I could not have said it any better and agree 100%!

i will only comment to agree with appylovers post. its really good to learn from the different trainers and not base your training around one. not everything works for every horse and learning different ways from different people gives you a larger range of options to work with. i have modelled what i do with my horses around bits and pieces from many trainers incl. anderson, lyons, roberts and then theres what my dad taught me and what i have figured out myself through watching how they interact in a herd and also by using my common sense.

im not saying you shouldnt do parelli but keep an open mind and try to gather as much information as you can from all different places and build a program that works for you from there

good luck with it all :)

I am a big PonyBoy fan myself, a slightly different technique and WAYYY less expensive. I am also on his fan forum with any of my own questions, and have found a gold mine of helpful advice there.

I completely and wholeheartedly agree with learning more than one method. While mine leans heavily on Pony Boy and Ray Clements, I have studied the 'biggies' until I got the basic technique down. I now have my own modified version that works very well for me. Be open minded, and flexible, and if something doesn't work out it isn't the horse's fault, bear that in mind, it is up to you to adapt.

Good luck!!

Know thyself, know thy horse.

you can easily get a carrot stick for 18 bucks and the halter and rope hackamore for a LOT less as well. I dont want to get into Appys comment because she kinda knows what I think. You can just PM us if you need to know more :) But i have to agree dont stick with just one method but I mesh a few in my im at least 87% parelli.

I think if she wants to do this then dont try and change her mind let her find out herself and if it works for her horse.

On the Parelli items, you pay for quality...they are all extremely well made. That's one of the reasons they are so expensive. I've been through 2 off brand carrotsticks. The first one snapped in half (the actual stick), then the rope on the second one broke and the leather strap came off the stick. (not fun when I was riding with the string around his neck *shudders* lol he didn't do anything bad, just thought that he could be in control then )

But I do second (as I said before) the Halfcircleranch.com and ebay. You can get some good deals there

I'm 100% Parelli methods, I tried incorperating other methods in (I tried some CA, the join-up guy...can't remember his name...sorry way too early in the morning for me, and then some of Chris Cox). My horse did not like the mix, but other horses may.

It's great that you are excited about Parelli, I think as long as you go into this experience with your mind open you can really enjoy yourself... If you run into problems, go to friends or a trainer, or even this board and get some feedback...

Also, I dont know if you have the opportunity but you could go to a tack swap. Like I said, I am not into Parelli, but when I went to one last weekend I think I was the only one. There were plenty of DVDs and accessories so you may want to look into that

Yeah, that is a good idea, ask on these forums for anyone selling or would consider selling the set, even the stick thing and junk for a bargain. I borrowed the set of DVDs to learn, I learned his stuff that way, and returned them when I was done and it cost nothing.

I hear they have spiffy $50.00 colored savvy strings for the levels as well.

Anyone have some baler twine and paint?
