Farmpony, you have taken my posts out of context. I am not angry or frustrated that some people don't use Parelli. There would be no point in getting angry or frustrated. As I have said before, this program does not work for every person. It isn't for everyone. I've said this many times.

And nowhere did I say someone was better than someone else. I did not say that I am better than someone who uses a trainer. Please do not think that was what I was implying.

Thank you JDI for keeping to topic at the end of your post, and for helping me. I will keep what you said in mind (that is kind of what I wanted to do, to combine certain things from a lot of different trainers). So, Thank you.

John Lyons methods have taught me patience and understanding, and I'm a much better horseman for it. I like some of Clinton Anderson's methods, although I don't know how I feel about him personally. I'm also very impressed with Craig Cameron and Chris Cox.
I used to think that "natural horsemanship" (and I don't really like to call it that because there's a stigma attached to it) was silly and not worth my time. I was bound and determined to stick to my more traditional training style. But when I actually took the time to educate myself about the horsemanship revolution, I realized that my previous opinions were unfounded and somewhat ignorant. Don't get me wrong--there are some trainers I like more than others. I don't get into the whole "cult" mentality that seems to happen sometimes with one or two of the trainers. I've been able to take ideas from multiple programs and have them work for me.
My goal is to be the best horseman I can be and to have a truly respectful, well-behaved horse, usable horse. When I say "usable" I'm not referring to arena riding--the facility I'm at doesn't even have one, although I wish it did for the cold Wisconsin winters! I'm talking about pulling logs, crossing rivers and creeks, hours of trails, going through deadfall, road riding, parades, mounted shooting, etc...
Learning from trainers such as John Lyons, Craig Cameron, Clinton Anderson, and Chris Cox has brought me much closer to my goals than I ever thought possible.
