Has anybody read the book on Parelli's Natural Horse-Man-Ship?

5 posts in this topic

I am in the process of reading a book called "Natural Horse-Man-Ship" by Pat Parelli. It is interesting because his approach to training horses comes from a aspect of putting yourself into the horses shoes... so to speak. Thinking more like the horse than human. He describes how we must understand that to a horse we are considered preditors and the horse is a prey animal. His methods use very few tools and sound very practical.

I was just wondering if anybody has read this book or heard of his methods and what are your comments...

I just picked this book up about 2 months ago at a garage sale for $1.00 and it was brand new. I am slowly reading it, it's really a great book so far.

Let me know what you think about the subject and maybe we can discuss some of the topics fishtrapgirl.

I think that his methods make total sense... Just need to make sure that I put the methods into practice.

Sounds like you got a heck of good deal for a $1.00... smile

Yeah, the lady didn't have a price on the book, I asked how much she wanted, she said " Would one dollar work?" I should have said No, thats too much. She also had a brand new boxed set of John Lyons training videos, six of them, she said $5 for those. I haven't watched them yet. Wish I would have gotten to her garage sale earlier because she had a couple of saddles also, she probably sold those for $10, LOL.
