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.
Linda and Pat Parelli
