Eric Bravo Natural Horsemanship

Horse Training Videos.

Anyone have any experience with Eric Bravos methods of Natural Horsemanship training? It seems a little easier to follow and not as involved as Parelli. Although they are basically the same program. Definitley cheaper than Parelli.

Is it really way cheaper. I'm not sure I agree since the cost of parelliconnect.com is very comparable. The program lists many of the same skills that you learn in Parelli but what does strike me is the quality of the production. The Parellis have spent a lot of money producing high quality video production and really well organized learning material. I wonder if Eric's is the same - you should buy and report back

Yes, I have Parelli connect. I have enjoyed the videos there. But you really get just a tease. The videos for level one are mostly around only 10 minutes long. Not really any riding instruction. I think its just to get you interested so you will buy the very expensive DVD program.

Oh I thought that for $25/month you got the whole level 1. Then you can buy the remaining disks for $100 each. There is also the success series which is only $50 each. I think Eric Bravo charges over $100 for his DVD.

$25 a month X 12 months, there are 4 levels. Levels 2-4, $120.00 a apiece (if your a savy member)= $660.00. Eric Bravos entire training program on DVD,$79.95. Dont get me wrong I love the Parelli program, but I think Erics program is a option we should look at. Just because his videos are not the quality of Parelli doesent mean his training should not be noticed.

OK wormy if you want to do the Eric Bravo then by all means but what you are saying about Parelli is completely wrong. Parelli connect is $25 and you can cancel in the first month. The DVDs are level 1/2 is $100, level 3 is $100 and level 4 is $100. So that is $300 not 660. Let's get the facts straight. I am not only talking about production quality but I am also talking about the program's educational quality i.e. the way the program is taught and whether or not it conveys the material so that the majority of people will understand. That is also really important. But as I said originally please go buy and report back.

Maybe you should check the prices again.Levels Pathway. Not a big deal. Im going to watch some of his videos. I think its good to absorb as much from as many trainers as possible. Ill let yall know about the quality.

OK so I did go and check the prices again. Level1/2 is one item not two. The price I quoted is if you're a member of the club which is pretty cheap and I think you can cancel at anytime. I rounded to $100 but anyway it is $120 * 3 = $360 buckaroos

I agree that learning from different sources is a good idea but if Eric Bravo is just teaching the same thing as Parelli then I don't really see the point. His website is nothing to look at either.

Just to point it out Eric's DVD set is $99.95. 17 lessons for $99.95 which is not very clear to me what that means and is therefore hard to compare to the Parelli levels program. But anyways....

I just watched the video clip of Eric teaching a horse to lead. I think the video is really bad quality and therefore it makes it hard to see. As you mentioned earlier this is no problem for you but this would be a huge problem for me. I have to be able to see clearly or I know that I wouldn't be learning all the things that I would want to. The next thing and potentially the more important criticism I have is that Eric is no where near as good as Pat or some of the Parelli professionals. No comparison. But it's always interesting to see what else is out there. I know I spent money on some DVDs from a guy in California which were cheap and what a mistake that was. I just ended throwing them away.
