Lets not get off topic here, everyone. Sonny posted videos of her and her horse doing Parelli for those who are interested.
If you have a problem with someone's post, please contact the staff and we'll be glad to take care of it. Not reason to go off topic and say so and so was rude.

I really don't like getting into arguments and I probably shouldn't here but I just want to say that I don't think M2Gs comments were rude. From the way I took it she was more or less stating that they are things that many people do regularly and he just set it up in a different fashion and that you don't need to spend all kinds of money to do this.
Now, for people who are new-er to horses or want a little bit of guidance with these things and maybe to perfect them and possibly learn some new tricks and tips for it all it probably isn't a bad idea to get this stuff. If you have the money to spend on it and want it then go for it! You aren't harming anyone and really it is no ones business.

The problem with the internet farmpony is that it's hard to tell if someone is even saying "I love you" can be "hurtful". I did not take offence to yours (as I know you well enough to know that you were joking) as much as I did to M2Gs and I'm not mad or upset or anything it's just that at times I wish some of the anti-Parelli stuff was not spoken. Yes I know you don't agree with it, so I'm not forcing it on you or anything like that.

I'm sorry if I've upset you farmpony in any way. I do love reading your comments and you wanting my boy...honestly you are one of the ONLY adults that I know that actually likes my horse. I was yelled at and critisized by the last barn owner saying Sonny was a worthless horse that he was horrible and that I was stupid to buy him (she has said other things also, but I ain't gonna mention them)...and each time I'd run down to the lower pasture and cry. (Gosh I'm crying right now ....gosh aren't I emotinoal....stupid teen years, maybe I'll grow out of it :roll:)
I mainly posted these videos to show Appy and others the 7 Games and did not mean for the post to get like this.
Again, FP, my apologies

I have always followed her triumphs and her let downs any time I've seen a new post from her. And I've offered advice and encouragement. I've also praised her work. Not only did I post an apoligy here but I sent an apoligy PM for hurting her feelings. AND M2G's comments were not at all rude or nasty.

I will no longer respond or follow these posts.
Hey now, I wasn't trying to call either one of you nasty, nor saying that you don't respond favorably or kindly to other things she's posted. I was just simply stating that I didn't think she had asked for critique on her videos and it didn't seem like an appropriate response for the context.

I truly wasn't trying to start an argument or point fingers.

The way I look at it, is that this is a horseforum where people come to get advice on many different aspects of horses, sometimes for training.

My reasoning for posting my thoughts on Parelli methods stem from experiences other people that I know who have misinterperated the Parelli training methods and actually ended up with bad results.

Jenny has done an excellent job with Sonny and really puts a lot of work into him. I believe she actually understands the training methods and is not misinterperating them.

Because I respect her, I will no longer post responses regarding my thoughts on Parelli training methods unless she SPECIFICALLY asks for them.
