Problem with a lot of that is that people don't know how to deliever a correction without acting like a predator in some way. That's the difference between another horse giving a correction and a human giving a correction.

Did I miss the fact that we humans are a predator no matter what we do? Eyes on the front of our head.....we be predators.

Period.

No amount of rope swinging and whip rubbing changes the location of our eyes and changes are status as predator.

It won't change the fact that we were born a predator, but working with the horse in a natural way will change their OPINION of us. Working with a horse in that way will help him trust us, when every part of their DNA is designed not to....that's the beauty of it. It's the human acting more like a horse.

I want to act like a human. We have much more developed brains than horses do. But thanks anyway.



I have never done any fancy packaged NH stuff and my horse(s) walk up to me quite willingly so they are obviously not quaking in their hooves about me suddenly eating them.

No, but mine are! Muaahaahaa!!!!

They're deathly afraid of me! I can tell how askeered they are when they gather around me to see which one of them comes in first for food!

Yep, that's me. Evil, predatory human who refuses to play 'hide the hiney' games with my horses.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

All this time, I never realized the potential trauma I must have caused my own horse the times I've taken him camping. . .there he was, tied to a high-line while I - the predator - grilled out steaks or burgers just twenty feet away! He must have spent the whole night thinking HE was going to be BREAKFAST!

That is also the difference between someone ignorant giving a correction and someone who knows what they are doing giving a correction. A stupid person will generally screw up the training on a horse regardless of which method they choose and that is precisely why stupid people should not train horses. Someone who doesn't know what they are doing can terrorize a horse just as quickly with a stick and string as they can with a whip and chain.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

It seems as though many people think Parelli = DVDs, books, special expensive equipment, and that all this is wrapped up in a promise for "success"??? But I don't believe that's entirely true. The Parelli System has real, live teachers, who DO think for themselves-- they're not carbon copies, at least in my experience--and they expect you to think things out. They are crucial to the program. I never heard of anyone trying to train a horse using ONLY DVDs and lesson plans! You could easily find yourself confusing your horse.

Just wanted to throw that in, to be fair. (I'm not a Parelli student, also can't afford it, but I go to their clinics, and the teachers are generous in their help. If you didn't know, you'd think they weren't Parelli...)
