Just wondering why........

I just want to know from all you people out there who seem to go out of their way to read every Parelli thread even though they don't like Parelli and bash it down into the ground every time there is a Parelli thead. We are people just like you and we are doing something we love with our horses and my horses seem to love it so why do we get bashed for trying to share the thing we love doing with others who also love doing it?

I have never seen a thread that spirithorse has posted that has not really had a bashing on it and I have to stand here and wonder why? Why do you guys have to comment on it when you don't even like it? Why do you have to put us down all the time? Do you get kicks out of it? Does it make your day to put someone down? No offence but it is a form of online bullying I myself don't take it to heart and I just carry on with what I'm doing but there are other more sensitive people out there why put them down? What's in it for you? They aren't going to change their opinions and neither are you so why try to fight us? I just don't get it.

I know many people on the forum who don't agree with Parelli who are my friends but they let people do what they want with their horses and stay out of it because they don't agree with it but they know there will be no change in opinion on either side they know there is no point so why can't the some of you on the forum who try to get on Parelli people's nerves get that there is no point?

Because some of us have been around a long long time and we know it doesn't work. It is for the medicore people trying to be trainers. I have never seen a well made horse using Parelli. And I have been around alot of boarding barns over the decades.

It is like someone complaining they get a head ache from banging their head against a wall. Tell them to stop and the pain will go away.
We are just trying to tell you to stop banging your head.

As for Spirithorse?? I keep thinking back to the post on the vet approaching her horse without following her instructions on how to approach a horse. Sort of ask permission before to are allowed to touch me?? Trick training is also a part of it. She is part of the wall we are trying to get you away from.

People that get ahead, make exceptional horses don't use Parelli.

Parelli is only a marketing ploy.

I don't post in very many Parelli threads, but I do read alot of them. I'd compare it to watching an accident taking place... it's horrible to see, but you can't look away... and you want to shout out help to make it stop... and then gawking at the aftermath of the destruction.

The Horse Forum Team has actually been discussing what to do about the fact that it seems members can't discuss Parelli in peace. On the one hand we want members to be able to discuss their interests without being... let's say harassed for lack of a better word at the moment... by others, and on the other hand we understand the concern of experienced members who have seen what embracing Parelli and turning a blind eye to other training methodologies can lead to.

That may be the case, but it also may be something members need to discover for themselves. It may also be the case that certain members are more interested in Parelli than they are in exceptional horses. I'm not necessarily saying the two are mutually exclusive.

What does everyone think of adding a designated Parelli sub forum where members who have chosen Parelli can discuss Parelli without interjection from others? To address concerns you and others would likely have with such a scenario, RiosDad, there is a lot of information in many different areas here. If somebody were to choose to ignore everything else here in favor of only what they find in a Parelli sub forum, your posts would likely not dissuade that person anyway.

People do use Parelli. People do enjoy Parelli. It may not be considered the best, the safest, or the smartest training methodology by everyone, but what does everyone think about allowing those that have chosen it a place to discuss it? As a compromise, what if there were only one sticky in the Parelli sub forum and it was a detailed thread warning members who visit the Parelli sub forum of the alleged downsides of using Parelli? Would those of you who are opposed to Parelli and post in Parelli threads consider that a fair compromise which would convey your message to everyone interested in Parelli without requiring you to interject in Parelli related threads? That would allow you to convey your message and allow members still interested in Parelli to discuss it.

I don't know if that will bring peace to the Middle East, but it would certainly help here. What does everyone think of the above?

Thanks,
Mike

Honestly, I doubt it would help.

You made a Western Pleasure sub-forum thingy and 2/3 threads in there are complaining about western pleasure.

Thank you for telling me your opinion on the rest as for these two comments I feel I need to comment on for the first one people like David and Karen O'conner are using Parelli Robert Whitaker is using Parelli Walter Zettl is using it how are these people not people that are ahead?

I agree to some extent on the marketing it is very much over priced but it is not Pat controlling that Pat and Linda don't actually own the majority of the company I forget hgis name that does but he is the one that is controlling the prices.

Mike, a notice like that might actually help those who are looking for training ideas to realize that Parelli isn't the end-all be-all, one-size-fits-all majickal training method that it's touted to be.

Unfortunately, since the people who are brainwashed by the Mustachioed One and his wife don't see that their gods have feet of clay, they're constantly trying to lure others into the cult.

I try to stay out of the Parelli threads because they always turn into trainwrecks, and they devolve into nothing more than name calling.

The Parellis neither invented nor perfected 'natural horsemanship'. All they did was perfect a massive marketing scheme to bilk their devoted followers out of money. As marketing geniuses, I applaud them. As horse trainers, I wouldn't let them anywhere near my animals.

I've actually come to despise the term 'natural horsemanship', because of its association with the Parellis and their ilk.

Would it help if there were a Parelli forum similar to the Saloon that you must be granted permission to be able to access? If we don't have access, we won't see threads on the New Post list, correct? Outta sight outta mind for the rest of us...

Have you ever watched the DOG WHISPER?? If you know what you are looking for you will see it.. Watch the sun when he is working a dog?? Watch the sun tell how time passes? Watch how the dog suddenly reacts, over a commercial you will see a totally different behaving dog.
The dog was taken out behind the barn so to speak and given a lesson you don't see on TV
What you see as the finished product isn't always the method you see being diplayed.
