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 Posted via Mobile Device
