i have never met Parreli in real, never saw his clinics or trainingsessions.
i saw only his followers reading his book and did what written was in the book, letter by letter i think?
(for several years i think 3)
I have aksed a mom of my formal stallmate if i may read the first chapter so i could understand what she was doing.
I had read it and thougth...how can you do this without any referencis. Just read and do...??
Her daughter was/is a traditonal rider and not intested in anything else. Her mom was very hesistate about horses but wanted to learn more about them by doing Parelli. She let her mom go in her own thing. She could not help her.
In mine opinion that doesn't work. I saw a lady, same stable, who is a realy parelli follower. She have a nice horse (a quarter) a real lady and was pretty happy i think at those times.
But she started to train her a la parelli...by the book... So i saw her working many times.
I could not see it..i look away
..it hurts..i did not like Parelli at all.
During those months of training i saw her horse get more and more act as a robot. My aversion to Parelli was growing.
Her farrier was a Parelli follower too and he liked what she show sometimes...
i got during those times more and more anti parelli.
Saw on internet some games and results i don't like either..so...no Parelli for me..
The mom whom i spoke to, had quit with the training, it had not helped her at all. Because she did not know what to do. Maybe because the horse a fjord did not react as was written in the book??
During the same periode my horse broke serveral times out of the paddock and he were put back to his stable each time. So i had decided to search for a new place which was better for him.
So i have no notice what is going on now, how the horses are these days.
Saw a few pics from one of them by a Parelli event token by some people who were there. Thats all.
So i have never bought his books or saw a DVD from him. Now i read this and heard from some other people who have his books and DVD but do also more than only Parelli, just bought it for interest.
They say that the books are changing, it is better written and more open for other things.
More freedom for the horse and some more dressage things.
So maybe it is now become some more in my direction??
and it is maybe...maybeeee, time to buy something form him.
Only it is toooo far tooo expensive for now.
I am good but not mad
i like to hear that here are people to who see something else and more or different then before.
