    One person on another forum summed it up really nicely:

    According to their theory, if I keep my car in perfect repair, then I'll never have an accident.

    There have been quite a few people in the Savvy Club DVDs that were wearing helmets. The last DVD we got, actually.

    IMO, that is not the point; the fact that the Parellis themselves are stating what the OP was saying is quite frankly disgusting.

    See my quote above.

    Exactly. It's not that they openly promote going bare headed but it is their position that accidents only happen on horses that are not trained; so if you follow their methods, you will have no need for protection. That is totally outrageous, egotistical, irresponsible, and dangerous.

    Agreed.

    I never really liked the program to begin with, but now I am absolutely anti-Parelli.

    ^^ Agreed. Parelli isn't going around saying that accidents won't happen if you do Parelli with your horse- they are saying that your chances of having an accident are GREATLY REDUCED because you have prepared your horse properly on the ground and have taken care of any issues BEFORE you get into the saddle. That's all they are saying, don't make it any more complicated than that.

    I don't understand what that has to do with a helmet

    My only thing is that you can't possibly take care of all training issues before you ever get on. There are some horses that take to ground work (even with a saddle) perfectly and never give any indication of misbehavior, then the instant you step on, they are rearing, bucking, fighting, dangerous monsters. Seen it, done it, and lived to see another day.

    It has to do with a helmet because a lot of people will get on a horse who is in no frame of mind to be ridden (be it scared/unconfident or dominant) and will wear protective gear because they know the horse is going to act up and they hope that the stuff will save them if/when they come off. Parelli is saying that if you solve the actual issues first, then you won't have that fear of the horse doing something.
