If our horses started thinking like ponies, we'd all be locked in a dark stall, gagged with carrots, and forced to ride in circles with foals on our backs. That is, if they let us live... *Shutter*

Hi again,

Gosh, no I'm not spam! This just looked like an interesting forum to get involved with and I wondered if any of you were interested or heard of Think Like a Pony!

It's certainly not an obscure training method, there's load of instructors out there at the moment and I've been having lessons for ages! I'm surprised that you've not heard of it.

Don't take it to heart, Alice. We just get a few people who join here and are either spruiking their own training method or posting to create debates and drama - Glad to hear you aren't either!

Welcome to the forum, and I look forward to hearing more about your way of training :]

This "just having some fun" could really hurt some poeple. Shame on all of who have posted hurtfull comments about ponies and this method. Its like a stab in the back to hear this from fellow natural horsemanship poeple. Please think about what you type into these commenting boxes next time.

As far as I know, ponies themselves cannot read, they do not regularly access online forums, and therefore are not at risk of being offended by people joking about how "evil" they are.

Also. . .the comments posted were meant in jest.

This forum is not the only place in the horse world where people joke about the "evilness" of ponies. . .or the stubborness of mules. . .or "those crazy Thoroughbreds." Pick any breed, any size, any type of equine and there is likely a stereotype about it.

"Parelli horsemanship is just like painting by the numbers. You need absolutely no skill. You just put this color here and this color there, and when you're done, you have ... a mess no one wants." mp
