I can't answer that from a PNH perspective. I don't follow Parelli, so it wouldn't be fair to make a guess.
Personally, my thought is it really depends on the person and their goals. Some types of riding allow feet up to 45 deg out. Others want toes front. A beginner may be best off doing whatever keeps their leg relaxed, but then change with time to whatever sport they follow. But I don't know what Parelli teaches...
