New Rant About Parelli BS

I found this so fitting I had to borrow it.

The Parellis capitalize on the insecurities of their followers. They are con artists who combine their equestrian philosophy with product placement. Having to un-Parelli my mare taught me way too much about their crap.
“Oh your horse doesn’t listen to you? Buy these branded DVDs and items.”
“Your horse doesn’t behave well enough to ride yet, you need more of our products”
“Your horse isn’t perfect- Pay for our clinics.”
“You can’t possibly survive a ride on your horse without our assistance”
“You must be scared of your horse if you need a helmet.”
“You are less than us, give us more cash to feel more worthy”

All of these statements ring true. Is it any wonder I call them nut jobs?

Stable Vice or Stereotypie? from Horse&Rider | EquiSearch

Stable Vice or Stereotypie? from Horse&Rider | EquiSearch:

Captain has started chewing on wood. It is really frustrating, and he gets 24/7 turnout. I have made the decision to send him back home because I have been unable to keep good weight on him despite getting fed twice as many calories a day as he should get. It's been an up-and-down past 7 months, so I think it's time that he be retired fully, and my vet said the same thing. He's just not physically comfortable enough to keep working at upper levels.
