I have completed my level 1 w/ both horses and have started the level 2. I got into Parelli because I bought both my horses as babies and wanted to raise/train them myself. The program does not recommend starting a horse until your level 4 but I chose to back my horses following the program. I am very happy with the results and look forward to learning more.

Although I follow the Parelli Program I also like to learn from other clinicians. I do not think I will ever be able to learn enough about horses. The journey continues!

I do!! Im in New Zealand.- I have just submitted my level 1 audition although I have had horses my whole life. I have only just decided to really follow the programme and give it a go. You can't trash something if you dont understand it first & haven't given it a go eh!! Anyway, I am enjoying it so far. have been kind of dabbling for a few years & then in the last three years decided to really give it a go.

I sure am, I must admt I have spoken many a word against it in the past though, This in part due to my first experiences of the Parelli students were less than convincing. HOWEVER having looked into the program and had a dabble I can see These people were Professional Perpetual Level 1 Students. They never ride anymore & even though they love Parelli - their horses are sour & sick of the yoyo amoungst other things. They have never progressed from Level one because they learnt to back up a horse from a wiggly finger & now they are happy. OHHHhhhh How much more happy they AND their steads would be if they graduated L1

Its all quite similar isnt it. What I like about Parelli, is the support you get. The DVD's etc while expensive, they can be really helpfull, Im not so keen on the success series or the new levels I think they were both a big disappointment in all honesty. But I love the old blue & red levels

I agree with you Katana. I got so much from the old Level 1 and now Level 2. The new Patterns do not provide a fraction of the information. Too bad they don't offer them anymore. I got mine from another forum member.

Clinton Anderson use to be a student of Parelli's which may be why there are some similarities.

I'm hoping I can get my hands on one of the older Level 2 packages. I've seen some on Ebay, but they are selling for quite a bit more than the level 1 packages...maybe because there are less level 2 kits out there? I'll have to check my local Craigslist too.

I didn't know Clinton was a student of Pats...I always thought they were pretty similar. Just different names for things.

I was lucky enough to buy my L1 off Parelli & get the L2 free,Then I bought the Success Series & I was muchly disappointed.I have always wanted the LHB but couldnt afford $1000 to buy it & then they had a deal where if you bought the Success Series they gave away the LHB free.SO I bought a 2nd Success & got the LHB free. Then sold the Success Series on Trademe since I didnt need a 2nd copy.I use the success series for lending out to people to give them a taste of the programme. I dont want to lend my good L1 & L2 kits so its the SS thats goes out LOL

Clinton was a Level 3 graduate before going out on his own. I personally do not like Clinton at all.
