Oh and Kevin, you should have seen my horse when I first got him. He was stiff as a board, short strided, wouldn't come over his back and couldn't pick up a correct lead to save his life. Plus his teeth were very out of balance and had been overfloated. However I feel no need to justify myself to you, or anyone else.
Can I tell you a secret? Its not parellis way, he never came up with ANYTHING, other then the prices. He has turned NH into a compelete circus. Parelli just finds something and advertises it saying he made it and its his...then he mixes it up and turns it into levels, and turns it into a weird program, so that the fact or technique he found ends up so twisted everyone thinks he is a genuis.
There were people doing NH with their horses wayyyyyy before parelli, he's no genuis, he's just a good advertiser.
I don't hate him, im just tired of people being in such aw at him. He hasnt actually done anything special, theres hundreds of other trainers that do the same thing as him, they just arent as famous and they don't turn it into a show.
