Parelli-positive thread

Ok since there always seems to be a debate about PP and threads get off track I am going to start this one.

I am going to set a few rules. Hope non of the other mods or Admin mind.

First ONLY POSITIVE PP info here. NO basing no getting off topic. I am in no way a PP fan. However I still would like there be at least one thread that people who do like him can talk in piece. If you are new to PP and want the other side there are plenty of thread that will give you that.

Second. ANY NEGATIVE comments of ANY KIND will be removed. No ifs ands or buts about it.

Ok start away and enjoy.

-I'm so busy... I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse.
-An Armed Man is a Citizen an unarmed man is a subject.
-Where ever free speech is stifled Tyranny will reign.

Thanks for this 'nrhareiner'.. I have no idea about Parelli or really many other NH methods but I would like to find out more... I dont neccessarily want to use all Parelli material and I cant afford to buy the DVDs etc but I feel its always helpful to add different bits of training into your own techniques...
So please can someone state the basic essence of NH techniques such as CA/Parelli etc..

NH is not about PP or any other trainer. It is a way to interact with your horse. You do not need to buy all the stuff. You just need to learn how horses think and react and then use that as a tool along with many other tools. There is no one way.

Most trainers use some type of NH even if they are not NH trainers. You have too. You have to under stand how the horse thinks. It is no different then understanding how a dog thinks or a cat thinks so you can train them.

I am in my currently involved in my first horse training experience, what PP taught me was how to interact with my horse, I did not go out and buy everything they require, but rather followed the games. I think every one will modify it to suit their ways, but it is a great base to start from if it is your first time.

I am not even that well versed in PP, but I do know that my horse trusted me because of the way we worked together and it was a great guide to learning to communicate with her.

I found it interesting when Pat explained why he named the circling game that name instead of lunging and the other games with some silly names. He said he used to call the circling game some type of lunging but people didn't listen/pick up on regular names so he made up the interesting sillier names for things. Like the friendly game is desenitizing, etc.
BTW I watched a few Parelli videos in which Pat does the exact same thing Clinton does. Clinton was a Pat Parelli student and you can really see that in his program. Clinton uses the 7 games too but I think he made them into 8 steps instead of 7 games. If you look past Clinton's more aggressive and to the point style, you can see just how much he was influenced by Parelli

PP called it lateral lunging. I think the whole concept of games is a really effective teaching tool and also the whole idea of playing games.

I also like how the sequence of the games is important in teaching horses and humans. But most of all I totally love the creativity.

Most of the NH people out there are doing really similar stuff. Jonathan Field was a 3star PP professional and his program is exactly the same but with different labels.

It's great to hear some positive stories
