I have to say you DID ask a simple question, that is true, but it was taken the wrong way.. you did write it a little weird, even I saw it as negitive. But this whole thread has been blown up. But again with the way things went with other NH posts with your replies .. Spirithorse may have gotten a little defensive.
Also Hannah and Blaze... what you said about the rearing up and striking out? She feels and knows that was aimed at her .. because that IS what blaze did.. BUT when did she call it dressage??? Also she's doing Dressage Naturally for fun she doesnt want to really compete .. she's all parelli that is what she does.. So if that WASNT aimed at her.. I would probably clear that up.. [sorry this is off topic I was just talking to her and wanted to get it out there] Again she never claimed it to be dressage, just that the movements COULD be done with Karen.. and its a start, she still needs to refine it a lot more but its a start.
With Jenny [SonnyWimps] I DO agree that she is VERY arguementive.. but you could have just ignored it all instead of provoking her more.. I also had no idea she was bashing Dressage.. but I got that idea from when I was talking to her today.. She clearly stated she disliked it.
Also we never said this was just about NH or parelli or anything of that matter.. Spirithorse just wanted to get other opinions of Karen or there experiences... she wasnt asking for other instructors or even mentioning parelli!
She wanted some opinion on Karen. I can understand you first few posts saying how you didnt really like her etc and posting some others for her to choose form just in case you know she find out she doesnt like karen.. you had EVERY right to post that, I will agree with you on that. But when her opinion obviously WASNT going to change you still kept posting more on other trainers! That's what I don't understand.. you could see she was set on that path .. that was clear... so why did you continue... if it was for OTHERS who may have been interested MAKE A NEW POST!!!! Don't HIJACK OTHERS!
I love that your trying to be helpful.. but it would do just the same in a new topic.. not going in others saying no she's bad [not saying you said that] etc and choose this over her.. This post could have been VERY helpful for people who were interesting in Karen NH OR NOT!
Btw this isnt ment to be an arguement or anything, just a discussion. :)
