Just a question. I got a young horse, she is three and unbroken, I am going to break her myself. I was wondering if people think it would be better to start her with Parelli type methods or more traditional but kind English methods.
My last horse I did not really start with Parelli, but she was much quieter than this one and I did not teach her things like lungeing until after she was broken. I did some basic Parelli with my old horse and he was better for it, but I never got that into it with my following ones.
With this one I am about to start to teach to lunge etc. Would I be better to teach her Parelli things like Lateral lunging and the yields or should I just continue with teaching her traditional lunging then side reins etc.
I don't feel I can do both because the principles of each differ too much, I feel I should only train her in one method at a time.
What are peoples opinions? I know Parelli can be helpful with older horses, teaching them to respond on the ground and such, but is it good for breaking in horses as well?
