Well sure I agree -no one wants to have to re-invent the wheel. I think NH has shot itself in the foot though with all that marketing...I watch some of the video's of Parelli students and I will be the first to admit, some of it is just beautiful...there is one that is 13 years old and what he can do with a horse is just amazing. I will share it with you guys. BUT I bet this boy has been in that arena for hours and hours and hours of his little short life.

Now lets say a novice watches that and goes out swinging the whip around the rear end of the wrong horse, well they could find themselves flying backwards from a kick...or you get on the wrong horse without a bridle and sure your lunch will probably be a dirt sandwich...it takes time to evolve a relationship to that level.

Cute video, thanks for posting!

I noticed though (and I find it to be a case for many Parelli-trained horses) that horse looks bored with what he's doing. And if he's trained several hours day same stuff over and over I'm not very surprised then.

Absolutely. But I must also add you don't need to practice Parelli or John Lyons to achieve it (which I strongly suspect is the idea behind the video).

I think that you kinda pick and choose different techniques but everyone has their own personal style when it comes to horses. It is the same as everything else, you have to find what fits, and then develop it. Make it your own, and do what feels natural. I like Endo Spinks way of doing things...he has his own way of doing things.

The term is "learned helplessness".

Lol! That's a good one. I'd call it "passive obedience".
