I hope you realize that Parelli bashing threads seem to have the same common denominator...you. Please don't blame the bashing on us, realize that your preaching(which is exactly what it is) is unwanted/unnecessary just like religious preaching. We don't force our views on you, so please stop trying to assimilate us. All I was trying to say is that this is real life, not a fairy tale with all happy endings. Sometimes things don't work out as planned regardless of our best attempts. Have your views, but don't just dismiss realism as bashing. I'm sure I could've done wonders with that horse because I'm committed, dedicated, and concerned for the horse's well-being, but I don't believe in Parelli. IMO, the golden rule is to find what works and adapt to our horses needs. "There's more than one way to skin a cat."
Have a great day:)
Thank you to those of you who have posted POSITIVE responses, seeing as this is a POSITIVE thread
