Pat Parrelli
 
I've been looking for good training videos that could help me with my gelding. I was recently on youtube watching some of Pat Parrelli's videos. It was hard for me to understand because it seemed like the horses he was using already knew the exercise. Do you know of any other good videos/trainers I should look into? Am I misinterpreting Parrelli's videos? :?

If you're going to follow someone's channel, I suggest Clinton Anderson. He seems to be level headed.

I dabble in a lot of different trainers.. and make stuff up as I go along too.

Though I am not a fan of Parelli at all.. my old barn had this couple who would HOUND me to join and begged me to let them train my horse.. yeah.... no...

I love Pat Parelli! His approach is to create a partnership with your horse, and I try to understand his methods but I never got his videos or joined his club. I ended up borrowing a Clinton Anderson book and using his methods, which are more no nonsense. I understand Cinto. Better and feel like I have found a solution for every problem I have had to deal with, which was a lot with my rejected mare. She was a rearing, bridle hating, saddle hating, cinchy, prancing, kicking out danger to humanity when I got her. With CA methods (and Parelli and Julie Goodnight), she is coming on to lovely, fast, and fun.

In the end it will be your horse that teaches you the best! It is nice and sure a good way to youtube some of the trainers and their methods to get some basic ideas but in the end I find that each horse needs individual training and the methods that worked for the one horse do not necessary work for the other one. But I do believe that watching videos on Youtube give you a great idea on the basics so just go ahead and compare the different trainers and use the methods that make the most sence for you! Enjoy it and all the best for you training process!!!!

Thanks! I found a few videos of his on youtube. His methods are more suited to my gelding than Parrelli. My gelding tends to be hard headed and flinchy on the ground and under saddle due to being locked in a tiny 10 x 10 stall for two years, and having a complete beginner ride and take care of him. (I got him for very cheap because the lady didn't tighten her cinch enough, and when she rode him, the saddle rolled underneath him, so the woman ended up being bruised pretty badly. She blamed my poor gelding and refused to ride or take care of him ever again. She just left him at the stable with the crazy BO, who also though he was horrible and sold him to me.) lol, sorry, rant. Cookies for you if you read it. :) I won't even go into how nuts the BO was. I'll just say she shouldn't have horses, or have a boarding stable.

There was a lengthy thread that covered much of what you'll likely hear again.

Fort fireman posted an interesting Parrelli poster :lol: you can check out on that string.

Did u mean Clinton A was more suited to your gelding? I think his methods are good for horses who have been confused by humans in their past. I think my girl had been able to get away with murder because her last owners were extremely green scaredy cats so every time she would act up, they would back away. She was the boss! So I needed to show her she lost that job and now I was the boss & CA really helped with that!

lol, now I'm a bit confused. I went on the "Parrelli or not?" thread and watched the Catwalk video. My sister's horse is head shy and I don't want to twitch her or pull her leg up with a rope. She's a really sweet mare other than her head shyness, and I think that Parrelli's method would scare her.

Yes I did mean Clinton A. :) I had already tried a few of his methods on my gelding, and they worked well.

Personally I think it's good to watch all trainers and pick at what would work best for you and your horse.

Not one method will work for everything, trust me. Horses aren't one size fits all :)
