With everything comes extremes. Like extremely loving parelli or extremely hating parelli, which you'll get a lot of here haha. Me, I like the idea of his training, but think that if he was really there to help horses/owners, he wouldnt charge money for everything.

On a side note, I LOVE your horses mohawk hunter65 :) haha

The main reason people are not a fan of Parelli is his ego is bigger than his ability and he sells his system as the end all and be all of training for every single horse and every single situation. Add in a dash of 'it is my way or you are cruel' that seems to be the motto of the Parelli groupies and that pretty much sums it up.

They market to the clueless crowd and convince them to fork over tons of money for useless expensive stuff and give them nothing in the way of an improved horse for it. They also convince the clueless green owner that they, themselves, with no help from anyone else, can train that wild mustsang they adopted for $200 just by using their video tapes.

What she said!!!

Haha.
I suppose you can love it,
Or hate it.
Personally I think that there is better horseman ship tecnic's out there. Which are cheaper, I.e FREE, and are easyer to do.
I wouldnt buy the dvd's. I think that that is a bit of a scam

I think all natural horsemanship is aimed at having a great EQUAL partnership with your horse, and your horse doing whatever you want it to because it wants to do it for you....but I think in most cases this is just a fantasy because most horses really want a leader, boss, superior entity to make them feel safe and secure and to know what the rules are. What you get out of it really depends on you, how you implement the techniques, and it's up to your horse. Some people get great results and end up with a nice "partnership" with their horse, others don't.

Let's put it this way, all children are different, right? So some discipline techniques work great for some, but not for others. In my opinion, horses are just like little children....say maybe a 3 or 4 year old. They learn great by repeat repeat repeat, they have a SHORT attention span, sometimes even a little ADD, and you have to remind them OFTEN of what the rules are. Just like Children, different techniques work for different horses.

I have a friend who is a trainer, she finishes some NICE barrel and reining horses. Her technique is to be loud, in their face, abrupt....and it works for MOST of her horses. My horse HATES her, why....he's sort of a shy quiet guy and her techniques just send him over the edge. When I talk softly, show him what he is to do, or what is unacceptable in a way that isn't loud, abrupt and in his face...he takes to it immediately and seems to ask for more things to do......

So like I said, it depends on you, and your horse, and what works best for you both....

^ yes, I agree with her!
And that was probably parelli's first goal, to create that for every rider, butIMO he has twisted it into money making, and he has made a few robots along the way.
IMO he twisted natural horsemanship until it's not natural anymore, EVERY horse (unless it has lived alone it's whole life) will understand natural horsemanship. Because natural horsemanship is adapting and learning to the horses language, not anything else.

Parelli has made it seem like NH is when the horse And you are equal, well do you think the herd leader thinks he's equal to the other horses, haha no! And most of them LIKE it to be that way! Most horses like to be told what to do! Not expected to know. Personally, my horse is a dominent mare, so we argue, but we have finally found equal ground and YES in some situations I trust her to make decisions and I look at her as equal, but when needed I make sure I make the decision, and she accepts that. Because I can't afford to have a horse argue with me when it's a danorous situation. So she accepts when I need to play leader, and I accept when she can play leader. But parelli doesn't understand that not all horses want it that way, and that might now work for some people or horses.
