and saranda, mine would usually be fine as well, but id hate to get on her without her wanting me to. Also, I do the cinch up in three goes to see if she is in any discomfort. So i'd do it up a bit, play a bit, do it up a bit more, play a bit, then do it up, play quite a bit and then get on ;)

I also like combining groundwork and bareback riding in one session - for example, work with yields from ground and then continue it with the same thing, just from mounted position, to establish the new elements. :)

I don't agree with it. I don't agree with Monty Roberts. I don't believe you have to buy DVD's, a dually, a 'carrot stick' to be able to train your horse. Horse sense teaches a human, a trainer with experience can help you but if you do it right then you shouldn't have a problem, working from respect on the ground to working under saddle. Perhaps you want to call it parelli or monty roberts, but if you REALLY think about it, all the fundementals of riding a horse regardless of discipline are the same.

So no, I don't agree with parelli, or anything like that. There are many ways to skin a goose, but I don't need to teach my horse circus tricks to do it.

I've spent 15 pounds on my horses equipment since I bought herN she was orginally rode tradtionally so she had a saddle and bridlde, but I sold the brile for 30 so I made 15! I've never bought a dvd. And whip: funny coloured carrot stick and really short carrot stick to me. Theres many ways to skin a goose, but id rather teach my horse circus tricks (even though I don't) thaty scare them into doing it.

I don't want to scare my horse in to doing things either, that would be dangerous on my part. There are other ways to train the parelli way, and perhaps I train the more 'classical' way, but my horse has never been unhappy, or scared. I use a rope halter to do groundwork, because I'd rather not use a stallion chain- I have once, and only once, and she hopefully will never need it again.

what is a stallion chain? And how is a horse first trained 'classically'.

Savvy, it's not always either Parelli or alike, either scaring a horse into doing something. I'm pro natural horsemanship, but I know many good horsemen that do completely traditional training, yet their horses are active, happy and willing.

A stallion chain works in the way a rope halter does.. but perhaps a bit more firmly.. to put it politely. Its in no way cruel if used correctly, as with a rope halter. Its a chain that attaches to a headcollar and goes across a nose, and attached to a leadrope- depending on the hands depends on the results. If you're nervous around your horse, and your horse takes advantage it may take more than one use, and sometimes continuous use. I don't agree with this. If you have more capable hands, you should only have to use it once. Maybe twice at a push, I did when I first bought my mare- 18.1hh is a lot to hang on to when it says NO. Once it was used, and when I do groundwork, a knotted halter. But then you get, with everything, the 'cowboys' and I don't actually mean cowboys, just a term, that see fit to yank and pull and put as much pressure as possible on a horse's nose.

By classically, I meant traditionally. You teach the horse, the horse understands its job. If the horse is always wanting top position, as you get with some, greenies, stallions, mares, some bloodlines, and the horse tries you, you ask nicely once, and then correct by any means necessary.
