Parelli Colt Starting Naturally - WOW

So I've been watching the web cast of the Parelli Colt Starting Naturally Event that took place last weekend. Not only am I pleased to be able to enjoy this event, but the affordability couldn't be beat! For $29.95, I have been able to learn so much and never leave the comfort of my living room. I hooked my laptop to to surround sound stereo system and 52" flat screen TV and am enjoying the show! I will continue to watch the segments throughout the week.

If you haven't watched this yet, it is a must see. An awesome display of putting the relationship and the horse first. I am truly enjoying seeing Pat Parelli teaching students rather than just showing off his own skills. His horsemanship truly shines in this program. His kindness and knowledge are demonstrated and I can only image how helpful that is to his students and the horses they are working with. Everyone is doing well, learning a lot, and being respectful. No rules, no time limits, it is not a contest, just a place to learn, grown, and develop young horses. Thank you Pat!

If you were wondering, I've started a few horses in my day and certainly restarted many. I know from watching that I've been on the right track but need to really progress further in a more diligent manner (no more hesitation to move forward)....I am truly learning a great deal.

Make the colt starting a great and fun experience for you and your horse. Never end on a bad note, always end on a positive. Your future performance horses will look forward to the next time you work with him.

It would really be great to opt for colt starting to better instill the skills, behavior and relationship for better riding.
