    Naive people are drawn in by the glamour of the 3 ring circus with the picnic tables and cow-colored barrels. They don't have enough horsey common sense to realize that the $15 halter and lead from the local tack store are the same exact thing and they think that only PP equipment and PP methods can get them into that circus. I think it is kind-of a "monkey see, monkey do" type thing. I mean after all, PP founded this method and if he suddenly decides that whapping a horse in the face with a snap or tying a leg up while using a gumline twitch is okay, then he must be right..........right? :roll:

    And this is what is frightening to me. Someone must be able to make an independent thought for themselves, or they have no business owning a horse IMO. Just because they (or daddy) can afford the horse doesn't mean that they are not a complete idiot.

    As I said, I completely trust my instructor, and would trust my horses life to her - but if she did something that made me uneasy, I would ask her to stop and explain it to me.

    And that right there is probably why you don't follow Parelli, because you can think for yourself. Unfortunately, this world is chock full of lemmings.

    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.

    I think cow-colored barrels are VERY cool! I wish I would have one in ring as a decoration! But I only have those ugly white ones (I use to keep my halter and lead on while I ride)...

    Take the white barrel and get some of that black paint that if for plastic and paint a cow pattern on the barrel.

    I don't like Parelli... I no likey likey... BUT....

    I have to admit, there have been several instances where videos have been posted causing uproars, and then folks like Smrobs ro Kevin have come and said something like....

    "This is what they are TRYING to show us, this is what the horse is doing, this why it's a bad thing, this is what they are trying to do, this is how you fix this problem and this is why it needs to be fixed..." and then they've said... "This is how I would have done it....." and I've learned a ton.

    So in a way, I like the NH section and even the Parelli videos because the folks from THIS forum can break them apart and really explain the how's and the why's... It's a great way to learn.....

    That's a good idea.
