If I spend an hour with my horse, I would spend 15 minutes on each, also to keep her even.
But what do you DO with your horse?

The problem with Parelli is that it targets horse owners with hyper and exciteable horses, usually forgetting about the ones that you could beat over the head with a carrot stick and they'd fall asleep. For example, take my Arthur. Parelli's methods simply don't work with him because of his personality. My energetic mare has benefited some from using his methods, but she's a different type of horse than Arthur is.

Online: back up, cirlce, figure 8, sideways, jump, make her back up by picking up her tail :), half circle to sideways canter, stand on objects (this takes a lot of courage for a horse, its like us going to stand on something that we think is going to hurt us), circle and change direction in the space of like 2 seconds and so much more! Liberty: (no halter) sencd out and bring back, my horse can do circles around me at canter until I ask her to stop and I don't need to keep sending her, I walk my horse walks, I imitate a trot or canter movement and my horse will do so!, send over a jump and loads more! Freestyle (pleasure riding): everything that everyone else can do but all I need to do to make my horse for forwards is bring all my energy up! And again, everything said before but with no bridle/halter(i use a halter) finesse (like dressage): everything like normal dressage but with no bit in my horses mouth and make then go using the same way as before!

My horse is a LBE, passively dominant light draft type guy. His method of becoming a leader is ignoring any pressure at all. However, he was started with the Parelli method and since then he has been trained with natural horsemanship methods exclusively (ok, I know they are often similar with many traditional methods, too. ;) ), and this type of training has been only beneficial to him - he's now active, alert, interested in people, and, though passive dominance is still his game, I do the 7 games with him on a regular basis during groundwork and I really, honestly can say that he understands them and responds to them well. If to some only more active horses respond to Parelli - then my guess is something has been misunderstood in the whole pressure thing. It cannot be used as a system, it has to applied to each horse by his character individually.

My horse is exactly the same! In parelli they use horsenalities, and there is certain things to do that will motivate him, why he wont do anything is because to hime, its not interesting enough.

I think parelli's a good groundwork for doing dressage

So if you're going to go on a 2hr trail ride, you would spend 2 hours doing ground work first?

Is there a point at which a "Parelli" horse becomes ok to pull out of it's stall or turnout and just hop on?

I personally wouldn't attempt to pigeonhole how I train my horse because I have worked with several trainers and any ideas/suggestions they have that I deem to be sane and reasonable, I'll try. I don't believe that a program with steps A, B, C, D to follow when training a horse will work with all horses. Each horse has a different personality and attitude and if a particular training method isn't working, it's time to find a new one instead of annoying/irritating the horse by repeating the same thing over and over.
I agree with you :)
I also take tips from different trainers but don't follow just one program. But I really like learning others methods. I also attended to PNH clinic.

Delfina, mine is ok to do so. But I consider doing a little groundwork before riding just a common courtesty in order to see what is the horse like in the exact training session and day.

There is no need to play with your horse for that long! Theyed be tired out! But I never go on trail rides that long so its probably best to ask someone else ;)
