I hear hot and cold things about Parelli. I have several people at my barn that are more than willing to teach me (one at level 4 and other at 3). But I've heard that it can mess up the horse, pretty badly.
I really liked the bit about improving your relationship with the horse, but some of the other things in Parelli seem to make sense. I'm must being careful before I dive in headfirst. Opinions and experiences with Parelli are much appreciated.
Also, the horse is currently training with traditional methods.
