Kinda been waiting for this:
Actually, Spyder, you are wrong. Yes, I believe you CAN buy the colored savvy strings (but not sure....actually if they do sell them they don't list them on their website at all)....BUT for each level you pass you get the colored savvy string....for FREE....it is sent with your certificate to say "congrats you have passed level 1" (or whatever level)

After watching Parelli on RFD a few times I got sick of him. He talks a lot without saying much. I also watch Craig Cameron, Clinton, and Chris Cox.

In the end I decided that Chris Cox tells you a lot more than just how to do something. He tells you why and he does it in a way that clicks with me. Clinton's training clicks for me too. The Monty Roberts "join-up" was pretty awesome. I got "join - up" with a mare that wasn't progressing real well. That was awesome!!!!

It might just be different strokes for different strokes, but to me it is obviuos that Parellis have a plan to sell, sell, sell. I want training that works for me.

I was not impressed.

I think each of these said "Natural" horsemanship trainers can make some good points that could be used in a more useful training approach, but I think that the whole Natural Horsemanship gig is... well, just that. Gig. Scheme.

I really don't think they can say "Watch as I do this on my already trained demo horse and then you, an amateur, can go out and do it yourself simply by watchin my video!" Yeah, right.

You can watch videos all you want but if you want to do something real, get out there and work with a reputable trainer, because if you don't understand exactly how and why they are doing whatever is they are doing, you're pretty much just asking for a disaster.

In my opinion.

Good luck.

I don't know about the other NH trainers (Chris Cox, John Lyons or however his last name is spelt) but Parelli says that to get the training correct and to truely learn their methods that it is best to go through one of their Professional Trainers.

Everyone has good opinions. Different things work differently for different people. Parelli is good for me for various reasons like there are A LOT of people at my stable that use Parelli, including trainers. Natural Horsemanship can be taught different ways. Thanks for all the good wishes. :)

Yay

About the already trained demo horses. I've seen Linda work with horses that buck, rear and try and run you over! She's even fallen off one of the buckers and in the end the horse is far from perfect when she's done but they are 10x better then when she started!

I never would have done Parelli if it were not for my BO that does parelli and everyone else at my stables. I'm extremely lucky to be at a Parelli stables so I can ask anyone and they can help me. I feel that if I didn't have help with it I defiantely would have done alot of stuff wrong...and with Parelli if your horse gets bored and hates it, it's because you are doing it wrong.

Yeah NH can be taught different ways and some work better for your horse than others. I found that Down Under Horsemanship (Clinton Anderson) really only worked for dominant horses (pure dominent)...but if your horse has nervous tendencies it doesn't work (again normally...did not work for my horse because he has nervous tendencies).

The one reason why I liked Parelli is because they do take into account that not all horses will react the same to an object. And they use different approaches depending on how your horse reacts.

Goodluck with Parelli!!!! Do keep us informed on how you two are doing!!!!
