What about this guy? Think he has potential?

If nothing else, it's a good demonstration of the program's versatility. . .

I agree with this...

It's time to stop with the jokes and 'jests' at this poster's demise...no wonder she hasn't been back. I mean, seriously? FIVE pages JUST of people making fun at this person's NH method?

Go research it, the method is real and is directed at YOUTH and CHILDREN...that is why it is called "think like a pony"...most kids call their horses ponies, doesn't matter how big they are...think people, before you start posting like that. Shame on all of you...

Someone hasn't had their happy pill today.

Jesting is not allowed as this is a very serious NH forum!

I think if she had come back and explained more about what it was about, the jokes woulda gone away... but she took only offense to the jests and didn't explain it.

I think 'think like a pony' means YOU think like a 'pony', so you understand your horse/pony not make your HORSE think like a pony lol

She didn't take offense - I actually think she took it very well.

I'm one of those who calls all my horses ponies, no matter how big :]

Ah, that's true. She did. Lol. I couldn't find a more suitable word for it.

I still think she could have been more informative about it though. X]

And me too. I'll ask my friends "So how are your ponies doing?" and they're like "Ponies? Huh?" lol.

I'm not taking offense, nor am I saying jesting isn't allowed, it's just that for 5 pages, everyone has jumped on the same boat...believing 1) that this person is just a sales person (look at page two, she came and explained more of herself, but I don't blame her for not coming back, after all the jokes continued), 2) assuming that the NH method that's been suggested is nothing more than a joke...again, look at MY original posts...I've explained in brief what the "think like a pony" method is, and given a link about it, and why it's called that...it's for the owner (child/youth) not the "horse" himself...
