[quote=LoveMyFinny;235587]Personally, I have not been impressed with a single parelli trained horse I have seen. All that I have seen are very disrespectful, have no idea about personal space, and just aren't pleasant to be around. Most of the people around here that do parelli are a bit off their rockers as well, quote]
i couldn't agree more! i would go so far as to tell you avoid just about anybody who has a television program (except for Chris Cox and maybe a couple of the lesser known trainers).
i won't go into the reasons i don't like the Parelli way cause i think there's a 10,000 word limit on this forum! lol if you like a traveling circus, go see him, if you want to go see something similar to the 1800's traveling tent revivals, go see the guys that have shows on on RFDTV (again, Chris Cox is very good, not like the rest of the RFDTV bunch) if you want to get serious about learning horses, do some research on REAL trainers and you'll discover practical and effective ways to train and you'll find ways that work best for you and your horse. If you want a "famous" person to start with...google Curt Pate, if you want an unknown, google Kevin Wescott. both of these men are "cowboys" who do train in the "natural" ways.
