    Oh my. Parelli inside? What the heck! And if they're going to show her riding in the english saddle she really ought to have a proper seat! Not a western seat, just sitting in an english saddle!

    Besides the fact that they are an UGLY saddle, isn't it nice to know, that according to the Parelli's, sitting tall & keeping your legs underneath you was wrong all these years! Yeah, I'm sure GM will be thrilled to learn he's been telling us the wrong thing for years!!!

    Um. Isn't that supposed to be Linda?

    How the heck would I know...but I did read the fugly blog. That whole heels up, shoulders forward thing sent me to snorking.

    Well there's the Parelli Marketing Spin for ya...we can't actually ride in a correct position so we'll tell everyone else that right now = wrong and we're the ONLY people on earth doing it right. Yeah, yeah...that's it...that's the ticket!
    So $4000 for a saddle and $440 for the pad that goes with that saddle huh? Expected no less from the Parellis.
    And yeah...the horse "approves" of the saddle...I can tell by his ears.

    I guess I'm one of those riders that ' love to ride "English" '

    And - Yowza - the PRICES!!!!!! $239 for stirrups and $4,129.00 for the saddle!

    I think I'll get one though - they say that
    It is, basically, a "General Purpose" style saddle, with all sorts of unique components inside that make it special, and yet versatile.
    after all... I mean it has 'Parelli inside'™ and everything!! Woo hoo!

    Once I get mine, I'm going to try the heels up, shoulders forward thing on cross country!!!!

    then do I know how to ride?
    In the past, I'd say no...because you need the dvd's....but they've pulled those off the market because people were getting to linear. Not embracing the concepts.

    Is this saddle thing REALLY endorsed? Goodness.

    You beat me to it. I wanted to be the first to comment on the eye popping price tags!!!

    BTW - if she is going to ride with her toes down - she needs to use my sidesaddle break-away safety stirrup - so when her foot gets caught in the stirrup and she starts getting drug..... well you know what I mean..

    I once found myself in an arena full of people as Pat gave a rousing "Who'd like to be able to ride like Linda?". All around me people were sticking their hands in the air and yelling "Me! Me! Me!"

    I gave my wife a panicked look and we both sat on our hands.

    You bad people..come on now these saddles are ONLY FOR THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT THEIR HORSES.....(read their philosopy statement..these saddles aren't for everyone, just people who care about their horses)

    OMG, what an ass.....he tells his kool aid followers that now they have to spend another 4 grand or they don't care about their horses after all. After all the money they have forked over, they are abusing their horses unless they own his 4000.00 work of art.

    Yes, it is probably a computerized chip of him going on and on about how bad DRESS AGE is for your horse. Love how he berates the discipline, but he certainly wants you to buy his DRESS AGE saddle.

    5 bucks to get a CD on the saddles? What the heck. I'll put in 25 cents, anyone else? Then we can load it up on youtube and share the info with EVERYONE for free. What joke.

    The "don't drink the kool-aid" post I made about Andrew's introduction to clinician followers......that's how the woman told us the "real way" to ride - heels up, back slouched, sitting back on tailbone...not "up on your crotch like those English riders."

    AHAHA, I saw this on the fugly blog. I love that blog. Cracks me up and makes me feel like I've found a place to indulge in my inner, um, b****. And to the snorking for the heels up shoulders forward, I snorked too, all over my keyboard. HAHA.

    And those saddles do totally have that weird ugly tack vibe that makes you know no real horse person would go anywhere near them. Haha, especially for $4K!!!

    And the "parelli inside"... is that like a creamy caramel filling or something? Hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa = )
