No, I didn't know the program-DVDs etc promise to do it all! All the Parelli-invloved I've ever met started with clinics. They have phone numbers and emails of people to call. The local bunch have meets every month, where the more experienced help the starters, and if there are ANY questions/problems, they can call the office
. I don't believe anyone is expected to follow the program in isolation. I'll ask about that this weekend, when we're trailering a friend's colt to a small meet.
(Very good post, 5cuetrain.)
