    You have to buy their DVDs and books if you want to know what they expect you to do. Not what THEY do, but what they expect YOU to do.

    It's pretty much a case of, 'don't do as I do, do as I say, and throw lots of money at us while you're doing it', with the Pepperonis.

    Pepperoni NH isn't anything more than common sense horsemanship tarted up with a lot of nonsense 'majikcal' explanations, expensive gear, 'games', smoke and mirrors, and heavy duty marketing.

    As money making marketers, they're geniuses. As horse trainers, not so much.

    And now, I will step out of this discussion and leave it to go the way of most Pepperoni threads.

    Read the "Am I missing something with Parelli?" thread you will learn A LOT. Not about Parelli though but almost every other topic under the sun, very informative. Be sure to read all 141 pages.

    Lol, why are you looking for popcorn?
    Is it because you find it amusing on what different people would say or that you are interested in peoples responces? Tad confused.

    They're looking for popcorn because every time a Parelli thread comes up, an argument almost always follows (or it seems that way). Parelli fans vs non-Parelli fans. Quite a few people get a kick out of these arguments because in truth they are quite amusing.

    Are you less confused now?

    This. Parelli tries to fluff up horsemanship and say that it is an equal partnership between horse and rider. While yes, it is a partnership, it is by no means equal. I decide when we will ride and where, I decide whether we will work circles, ride trails, or work cattle that day. At no point does my horse get to tell me, "No, I don't think I want to do that" like an equal partner can. My horses are my friends, sure, and I trust them but first and foremost, they are my subordinate and my orders are non-refutable. That's not what the Parelli's teach. They teach that you must ask a horse if he will allow you to ride or allow you to canter or allow this or that.

    They seem to have forgotten that owning horses isn't a democracy, it's a dictatorship. If it was a democracy, I wonder how many of their horses would vote them off the island with matching hoofprints on the behinds.
