Donīt know how cool it is talking about someone I donīt know or a member on this site.
I think itīs ok to talk about the Big Picture.
I see two schools, Montey Roberts Join Up and Pat Parrellis My Space Your Space.
I see a combination of the two, I want a partnership with my horse "join up";
I also want my space respected at times!
Montey is the ground work, you build up a relation first,
Parrelli is the advance work which you accomplish with Patience and Time, and this is what is good with Patīs way, through his courses and the
high price you are forced to spend time with your horse.
I am not too keen on all the rope twitching and whipping, reminds me of the old Diana Warwick song Heart Breaker, How can I love you when your not around....or in the horses case at arms length. Weather animal or human that is not the way you build a relationship.
