Pat Parelli Abuses Horse "Catwalk" at Festival of the Horse Natural Horsemanship Demo
Well Parelli folks....
check out the new stuff on Youtube regarding Parelli and Catwalk.

Things have not changed since video of Linda abusing a one eyed horse.

Remember, when trainers become stressed out to the max...the horse pays the price.

Welcome to the reincarnation of P. T. Barnum

Did they finally post a video of it? *runs off to youtube*

HAHAHAHA i must say, i LOVED how the musicwas all soothing in the background, while Pat go all angry at a horse. Its sad he didnt just say: "okay, this horse is nervous to this new enviroment, so were not going to do as planned because he needs a littlemore work" *go out,get another hrose*

OR shown them what to do (in a nice way!!) when the horse is like that. AKA groundwork, to get his attention on you. then practice touching his ears and face in a relaxed way until he is relaxed.

I would have totally loved to be there. And stand-up and say: 'GOOD JOB PAT! keep up the GREAT horse whispering!!!'

He could have just said, 'hey, its still a troubled horse, not everything goes right all the time!' and they would have understood.

My horse used to be deathly scared of people touching her ears... it took a while, but everytime i brought her in from the feild, or wanted to ride, i would touch her ears... now i can touch her ears all i want. Its the simplest ways that work the best. lol.

Losing your temper is the biggest fault people have, it can compeltly ruin a horse.

Losing your temper is BAD when you're with horses. If you get mad, turn the horse out, and WALK AWAY. Calm down, take deep breaths and really think before you work with your horse when you get mad.

I watched two of clinton anderson's headshy videos on RFDTV, and he made ALOT of progress in just an hour. Wow, parelli's BS is really starting to catch up to him!

This is pretty sick as well:

Between this and Linda's video earlier this year I'm interested to see what direction the program goes.

Good heavens! Where's my popcorn?? *Sits back to watch the thread evolve*. :hide:

If Mr. Parelli wants to deal with his horses this way, more power to him. His horses, his party. If the owners of the horse are content to watch this carry on for the 2 hours described in the clip, that's their affair. That being said, call it what it is; it certainly isn't "love, language, and leadership". If Mr. P did that to my horse, I'd show him right where to put that carrot stick. :shock:

I've personally bridled horses, just seen a small kid at a 4-H meeting with a tall horse and ask if they needed help, slid the bridle on piece o' cake, and had the kid tell me that the horse had never been bridled without a twitch and a panic attack before. Perhaps there is a time or place for twitching/hobbling/whatever-the-heck he was doing, but it does look like a pretty darn harsh reaction for the simple "don't touch my head" evasion.

Wrong video. Oops.
