Please, please, please do not ride while your horse is Aced. You won't accomplish anything while he's on it (if you've ever been sedated, you know that memory retention goes out the door) and you're putting yourself in danger; again if you've ever been sedated, you've been told not to operate machinery - there's a reason for that. Your coordination and reaction times get lethargic, and you are a danger to those around you.
Please, do NOT ride your horse on Ace.
On to your training problems: Parelli might work, it may not. Personally I am not a fan of Parelli, I think it's over-rated. You need to work with a trainer that is right there with you, correcting you immediately and praising you immediately. DVDs won't do that; you have no idea if you're doing something wrong till you post the video for others to see, then you've done something wrong, haven't corrected it, and you will be guessing at it next time.
No, IMO you need someone right there to help you. I want you to find a reputable trainer in your area and work with them on these issues - a good trainer will pay attention to your crosstie concerns as well as the issues under saddle. If a "trainer" is ok with you using Ace, run the other way.
