    Think of how many horses out there can only go left- right- somtimes stop- and streight down the trail...
    How many horses sit in backyards and just rot away with little to no care and never even get rode?
    How many people do you know with horses that rear, buck, bolt, step all over their owners.
    How many horses get ridden more than once or twice a week?

    How many people are willing to invest time and money into training? Into a trainer? Into proper horse care? I've seen many on this forum who are not, but I hope in their future they might have a little more and be able to, I know many really want it.

    So, at least this person is doing somthing with her horse.
    If she is giving someone the insperation and guts to try again and get out there and ride... even if you do look like a fool for a long long time, then all the better.
    I agree.

    I'm not at all a fan of Parelli, as I think that it's a fluffy, feel-good, highly over-priced and over-rated way to learn some very basic horse-handling skills.

    Still, while this pair does have some work to do (I agree with the points made earlier in the thread about the "squishy" stops, etc.), at least the rider is actually doing something with her horse.

    In case this may help anyone: 1) I am not a Parelli kool-aider (a person who says only Parelli works) 2) I truly don't intend to insult people here; I've been direct, & there's a difference 3) I already know that a horse on a loose rein can be "on the bit", or accepting the bit; that's what I was talking about re: a cutting horse 4) Sharing your successes with horses is great, but telling humans, "I loooove my horse soooo much!" doesn't mean squat to the horse, who knows the truth. 5) I do agree with the 80/20 rule of thumb. I'm tired now; hope this helps clear up confusion about my views.
