" I would be more likely to believe an article, than a review. JMHO though"

That's more what I was expecting as well....

I don't know anything about her training techniques but she's pretty neat to watch!

I wouldn't take an opinion piece such as a review as the truth about her training methods... I find it hard to believe that she can work in such harmony with her horses, performing similar movements/abilities as parelli himself could achieve those results without an effective relationship with her horses. There are many types of relationships, and she may simply seek a different type of relationship than parelli.

Sonny, I don't think it is a good idea to base your opinion on a review...There are PLENTY of bad things said about Parelli on the internet.. Even on this forum as you have seen but you are obviously having luck with him and don't believe any of it.

I love parelli and his way of teaching and training without forceful methods but I can't stand alot of people that practice parelli. One of the girls I used to board with would walk into the field with her whip, AKA carrot stick and start flicking it at the horses to get them to back up. That is NOT a parelli method. Poco charged the girl when she done this. It was rude and threatening to the horses. Yes, I use a lunge when it is appropriate but my horse is in no way shape or form the least bit afraid of it. I just hate the fack that people start parelli and turn it into there own form and start abusing his methods.

That is exactly what has happened to Parelli, his great fame was also his drawback, as every Tom, Dick and Harry that wanted to call themselves Parelli trainers have slandered his name so bad.... Same for them all, but not to the extent Parelli has. Their great marketing also became thier greatest drawback.

Different things work for different people and horses. Obviously not everyone agrees on Parelli and his methods. But in a general prespective he uses Natural Horsemanship. So does everyone else that has been brought up in this topic. Each person just has a different way of teaching it. No one has a "bad method" or is "wrong". Of course you shouldnt JUST rely on one way of teaching but that doesn't mean its bad, or that it doesnt work. Because it does work. We all have something in common in the fact that we want a stronger relationship with our horses. So instead of arguing over which method is better and who is wrong, why don't we talk about how each training method is different (compare and contrast) and how they are alike in a positive manner. Who knows? Maybe there would be a way to combine the training (not the popularity issue) together. In the end... let's just stop arguing and accept that we all believe in different things.

I appreciate all of the tips I have gotten on my start in Parelli. I will keep my progress updated :)

I think that's what a lot of people do. Parelli is good for understanding basic horsmanship. If you need to call it horseanalities or whatever term he decides to give it fine. Maybe then you move onto Monty Roberts to do join up and establish a herd between you and your horse. Then onto Clinton Anderson for riding.

I think that was what some people were trying to say. Parelli just markets the crap out of common sense. But everyone needs to understand how horses thing. So that's a good first step. However I really think you are boxing yourself in by just doing parelli, especially when it comes to riding. (I personally really like Kira Kirkland for riding).


Each individual trainer excells in one specific area. For Parelli I think it is giving a laymen explanation for equine behavior. There have been tons of boards about NH and their pros and cons. A lot of people on this board disagree with Parelli for various reasons. But I think almost everyone thinks it is a good idea to pull techniques and ideologies from different trainers so you can come up with the best training plan to fit you and your horse.

I got up to Level 3 parelli with my TB mare and I never had a carrot stick I just used a whip but never needed to smack her with it. I had a similar parelli halter but I never noticed a difference in the horse not using the "esactly right" products lol. Dartanion however just doesn't need parelli like my mare did so I'm out of parelli for the most part.
