    I will make something up to help you feel better.

    Seems Pat caught Linda in bed with David and a kholrhabi stick. She claimed they were only doing the 7 games. I dunno.

    As one of my mentors once said, "The creativity is there...if it could just be applied to the science..."

    Well, I did. Bet she's sorry now.

    No, I don't believe the O'Connors are officially affiliated with the Parellis any longer, but I don't know any reason(s) as to why.

    It is my understanding that there is not an 'official' promotion of joint training, however on Parelli boards there are people that 'study' at both places-so there is still something?

    Default This is what I heard

    No longer working w/the Parelli's cause the training tended to - now this is from a massage therapist I use from time to time here in NVA that I guess has worked with them (but who really knows) anyway....the approach tended to make the horses "more dependent" on the rider (can't quote but was the impression I got from the conversation)...just a little more than eventer's want - made sense to me at the time.

    Yes, and immediately after that Linda rode David bareback and helmetless and didn't have any contact with his mouth!

    And, to retaliate, Pat started coaching the American (not Canadian) team.

    I understand that Linda also left David tied up in one of the special ($59.99) halters...was he EVER mad about that. It wasn't just one thing, you know.

    Right. You should see how Linda tied him up with that left-handed longeline.
