    You'll need two pair so you can put some clean ones on after wading through the bul*****.

    On the WEG site he's listed under the heading Clinicians/Educational/Lectures.

    Someone made a mistake, he belongs under the Entertainment banner.

    Ok, people that have been to Europe and around the horse scene over there, do they have anything comparable to PP? Or is it just us silly Americans?

    The PPs (and others) tried it there - I'm not sure it goes down too well.

    from Louise Skelton's (eventer) blog;

    "As for Charlie, he had a serious career change two weeks ago when I was asked by the BEF to be a guinea pig at a Pat Parelli day at the Unicorn Trust at Stow on the Wold and I took him as my horse to be taught on. After listening to Pat for two hours about the Parelli technique and his experiences of rodeo riding, he gave us a display on his quarter horse pony and did such things as bouncing a ball next to his horse and riding it without a bridle - all good crowd pleasers, but I'm not sure how often you would use it in everyday riding! Charlie was a little concerned about the spectators and the excitement of an indoor school with other horses in it. When he got a little spritely Pat told me I had to get off him - this is not a trick I am usually allowed to do at home where I have to just work them through to submission. He was then lunged (or lunged cowboy style) and this was all going well until Pat decided to make him change direction by waving a telescopic dressage whip at his head, Charlie thought it was time to make a sharp exit and in the process I let go of him.

    I then got told off for letting him go and that I should have held on tighter! All I was worried about was that Charlie Hutton’s Grand Prix dressage horse (another guinea pig) wasn’t going to get injured by my rather anxious ex-racehorse! But with some skilful cowboy riding Pat hooked Charlie back up so he couldn’t get into any more mischief (as long as I held on tighter!). Poor Charlie then got taught to go sideways and backwards in rather unorthodox ways, but did seem to take to it quite well. He certainly had lots to think about and did calm down so I rode him around doing dressage later on and he walked and trotted over all of the blue plastic that all the other horses were petrified of. I think this bodes well for cross country as he shouldn’t be too scared of anything! This was certainly a day and a half out for Charlie and the next day he was found at various intervals in his stable flat out!"

    The Parelli's had to hook Walter Zettl into the 'great horsman shooow', in order to draw crowds over there!

    They are not gullable like Americans.
