    If it doesnt stare at them from across the round pen for hours I want it to be literally illegal for them to touch it.

    What a joke of a post!

    So I guess that would make you - the Pro-Parelli Joker.

    "Many who attended enjoyed the experience. Many of them left having a great time. NO ONE is forcing anyone to use Parelli techniques.

    Get over it. Many people do play games with their horses. We also ride and enjoy our equine partners."

    Great, glad to hear it. Bully for you. And what does this have to do with dressage?

    Didn't think so.

    I don't have a closed mind, 7. I've evaluated Parelli NH and just don't have a use for it.

    I learned the basics of what the Parellis are trying to teach from a cowboy who didn't have special equipment or descriptive names. But he showed me the need for softness and good timing and helped me understand how the horse sees us humans.

    I learned similar things from Ray Hunt --
    "see how little it takes to get your horse to ...."
    "the horse knows when you don't know"
    "always reward the try"

    And I carry those ideas with me in everything I do and I continue to work on developing the kind of feel both of these horsemen had. I'll never get there, but I keep trying. Because I know it takes time -- something the Parellis don't seem to understand.

    I wouldn't even comment on the Parelli/NH stuff if it weren't for the hubris they show in trying to turn dressage into the "collection games" and the over-promising they continually engage in.

    Wow, I missed a lot while I was out 'polishing my tiara'....

    I'm pretty sure that once this thread is off the first page, the Parelli's will be outta-sight outta-mind in the dressage world and we'll all go along our separate but equal ways, leaving dressage people to work on dressage and NH people to play their games.

    Other than confirming many unflattering stereotypes about Americans... What was your point here?

    What does German have to do with anything? Think we settled that issue over 50 yrs ago.

    The Parelli's are going to Germany. I guess you're not reading skallywag's posts. I could explain the logic to you, but as it is, I work with too many adolescent boys during the day.

    You ignore, or perhaps are not aware of, that true horsemen and women pick and chose their mentors and narrow down the list as they become more experienced.

    One might chose a respected vet, respected breeder, and a respected trainer to have on their roster as the go-to people for advice. Granted there may be other professionals who are very capable, but for whatever reason, true horsepeople are very selective in whom they seek guidance from.

    There is no harm whatsoever in choosing not to embrace the Parelli method of training horses, while accepting the principles of other top professionals.

    Educated minds didn't become that way by being closed.

    So, so sorry I uttered the name "Beetlejuice", uh, 7HL.

    7, I've got you on ignore, so don't bother. I don't open your posts, but see you resurrected when I invoked your name. Skally, you're going there, too.

    Dittos to Mardi, mp, Guilherme and a host of others. When you Germans put together your Dressage Summit, I'd like to attend!

    The only unfortunate aspect of the" ignore" feature is that we see those folks when they are quoted by others.

    That's the sad part about the members if this forum.. They don't feel she has anything to offer, yet the reality is she has a LOT to offer... The masters of the discipline see and embrace it, it's a shame the rest of you don't...
    She never has stated nor implied she is a Dressage Instructor...
    Yeah right.....

    Yes. And I'm sure a lot of the folks here would love to see a real NH trainer like Buck Brannaman not a wannabe like Linda Parelli.
