SO I came here because google guided me to this site for comments on him, once I was here I could see many of the comments where not fair, AS FAR AS HIS HORSEMANSHIP GOES! His ego and manners are another story.
So even though he is an ass, I had to defend his horsemanship.
THAT IS ALL!
I have heard several top trainers say the same, NRHA, NCHA, included.
From what I have SEEN FIRST HAND many that bash Trainers can not do it themselves, so their comments are hard to listen to.
I do know from doing it myself it is a much different game when you try to fix problem horses others have messed up.
There is not a trainer out there that is being accused of some rough methods.
WATCHING PAT OR OTHER TRAINERS IS NOT THE SAME AS RIDING WITH THEM, FIXING PROBLEMS, EXTREME PROBLEMS IS DIFFERENT THEN FIXING.
I HELPED ONE WOMAN WHO WAS SO ANOYING ABOUT PARELLI I HAD TO LEAVE. SO I GET IT, THAT WAS FOR JUSTING ROLLING ROPE AT HER HORSE
THAT IS MY POINT
I hope you all enjoy your horses, GOOD LUCK
