My horse is a left brain introvert and my wifes horse is a right brain extrovert. When I heard about this horseanality thing I thought it was the biggest bunch of hog wash I had ever heard of. It has actually helped me more than anything else. Understanding your horse and what motivates it is invaluable. Even if you rather go the CA way I would suggest taking a look at figuring out your horses personality ( I refuse to use that other work again) and what motivates each type of horse. It has made a world of difference for us.

I think CA and PP want whats best for you and your horse so I really do not understand why there is such strong feelings on the subject. They have both sold themselves to the corporations and the big bucks. There is a lot of baggage that goes with doing so.

One more thought, do not hesitate to change trainers if the one you find is not working out. There are really a lot of very good local trainers if you just look for them. The ones you see on TV are not the only ones.

I was appalled at Linda Parrelli hitting the horse in the face with her hand! I couldn't believe she would do something like that. That poor horse was so confuse and clueless. He had no idea what she was asking. I had no idea what she was asking. I agree, that if I were the owner, I'd have flattened LP on her kiester. What was she thinking?

Lacyloo you hit the nail on the head! Both trainers can get the job done but in my opinion and experience you should not rely on just one trainer's techniques. You should learn something from every horse person you meat. Weather good or bad take in everything. You can ALWAYS Learn something new. What works for one horse won't always work for another and if you have a lot of tricks in your bag then you can always get the job done. Anouther thing you have to remember is that clinicans are always in it for the money. No matter what they say if you have to pay to get this special rope and that special halter they are getting your money in return. Perrelli's carrot sticks are just golf club handles cut down painted orange and a soft tip and rope attached to the end, you can make it at home yourself. I have nothing against either man and have limited knowledge in both men's tecnieques I just think it is best to get your training knowledge from all over and not to put all your eggs in one basket... especially ones that cost a bundle.

I saw a video once where LP and PP where invited to ride with people on other disciplines like dressage in a clinic with a great European trainer who's point was, in this clinic, that it doesn't matter what discipline you ride in you ride the same. I was so disappointed in LP she was stiff, had horrible riding position, you could tell the horse was agitated with her and she refused to take instruction. You could tell that every time the clinician asked her to do something different she got more angry at being told to do something. I will openly admit to being annoyed by her.
