Sheesh..... :roll: There's nothing wrong with a home study program. Good grief. It's like saying home schooling for kids is bad.
I love Parelli. It has taken me on the most amazing horsemanship journey, I wish everyone could/would get a taste of it. It goes so much
deeper than just the 7 games. That's just the foundation that Parelli is built on. But unless you truly dedicate yourself into understanding the program you will never, ever know what it's truly about. I don't care who you are lol.
Parelli is not a beat-around-the-bush program. Pat is a master horseman and he does not protect the horse's emotions.......he exposes them and uses what the horse offers and that's how he makes such rapid changes with horses. Clinton Anderson, IMO, is too aggressive and he over does it. The horses become unconfident. He seems to treat every horse the same, he's just so goal oriented that he doesn't care what the horse thinks about what's going on. It's just about getting the horse to do something NOW and FAST and to just get it done instead of putting the relationship first. The horse just then becomes a prop and in some cases a robot. JMO though.
