    You will not find a lot of Parelli supporters on here, but if you like what you see in his DVDs and what you read in his books than go for it. Try not to copy what they show you there, just get an idea and see what works for you and your horse. I am not a big fan of Parelli as a person but I believe that some of his basics are helpful. In the end you have to see what technique is a good fit for you and your horse. Every single horse needs a different approch in training and it is a great experience to train and work with a horse, so good luck and enjoy it!

    I am just a newbie at training but I started by just reading Storey's Guide to Training Horses and watching Monty Roberts. I have had wonderful results with Monty Roberts Join-Up. Basically watching the horse and working at a patient pace. My new filly is resisting join up but she is making great progress. She had been neglected and abused in the past so trust does not come easy for her. I had a 4.5yo gelding that was plain mean to everyone and would bite just for the fun of it. I started with the basics with him and did join up. He became the biggest baby in just 2 months. He would still get antsy with others but with me he was a snuggle bug. Every horse is different. You definitely have to be flexible with your style IMO. IMHO trust and a solid relationship is the most important aspect. One thing Monty Roberts said that I tend to agree with is that since a horse is a "flee" animal it feels anything new can be harmful. Instead of letting them learn every little thing is safe, let them learn to trust and listen to you then they won't worry about the little things. Anyway that's where I have started my training journey. :)
