Apologies if this has been hashed out on here before. This is in no way a bashing thread - the Parelli's have certainly marketed some good ideas.
I'm just trying to understand Linda's reasoning for acting the way she does here - I can't see how what she is doing can be beneficial to this horse whatsoever. The horse evidently has no idea what is going on and what he is being asked, and yet she just keeps upping the ante rather than adapting her methods.
She also seems to have no respect for the lack of sight in one eye - at 4:15, when she starts yanking on the lead towards her, then slapping him on the face (which is downright confusing, and a conflicting command) she is asking him to move to his blind side, which is obviously something that is pretty scary to a blind horse.
Anyone got any insight to why she is doing this?
(Linda takes over at about 2 minutes in).
