Horses have long bodies, people have tall bodies. To communicate effectively, we need to be able to be as tall and as long as the horse at any given moment, which is why we use the carrot stick.

The Parelli saddle does NOT claim to improve CONFORMATION. Conformation is skeletal and can not be changed. However, the saddle will help the horse's POSTURE. Conformation and posture are two completely different things. The saddle is legit as far as I'm concerned, I've had the priviledge to ride in it and my horse moved so much freer and it really improved everything overall. But lets not get into a debate about the saddle, shall we?

We're not allowed to ask questions? And I'm not allowed to get opinions and views from EVERYONE, including non-NHers? You'd think you would be excited to have someone asking questions in "your" part of the forum so that maybe someone would be more open to your methods.

But the attitudes expressed toward those who are not obviously NH followers just drives more and more potential NHers away. Good job.

I'm on the fence. Metaphorically, I DID have one leg on each side of said fence, but lately, with the rudeness expressed toward "non-NHers" I'm leaning more away from that particular method.

Wow, and here I thought this was an open and welcoming forum. Sad to see this kind of attitude expressed on my second day here.

For the record, I actually embrace a lot of the NH techniques and ways of thinking and I still find what you said to be very rude. Ironic that you are directing it at non-NHers, and yet you make even those who do embrace NH feel uncomfortable/unwelcome in "your" forum (that is how you make it seem)

I have not problem discussing the theories and ideas of such behaviorist and fine horseman as
Tom and Bill Dorrance,Mark Rashid,Jack Brainard,Ray Hunt,Dr. Robert Miller,Leslie Desmond,Gawani Pony Boy,Curt Pate,Stacy Westfall and many,many others that have contributed so much.

The above names deserve a great deal of respect for what they have accomplished in the horse world and poking fun at carrot sticks and saying that they cost too much is not the best opening to the topic.

In my humble opinion.

You're accusing me of poking fun at carrot sticks now? Because I asked a question? Since I am the one who opened the topic, I take that to be your meaning.

Please exit the thread already. You are just picking fights left and right, and I'm tired of it.

So, asking questions in an attempt to learn about something you don't understand = bad, gotcha.

I did not mean that you the OP was attacking.
I did mean that others are!

The word "Natural" seems to bring out the reaction from many.
