I noticed that back when I got my second horse Reba in 2006 i went to a parelli expo and have to admit it wasn't like it is today... Poor horse.

The video has been yanked off of YouTube due to copyright issues with the Parelli folks. It is much worse than the one with the little gray Arab. I was mildly supportive of LP for that one in that I felt that the careful and precise use of pressure, even a good slap with the leadline, is not out of line if necessary. But the totally confusing way that LP works with the bay horse is really disheartening. The horse is so confused, he doesn't know what to do to get this woman out of his face. And she is often so close to him that if he did get irritable about and try to strike out, she'd be toast.

Which video? Because the one posted on the last page still works.

The original one posted, with the gray horse.

Might not be long before the one I posted gets deleted, too.... if the Parelli's had to do with the original video's deletion.

Wow. She is an idiot IMO. She gives ONE good boy in the entire video, and the horse is trying. What happened to "reward the slightest effort", LP? If that was my horse and I was right there, she WOULD have had the rope used on her, guaranteed! And my horse would have been outta there before she could blink!

Personally, I am a little concerned.......I am moving my guy home in a month, and the only barn who does ANY western is 40 min away, and a Parelli barn.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Does anyone blame the owner of the horse? I realize it is LP doing it, but the owner has taken her horse there and is letting it happen. Are they so brainwashed and just have more money than sense?

I have a trainer that I love and trust, but if she were doing something that just felt wrong, I would ask her to stop until we at least talked about it and I was in agreement.

She seems like a newbie horse owner. For all she knows this is exactly how to handle the situation. This is exactly the crowd that the parellis seem to cater to which is what worries me. They are not yet to the point where they can judge what to follow and what not to -- They do whatever the trainer tells them to.

I can see that, but at the same time some common sense needs to come into it. I don't know much about pigs for example, but I can imagine having a problem with someone cattle prodding one all the time.
I would have thought that people seeking out NH are looking for a kind and gentle way of doing things and that repeatedly hitting a horse with the clip of a rope would make them just wonder a little.

Very true. I have no idea. I was trying to be well thought out, but in all reality, I think they're brainwashed...
