I'm not angry. I really just wanted to know who you do respect since I heard who don't respect - I was just curious nothing more.

Not any more than any other active, smart horse is hard to fix. And if the horse isn't a problem til he works on it, that's a problem with him, not the horse.
Seriously... I find warmbloods the most hyper-sensitive and then aggressive horses of all the various breeds I've handled. I find that if mistakes are made they better not be serious mistakes or else someone will pay. They are not very forgiving and then so athletic that it'll knock your socks right out of the ball park.

He's not perfect but neither are any of you. He's just trying to survive in the industry like any trainer. He has his way and you have yours. Plain and simple.
Agreed. There is a lot worse out there. Is PP a super human - no he's just a human. His program is a framework and is only as good as the person using the methods, principles etc. He doesn't advocate abusive methods so my hat is off to anyone like that

I found his display with Catwalk 100% abusive. And a vulgar display of power.

IMO he did what he felt was necessary to get the job done. I don't find it to be abuse at all. Maybe a little over the top but certainly not abuse

What do you think of twitching then? Or hobbling a horse? Perhaps tying a horse's leg up? The majority of the big names in the horse industry do use aids such as that an when used correctly they can be very effective. So what if you don't like it, then don't use it plain and simple. Complaining about it does no good.

An AQHA judge once told me that "the people watching the class are always experts and will be the first ones to tell me that I'm wrong". And its so true, you go to a horse show and listen to people talk about how someone is riding a horse wrong or how the judge is stupid and has no idea what he's doing.

Just shut up already. Clearly he is a remarkable horseman and has made him self a million dollar industry because of it. If you don't like his methods then that's fine you don't have to. To each is own.

I'm tired of these endless Parelli debates on here. If you don't like him cool, you can't please everyone

O-kaaay! I spoke too soon in saying that we're all trying to be constructive here.

I'll leave your venomous words for mods to decide if they were deserved.

Shut up?? What are you 3 years old?

The reason the Catwalk issue was so controversial..is because it directly contradicts his entire philosophy. The definition of "Natural Horsemanship" states: "Natural horsemanship is the philosophy of working with horses by appealing to their instincts and herd mentality. It involves communication techniques derived from wild horse observation in order to build a partnership that closely resembles the relationships that exist between horses." I've never seen wild horses hobbling/twitching one another..have you?

If you don't like Parelli debates, stop participating in them/reading them. If you put yourself in the public eye, the public will form their opinions, as they are entitled. As a public figure I am sure he and his wife are aware of this and care less than you do about what people say about them on an internet forum.

Venomous? Seriously? I am sure you will be ok.

Edited to Add: I went back and read many other comments that say virtually the same thing (scam, sham, waste of money, cruel, marketing ploy, etc etc.)

I said my peace, and I leave it at that. I agree there are flaws in his methods and "advertising". I also agree that everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

I also wanted to point this out to Delete. Two issues were involved: one, flat-out, the way PP handled Catwalk, & two, the fact that PP had written in his bood that he won't use tools of force/restraint, such as twitches, & that they are "akin to rape".

Starlite, there's a big diff between critical words for PP & personal attack on me/my motives, which is what you engaged in.
