'Take the time it takes so it takes less time'. Would you rather your horse working as a partner of as prey? I ride Parelli and my horse trusts me a lot more than she did before. Parelli is based on a gorses natural insticnts. You don't have to do anything to do with NH, just as long as you and your horse are both happy! And for me, it's Parelli, for others it can be something else. But no matter what, I hate it when people expect results quickly with a horse.
