If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all! :) Didn't we learn that in kindergarden? Show a little respect.

Just found out the lady who is taking this little guy was stalled next to me at the Parelli Celebration in Kansas City back in July!! What are the chances?! This is so cool! :)

I don't think the owner checked for back pain. If not, I do know his new owner will give him a good once-over for anything physical :)

I'm glad that you were able to help find the right person to help the horse. I currently have the same type of issue. There is an adorable 5 year old Arabian mare at a barn I train at, and she wasn't handled right, and has some issues, so the owner is seriously thinking of putting her down if I can't find someone to take her in, as I don't have the money to pay for board, otherwise I would take her in a heart beat. She's not a bad horse, its just that no one has taken the time with her. Maybe I'll try posting on some forums like you did, see if I have any luck.

Unfortunately, not all placements turn out to be success stories, and I don't think PP has anything to do with a good person taking in a desperate soul.
Parelli hasn't done anything in this case, if he had, there would be a rescue foundation that he invested his training fees into, which I don't think there is. I'm sorry, but I just don't see putting Parelli on a pedestal as something beneficial. That stuff is basic common sense anyway, he just had the smarts to make it profitable, for him.
I truly hope this story has a good outcome, I'm just trying to be realistic.

Actually, Parelli has everything to do with this. No one who was non-Parelli could do anything with him, just like my warmblood before I got him. I've had a report since on this horse and she is working him successfully on the ground and he's doing wonderfully. I'm doing things with my warmblood now that everyone else wouldn't have even considered doing. So yes, Parelli has EVERYTHING to do with this story.

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe Pat and Linda have started helping out horse rescues by picking a horse that is need of a home, helping to train it (using the 7 games ) then finding a dedicated home for the horse. I believe that they are doing that at all the Celebrations ....I know they did at the one in PA.

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

In my experience most of the people that claim a clinician are inferior to those that learn it and make it thier own. Statements like those above are why you get so much grief about preaching Parrelli. Just because the first competent person to handle this horse is a Parrelli kool-aid drinker doesn't mean that another competent horseman couldn't have fixed it.
