When I got Nico, my friend (parreli for life!) was in serious shock that I wanted to let him settle in for a week and then jump on and see what the old boy had in store. He was at one time a very well broke horse who happened to dump his rider (so I've been told) and ended up spending a year basically feral. The snow made me wait a few more weeks before I could hop on...he was a bit uppity but nothing horrible. I think ground work is great! For someone who likes it...i just get bored to tears which in turn bores my horse to tears. Nico and I bonded much better with me riding than we ever did on the ground. He's just not that 'in your pocket' horse that everyone seems to want these days.

Coffeeaddict, you understand that you've heard one side of the story here, & that a thorough investigation of the issue isn't fulfilled by watching 2 dvd's once & letting anti-PP folks lead you to a hasty rejection of all-things-PP? You should pose the question on the Parelli Progress Thread, under Natural HMS, under Horse Training, for their feedback, as well as take the opportunities as they arise at your barn to observe/ask questions. My opinion at this point is that the 7 "Games" & the horsenalities & horse psychology/how horses think are valuable; the riding directives less so/mixture of good & incorrect.

Northern, you have a point. I can't really have an informed opinion when I've only watched two of the DVDs. If I find time I will watch more and try to have an open mind.

If they got to the point faster I'd probably have watched them all by now. There's just so much endless talking....

2. Speedracer- this has left me half frightened and half curious. Would pictures be a bad thing or would they make me laugh?
I think photos of both looks SR described are needed here.

C'mon now y'all, you should know there weren't such things as cell phone pics and scanners back in the day. All the pics I had were Polaroids, and I have no clue where they are at this time in my life. You'll just have to take my word for it; I was teh hawtness!

Heck, I can remember when fax machines first came out. They were such a huge leap forward technologically, and now they're completely outdated. People just don't fax anymore; everything is done electronically.

I can also remember when the first PCs came out. I first learned to use computers on something that looked like a huge teletype machine that used burst-bound green and white paper. There were no written commands, either. Everything was coded, and you had to know the codes.

Yes, I'm a dinosaur.

I am only slightly less extinct than you are as a dinosaur. I remember that stuff too.

Do you remember the ditto machines that used the blue ink stuff that smelled so cool?

Ooops, way off topic. Sorry.

I don't remember ditto copies. We used a mimeograph and the ink smelled disgusting.

I love it, you guys make me feel YOUNG. LOL, I'm getting too used to being around kids/teenagers and I just feel like an old lady all the time.

That and telling my niece "When you're really OLD like me you can do *insert inappropriate activity for non-adult here*"
