Personally, I don't like Stacy Westfall. I've read and heard some pretty nasty stuff about her and I'd never support her in any way.
The reason why I do love Parelli so much is that there is nothing "shady". He's out in the open about everything and haven't ever heard any horror stories about him even with people who hate him.
| I actually just got in to parelli at the end of the summer, & actually bought the Success Series on ebay (love ebay!). What I love most about Parelli is the whole 'psycological aproach' when it comes to training. I really like the ideas for the human/horse relationship and bonding, and understanding how your horse sees you in terms of how they think based on your interaction with it. |
Yes I do love that about Parelli too! As do I love how they recognize that not all horses will react the same or have one horsenality.
