I think mimeograph was the real name.

You probably do not like the smell of markers either....

MN, one of my best riding buddies will be 14 this year. I love that kid, and for some reason she thinks I'm just the coolest!

Hey, I don't mind being the age I am. When I was 20 I thought I'd mind, but now that I'm here, I find that I don't.

Being older can be a blessing. You don't care if you have the latest fads, you're not constantly trying to one-up anyone, and you finally understand that the only truly important things in life are your health and those you love.

Maybe my cousins will think I'm cooler when I'm older. I'm 29 and they're 18, 17, and 14 and I swear half the times they think I'm the biggest dork ever. I just laugh though, when I was younger I was always worried about what people thought of me... now I don't care nearly as much and the older I get the less I care.

My 5 1/2 year old niece thinks I'm just about the coolest thing ever though. I can hardly wait until she can come trail riding with me! We had a really nice little "lesson" last night.

One of my best riding buddies is 12 and, like SR said, she thinks im pretty awesome. Im 30 now but i've honestly never cared much for whatever people think of me. I do my best and I love my life. If they don't, they can go pound salt.

To bring that thought back around to the OP, don't do Parelli just because everyone at your barn does. Im sure you are much better than that but I thought it was worth mentioning. I am the laughing stock of my barn where just because I ride western, I am abusive. I don't do Parelli so I'm "Clueless to the language of the horse" As they say, the proof is in the pudding. My horse is far from perfect but he sure does behave better than theirs!

You shouldn't stop watching it. There is so much wonderful information in those DVDs.

Coffeeaddict, you mentioned endless talking in the anti-PP gang? What to speak of rambling off-topic for far too many posts!

Threads evolve, get over it. :roll:

Spirit, I think we know enough about 'the program'. You're just having sour grapes because not everyone thinks the Mustachioed One and his Bitter Half are all that and a bag of Cheetos.

I don't need to watch DVDs and buy useless, expensive crap to be able train my horses to have good ground manners.

PNH isn't anything more than common sense horsemanship tarted up with fancy names and glittery packaging.

From your posts, no, you don't know the first thing about what the program IS. And why would I have sour grapes when I could care less what you think of Parelli or myself simply because I follow the program? I stopped caring what others think a long time ago and just listen to my horse, he tells me everything I need to know.
