Well I would hope there wouldn't be any more negativity.......but hey, if we get slammed yet again, at least we aren't the ones making fools of ourselves.

I'd say the only ones making fools of themselves are the ones who refuse to listen to anyone's opinions other than their own. The point of the thread was to be glad that this horse was receiving a second chance at life. The way you train a horse to be ridden, ground manner ect. Everyone uses different methods, the way an individual person is able to connect to, understand and teach that horse is going to have a much higher success rate than someone who mindlessly follows what someone else says without trying to understand all aspects of the situation. Even in a controlled learning group, not one person can do a training method like another person. So just because you and this other woman were PP followers doesnt mean that some other knowledable person couldnt have found and resolved the problem. So to blantantly dismiss people for saying that no one other than a PP follower would have dared take in this horse was very foolish.

quote from Mike:
The Natural Horsemanship forum was added so that those who are interested in Natural Horsemanship techniques would have a place to discuss them. We ask that those who are not interested in or dislike them abstain to allow for the continued enjoyment of others.
Please respect the Conscientious Etiquette Policy and let's try to stay positive and progressive. We realize that Parelli might not be a favorite in this forum, but do remember that there are people like me, spirithorse, and HorsesAreForever that do use Parelli's methods and would really like to be able to share our progress and so on with each other without having to get well...what this and the "What do you think about Parelli" topics are/were getting.

I just want to make sure that what I posted was not taken too negatively.

I think PP is brilliant, an amazing trainer and clinician and NH is a great way to work with horses.

My point was that it was indeed a blessing the horse was taken care of(as per the OP), though PP really didn't save him IMO(and of course where it is not fair that people openly bashed you guys for saying it, it is just as unfair that you are not at least willing to say yeah we see your point and respect your opinion as well, that could have saved a lot of hostility...).

Yes a PP trainer will probably work wonders with him, but it is not only a PP trainer that could do so. I'm sorry your thread got bashed so hard, I agree it was unnecessary.

Good luck with the horse, let us know if it is a back problem(read that somewhere on here), just goes to show how ignorant people are wanting to put him to sleep rather than taking the time to actually see what was wrong....
