I watch as much of the free Parelli that I can find, along with the other NH stuff. In fact I watch as much horse training techniques as I can - but I pick and choose what makes common sense to me, and what works with my horse.
My current gelding responds really well to some NH techniques, my previous mare would have laughed in my face at it if she could, as she was the most stubborn, opinionated Alpha mare I have ever met. I wish I still had her, and the money to take her to PP I imagine she would have given him a very rough time.
