    I don't think that I have to like all of the alligator wrestler's persona to appreciate a spectacular effort that works. I'll be first in line to say thanks and appreciate that they did something I couldn't or wouldn't do.
    Deep pockets and rabid determination must be accompanied by credibility to have any positive effect, and the credibility of the OP is sorely lacking (to put it mildly).

    If you look up "delusional" in the dictionary, just imagine whose picture is beside the word.

    Likewise, look up "chutzpah" in a Yiddish dictionary. I imagine the same stock photo would be there.

    Actually although I agree with the delusional aspect some of the points she brings out about how the business is right on.

    "Thank you to everyone for your input and please keep it coming. I keep telling the USEF that I am part of the solution and not the problem and that they need a “fixer”. Rest assured, I do not think it is me, because I have no desire to assist the USEF. One top trainer expressed that mountains can not be moved but this little pony mom has already been a force of change within and will continue my efforts for the masses."
    -Elizabeth Mandarino - Amber Hill Farm

    In my opinion............................

    Why would one want to continue to collect all the negative input that results from their postings on this board?
    She takes a written beating from hundreds of posters on this site...over and over and over.
    What we really need is a "fixer" (Mod 3, are you reading?) to stop EM from using this board for a vehicle to advance her pony selling/leasing and equestrian soapbox. When she posts links on the COTH board to her website she is directing them to a commercial site that advertises ponys and horses for sale and lease. Oh yes, she posts some editorial content and show results for her daughter but she really wants to move those horses. She is correct that she is a pony mom. I see her as nothing more. A force of change? I think not....perhaps a footnote in the history of the pony world as people continue to read her posts, self elevating articles, and all the legal documentation and correspondence that she posted in an attempt to call attention to herself. Perhaps she can self publish a book and sell it at the shows. She should stop presenting her daughter as a pawn in her battles with posters, the USEF, in court, and anywhere else she feels it will gain sympathy. This board functions as her vehicle for attention and without it she has no reach and no stage to reach her audience. She is not an agent of change.

    I'm gonna be a complete stick in the mud and say I'm not a big fan of these videos. Yeah, i giggled, and a certain line still makes me howl, but they make the opposition look immature and childish, especially with the new name. And they aren't really doing anyone any favors, seeing as how USEF has already had to pull their lawyers out in response.

    I just want to say the video is titled "come to Jesus."
    Diva of course took a little liberty with the spelling of the first word. I know it isn't a big thing, but the difference in meaning is important to me.

    Yes, I changed the name - in order to avoid insulting the Gambino family. The videos are works of fiction and aren't "about" anyone. She's so vain, she probably thinks this post is about her.

    The real question is: if she went to Saratoga and naturally her horse won, would it pass the spit box????

    I have a stupid question for those way more in the know. Where is her daughter's father while EM is dragging her name all over the place?

    It seems to me that everyone who has posted thus far has missed the opportunity to use the simple reply advocated by so many with faced with an idiot.

    I wouldn't want a monopoly either. I would need at least 5 to feel complete.
