No no no, not at all. Sorry if that's the way it came across. I do know that other trainers, like Denis Reis, have the horse's best interest in mind. I love Denis, I think he's great.....a little boring and monotone, but a fantastic horseman. He's not for me, but I have a ton of respect for him.
Let me see if I can say this next part right.....for me personally, I feel Parelli has the best deal for the horse, otherwise I wouldn't be following it, however that doesn't mean I look down on people who don't follow Parelli. I only look down on people who don't care about the horse and treat them like robots, the people who really don't love the horse, they are just using them to fulfill some personal need for feeling powerful, in control of another being or just wanting to WIN....at any cost. Does that make sense?
