Hi guys just thought I would post this as Parelli has done a lot more for me than just to improve my horsemanship.
So this is my story.
On Christmas day of 2009 my father found out that my mother had been cheating on him for nearly their whole marriage, which is more than my whole life. It was the worst thing to ever happen to my family. My mother basically left us. My father was desperate he offered her a chance to come back three times and she said no and just left without any explanation to us her children or her husband. She told us that it was mostly because of her mother putting her up for adoption when she was younger which made her feel unloved and said she wasn't getting enough love from her family or husband so she found it else where that is what really got me she had the best life anyone could have a place for her horse a horse bought for her and now she struggles to get by and she doesn't do anything for her kids. My dad pays for everything we need, he feeds us he pays for me horses and my Parelli obsession. She says she doesn't know how someone can leave their child but I felt like she was doing just that to us so I really didn't understand her. I went through the worst phase of my life so far and I really didn't think I would make it through it any time soon. I used my horses as an escape from the real world and what was going on in my life but my life problems was affecting my horsemanship I found myself taking the anger I had for my mother out on my horses which made me feel worse. I knew there was something wrong in my head when I was doing wrong by my horses. That was when I found Parelli I had heard of it before even sort of tried it but never really got into it but I went with my Dad on a holiday to the British Open showjumping championships which had a Parelli zone with Parelli Professionals from the UK there. Myself and my dad where inspired and he bought me the starter kit and signed me up to the savvy club. I started doing Parelli with my three horses Patch Phoebe and Dreamer. It instantly changed everything. I was enjoying being with my horses again. It was fun again and not annoying or just a way to take out my anger it didn't take out my anger it got rid of any anger I had because I was having fun with my horses again. It has changed my outlook on life and now I think I can make it through life at one stage I didn't think life was worth living over these past couple of months and I used to think of how awful a life someone must have to not want to live and I experienced what that felt like and I don't want to ever feel like that again and thanks to Parelli I know I won't feel like that again and if I do I know I can just go out and play with my horses and I will feel better again.
So that is what Parelli has done for my life not just for my horses.
What's your story?
