    Can't you people control yourselves? Ever? We were all having a good time, picking on Parelli, and you had to go and ruin everyone's fun with politics. The election is over. Move on, please.

    You are right, truly you are. But since most R's don't tend to fight back for the most part, I thought I might start a trend of dishing it back. But, it was in the wrong forum, should be OT, not here. I apologize if you misunderstood what I was trying to do (see, I CAN do it!! Yay, me!!)

    Okay, I'll stop now...

    Or even actual Pony Club. The OP says she's in Chesterfield, which is a few miles south of Richmond, VA. Right in the heart of horse country, certainly not an area with a dearth of qualified trainers, instructors, veterinarians, and educational opportunities. As a minor, I realize that the OP is limited by finances, but she's in an area where there exist plenty of opportunities to learn.

    Why has the usual planted Parelli-ite not shown up by now? Where is naturalequs or 7?

    BTW I saw Catwalk at Spruce and he did very well indeed, now they can bridle him (maybe).

    yes, we have been wondering, and that this has gone on for so long is now giving cause for concern!

    Seriously, I hope 7 is well.

    Am I right?
    We wish you a Merry Christmas,
    We hope you have a Silent Night,
    And we hope there will be Peace on Earth,
    And everyone lives to see first light.

    Merry Christmas from the warmbloods! We don't bash parelli because we don't know much about training programs. With any training program, it's always do this, do that, jump this, piaffe, etc. Never "innovate," "be creative," "buck after clearing jump" or "spook." All those training programs stifle our creativity.

    OP, we're sorry people took over your thread. Have a Merry Christmas.

    Hey Parelli's and politics go hand-in-hand. Where else but America can a amateur rider at best, from another country, marry a cowboy and build a multi-million $$$ horse training business without benefit of a show record, students with a show record or even really knowing a lot about the basics of classical training. Now after, training with some of the best for 15 years she's finally reached', maybe, a AA level. And I see and hear more about her than the poor cowboy that started it all.

    Finally the wantabe is playing in the sandbox with the big boys;

    And to OP. No money is no excuse for not educating yourself. 4H, pony club a lesson a couple of times a year are all possible. It's part of owning a horse as much as feeding and Vet care. For the good of the horse. If you can't afford that, you can't afford a horse.

SushiSamba restaurants have an amazing selection of sparkling saki, and that's a great combo. But since sparkling saki is not on my local grocer's shelves, what's left but Sapporo <snore>.
    It really wasn't a planned pairing... I just can't go to Wegman's for groceries without getting sushi (they have excellent sushi for a grocery store), and I felt like a stout. But it was a BBQ eel rangoon roll, which actually did rather nicely with the chocolate-y stout.

    There's a wasabi ale out there that is pretty awesome... I usually find that IPAs or hoppier beers tend to go well with sushi, but I prefer Kirin...

    How about if we switch to ruining everyone's fun with religion? Because I have heard that there is an overlap of NH and Scientology, if a horse person is a practicing Scientologist, he/she is likely also a Parelli follower.

    Anyone else heard that?

    that's a new one, but does not sound too far fetched.

    OP: look into Pony Club or 4-H. And if you are at a barn full of people who think Parelli will fix a 'hot' horse (one who's forward), switch barns. If you can't afford a trainer to help you fix the horse, sell the horse and use the board money for lessons, especially if it's a horse a trainer has refused to get on.
