I don't like that women. its not because shes a parelli, i have no problem with parelli. But theres some people that i just dont like orTRUST, and just by seeing her around horses and in videos and stuff she is not a person i would get along with, she seems almost 'sneaky' to me. That horse could have been handled better and she knows it, she just thinks to much of herself to admit she made a few mistake, which we ALL do, were only human. It just bugs me that she thinks to much of herself to kadmit she let her temper get the best of her. If she had admitted 'i have made a mistake, i am working on handling it better and fixing it'. then maybe i would have a teensy piece of respect for her.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

They can't even get their stories straight about the horse.

Of course, everyone wants to claim the horse was a "rescue" with a terrible past that they have "saved" him from. Typical Parelli PR nonsense.

I've watched the video (including the "prequel" where the owner was working with him) several times and have yet to see the horse exhibiting dangerous behavior.

What I did see was a crazy blonde woman lose her temper, whack a half-blind horse on both sides of the face with the rope. I saw Linda Parelli swinging the metal clip hard enough for that to whack the horse in the face, and heard her telling the owner that it was a "good whack" when he did the same. Eventually, her totally ineffective method of "training" led to her smacking the horse in the face with her hands.

And still, she stands by her actions. . .and still, her followers continue to guzzle the Kool-Aid, write the checks, and think that the P's are the best thing to ever happen to horses. . .:roll:

Yeah, that was "looking for excuses" video and comment. I think it would be much smarter of her just ignore the rumor and act like nothing happened. I had fun going through some comments though.... While generally PR is a good thing, I'm not very positive this type of PR will make people to buy Parelli's stuff.

I had no idea the horse was half blind till I read the blog thing. But know that.. makes what she did 100x worse IMO! Ive seen the whole video because I use to have th red level 1... In the end the horse WAS relaxed and such... but the poor thing probably went through a mental breakdown before getting there..

I was willing to go with Kevin (what he posted in the other thread) that the horse was dangerous, etc until I saw the video of the owner working with the horse prior to LP getting her paws on it.

This poor horse was not dangerous at all. At least not until LP touched it.

The owner had much better timing than LP had, that is for sure. He would shake the snot out of the rope and when the horse backed up he would stop and stand until the horse moved towards him again and he would start over.

I think that is how the exercise is supposed to work, right?
