Response from Parelli, Regarding HSUS Partnership

I received the following on July 8, 2009 via email, from Elizabeth Andriot .

Thank you for your concern, however we do not share those same concerns as you. We have had many personal meetings with the HSUS and visited their offices and we have known the Director of Equine Protection for some years now. He is an avid Parelli student and has dedicated his life to protecting the dignity of horses from birth to the end of their life. Any 'rumors' we hear are taken straight to him to get the facts.

We fear you are being influenced by anti-HSUS propaganda which tends to make accusations based on rumors and opinions rather than facts, much the same as what happens to us! Perhaps you should take the time to visit personally with them at their offices so you have the opportunity to base your opinions on first hand experience.

I'm sure you wrote to us because you care about Parelli and for that we are most appreciative.

Yours naturally,

Linda and Pat Parelli


  1. Interesting. Just the same, one only has to visit the HSUS website to see their views on animal agriculture and meat consumption. I tend to think that the Parelli's may think a horse is more like a dog or cat than a cow or hog.

  2. Helping rehab and rehome displaced horses is an admirable and daunting project, and the Parelli's should be commended for taking it on. HOWEVER, if you *dance with the Devil*, the Devil doesn't change! There are plenty of web sites exposing H$U$, but many people put on blinders and/or choose not to believe or perhaps think they will get the good end of the bargain--not so! Since when did a pact with the dark side ever get someone a good result? Certainly there are good people who truly love animals who are working for H$U$ and who do not or will not see what the people at the top intend for animal ownership. That doesn't change the ultimate anti-animal-use agenda nor the fact that H$U$ lives off the lives of animals. Those who are *used* by H$U$ usually find out too late.

  3. Just check out and see for yourself what the HSUS has been doing in the US to eliminate animals in our lives.
