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.

    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem. 
    • I am from Richland Center.
      I have 2 2500 stradics in dis-repair.
      Both bales refuse to return to closed.
      Heard it may be simple as a spring.
      I am kinda cheap….if costs a lot to fix i will buy new reel. Anyone know somewhat local repair person that is reasonable?
    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
