    Im sorry, but what do you expect, of course he's going to try to promote his dvds & stuff. Demos are so you see a bit of his training to get you interested, but not enough that he's teaching you how to train your horse for free, how would he ever make money that way ? Just because you don't care about his tie ring doesnt mean other people don't want to hear about it. No one is forcing you to stay or anything, if you don't like it then leave.

    Sorry if that sounds like a rant, but really what do you expect. If you want to see more techniques you have to go to a clinic not a demo. I have never gone to one of his demos for that reason, I like his methods but I already know what they are, I don't need to be convinced & hear about his dvds

    So I shouldn't waste my time or money when he comes to PA this summer , I was thinking about going too : /

    On another note Spirithorse:**There was a Parelli clinic this weekend just about 30 min from where I live , I so wanted to go at least to audit but my Paint got hurt (eye injury) so I was at the barn with the vet. Maybe next time ? My boys' well being was more important at this point!

    Actually the Blocker tie ring that he is promoting actually worked well for my Mustang .....I didnt buy it from him though, it was suggested by someone else and I found it in a local tack store.

    I wouldnt say totally rule it out, it just depends on what you want to get out of it. Don't expect him to not say anything about his products, because selling them is part of how he makes his living. If you can live through that part & want to learn a thing or two about his techniques go for it.

    ^ I totally agree, I actually saw him before .... IMO he does have some good points but I agree that he talks about a lot of horse owners as being "stupid" (yes , there are some stupid horse owners) but the only way to solve being stupid is to be educated. If he wants to really help horse owners or riders to become more educated he shouldn't be degrading them.

    Of course he is going to promote his products. That's not what I'm getting at. I'm simply curious as to why he would spend more time promoting his products than promoting his training methods by doing a live demo.

    From what was said, I think he did a lot with one horse & less with another. Hard to say as we werent there though. Also people tend to focus on the negative so again we really have no idea how long anything took place as we didnt see it with our own two eyes [or 4 eyes in my case...]

    Right, because I have a great reason to lie! I was not the only one displeased with him at this expo - the woman who ran it called him up after wards, and told him to take a vacation because the people didn't like him and neither did the horses.

    I know another woman locally who shows in reining, and she's been at competitions competing against him, and people have wished him luck and he's just completely snobbed them.

    I wouldn't walk across the street to see that man again - especially after he said english riders were pissy people - while KAREN O'CONNOR was watching him.

    I never said you lied.....

    All I said was none of us saw what happened so we can't ever know the whole big picture of it, we just know what you say/ your take.

    Not to change the subject but has anyone watched Cris Cox? He's another one who I get his methods but if I was ever participating in one of his clinics, I'd be in tears most of the time. He definitely needs to work on his people skills.
    I'm one of those people that crys if someone yells at them
