Actually, the horse WAS paying attention - they didn't release ANY pressure. Please read the earlier thread.

I want to smack Linda and that guy upside the head.

EDIT: I just watched more of it. Now I want to smack them REALLY HARD.
Stichy, toto and kmach like this.

I guess this is how you teach your horse the snake game? Was hoping to see a hoof upside the mans head on the other side of the rope, lol.

This clip is off of the level 1 DVDs that are sold as the homeschool pack, on teaching a horse the yo-yo game and putting it in a 'box' to teach it to stand still. I watched those videos a lot! I even got my level 1 from learning from it. Not so sure I'm a fan of it after going back and seeing the stuff they are 'training', now that I know a bit more.

There goes that dam*d big clip banging the horse under the jaw. My concern would be how much banging the bone will tolerate before cracking. When a horse looks away it's not about interest in what's going on over there but that it would rather be somewhere else. When standing in front of a horse, as that man was doing, all he had to do was look away in the opposite direction. That would have drawn the horse's attention back to him. The video disgusts me. I don't know if LP was in over her head or she succumbed to the pressure of being filmed but it should never have been released.

Agreed! Though it should have never been done in the first place. Had to agree (strongly) with a few of the other posters who requested a little firm correction for the humans.

If the freaking guy would have released the pressure AS SOON as the horse took a step back, the whole thing would have been so much smoother and the horse would know exactly what it was supposed to do. The release of pressure is the most important part and both Linda and the idiot with the rope missed that concept by a landslide. I couldn't even finish the video. Makes me angry. I really like Parelli and his methods and thankfully I have never seen anything else like this coming from him.

I wonder that as well. I wish the video of her doing similar things to an Arabian was around. The beginning of the video had her demonstrating how best to clunk your horse in the jaw with a metal clip (thankfully demonstrating with halters hung on a rail).

^^No no, you must have misunderstood, Parelli isn't about 'making' horses do stuff, only 'promising'...
